Popular Ghanaian actor, comedian and child president Funny Face has reportedly been charged for scamming a US-based Ghanaian of $53,000.
It is alleged that Funny Face and the woman was having an affair for some months after he made a promise to her to marry her.
The lady claims Funny Face borrowed some monies from him to the tune of $53,000.
In a report by Ghanacelebrities.com, following their split after news of Funny Face marriage flouted the internet space, the lady had no option but to take it to an Accra High Court after attempts by her to recover her money from Funny Face proved futile.
In the suit: “Plaintiff avers that as their love affair grew stronger, the Defendant proposed to marry her; a proposal she gladly accepted. Plaintiff avers that due to the Defendant’s proposal and promise to marry her, she took more than usual interest in affairs of the Defendant. That the Defendant was always requesting for financial assistance from her and she went beyond what is expected of an unmarried acquaintance to meet the unusual financial needs of the Defendant.”
The lady is seeking damages of $53,000 or its Ghana cedi equivalent and for Funny Face to be declared as having defrauded her by false pretenses.
