Remember this photo of Nollywood actress Alex Lopez and Slim Burna? They were at a grocery store in Port Harcourt but no sooner had it surfaced on the web did rumour of an affair follow. Slim Burna was labelled Lopez’s boyfriend; a rumor he and Alex now deny.

Slim Burna through his publicist reached out exclusively to this writer to refute these allegations. He said “We’ve been friends since we first met in D/Line, Port Harcourt. I remember I was with my aunt when she saw Alex and I tried to recognize her, and my aunt actually was like, “Hey Gabriel this is Alex Lopez”, and I remembered I’ve always admired how she acted in movies. The photo was taken in a grocery store around my neighborhood, she came to get some stuffs that day and we met at the same place and while we greeted each other, a friend took a picture of us, not for any particular reason, just paying homage and showing some love. For the misconception, I don’t understand why people should draw such conclusions.”

Here’s what Alex had to say about it :

“I really don’t get why people spread such false rumors. This was obviously made up by someone who don’t have anything better to do. Please I’m not dating or hooking up with any singer. The young man is only a friend and nothing more than that. We just met and he greeted me then we took a pic together that is all.”
