BILLIONAIRE OIL MOGUL’S MISTRESS LIVING IN BONDAGE
-Family threatens to expose him
A billionaire oil mogul, names withheld, has been accused of plotting shady moves against his mistress who had a son for him early this year.
And this, ENCOMIUM Weekly learnt, has prompted the family to raise the alarm over her security and overall wellbeing. Simply named Moji, her son’s name is Shawn.
The reason Moji’s family and friends are worried is not that the man of means is not taking care of her. In fact, the billionaire’s baby mama is living in absolute opulence with houses in Magodo (Lagos) and Abuja (FCT) where she currently lives with her son.
Moji’s people are not comfortable with the fact that she has been totally cut off from her family even as she is surrounded by strangers employed by the oil tycoon as domestic staff.
According to them, Moji’s driver, cook, maids, name it, were hired for her by her billionaire lover.
“Moji is living in bondage and we fear for her life. We don’t know what this rich man wants to do with our sister. Yes, she’s comfortable but she is not allowed to relate with her family. She can’t even see her other children, a 17 year old girl and boy,13, she had for her late husband. We also don’t understand why this affair that has produced a child is wrapped in disturbing secrecy. What bothers us the more is that his wife even visits Moji and has warned her not to tell anybody she’s dating her husband. She’s not to tell anybody about her baby, too. Moji can’t live her life freely. Another lady shops for her. There are also many strange things happening around her I can’t disclose now. We would soon open up on this issue before we lose our sister in this web of deceit and mischievous conduct and lifestyle.
“All we now want is for him to release her from bondage. She doesn’t need the relationship anymore. And we would fight with the last drop of our blood to regain custody of our sister”, one of Moji’s relatives who pleaded anonymity for fear of victimization revealed.
Of Yoruba stock and also into property, Moji’s billionaire lover is said to be well connected. He started romancing Moji, a widow in her very early 40s a few years ago. Her first pregnancy for the tycoon was lost under suspicious circumstances (she was supposed to have twins!). The arrival of Shawn in whose name an Abuja luxury home has been bought for her, has not given Moji any stake in the life of the billionaire. She’s even allegedly being constantly intimidated by her rich lover, who has threatened to kick her out and take custody of Shawn if she “misbehaves”.
