REGGIE ZIPPY FINALLY REACTS TO CHEATING ALLEGATIONS

Edith and Reggie 2One-half of sensational X-Factor duo Reggie N Bollie, Reginald Kojo Ainooson aka Reggie Zippy has finally opened up about cheating allegations leveled again him few weeks after the X-Factor 2016 finals.

In an exclusive interview on Peace FM’s “Entertainment Review”, Reggie admitted that he had some link with the said lady but it was a silly mistake which shouldn’t have even happened. He added that most of the reports and audio conversations that was released were all fabricated.

According to him:

“It was a silly mistake on my part and I will say that it was something that the fame that we got, those are some of the things that came with it. Most of the stories that were put out there wasn’t really true, some of the audio tapes that were released were all lies. They were well-edited audios but at the end of the day, we learnt from it and I thank God that I didn’t get into any intimate relationship with her and I didn’t do anything physical with that particular woman. I have learnt my lessons from it and we’ve moved on. Luckily enough, we’ve got very supportive wives who are always behind us so we are fine and we are really happy.”

Asked if the cheating scandal affected his group and family, Reggie said it didn’t affect him in anyway. “We are fine and we are doing great everything is going on perfectly”.

According to Reggie, they flew home last week to spent time with their families and they are back on the road for the X-Factor Tour. He said his wife celebrated her birthday few days ago and they had a good time together.

Few weeks after their overwhelming performance at the X-Factor 2016 finals, it emerged that Reggie – of X-Factor’s ‘Reggie & Bollie’ fame was not much of a faithful and happily married man as he presented himself to British TV viewers.

Reggie was portrayed as a cheating husband, who lived a double life, by UK’s Daily Star—when it was revealed that Reggie spent most of November and December bombarding smitten Marie Asemota with lurid messages behind his unsuspecting wife.

Marie, 36, told the newspaper that: “Being a good husband and dad is Reggie N Bollie’s brand but in Reggie’s case it’s a fake. He is living a double life. I thought he liked me but he just used me and then dropped me.”

Marie added that “she and Reggie exchanged more than 500 texts as he shot to fame on The X Factor.”

A phone call Reggie placed to Maria has was published—in which Reggie, the dad-of-three allegedly begs the British babe to meet him at hotels around the UK for sex.

This according to Reggie was a well-calculated attempt to bring his name in disrepute. He said his encounter with the said lady was an on and off communication between them and it didn’t last beyond two weeks and he never met the lady in person.

Watch: CELINE DION PAYS EMOTIONAL TRIBUTE TO LATE HUSBAND

Celine Dion and husbandCeline Dion returned to singing at her Las Vegas residency Tuesday night, and the singer had an emotional breakdown on stage during her tribute to her late husband.

Celine Dion decided to incorporate a ten minute tribute to her husband into her show going forward, and it was a very emotional experience for the grieving talent, on her return to Cesar’s Palace.

“Through my life, I only had highs from my husband, who sat out here night after night,” she told the crowd. “People thought that I was looking at him, but I didn’t need to. Because every time I closed my eyes, I felt René on stage with me, whether he was seated in his seat right there, in the balcony, backstage, or at home with the kids.”

“He’s always been onstage with me, and nothing will ever change that.”

The tribute included a montage of photos and videos of her late 73 year old husband, including ones with her and her family. Dion went on to describe how her late husband, who was also her manager and mentor, always pushed her to be the best she could be.

“Rene was my very best critic. He never told me what I wanted to hear, he told me what I needed to hear.

“You know, night after night on our way back home from the show, when he was so silent, I could sense that he was trying to know how to approach me without hurting my artistic feeling. But there were things that he had to tell me for my own growth,”

She went on to describe how her husband treated her like royalty, despite many years of being together.

“Rene is the only man that I have known all my life. He always made me feel that we were on our first date,” she said.

“Never talking bluntly, and always impressing himself in a soft and gentle way.” She added.

The singer, who broke down during her performance of ‘All By Myself’, went on to a strong finish, to rapturous applause from the crowd.

Celine Dion would hold the tribute before all her shows at least until mid-March, when she goes on hiatus.

The singer lost her husband, Rene Angélil, on the morning of Thursday January 14; when he passed away from throat cancer, a condition he battled for over a decade. The 73 year old for several years served not only as the talented singer’s husband, but her mentor and manager as well; before the extremities of his condition curtailed his role.
