Against the backdrop of the rumour making the rounds that self-acclaimed Egberi Papa 1 of Bayelsa, Timaya and Empress Njamah have resolved their differences, three years after their bitter break-up, the latter has come out to debunk the story.
Reports had it that the ex-lovers were spotted together at 2Face Idibia’s 37th birthday bash which held last Tuesday, at Club Rumours, G.R.A, Ikeja, Lagos. But reacting to the story when contacted by WG, Empress said she has nothing in common with Timaya again.
“ I and Timaya are not dating again. He saw me at the party and came to exchange pleasantries with me. There is nothing wrong with that. If we are not dating again does not mean that we are worn enemies. “Empress said
According to the rumour mongers, the erstwhile lovers arrived the venue at different time.
Empress was said to have sat at the same table with some of her Nollywood colleagues when Timaya reportedly got closer to her and whispered something into her ear as they both laughed.
“He was just trying to be nice and Empress replied him, saying “That’s that.” a source disclosed.
Timaya and Empress Njamah began dating over four years back. But in August, 2009, at a church in Festac, Lagos, Timaya was reported to have been beaten by some naval men when he stormed the church with the aim to attack Empress.
He was said to have caused fracas in the church, shouting that Empress should return the key to the car he bought for her. The controversial singer also reportedly called Empress a thief, a situation that led to their permanent separation. Timaya has since moved on with his life. In May 2012, he welcomed his first child, a baby girl from his girlfriend.
