A sheriff of the Lagos State High Court, Inusile Babatunde, has alleged that Nollywood star, Mrs Elizabeth Anjorin Lawal, popularly known as Lizzy Anjorin, is evading service of court processes in the N30 million defamation suit filed against her.
Babatunde made the allegation in his six-paragraph affidavit sworn to on August 10, 2021, filed in support of an ex parte motion seeking to serve the court process on the defendant by substituted means.
Lizzy Anjorin was dragged before the court by a Canada-based Yoruba art and culture promoter, Mr Joel Olaniyi Oyatoye, popularly known as Baba Asa.
Babatunde alleged that attempts to serve the actress court processes have been unsuccessful because she made herself inaccessible.
He stated that the last attempt to serve the defendant was made on July 27, 2021 at her business address, Lizzy Anjorin Clothings, Road 5, Shop ‘I’ 323, Ikota Shopping Complex, VGC, Lekki, Lagos State.
He met with the defendant’s salesgirl who confirmed that her boss was around, but after calling her on phone, she allegedly avoided the service of the court processes.
Besides, the deponent averred that many people had called him, claiming to be lawyers to the defendant and requested that the court processes should be handed over to them. But he requested a power of attorney from Lizzy Anjorin, which they failed to produce.
In the claimant’s application pending before Justice Josephine Oyefeso, seeking to serve Lizzy Anjorin by substituted means, Baba Asa prayed the court for an order granting him leave to serve the court process on the defendant by pasting it in a conspicuous place at the mentioned address.
In the substantive suit, Oyatoye has asked the court to compel Lizzy Anjorin to pay him N30 million for alleged defamation.
Baba Asa is the plaintiff in the suit numbered LD/ADR/3481/2021, while Lizzy Anjorin is the sole defendant.
Madonna reveals the on-stage moment that almost killed her career
Pop diva Madonna may have one of the most impressive careers in music history, but the “Vogue” singer revealed that a wardrobe malfunction three decades ago nearly ended her career.
The 63-year-old shared the cheeky mishap during an appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Wednesday, decked out with a mouthful of “birthday grills” in true Madonna fashion.
The star joined Fallon to promote her new album “Finally Enough Love”, a curation of the singer’s favorite dance hits.
While the album celebrates Madonna’s record number of top songs, the star revealed her iconic “Like a Virgin” performance during the first-ever MTV Video Music Awards in 1984 nearly got her canceled.
When the then 26-year-old descended onto the MTV stage to perform the hit song, her stiletto slipped from underneath her, resulting in the singer diving to catch it– accidentally flipping her dress and exposing her behind in the process.
“Those were the days when you shouldn’t show your butt to have a career,” the star joked. “Now it’s the opposite.”
Madonna recalled her reps backstage deemed her career “over with” after the accidental flashing,
“It wasn’t even the whole butt! It was like a butt cheek– like half of a butt cheek,” Madonna argued to the audience.
Fallon also reminded audiences that “Like a Virgin” was never supposed to be the record’s single, given that producer Nile Rodgers wanted it to be “Material Girl”.
“Those were the days when I had no say in anything,” the Grammy-winner reflected. “Can you imagine those days even existing?”
Despite her old reps’ fears, Madonna’s career was far from over following the accidental on-stage flashing. Her new album, celebrating her 50 #1 hits on the Billboard singles charts, was released earlier this summer, with a CD and vinyl version coming on Aug. 19.
A$AP Rocky sued for assault, battery by ex ‘mob mate’ A$AP Relli who claims rapper fired ‘shots’ at him
A$AP Rocky was slapped with a civil lawsuit by his former friend and “mob mate” A$AP Relli, who is accusing the rapper of shooting him.
The allegation comes just months after the “Praise the Lord” hitmaker, 33, was arrested and taken into custody for his alleged involvement in a Nov. 6 2021 shooting.
In April, A$AP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, was handcuffed and charged with assault with a deadly weapon after touching down in Los Angeles after his vacation with girlfriend Rihanna.
In the latest development of the case, A$AP Relli, whose real name is Terell Ephron, claims he was the victim of said shooting.
His lawyers told Rolling Stone he will sue the rapper in a civil court for causing “irreparable harm to his career in the entertainment industry” as a result of the altercation.
Relli’s lawyers claim Rocky arrived with a semi-automatic handgun.
After arriving at the location, a conversation ensued whereby without provocation, warning, or any justification, A$AP Rocky produced the handgun and intentionally fired multiple shots at Mr. Ephron,” Relli’s legal team told the outlet.
In April, LAPD said an argument between “two acquaintances” escalated, resulting in the suspect firing a handgun at the victim.
The suspect, who cops later identified as the “Fashion Killa” rapper, allegedly fled the scene on foot with two other men.
The Post reached out to A$AP Rocky’s reps for comment.
Rocky previously found himself in legal hot water in 2019 when he was arrested and jailed in Sweden for a month for his involvement in a street fight with alleged “drug addicts.”
Kim Kardashian ‘very sad’ about Pete Davidson breakup: It’s ‘been hard’
Kim Kardashian has the breakup blues.
The reality star is “very sad” about her split from Pete Davidson last week, a source tells Page Six exclusively.
Our insider says it’s “been hard” for Kardashian, 41, who dated Davidson, 28, for nine months.
We’re told “distance and schedules” contributed to the pair’s decision to call it quits, but they still “love and respect” each other.
The “Kardashians” star will always care for the “Saturday Night Live” alum and “have his back,” our source shares.
Another insider previously told us that although both parties are “bummed” their romance didn’t go the distance, they’re not terribly shocked.
“Pete knew it wasn’t going to work,” the second source said. “He’d been saying it for a while — and Kim knew it, too.”
A third insider told us that the duo’s age difference played a role in why they parted ways.
With 13 years between them, the third source explained that they are “just in very different places at the moment.”
Davidson has been spending much of his summer working on a movie in Australia, while Kardashian is juggling her businesses and co-parenting her four young children with ex-husband Kanye West in Los Angeles.
Now, the beauty mogul has the added stress of dealing with West’s latest social media antics.
On Monday morning, three days after the news of Kete’s split broke, the “Gold Digger” rapper, 45, posted an image on Instagram of a doctored New York Times front-page article with the headline, “SKETE DAVIDSON DEAD AT AGE 28.”
It wasn’t the first time West — who dubbed Davidson “Skete” during their one-sided feud earlier this year — invoked the comedian’s death, leaving Kardashian “livid.”
“Kanye is back to his old ways, and Kim will not tolerate his bullying behavior toward the people she loves and cares about,” an insider told us, adding that the petty move only reinforces “why there will never be a chance of reconciliation” between the former couple, who became legally single in March.
Another source shared with us that Kardashian asked West to delete the post several times before he finally did Monday afternoon.
