The marital drama between nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh and her ex- husband, Olakunle Churchill has taken another dimension as Churchill has filed a Suit at the family court of the Lagos State Magistrate court.
The Court has ordered that the TV Reality Show called “King Tonto” being produced by Linda Ikeji Media Limited and featuring King Andre cannot be released or aired.
This is said to be the first step to be taken by Mr. Churchill towards protecting his son’s rights as captured under the Child Rights Law of Lagos State.
According to the news website Olakunle Churchill wants to protect his son’s image and which he feels is being exploited for financial gains.
“Such reality show exposes the life and times of the 1st Applicant, who is a minor, at a time when he cannot make a decision for himself, this exposure is prejudicial to his growth and welfare of his son, the 1st Applicant” reads the court document.
Pulse reached out to Tonto Dikeh’s rep who said he couldn’t reveal more about what is presently going on with the show.
” The truth is the issue has gone beyond what it is for now as it has now become a personal issue. I cannot tell you a yes or no but let’s leave it as it is for now,” he said.
Both Linda Ikeji and Oladunni Churchill were unavailable for comments.
A major highlight of the reality show teaser, was when she revealed that she went under the knife to get a cosmetic surgery.
“My body is something I have been extremely ashamed of” she further said in the clip as we see her in the nude in an operating room. There are scenes of Tonto Dikeh going under the knife also.
