Divorce Scandal: Anita Okoye Reportedly Demands $15,000 Monthly Support from Paul Okoye
While the rumour of a breakup between celebrity couple, Paul Okoye and Anita Tonye Isama, continues to fly around since Friday, Anita has reportedly demanded for $15,000 monthly support from Rudeboy. Paul Okoye’s alleged estranged wife reportedly filed for the request at the Abuja High Court – but this is yet to be independently confirmed.
“Payment of a monthly maintenance sum of $15,000.00 (N7.8 million) 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,” a section of the court application reads.
Since both Anita and Rudeboy – formerly of P-Square fame – have not independently confirmed the rumours of their separation, their silence continues to fuel the speculations surrounding the famous couple. Paul Okoye became irritated when a phone call was put across to him to confirm the situation of things, “You people should stop calling me about this s**t,” he said and hung up the call.
Peter, Paul’s twin brother, would not also confirm the rumour when he was contacted. “We do not have the authority to discuss this issue at the moment,” he said.
According to the BBC, Anita was born on November 8, 1988, and is a native of Anambra State. She studied Law at the University of Abuja and met Paul during one P-Square event at the university campus in 2004. They dated for some time and she gave birth to their first child in 2013, prompting them to get married in 2014. She later obtained her Masters in Oil and Gas from the University of Dundee in Scotland.
Anita was project manager with AMG Petronergy Limited from 2010 to 2013, and worked as business development executive with Desicon Engineering Limited from 2014 to 2018. She was the Social Justice Ambassador for ActionAid Nigeria and the CEO of Tannko, a children’s wear brand in Lagos. She is also the co-founder of Little Luxe, a lifestyle furniture company; and also the co-founder of Cashew Apple Project, a not-for-profit organization.
Anita and Paul have three children between them.
