Toni Payne never cheated on me’ – 9ice Finally Opens Up After 6 Years
6 years after the Nigerian entertainment scene was hit by one of the biggest marriage scandals ever, the truth has finally come to bare.
9ice has finally revealed that his ex-wife Toni Payne ‘never cheated on him’ and that the song which led to the whole speculation, ‘Once bitten twice shy’ was not about her.
In a statement posted on the singer’s social media accounts, he disclosed that he has never accused Toni of philandering neither did he tell anyone anything like it.
‘I have NEVER accused her or told anybody that she cheated on me because she DID NOT. It did not happen and it was never an issue. Let me be very clear. Toni Payne NEVER cheated on me. Some marriages do not work for different reasons’, the statement read in part.
Nigerian media was awash with stories of infidelity on the part of Toni Payne in 2009 following the release of the song. Despite repeated claims that she wasn’t the one being referred to and she had infact been present when the song was being recorded, Toni was accused of Cheat!ng on 9ice with rapper, Ruggedman named in the scandal.
Toni and 9ice recently made up after the singer apologized to her and she acknowledged and accepted in a post she recently penned.
Despite this, Toni was recently bashed on Twitter for allegedly Cheat!ng on 9ice with Ruggedman when she commented on the Cheat!ng scandal involving Choc City rapper, Ice Prince and his girlfriend, Maima.
9ice and Toni have a son together, Zion from their short marriage.
