In excerpts from her post on her blog ,she wrote
father of my child is a single man and his name is Sholaye Jeremi. To
be honest, at some point I thought he was my final bus stop but you know
how life happens…lol. Unfortunately he and I are a completely closed
chapter. Sadly for our son Jayce, it’s the kind of chapter that can’t
ever be opened again.
Opening up on how they met,she revealed
of the things many people have asked me is how I met this man because
we don’t run in the same circle. Well, I met him 3 years ago at
Wheatbaker Restaurant in Ikoyi in December 2015 shortly after I moved to
my home in Banana Island, Ikoyi. It was a day after Christmas and I was
having dinner with friends when he walked in. He saw me and the rest is
claimed at the time that he had never heard of me which was seriously a
turn-on for me because up until then I’d only been meeting men who
behaved like fans. At the time we met, I was 35 and he was 37 and I’d
been single for nearly 4 years. I was definitely searching and I fell in
love almost immediately and so we became an item.
At the time I met him he lived in a 3-bedroom flat at what used to be 5roundabout
in Lekki after Mobil. I used to drive for almost two hours in traffic
from my house to go see him. Most of the time, I carried my laptop to
his home to enable me to work and at the same time spend the whole day
was a whirlwind romance. He was the funniest and most romantic guy I’d
met up until that point, so it was easy to fall in love and I truly
believed the feeling was mutual. A few weeks after we met, it seemed
like we were planning a future together. This man was already calling me
Linda Ikeji Jeremi and making all these plans but then just like that,
it was over between us.
went from waking up every morning to love text messages from him to no
more calls. I was just thanking God for finally sending me my own man
when all of a sudden we were no longer talking to each other. Later he
would tell me what scared him off. My public life. He claims he’s a
private business man and didn’t want the attention being with me would
bring to him and I told him I understood and we went our separate ways.
We tried to get back together in 2016 but it didn’t work out so much so
we separated again but stayed in touch (mostly him to be honest), stayed
friends and that was how our back and forth started.
mid-2017, we were both still single and we started seeing each other
again quietly. There were times it was very intense and we talked about a
future together, and there were times that I couldn’t figure out what
exactly I was doing with this guy. We were not suited for each other.
Totally different lifestyles. And there was the problem of my fame. I
walked away from this man a million times and he came after me a million
and one times. No matter how much I pushed him away, he kept coming
back and me, because I couldn’t find anyone else, I kept going back.
Lol. So I was basically going back to my ex because I couldn’t find
anyone else. *sigh*.
I fell pregnant. It wasn’t planned, it just happened; though we talked
about having a child together just two months before I fell pregnant. He
said something about putting a billionaire baby inside me and I
remember jokingly telling him that I’m also a billionaire so our child
was going to be a billionaire on both side…and we laughed. But after I
fell pregnant, things became extremely weird between us. If I tried to
explain what happened, I wouldn’t be able to because it was confusing to
went from talking about the pregnancy and being okay with it; he even
suggested I go to Dubai for my pre-natals as he didn’t trust doctors in
Nigeria, to literally not talking to each other anymore. Around when I
was about three months pregnant, he did come to see my parents and
actually became very cool with my dad. They were literally exchanging
Whatsapp messages every day.
later agreed to a traditional wedding which he didn’t follow through
and then he switched. He began to treat me with so much hate and
aggression that I and my family had to cut him off completely.
be honest if anybody had told me when we met three years ago,
considering how deeply we cared for each other that I would fall
pregnant two years later and he would completely turn his back on me for
most part of my pregnancy, I never would have believed it but that’s
what happened. I had to draw strength from myself, my family and close
