Wading into the custody battle between the estranged couple, Mrs. Fani-Kayode claimed Chikwendu’s allegations against the former Minister were mainly false.
In a statement at the weekend, Regina said: ‘‘Precious Chikwendu, a strange woman that he took under his roof, married under law and custom, and lived with for seven years. Who are you trying to fool? You are nothing but a wretched ingrate and God will punish you and all your siblings for your ingratitude and lies.
‘‘Precious, you are just a sick woman and a big liar. I know you collected over half a million USD dollars from Femi within the first few months of meeting him for a fake investment.
“We have witnesses to prove it and remember that you even asked me to thank him for it. I also know he set you up in one business or the other four times in seven years and got you offices etc. but you squandered it all’’.
Chikwendu had filed a suit seeking custody of their four children, alleging Fani-Kayode assaulted her times without number.
The ex-beauty queen alleged the ex-minister denied her access to her children for several months, asked the court to compel Fani-Kayode to give her a monthly payment of N3.5m for the upkeep of the four sons.
Regina went on: ‘‘You knew he was still married to me because you and I spoke countless times on the phone and you even stayed in my room and wore my clothes.
‘‘You had nothing when he took you in, you are so ungrateful. Six of your relatives lived in my house for six years and they were all depending on Femi for food, upkeep, medical bills, and school fees. Even your sister’s wedding was paid for by him’’
According to her: “When you came to my husband and took over my home you and your family were like hungry refugees. You had nothing but rubber slippers and you were desperate for help.
“My husband sent three of your siblings to the best schools for seven years and took care of their every need yet you now slander him and insult him not minding the effect it will have on your own children. That in itself proves that you are insane.
“You say he has mental issues meanwhile you were the one that was locked up in a mental hospital for one month after trying to kill him and his children.
“You stated in the home of a man with mental problems for six years and allowed your mother, Aunty, two brothers, and sisters to stay there too?
