“We are great friends and fight for some humanitarian causes together.”
Outlining the status of their ‘friendship’ further, the mother-of-one also said: “The media love to refer to John and I as husband and wife but we are not married. We keep quiet and let that perception slide but the truth is, we are great friends and fight for some causes together. He is amazing in business and a very loyal friend. Professional to the core. Misunderstood by many but an amazing man.
I have been a very close friend with him for over two years now and I can attest to his goodness and loyalty. He goes the extra mile for his friends.
He has gotten his feet caught unfairly many times because of his goodness. I am blessed to have a great friend like John who has grown to become like a brother, confidante, friend and amazing in business. We also fight many causes together”, she said.
