Olunloyo said her baby daddy also told their son that she was the one who prevented him from being in their lives for years.
"My oldest son's father has never reached out to me before going to reunite with him in America. Enitan says his father Mr Babs Ogunade VP Nigerian Basketball Federation told him I kept him away when in fact we were abandoned, denied and owed $102,000 (N51M) child support from Feb 1987-2005.
The journalist made a reference to how her son who was formally autistic has now left the spectrum but still can’t process some facts of life.
In a different portion of her post, Olunloyo prayed the Lord to forgive her baby daddy while recounting her struggles back in the days when she raised their son.
"I never had a life between 22yo and 45yo. No parties, clubs, vacations etc what young people do in University. I was raising a baby lecturers held while I was taking exams. Other students babysat for me, sometimes I took the child on his carrier to class and still managed to get a first class degree. So much pain you put me through."
The journalist accused Ogunade of turning their son against her, adding that they now have each other.
