On the eve of Valentine’s Day, Stephen Gaeseb has opened up about his break-up with Big Brother Africa: The Chase winner Dillish Mathews – and revealed that the couple had already split in December last year after arguing about his flirtatious SMSes he sent to a Nigerian woman. Gaeseb also dismissed rumours that he had impregnated another woman and that this was the reason why they broke up.
He said that if anyone could produce evidence that he had made another woman pregnant, he would pay that person N$100 000. If a woman came forward and proved she was pregnant with his child, she would get N$150 000. He also came to his former girlfriend’s defence and said people who claimed that she was a gold digger, who then became rich and dumped him, were wrong about her. “It wasn’t about money. It’s just that we both agreed that we are better apart. Dillish isn’t just physically beautiful, she is also amazing and I respect her,” he said.
Dillish is the first BBA winner to have visited a host of African countries and is currently on a whirlwind tour to promote her lipstick line, which will also be unveiled today in the capital. Nigerian flame Asked why they broke up, Gaeseb first paused and then explained that they had argued in December last year, after he flirted with another woman, and he and Dillish had both “said things they regret”. “While Dillish was on the show, there was a Nigerian woman who was helping to campaign for people in her country to vote for her.
I was in contact with her because I helped with the campaigning.” Gaeseb paused again, before continuing: “We flirted via text messages and so on. I mean all guys flirt, it doesn’t mean you intend on acting on it. She then sent a snapshot of our conversations to a friend of Dillish, who eventually sent it to Dillish.” “We had an argument about that, which led to an argument about other things and we both said some things that we wish we didn’t. After that we decided to break-up and haven’t been together since December.” Appeal for privacy There has been a frenzy on social networks after Namibian Sun broke the story that Dillish had removed photographs of Gaeseb and her together from her Instagram account. “We both need our privacy and we love each and probably always will so we need our privacy” Gaeseb said yesterday. He added that him and Dillish still remain in contact and are friends. He said contrary to rumours, he had not impregnated another woman. “I was shocked when I heard that I impregnated another girl and that I have many other kids. I have a ten-year-old boy.
This alleged pregnancy is just untrue,” Gaeseb. Dillish and Flavour Asked about rumours that Dillish is dating Nigerian singer Flavour N’abania, Gaeseb said he doubts that she is. “I doubt Dillish is seeing Flavour, but if she is, then it won’t be to spite me. Dillish isn’t a spiteful woman. It’s not her kind of thing.” Gaeseb also responded to rumours some journalists are in possession of naked photographs of Dillish, which was allegedly on a laptop stolen from him.
He said his laptop was never stolen. “I’ve heard about the rumours that my laptop was stolen and that’s how someone got naked photos of Dillish, but those rumours are not true and I haven’t had any laptop stolen. It’s sad that others want to capitalise on this beak-up,” he said. Gaeseb added that right now he just wishes the rumours will end. “The pregnancies and the cheating rumours are all ridiculous. I wish people will give us our privacy and let it go now.”
