Nollywood actor, has finally broken his silence, after his ex-girlfriend, Lydia Balogun blasted him on Twitter.

Recall that she went on a tirade of words on Monday, claiming that he (Timini) targets mostly young, naive teenage girls.

According to her, the actor is a predator, a cradle snatcher and a pervert.

She had said, “Meeting this man, I had no idea of his sexual past or who he had been involved with, didn’t know anyone from his social circle and now I know that is also intentional.

“When he told me he’d make an exception for me despite how young I was (I was like 19) I actually believed that and thought “wow he must really like me.”

However, Timini argued, in a statement posted on his Twitter page, that he had only dated consenting women who were older than the legal consenting age.

He said “Firstly, I would like to make clear beyond any doubt that I do not condone courting or having a relationship with anyone under the age of consent.

“Rumours are rumours but baseless accusation of sexual abuse or grooming of underage woman is something I don’t take lightly given the severity of the issue.

“Lydia and I dated two years ago, we were both consenting adults and our families knew and approved of each other. Our relationship didn’t work out due to circumstances we were both at fault for which resulted in us parting ways.

“Our relationship was a volatile one and mistakes were made on both ends. Nevertheless, I learned from it and have moved on. I honestly would like to put that chapter of my life behind me and I wish her well.”
