Delectable Nollywood actress, Doris Simeon has finally cleared the air on the raging rumour that she was having a sizzling romance with music act, Minjin. She also opened up on the truth about the car story which she purportedly bought recently and was posing with online.
In an exclusive chat with ENCOMIUM Weekly on Friday, September 13, 2013, the beautiful thespian shed light on the issues:
“I wonder why anyone would start a baseless story. I was on set with a colleague, Biodun Okeowo and took a picture with her Honda Pilot and next thing is Doris Simeon gets a new toy and now Minjin buys Doris Simeon a car?
“I’ve decided to keep mum and face my career and live the best of my life in God’s guidance, but someone keeps imagining things. I work for heaven’s sake and I can confidently and comfortable acquire an automobile of my choice! Why would I date Minjin to buy a car. Just because we worked together on a movie set does that mean we are dating or what?
“All I can say is I don’t have anything to do with Minjin or men that people keep linking me with. I’m focused on building my career and taking it to the zenith and I’m not ready to be distracted,”
It was reported that while her husband is in the bosom of another woman, Doris Simeon has also found succour in the shoulder of a promising act called Minjin, one of the dudes on the label of Kennis Music.
These two entertainers were said to be madly in love with each other ever since they started having an affair. Their relationship purportedly started about six months ago but they both agreed never to make it public.
Rumour mongers claimed that Minjin can do anything for Doris and that was why he flew in from America few days for her birthday.
The birthday allegedly kicked off at Doris Simeon’s residence with friends and close family members while an after-party came up at one of the most patronized clubs by Lagos big boys, Mo-lounge at Agidingbi, Lagos.
At the club, having arrived in the same ride, a black 2012 Nissan Prado Jeep into the club, they were said to have held each other’s hands as they walked majestically into the clubhouse.
However, a very close aide of the actress debunked the tale saying they only shot a movie together.
