2 Face Idibia has slammed a N100 million suit against soft-sell magazine, Icon Weekly, for libel. The Media/Entertainment Law Firm of L & A- Legal Consultants has filed libel proceedings on behalf of 2 Face, at the Ikeja High Court asking the court to award their client the sum of N100 million being damages for the libelous publication posted on the magazine’s online and print platforms.
In March this year, Icon alleged that 2 Face committed adultery by impregnating a ‘Lagos top banker’ who is supposedly his account officer in one of the new generation banks and that, the lady had every intention of keeping the baby. The story went viral, which 2 Face later denied.
A source close to the music icon said the story, which was found to be false, made 2 Face lose a very lucrative deal and caused ripples between him and his wife. Icon weekly is said to have approached 2 Face’s team for discussions on a possible out of court settlement.
