1) She had very limited options with men cause of her age, fame and fortune;
Most men she met acted more like fans, but he was neutral and claimed her had never heard of her which was a turn on.
2) She was desperate to settle down, and he fit right into her criteria
” I was 35 and he was 37 and I’d been single for nearly 4 years. I was definitely searching and I fell in love almost immediately and so we became an item”.
It’s her desperation that made him turn her into a booty call. He broke things off with her, claiming her very public life scared him off. After the initial breakup their relationship became on and off, more like a fling with no clear direction- according to Linda, she remained in the relationship because she found no one else
There were times it was very intense and we talked about a future together, and there were times that I couldn’t figure out what exactly I was doing with this guy. We were not suited for each other. Totally different lifestyles
3) Linda’s family did plead with Sholaye to marry her
After her child birth in September, a rumor mill started that the father of her child does not want to marry her, according to the rumor Linda’s father begged the baby daddy to marry her but he refused.
Says who? Linda's father has been begging him to come and do the right thing and he refused. They baby papa is flexing in Ikoyi right now.

Her write-up confirms that the rumor is true- see quote from her blog – Around when I was about three months pregnant, he did come to see my parents and actually became very cool with my dad. They were literally exchanging Whats-app messages every day. He later agreed to a traditional wedding which he didn’t follow through and then he switched. He began to treat me with so much hate and aggression that I and my family had to cut him off completely.
Here are the funniest reactions to the entire scandal

Linda Ikeji should have tweeted “I’m not a slut like other single baby mamas sleeping around for money. Ps. I’m rich bitch” and saved everybody some time.
