“The post destroyed my last relationship and I almost committed suicide” – Actress, Charity Nnaji speaks about her online begging scandal with Mompha
Nollywood actress and ex-beauty queen, Nnaji Charity have finally come out to address her online begging scandal with Dubai-based big boy, Mompha.
Recall that in December 2018, Mompha shared a screenshot of his DM showing where the Nollywood actress slid in to beg him for money and when he didn’t respond, she called him ‘Stingy Got’.
In her response, the former beauty queen and fashion model simply said,
‘I can never go offline because of this rubbish and this can not change my passion either’.
Speaking in an interview with Saturday Beats, Charity revealed she lost her last relationship because of the scandal, as her ex-boyfriend felt she wasn’t satisfied with the money he was giving her.
The actress also disclosed that she was left her depressed after the whole controversy and almost committed suicide.
“The man wanted to use that post to tarnish my image but interestingly, I became more popular after that scandal. I made good money from that post because people started supporting my non-governmental organisation. It has deprived me of so many things; I don’t want my past to affect my future.
“I almost drank acid after that post because he didn’t reveal the chat from the beginning. I sent that message to him about two years ago. I was so depressed; I had to stay offline for a while because the insults were too many.
“I am still trying to redeem my image from all these scandals because they have affected my relationship with people. There was a time I was in a meeting with a senator and immediately he entered my name on Google, he saw scandalous things about me. That moment, he refused to even take a picture with me. He was scared.
“The recent scandal about me begging for money online destroyed my last relationship. My ex-boyfriend felt I wasn’t satisfied enough with the money he was giving me. I tried to explain that the chat was an old conversation between me and the man, and that it had happened before I met him. It took me time to convince him. His friends were laughing at him, that his celebrity girlfriend was begging for money online. He said he was sleeping when his friends called him about the story, and that was the end of the relationship.”
