Award-winning Nigerian singer, 2Face Idibia has filed a N100 million lawsuit against a local soft-sell magazine, Icon Weekly, for libel.
The lawsuit was filed by the Media/Entertainment Law Firm of L & A- Legal Consultants on behalf of Tuface, at the Ikeja High Court asking the court to award their client the sum of N100million being damages for the libelous publication posted on the magazine’s online and print platforms sometime in February this year.
Icon Weekly magazine had published a story claiming that a young Lagos banker named Teniola, who was supposedly Tuface’s account officer in one of the new generation banks was 3-months pregnant for him.
Tuface had denied the report while his wife, Annie had taken to twitter to defend her husband.
However, it has just been revealed by a source close to the singer that the story which turned out to be false had at that time affected Annie, causing a rift between the couple.
Not only did it cause a rift in the marriage, Tuface was said to have lost a very lucrative deal due to the scandal.
Meanwhile, Icon weekly is said to have approached Tuface’s team for discussions on a possible out of court settlement.
