Reality TV star Mercy Eke has responded to an alleged blogger’s claim of an affair with Ikechukwu Ogbonna, better known as IVD.
On the latest episode of #WithChude, hosted by Chude Jideonwo, the 2019 BBNaija winner claimed that the blogger has been attempting to tarnish her image for four years after she refused to pay N200,000 to the blogger.
Explaining her side of the story, Mercy Eke said, “The blogger who posted the IVD issue has been on my cases forever. This person has tarnished my image and I have never responded.
“I heard it started when I was in BBNaija’s house where the blogger asked for N200k and they didn’t give him/her so since then the blogger vow to deal with me.
So when I came out of the house, I said I can’t pay for what I didn’t know and since then the blogger has been posting rumour about me and I won’t respond.
“But the IVD issue; someone just died, there is a case of domestic violence and the woman is my friend. The blogger just added my name to what I know nothing about. That I am sleeping with him.
“My manager, personal assistant, and lawyer advised me that it’s time I defend myself. That would be the last time I would react to a rumour about me.
“I just needed to clear that one because it’s been four years of the blogger tarnishing my image.”
The identity of the blogger was not disclosed neither was the blogger’s platform revealed.
