Anita Okoye, the estranged wife of popular Nigerian singer, Paul Okoye, has requested $15,000 (N7.8m) monthly as spousal support after slamming him with divorce papers.
In a petition filed at an Abuja High Court, Anita requested, amongst other things, “Payment of a monthly maintenance sum of $15,000.00 (US Dollars) for the general welfare, education and health of the three children of the union who are presently in schools in the United States of America until they are of age”.
She also advised Paul Okoye to challenge the petition if he feels disgruntled.
The news about the celebrity couple’s split broke on Friday, August 20, 2021. However, the cause of the divorce is still sketchy as at the time of filing this report as both parties are yet to issue an official statement in that regard.
It will be recalled that the celebrity couple who were university sweethearts got married in an elaborate ceremony in Port Harcourt in 2014.
The union produced three adorable children – Andre, Nadia and Nathan.
