Adeniyi Johnson’s wife, actress Seyi Edun, responded to her husband’s explanation of his relationship with a woman who posted a video of herself and the actor with a suggestive caption.
On Monday, a woman who is thought to be a fan of the 44-year-old uploaded the video to social media with the caption, “The King that rules my world. Love you pappy. I miss you so much. Come back to mummy.”
Furious fans were misled into thinking the actor was having an affair with the woman by the caption.
During the backlash, his failed marriage to actress Toyin Abraham, formerly Toyin Aimakhu, and the subsequent infidelity saga were revisited.
As the criticism continued, Adeniyi Johnson was forced to put out a statement on Instagram on Monday, where he cleared the air on what transpired between himself and the lady.
The actor described the lady as an “overzealous fan” who put out a misleading caption after she begged to take pictures and make videos with him.
He also apologised to his wife Seyi for the embarrassment the video may have caused her.
Reacting in the comment section of the post, Seyi Edun forgave her husband as she reassured the latter of her love and support.
She wrote: “Oya sope Otilor… Izzz gone now. I gat you baby for life.”
Adeniyi and Seyi got married after his divorce from Toyin Abraham was finalised.
