Here's a timeline of the ongoing dispute between BBNaija Queen and Lord Lamba

The pair previously dated before becoming parents to their baby girl.

Lord Lamba and Queen Mercy are currently in a custody battle for their daughter Princess Kielah

In case you're wondering why? Here is a timeline of their dating history and when things went sour.

In December 2022, Queen took to Instagram to announce her pregnancy, but did not reveal the identity of the father. Following her announcement, reports claimed that Lord Lamba is the father but neither she nor Lamba confirmed this.

In January of 2023, Queen Mercy posted clips from her intimate baby shower with her team and family saying she was "Sharing my happiness with the ones that love me genuinely." She shared pictures and videos from the event and excitedly revealed that she is having a baby girl. Her child Princess Kielah was born on December 25, 2022.

One year after giving birth, Queen revealed Keilah's identity on her first birthday and posted stunning pictures from the birthday photoshoot. The mother and daughter duo sported dazzling blue gowns, however, she still does not reveal the identity of the father.

The ongoing drama began on this year in February when Queen announced her engagement to her partner David and showed him off for the first time.

On this same day, Lord Lamba confirmed that he was Keilah's father by posting pictures of him and the baby girl. He also posted a page of Keilah's international passport, showing her last name was the same as his.

While Queen received congratulatory messages for her engagement, discussions to determine why Lord Lamba chose that day to reveal his paternity began to swell on social media.

In March, 2024, Lord Lamba disclosed his reasons for not posting Kielah saying that he made sure to spend time with her offline. “Me spending time with my child in public (real life) makes more sense to me than social media. My child is not a clickbait or my craft," he said.

At the beginning of March, a petition dated February 16, 2024, circulated online. The petition was addressed to the Family Court of Lagos State in Ikeja, and in it Lord Lamba requested custody of their daughter on claims that he was denied access to Keilah despite consistently paying child support.

In the document, he also criticised Mercy for leaving their daughter in the care of other people while she travelled to the UK to get engaged on January 29, 2024.

In the middle of March, old screenshots from the pair began circulating on social media, showing an outraged Lord Lamba demanding to see their child.

"Queen I’m not taking this anymore firstly, I need to see my child this week. common this is wickedness. You blocked me everywhere. I have always wanted to be with my daughter, and now you a giving me conditions While you have always been with another man, even when we were still dating, but you're busy monitoring me. Queen you got engaged a month after we had issues," parts of the alleged chat read.

Amidst the dispute, a video surfaced online showing Queen crying and urging Lord Lamba to spend more time with Kielah. She claimed that he had only seen their daughter three times in eight months, which was when they spent three nights at his place.
