Trending: Destiny Etiko Denies Rumoured Affair With Married Man
Nigerian actress, Destiny Etiko has dismissed rumours that she is having an affair with Tein Jack-Rich, a billionaire businessman.
The movie star has been in the news since she shared a picture of her newly-acquired Toyota Land Cruiser Prado Jeep worth millions of naira on her Instagram page.
Rumours had swirled shortly after picture of her new car went viral with some alleging that the oil magnate was the one sponsoring her luxurious life.
But in a video on her Instagram page on Sunday night, the 31-year-old denied the rumours, explaining that she had been an independent woman all her life.
Etiko also cursed those peddling such rumours, swearing that she has not met with Jack-Rich before.
“So I am here to clear the air. I don’t know this man you people speak of. As a matter of fact, I have never met him in my entire life. I swear with my life,” she said.
“I swear with everything I hold sacred. Infact, apart from my life, another person I hold so dear to my heart is my mother. I swear with my mother’s life.
“If I have ever met this man or him giving me any money or him sponsoring my projects or him even buying me a car, let it not ever be well with me and my generation but if not, these people cooking this whole thing up, the blogs sponsoring it, it shall never be well with you all and your entire generation.”
In a post accompanying the video, the actress called on the public to disregard the speculations, describing such as attempts to smear her image.
“I have been an independent hardworking woman all my life, all the haters, bloggers, friends in disguise and evil doers sponsoring false news about me all in the bid to tarnish my image and trend, this is for yo all,” she added.
“My God will continue to punish each and everyone dat has anything to do with since you don’t appreciate good things…greatness will be very far from you all in Jesus name.”
