Why I Want N3.5m Monthly Child Support From Femi Fani-Kayode — Ex-Wife

Chikwendu, who’s demanding full custody of their four sons, made the allegations in an affidavit she deposed in support of an originating motion brought pursuant to Section 69 of the Child’s Rights Act, 2003. “From the early days of our relationship, the respondent (Fani-Kayode), has always maintained a lifestyle of utter disregard to my feelings. This was evident in the way and manner the respondent assaulted me while pregnant with our first son. The respondent (Fani-Kayode) kicked me severally on my stomach over a petty argument that ensued.

Why Kate Middleton Was Banned From Wimbledon

It’s no secret that Kate Middleton is a huge fan of Wimbledon. Every year, almost without fail, we see the Duchess of Cambridge in the royal box cheering on the best tennis players in the world as they compete for the prestigious title.
But if you cast your mind back to 2013, you might remember that Kate was nowhere to be seen during the epic final that saw Andy Murray beat Novak Djokovic – and it turns out that avid tennis fan Kate had actually been banned from the event.
During an interview as part of a BBC documentary about tennis, Kate revealed why she was told she wasn’t allowed to attend the world famous competition.



‘I was very heavily pregnant. I wrote to him [Murray] afterwards saying sorry for not being there,’ she said.
The Duchess was eight months pregnant with Prince George at the time, and gave birth just two weeks after the final. When she asked her doctor if she could go, the response was: ‘definitely not’.
She also revealed that her love for tennis runs in the family, confessing: ‘Roger [Federer] is my mother’s heartthrob. I don’t think she will mind me saying that!’
However, her dad is a little less clued up on the players.
‘My father is not going to appreciate this but we were walking past Tim Henman and had just seen Sampras play,’ Kate said.
‘My dad said, “Hi, Pete!” I was mortified.’
Kate admitted that she has always been a huge tennis fan, even before she became royalty.
‘Being able to go into Wimbledon and be part of an amazing atmosphere is special. It inspires young people, including myself. Every time Wimbledon is on I am thinking, “Yes, I could do the same,” and get out the racket.
Sadly, not the same results.’
