Popular Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh got entangled with a luxury shopper this afternoon on Instagram.
The luxury shopper simply identified simply as Pearl chuks (@pumpsberry) called the actress out for allegedly owing her a lot of money (about N192,000) for a bag she bought on credit. The aggrieved businesswomen took to instagram, making it known how she gave the actress a fake Givenchy bag after she could not afford the original version, adding that it has been over a month now and the actress hadn’t made effort to pay for it. The aggrieved business woman said:
“Dear @tontolet,thank you for pushing me beyond my comfort zone.I trusted you as a celebrity and gave you a Givenchy luggage bag and handbag with you promising you will pay,you couldn’t afford the original so you asked for the replica.
“You ordered March 8th it was delivered March 20th and u had to pay that day but.its been over one month and it’s been story after story,you ignore my messages and calls,you claim you assistant was going to pay me,I called Peter and he said the check you gave him of the 8th bounced on the 10th. Dear Tontoh I am a young girl 23yrs old trying to run a business.
“I am embarrassed and I am upset at myself that I trusted you as a public figure to pay me back,now I ask you my money you block me on Instagram?Who does that?when I read the tiannah story I thought it was a lie but I am still amazed at the fact that you have stooped so low and blocking me when you owe me.You will pay me by fire by force,you will not bully me.
“I have lost respect for you as a woman and as a human. I will make sure everyone knows who you really are so you don’t go dupe another young girl,thank God I didn’t give you the authentic bags if not where will I be?God sees all the devil we do and it will come back to you x10000.repay my money.lets not forget the moschoni dress shirt and you just called to threaten me?that weed you are smoking is really making you delusional.You are a sorry excuse of a celebrity when real celebrities and actresses call themselves please remove you name from the list.''
However, the actress responded to the allegation, saying she did not owe the lady in question. Responding to her, Tonto said:
“I Am not really the type to keep messages but am glad I did in this particular case. ‘A young lady claims I owe her,as a celebrity,people think it is easy to scare us with the press but am sorry not this time . After stalking my life through social media and text messages,I succumbed to ordering some items from this young lady in a way to support her business, she was truthful that she sold only not the originals and convinced me by sending messages of her previous deal with Omotola the actress n few others n I told her i didn’t want but she convinced me and since it was my younger friend’s birthday, I took pity I asked for the items*
”When I saw these things they were so fake*I asked her to come back and take the items severally as it has been with my house manager,we have never tried to pay her and We never gave her no cheque. ”I know she might be pretty upset and I will forgive u but Am sorry I wouldn’t buy nothing from u and I promise no celebrity will buy from you… None of the message she posted online is on my phone….OK back to something better,” she wrote.
