Out-of-love celebrity partners Paul Okoye (FKA Rude Boy of the defunct P-square) and Anita Isama have officially seen the end of their eight-year marriage today, as mandated by an Abuja High court sitting in Maitama.
Anita and Paul who tied the nuptial knots in 2014 have recently been experiencing estrangement, with Anita particularly going all out to nullify the marriage, citing cheating, separation, being an absent father, fraud, and difficult experiences as her major reasons for doing so.
As part of her settlement, she requested a monthly settlement of $20,000 and a number of her husband’s properties.
Earlier on, in her divorce petition signed by her lawyer, Ojonimi Akpe and Okutepa J.S at an Abuja High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Maitama, Anita had earlier claimed that she contributed N10 million as an agreement with her husband that she would be granted space at the mall he had just completed in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos. However, she accused Paul Okoye of cheating her out of a deal.
The petition reads in part, “That I know as a fact that the petitioner founded a company called TannkCo in 2019.
“That the petitioner and the respondent agreed to build a mall where TannkCo would have its main offices, and the petitioner contributed N10,000,000.00 (Ten Million Naira) for the purchase of the land and the building of the mall.
“That I know as a fact that the respondent, upon completion of the mall, reneged on the agreement and failed to give TannkCo a space in the mall.”
According to multiple reports, it has been stated that Anita chose to withdraw her suits, following her inability to prove all of the claims in her petition to the court.
Consequently, the court in its judgment granted joint custody of the children to the parties on October 20, 2022.
Their union was blessed with three children: Andre — born in 2013, and the twins, Nathan and Nadia, born in 2017.
