The Ghanaian wife, said she got married to Fani-Kayode based on Ghanaian customs in 1997 and they subsequently tied the knot at the Apapa Registry in Lagos in 2002.
Regina said, "We have a beautiful daughter called Oluwaremilekun and both she and I are very proud of him. He has been a wonderful father and caring husband and he has never subjected me to any form of domestic abuse or treated me badly.
"Reports in the media that we are divorced are fake and suggestions that I was treated in a bad way by him or subjected to any form of abuse at any time in the 23 years that we have been married are malicious and false"
Regina said she approved Fani-Kayode's relationship with Precious that produced four sons.
She stated that she had relocated to Ghana and that a monogamous relationship would have been difficult for her husband and that's why she gave him her blessing to take another wife.
However, she said her husband did not commit bigamy as he did not marry Precious legally but traditionally.
