Laide Bakare welcomed a baby boy on Friday May 31 in New York and now her estranged first husband, Olumide Okunfulure is claiming he’s the ‘baby-daddy’.
The twist in this story is that Laide Bakare is married to another man, Tunde Oriowo but her first husband, Olumide, is claiming he was still married to Laide when she got pregnant and quit their marriage controversially without hinting him.
Speaking from his base in Washington DC, the Ile-Oluji, Ondo State born businessman said: “I heard that my wife delivered a baby boy barely two months after she made a release that we were divorced, and she’s saying that the baby belongs to one Mr. Tunde Oriowo. That’s a lie, wicked lie. I’m the biological father. I have pictures to show that we were always together, but she deliberately kept the pregnancy out of my knowledge.”
He however said, “in other words, it might be the result of her extra-marital affair without my knowledge, because there were cases that she would leave me and our daughter in the US, come to Nigeria all in the name of promoting her movies but staying with married men in Lagos. I couldn’t monitor her because I was not always in Nigeria.” Olu Mighty as Olumide is fondly called by friends vowed to take legal action, as well do DNA test to ascertain the child’s paternity.
According to him; “I don’t want to put laws into my hands. So, I have already notified my lawyers in the US and already contacted my lawyers in Nigeria about the matter, because she has many questions to answer. If she wants to prove herself right, I challenge her to go for DNA test because that would unveil the true father of the baby.”
Olumide, the father of Laide Bakare’s first daughter, Similoluwa equally noted that he’s still legally married to the actress, saying that: “She’s still my wife. We’re legally married. She came to the States to deliver using my surname and my green card. It’s just unfortunate she’s using all the things I did for her to favour another man. So, our marriage is intact, legally. And if she wants to quit, legal action must be taken.”
