The internet went on a frenzy when the news of Nigerian singer, Paul Okoye (Rudeboy) of the now defunct music group, P-square, and his wife Anita Okoye getting a divorce was made public on Friday.
Anita filed for divorce and demanded a monthly payment of $15,000 (about N7.8m) as support.
In a court document which was signed before the Abuja High Court, Anita requested the dissolution of their marriage and also advised her now estranged husband in the legal document to challenge the petition if he feels disgruntled.
Anita also has demanded for a sum of $15,000.00 to be paid monthly for her children’s upkeep.
“Payment of a monthly maintenance sum of $15,000.00 (US Dollars) for the general welfare, education and health of the three children of the union who are presently in schools in the United States of America until they are of age,” part of the document read.
However, the one-page document which seems to be a fragment of a larger paper work does not have the court’s endorsement on it. Also, the petition number and other aspects of it were blurred.
The divorce did not come as a shock to some since Anita first sparked divorce rumours in April when it was reported that she relocated with their three children to the United States of America.
In 2019, she was accused by a popular aphrodisiac vendor of buying items to keep her marriage together. The vendor later took down the story from Instagram, Pulse reports.
Anita and Paul who were university sweethearts got married in 2014 in a very flamboyant wedding ceremony held in Port Harcourt.
