You will recall that in October, 2013, Nollywood actress, Doris Simeon had gone to the press to say that her estranged husband, movie producer and director, Daniel Ademinokan, and fellow actress, Stella Damasus, had seized her son, David, and that she has not seen nor spoken to the boy since 2011.
Many movie watchers and sympathizers rallied behind her, castigating Stella and Daniel to no end. In fact, many were ready to take up arms against Stella, calling her many unprintable names.
But the man in the eyes of the storm, Daniel, has come out to debunk all Doris said. In a letter he allegedly wrote to Pastor Ituah Ighodalo, the founder and General Overseer of the Trinity House, a mega church located in Victoria Island, Lagos, Daniel explained that his ex-wife is a pathological liar, serial adulteress and is only playing on people’s psyche to get their empathy.
After the letter, Daniel provided text message evidence to show that Doris has been in constant communication with him and her son, and that he even offered to pay her flight ticket to the United States of America twice a year to see her son but that what she says in public are quite different from what they discuss in private.
Read the letter Daniel Ademinokan wrote to Pastor Ighodalo.
Good day sir,
How is the family sir and the ministry?. I hope all is well. I know that by now, you’re probably tired of my case but you are the only one I can speak to at this point.
It seems, sir, that the moment Doris speaks to everyone and brings out her ‘acting’, people just flip and turn.
Nobody sees when she calls and threatens and curses the life out of me and everything else. But I always have taken it with a pinch of salt.
Like you said sir, she has a right to be angry and do anything, but I equally have a right to have my son and look out for his best interest. I have a right to be angry and run to the press to talk about all her infidelity and affairs, but I chose not to because I was the fool who looked away because I wanted to keep my home. I was the one playing ‘mumu’ for her.
After all the lies she told in court, am I still supposed to just be granting her every single request and need? She lied that she has not seen David and I since 2011. This is the same girl that came to Abuja twice to see David and I.
The same girl that I flew to Lagos to see personally and privately to discuss David’s custody. This was in January. We also met in London in March when I went to shoot a music video. I have pictures to prove it. I even gave her money to shop as well. It was in London she told me about her new affair with Wale. I didn’t crucify her, I just told her to be careful and find true happiness, period! What she does with herself is really none of my direct business.
Pastor, based on what you and I discussed, I offered to fly her to the United States twice a year, all expenses paid for by me, so she can bond with David. I also said she can come 1 million times if she likes but I will only pay for two trips. She refused.
Now she still wants to be calling me every second to bother me about David in private when she is making a mess of my character in the press and the public. She is using everything and everyone out there to mess me up and I’m supposed to still give her audience and grant all her wishes?
Pastor, na this girl life I go tie my whole existence to? How can I continue to be civil with her when she is playing dirty and acting holy to everybody?
Nobody is seeing what I’m seeing and it is just a pity. She does not care about David. She is doing all this gra gra just to save face. She wants to ruin David’s life all in the name of Winning!!
Pastor, below is a conversation I had with Doris before your trip to the US that we spoke. How does this show that I have been mean to her? How does this show that I kept her away from David? She used to talk to him every single day. The dates are right there and she has just been lying to everyone. I was forced to send this to you because I am just tired of all her endless lies and pretense.
I’ve refused to speak to her since because she cannot be killing me on both sides. If she wants to talk and dialogue, she should get outta court and stop messing me up in the press with her media sugar daddies. If she wants to stay in court, I don’t have a problem with that. She should leave me alone and do according to the court rulings.
See a recorded version of their chats on May 3, 2013.
Doris: “My being quiet does not mean am fool.” (10:34 AM)
Daniel: “Doris, I’m not interested in your tales. It’s the well-being of David and sharing custody that’s my business. If I see a chance that will give my son better opportunities in a foreign country, I will take it and that’s what I did. If you wish him well, you will think of him first. Right now, it is clear that what you are about is WINNING! Getting your son regardless of what it will mean to him and his future.” (10:37 AM)
Doris: “Is that what you think?” (10:38 AM)
“Ok yes, it’s about winning.” (10:39 AM)
“So do your worst.” (10:39 AM)
“Been trying to call you all day but your phones are not working.” (12:33 AM)
Daniel: “Maybe network.” (12:35 AM)
“Called you back a million times the day you were talking to David but you didn’t pick up.” (12:36 AM, May 3, 2013)
Doris: “My other fone not with me then (sic).” (12:36 AM)
Daniel: “Ok. Pastor Ituah called me.” (12:37 AM)
“Did you give him my number?” (12:37 AM)
“Glad he called.” (12:38 AM)
Doris: “Yes.” (12:38 AM)
Now we have heard from Daniel and it is all square. What next do we expect?
