Aliko Dangote drags American ex-girlfriend to court

The sex scandal involving Africa’s richest man Aliko Dangote is getting messier. Now, lawyers of the billionaire have filed a lawsuit to claim damages for his smeared reputation after an ex-mistress posted what appeared to be his butt online. 

Earlier this year, an Atlanta restauranteur identified as Bea Lewis posted a loved-up picture of herself with the billionaire with the caption that suggests he ‘broke her heart into a million pieces’.

Then in an attempt to stoke jealousy, another American model with the Instagram handle @Allarounda1 shared a series of videos, perhaps to say she is the real girlfriend.

The woman behind the Instagram handle @Allarounda1 is identified as Autumn Spikes, and according to documents she posted online, Aliko Dangote is seeking compensation for $30,000 in the civil lawsuit, which he appeared to have filed under a pseudonym, John Doe.

Court document reveals the charges were filed with an alias that says ‘AD’, which presumably are initials for Aliko Dangote, against a woman identified as Autumn Spikes.

@Allarounda1 also shared the subpoena and further disclosed how Dangote’s legal team paid her to sign an NDA about her intimate relationship with the billionaire of which she refused.

She, however, threatened to air the dirty linens on social media in retaliation for his decision to seek legal action.

She wrote;

”I have not been served.

But since this is public record, let’s discuss it.

What are your thoughts?

I was insultingly offered 15k and 2,500 a month to sign an NDA but I declined. I gained legal counsel in which we countered his offer. Mind you his first initial offer wasn’t disclosed in the terms of his proposed NDA.

Therefore I was pressured and influenced to sign. Which was already a violation of his own NDA He denied knowing me and our relationship to his lawyers and we’re asked for proof of our affair…now I’m being sued for extortion.

This is such a manly egotistical move. I’ve kept it private but you made it public with the lawsuit. 

All these claims of interviews and talk show threats will have to be proved in court so…  I haven’t spoken to anyone regarding our relationship”
