Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Pere Egbi, has debunked claims that he is having an affair with the first lady of Kogi State, Rashida Bello.
The former US marine turned reality TV star took to his Twitter page on Tuesday to react to a tweet speculating that she is having an affair with Bello.
He also threatened a lawsuit against US-based journalist, Jackson Ude, who wrote the report on Twitter.
“For the records, the publication about me and the First Lady of Kogi State is a demonic lie and a figment of a diseased imagination of Jackson Ude and those retweeting that rubbish, they must answer me in court both in Nigeria and in the United States of America where he is based,” Pere tweeted.
Pere’s post came hours after Ude alleged that he was in a romantic relationship with the first lady.
Ude had in a tweet alleged that the gist making the rounds in Abuja is that Pere and Bello were having an affair.
“Why is #BBNaija Pere Egbi all over the place with Kogi First Lady, Rashida Bello? Gist around Abuja says that they are lovers. Egbi and Mrs Bello are said to have been sighted severally at the Hilton Hotel, Abuja. The gist is that when they first met, First Lady gifted Egbi N5 million,” Ude wrote.
Ude has, however, deleted the tweet.
But the first lady is yet to react to the allegations.
Pere was one of the housemates on the sixth season of the reality TV show.
