Big Brother Naija ‘Level Up’ housemate, Phyna has finally opened up on her altercation with co-housemate, Chichi during the reunion.
It was reported during BBNaija Reunion, that Phyna accused Chichi of abandoning her husband and children in Benin City, which led to the death of one of her children.
She also alleged that Chichi had used her dead parents as a strategy to win the show.
Phyna had also age-shamed her as she claimed Chichi is 33, as well as called her a stripper.
Additionally, Phyna also alleged that Chichi poisoned her friend in Cyprus due to jealousy.
Now speaking on it during an interview with Chude Jideonwo, Phyna stated that her outburst stemmed from the words Chichi used against her, which the show organizers didn’t air.
She revealed that Chi-Chi called her an abortionist and also body-shamed her, which made her flare up.
Phyna pointed out the irony of how Chichi could body shame her, when she has a natural body, unlike her who went under the knife to get a curvier shape.
Speaking on the lawsuit, Phyna stated that she wasn’t afraid of being sued as she had already prepared to battle things out with her in court.
“The way I attacked her they should have known she said something, that part was mute. Because the previous day, you body shamed me, you called me shapeless and saggy boobs, that’s why I had to use the word for her that she would record in her heart and brain. Because you can’t be body-shaming me that have a natural body, I had to remind her that there are stuff.
You called me an abortionist, I reminded you that you have two kids that you abandoned.
Two days later, she is suing me in court for N100 million for libel and defamation of character. I called my lawyer that if we didn’t reply to the lawsuit, what would happen? My lawyer said if we didn’t reply within 7 days, she could charge me in court. The next day I bought a suit to prepare for court.
I don’t like trouble but I love trouble”.
