For years, not much was known about the love life of Ramon Abbas, the Nigerian Instagram celebrity accused of fraud.
Popularly called Hushpuppi, Mr Abbas was arrested for wire fraud in Dubai in June and extradited to the U.S. on July 3.
Before his arrest, the 37-year-old was resident in Dubai and known for flaunting extravagant lifestyles on his Instagram page but never for once, did he reveal the women in his life.
Although he has been romantically linked with some Nigerian celebrities and Instagram socialites in the past, he never publicly identified with them; at least not on his verified Instagram handle which boasts 2.5 million followers.
His Instagram page was a mini catalog dedicated to showing off his cars, clothes, shoes, and jet-set lifestyle. It screamed luxury and nothing more.
As part of his ongoing celebrated trial, Hushpuppi has revealed that he has three children from three different women. He said two of the children live in London and the third lives in New York City.
He told Pretrial Services that he has had an on-again/off-again relationship with the last child’s mother for the last five years.
Pretrial Services Programs are procedures in the U.S. to prepare cases for trial in court.
Pretrial services said the woman’s uncle lives in the Chicago area where he works as a Uber driver. He offered to be a third-party custodian for Abbas and would allow Abbas to live with him.
They added that there is no indication that Abbas knows or ever has met the man as Abbas has never been to Chicago. Pretrial Services did not recommend this residential placement and the court agreed.
The United States Court sitting in Illinois listed the information above as one of the five major reasons for Hushpuppi’s continued detention.
St. Kitts and Nevis
The Government of St. Kitts and Nevis issued a statement concerning Hushpuppi’s citizenship status on its official website on July 6.
The Government of St. Kitts and Nevis said it became aware of reports and rumours concerning Hushpuppi’s Federation’s citizenship.
