ACTOR, YEMI SOLADE CLEARS AIR ON ALLEGATION THAT HE SENT HIS NUDE PICTURE TO MARRIED WOMAN
Star actor, Yemi Solade has denied allegation made by a married female fan that he sent her his nude pictures using his blackberry.
Mrs. Bunmi Ladipo had in 2011 alleged that the 55-year-old actor used his nude pictures to woo her after they met on facebook, and subsequently exchanged blackberry pin numbers.
A scandal the media feasted on, the thespian told Punchng.com that Mrs. Ladipo was his fan who was left aggrieved after he was rude to her on phone.
He said, “I still have to say it is part of show-business. But then, things like that don’t bother me. One so-called fan couldn’t believe I was the person she was chatting with on social media. She suggested I put my hand in my mouth, snap and send to her. I said what kind of nonsense was that?
“She called from the US but I missed her call. I didn’t return the call because there was no need for me to do that. But two or three weeks later, she called and the tone she used was very harsh. To make matters worse, she called one Friday when one producer was supposed to pay me. My eyes were already ‘red’ and I wasn’t in the mood to entertain any pleasantries. Her tone wasn’t just what I needed. And I exchanged hot words with her. After that, I went on Facebook to alert my colleagues to beware of such person. To fight back, she probably paid somebody who took a location bedroom picture and said I was sending nude pictures to her.
“So many people felt it was ‘hot’ news and decided to cash in on it. But I felt it was not a big deal to talk about. The girl’s family called me and apologised. I don’t celebrate mediocrity or any form of mundane acts. I just kept quiet. I didn’t need to go to the media and say how it happened. I didn’t commit any criminal offence.”
