Dikeh revealed that her ex-husband has never contributed to the boy’s education or attempted to visit him despite being ordered to pay for Andre’s CS fees which he paid only for 4months before telling the court that he was broke.
The mother of one went on to describe Churchill as a liar for telling people that she denies him access to King because he refused to buy her a house.
She further stated that she regrets having Churchill as the father of her child, describing him as the worst thing that ever happened to her father’s bloodline.
Churchill Olakunle Threatens Lawsuit Against Tonto Dikeh
The businessman’s lawyer sent a Cease and Desist letter to the actress demanding that she retracts all the” false statements” she has made against him and his wife, Rosy Meuerer, on social media and apologize within 24 hours, otherwise, they will invoke the full and compelling force of the law against her.
In the letter dated February 21, Churchill’s counsel, West Africa Solicitors, claimed Tonto has over time published falsehoods against Churchill and Rosy on her Instagram page.
In the three-page letter, the lawyers stated that Tonto has ’deceitfully labeled” their client as a ‘’blackmailer, a fraudster, thief, irresponsible father, and a violent person’ without giving any evidence to back up the claim.
The lawyers said that Tonto has repeatedly ‘’lied” that Churchill blackmailed her into paying for their wedding when she knows that ‘’there was never a wedding.”
According to the lawyers, Tonto’s claim that she spent N7 million for their wedding is false as the only event that took place was a parlor event in which Tonto’s dowry was paid and the ceremony was attended by just four persons.
The lawyers also stated that Tonto peddled a false claim that she was friends with Rosy Meurer, Churchill’s current wife, and accused her of ‘’snatching him”.
They said Tonto’s claim has brought disrepute to Rosy, as she put it out there just to ‘’gain public pity and cheap popularity.” They argued that Rosy was never Tonto’s friend and was never acquainted with her in any way prior to her wedding to Churchill. They also stated that Tonto has no proof to back up her claim that she and Rosy were friends.
The lawyers also pointed out that Tonto has repeatedly labeled their client, Olakunle Churchill, a fraudster, which they say is absolutely false.
They further stated that Tonto has made claims that Churchill physically assaulted her during their marriage but has no proof to back up her claim.
They also described as completely false, Tonto’s claim that Churchill is irresponsible with regard to their son, King Andre’s upkeep.
The lawyers said these allegations have caused Churchill public humiliation and are demanding Tonto retract them and tender an apology within 24 hours or risk being filed a defamatory lawsuit.

She said, “You and the person who wrote that letter are sick in the head. Apologies to who? Desist from what? YOU ALL ARE JOKERS..
“You are all delusional.. You get absolutely nothing and you and 1,000 lawsuits can’t do shit.. My voice and truth can’t be silenced. You are a dead beat, A WOMAN BEATER, A RITUALIST, YAHOO BOY AND SCAMMER… The audacity”
The actress added, “Expect my next post in 24 hours…I should apologise to you two church rats. I have suffered”
