Lanre has released a statement to address the issue. The statement reads,
“It has come to our notice that a certain Linda Dominguez who is an ex-employee of Davinci Fashion Lounge has been reaching out to bloggers trying to taint the person of Mr. Lanre Nzeribe our CEO through allegations of domestic violence.
We wish to state clearly that no such thing transpired. Linda Dominguez has worked for the club for only one month and had misappropriated funds from the running of the Business.
She had been informed that she had to account for the missing funds or get fired especially as a report of theft had been lodged against her at the Police Station.
On the night of the alleged slap, she had been fired for being rude to Mr. Nzeribe before other members of staff, and was directed to handover company documents in her possession. So she held on tightly to the documents while Mr. Nzeribe tried to retrieve them from her and she started screaming ‘you slapped me, you slapped me, it’s going on the blogs that you slapped me’ to the consternation of all who were present .
She had it all planned out. Linda Dominguez is a social climber who wants to become a celebrity by all means and has chosen Mr. Nzeribe as a target to achieve this.
Linda Dominguez is trying to put up drama in the wake of the ongoing intolerance of domestic violence against women, also because she had been fired and was asked to account for missing funds. Her brother is also a culprit in the siphoning of company funds.”
