Funke Akindele’s acting career dates back to the time that she was just a young girl. But she did not hit the limelight until she wrote, produced and featured in her award winning film, Jenifa. Ever since, her profile has risen and unfortunately, exposed her to one scandal after the other.
For example, her alleged romance with fellow actor, Femi Adebayo, made headlines sometime ago, though both denied the allegation. Now it is rumoured that Funke and Femi recently had a fight in one hotel in Abeokuta. Femi is said to have accused Funke of infidelity and in anger, he had stormed out of the hotel.
As at the time of going to press, Life and Beat could not reach Funke, as all her phones were switched off. But a source close to the actress said she was not dating Femi.
“There was a time when both of them were very close. But due to some things that happened, which I cannot tell you, Funke has been on her own and she is not dating Femi.We know where the story is coming from and why they are peddling such a wicked rumour. Funke was not in any hotel in Abeokuta. She told me so and I believe her. Those carrying this rumour should desist from it and allow this young girl to carry on with her career,” the source said.
