The United Kingdom-based businesswoman and socialite, Olinda Chapel has officially filed for divorce from her ex-husband, singer, Njabulo ‘Tytan’ Nkomo.

The two who have a daughter together announced their split last year which turned nasty after Tytan claimed he had been abused by Olinda while she accused him of milking her of her money and marrying her for a UK citizenship.

According to reports, Olinda approached the High Court seeking to formally end their 19-month marriage arguing that her husband never loved her but married her to facilitate his stay in the United Kingdom, where she has permanent residency.

“The plaintiff (Olinda) seeks an annulment of the marriage between the parties which is a nullity, more particularly in that at the time that the parties entered into the marriage and exchanged vows, no valid marital union was created as plaintiff was not aware that defendant (Njabulo) was entering into the marriage exclusively for the purpose of his acquisition of immigration papers entitling defendant to remain in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and by virtue of plaintiff’s permanent immigration status,” her lawyers wrote.

She said Titan misled her.

“At the time that the marriage was entered into, the defendant intended it to be a marriage of convenience and a conduit for the sole purpose of the acquisition of immigration paper…,” the lawyers added.

The couple were married in Harare on June 29, 2018, and have a daughter, Nandi Amari Tadiwa.

Bustop TV got hold of Tytan to hear his side to which he simply responded, “no comment.”

Olinda in the divorce filing said it will be in the interest of justice if she is awarded the custody of their minor child and wants the court to allow her husband to get reasonable access.

She also wants Nkomo to pay child maintenance until she reaches 18.
