Doris Simeon’s Rep: “She Hasn’t Seen or Spoken to Her Son in 13 Months”



Doris Simeon, Daniel Ademinokan & David - October 2013  - BellaNaija

This doesn’t sound good.

A rep for Nollywood star Doris Simeon is claiming that the actress is yet to see her 7 year old son David, who she had for her ex-producer/director husband Daniel Ademinokan.

According to Punch, reports recently surfaced online that Doris and her son David are now together, but her publicist (Gbenga Bada) is denying the story.

Read his statement;

We are denying the story in its entirety. The public was recently fed with an untrue story that the actress has reunited with David. It was even alleged that the boy and the star actress attended church service together last Sunday. This is not true because the actress has been out of Nigeria since the week before.

We don’t know who is feeding the public with this tale but it should be noted that Doris is yet to get his son back after he was taken away by his father some time back.

David, the product of the seven-year-old marriage, has not spoken or seen his mother since he was whisked away by his father. We say again that there is no iota of truth in that tale that Daniel has returned David, who would have missed his mother greatly in the last 13 months

    I am hoping that Doris will eventually speak out on this matter asap if she really needs this child in her life.
    Even though Nigeria is a patriarchal society where there seems to be no divorce laws in favor of the rights of women Doris need’s to make her stand in this matter known to the public without divulging unnecessary information which will be detrimental to the privacy of all parties involved.
    At the end of it all even if her son is not returned to her, he [when he comes of age] and member’s of the public [not that our opinion matter’s] will not be able to accuse her of being too reticent over this matter.
    May God preserve the child and give him a favourable outcome irrespective of how unsavoury the relationship between his parent’s may be.

      maybe she’s guilty that’s why she’s not speaking. i don’t know any mother who is innocent and not shout out to get her child back. just a thought. we don’t know what happened in their marriage, but we have all been blaming stella, but doris’s silence screams guilty to me. just saying

      How guilty can a mother be that you deny her access to her own child, think before you accuse people, even if she’s guilty of anything it’s btw her and the man and has nothing to do with the child, never make a child suffer bcos of a parent sins, every child has a right of love and affection from both parents

      Guilty of what pray tell? What can she be guilty of that denying her access to her own child is suitable punishment? Next time, engage your brain before typing!

    She is out of Nigeria? Then why is her a$$ not in the US where her son is? She is not serious! If she wants her child, all she has to do is go get her child and stop playing the victim. Trust me, Stella and Daniel do not want authorities on their case and they will give that child up in a heart beat. IRS, Welfare fraud, false claims to get Government assistants, both of them don’t want the attention. It seems to me that Doris is enjoying the single life and crying wolf at the same time. I don’t even have a child (yet), but I’ll damned…

    • Lolu

      October 27, 2013 at 6:27 am

      Really? the best advise u could give is that she should come here and get the child without proper laws being followed? What does welfare fraud have do with anything? Have they told you they are claiming or receiving child benefits?

      I’m not certain on laws of non-citizens fighting for custody here, but she certainly can’t take the child illegally that’s for sure, if he calls immigration on her that’s a big issue. She sud get a lawyer and find out the best way. She may have to institute the action in Nigeria and have it enforced in the US

    • Leah

      October 27, 2013 at 6:57 pm

      Did you not read my comment? Daniel does NOT want the
      authorities any where near him. Besides the system here awards
      custody to a parent according to what is best for the child. It
      usually goes to the mother unless you can establish that the mother
      is not fit to take care of the child. Well Stella has said that
      Doris’ problem was in the bedroom, and that has nothing to do with
      the child. There is also the question of why a mother who is
      capable of travelling to the US and has in the past, has not even
      visited her son in 13 months even though she has travelled out of
      Nigeria in that period. Daniel being the father has the right to
      take his son to live with him, Doris just has to claim that she is
      the mother, has raised him so far and that the boy is best with
      her. But 13 months has still gone by and she has done nothing, and
      meanwhile the boy is adjusting to his new environment without her.
      Daniel went and took him because he wanted to be with his child. If
      Doris wants to be with her child, she needs to go get him and not
      wait for Daniel to bring the child to her, he is the father. It is
      funny you should mention immigration and papers while Daniel is
      living with Stella and her children and their legal status is just
      the same as Doris’. However if Doris is smart, she would have so
      much on Daniel (the man she married) that the man will have
      absolutely no choice but to hand over the child. I repeat, Daniel
      does NOT want authorities in his personal business. Trust me, a
      mother who is desperate to have her child will do it by any means
      necessary especially when it is this easy. Doris wants to play
      victim and mother from a distance while she travels around the
      world without the physical responsibility. It is 2013 and the
      excuses don’t pass the smell test. As for jkmama aka Stella, you
      are absolutely shameless.

    All those saying she is not trying hard enough walk a mile in her shoes first before you make such baseless comments. That she does not talk about her trying to get him back or struggles she is facing with the issue at hand publicly does not mean she is not trying.

    This story is one kind…it really isn’t going down well with me at all….Dang! I remember when she had that baby…I saw an interview of them on tv, the presenter had gone into their home for it, they looked genuinely happy and the baby was probably just a month or so….Mehn sometimes life doesn’t work out as planned I guess. But homeboy needs to be responsible and let Doris have access to her son….as there is no smoke without fire. And as for those asking why she is just speaking out…urrrrrr maybe she didn’t want to air her dirty laundry in public?

    p.s. And some folks keep acting clueless when people hate on Stellar Damascus videos….this entire situation is just shady mehn….I wouldn’t even want to touch it with a ten foot pole and she right in the middle of it getting fatter and crying on youtube. She needs to get her house (or is it Doris’ house now) in order!!

    October 26, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    Doris should not let anyone take her child away , she must fight for him any way she can. No matter what happened in the marriage the child needs his mother. No other woman will love him like her.

    October 26, 2013 at 9:19 pm

    Please pardon me if i would be sounding too serious for some people but the problem with a lot of we nigerians is that we take almost everything for granted just like this bella naija blog…many people come on here to make foolish comments rather than see this blog as a platform to promote their personality,beliefs and what they stand for in life.Also some comments are so painfully dumb that i almost agree with some guys that most females are dumb! So many people do not even read the whole of most stories before commenting……………only a dumb person will do that anyway
    Now to ds Doris issue…
    I am lucky to have met her ex husband -the father of the baby so i can authoritatively tell u a bit of his personality.
    He is a real Man.Loving caring romantic hardworking passionate about his ambition in life and also a no nonsense man.He loved Doris for real but Doris was not submissive not only sexually because even when that was the only bone of contention in their marriage(which was also for a while -not d way it was hyped)this gentle man still went round standing tall for her in public until his ego was so bruished that he could not stand it again.
    Now i blame Doris here because she would have saved her marriage if she valued it.All she needed was to be wife to Daniel and not Doris …all she needed was to make some sacrifices for the love that brought them together and re-ignited the fire but rather she brought herself low to listen to frustrated ladies whom have lost faith in ever being in love again and thus have grown to envy what Doris has without her knowing it thus have become so desperate to ruin the affair and that is exactly what happened.
    Daniel is a very responsible guy and disciplined.He is not d kind of guy that will kill his woman’s dream or frustrate it neither was he ever the jealous husband type of a man reason why i said he is a real Man.He wanted to keep Doris as his girl,wife,woman & mother of his children but Doris was the one who failed to grow up and learn what it takes to be a wife.
    I really must say this here that with the way the world is,and the society is right now some ladies should not even bother to make attempts at getting married because it would definately pack up.Its not a curse but reality because some ladies just wanna be ladies forever and this i say can never be possible for any married lady because as a married woman you must assume the role of a wife (who must be submissive at some point-becus its your home and u need that quality to maneuver your way into getting right into your hubby’s head always and calling the shot indirectly…especially for we africans) But some ladies cant be like this,they would rather be seen barking around screaming out their importance as if there is no other woman out there with either same beauty,intelligence,achievement or even more
    Now back to Doris.If she is really serious and wants to seriously and positively be in her son’s life and feel she is worth something and has a personality to project herself after over a decade in the Entertainment Industry that all of them including Stella belong,then she should CRY OUT & DEMAND FOR HER EX-HUSBAND TO RECONSIDER HIS POSITION TO WANT TO SHUT HER OUT.
    Stella damasus HAS NO BLAME here honestly and Daniel is with her because she is matured and he does not want to be sleeping around.PLS BELLA POST MY COMMENT EXCEPT U DO NOT LIKE INTELLECTUALS ON YOUR BLOG.

      October 26, 2013 at 11:10 pm

      Welcome Stella, so Daniel the supposedly real man told you
      that doris wasn’t submissive in bed. A man that denies his own
      child its mother’s love is not a real man and no excuse you make
      will change that fact!!!. I believe that in as much as the parents
      may hate each other, mature human beings will come together at
      least for the sake of the child.; taking that child away from the
      mother is heartless

      Lol… Stella Damasus nice try. Is there more to your
      entire existence besides being “submissive in bed”? You had written
      the same nonsense on you blog a little while ago on how women
      deserve to be cheated on and dumped. Didn’t you just get out of a
      very short marriage? What happened? Where you not also married
      during the affair with RMD? It seems that you are only good at
      submitting in other women’ bed and not your husbands, why? Women
      like you if anything, are the reason for “setting us backward” The
      rest of us are smart, beautiful, educated, well achieved and
      confident and do not have to show our self worth only in bed. There
      a reason you are always a side piece and it is nothing to gloat
      about. The comments before your little rant was about a mother and
      child, please stay in you lane (right in Conner where [email protected] reside).
      Back to the point, if the Doris woman is serious about having her
      child, she would have been on the plane a long time ago. Thanks BN
      for posting my comment.

    between the guy , Stella & Doris. The sinnner never goes
    unpunished. Secondly,@ jkmama if you are as intelligent as you
    claim to be you will know that the behaviour of a man is often
    times determined by the circumstance he finds himself, remember
    Hitler? To his followers & those that believed in his cause

    wow , @jkman , you affirm being an intellect then you should acknowledge the importance of ” parenting” particularly in cases where both parents are separated. Every child needs both parents in their lives especially where the parents are alive, capable and willing to do so.
    An educated and refined adult should be more concerned on the impacts and benefits of this child having both parents in his life. Suggestions like sharing child custody through the courts or amicable agreements from both parties involved should take priority. And not about sexual incapability or other reasons for the collapse of the marriage, which both ex husband and ex wife will have their own versions . The issue and concern here is the “child ” involved and *stella damasus *should stay out of this because she has her own kids whom you really seem to advocate for and defend within your comments…… for the record I am a mother of one and currently rounding off my postgraduate here in the UK and I really do hope that makes me worthy enough or intellectually certified to comment……… deep sigh ……… ignorant people

    o my this is a tough one. custody battles are messy business and celebrity custody battles are even worse. think Usher and his ex. I feel for her. for the 13 months, I can only imagine she has tried other non-judicial routes to see the child and may just be afraid to take the leap into what may have to be a messy court battle.
    if the child is in the U.S. as some people are suggesting, the U.S. system very strongly favors the mother (regardless of what the courts like to say about being impartial). Also it’s really not expensive to file for visitation at least and then slowly for custody. In one sentence sha, u need a good lawyer. please don’t do youtube for custody battle o and try not to plead to the public. you’re just making your matter public movie and that won’t necessarily help your legal case anyway as you’ll promptly be painted as a nutjob

    • Dlapikin

      October 27, 2013 at 4:57 pm

      Exactly my sentiment. She has not commented on anything
      since the beginning of this saga but she is surfacing out o nowhere
      to deny that she has seen her child? For me that is taking the
      issue public and if you want to make it public, instead of putting
      out press release explain to us how all this came about because I
      just don’t see any judge in the USA keeping a capable mother away
      from her child especially a toddler.

  19. Dlapikin

    October 27, 2013 at 4:54 pm

    Goodness! Why is this Stella Damasus problem? The USA are
    probably better regulated than Nigeria when it comes to divorce and
    children custody. Unless the ex husband can allege abuse on Doris
    part, I don’t see why she can’t come to the US and have her son
    back. To the least before the case is even heard by a judge she
    will get shared custody. How did it come about in the first place
    that a child that young be left to the sole care of the father?
    What are people here really expecting Stella Damasus to do? Get in
    the middle of her man and end ex to force him to give a child back?
    I’m sure there is a lot here that we don’t know. It just does not
    make any sense to me that a child would be in the united states of
    America and a woman that is not wanted here for any crime would not
    have access to him for 13 months. No visitations, no nothing. Yet
    she’s been traveling the world…

  20. Tess

    October 27, 2013 at 6:35 pm

    The publicity statement does not give a true picture of
    what is happening in the lives of the parties concerned. Who knows,
    Doris may have given her permission for the boy to be with his dad
    due to the better standard of education in the States, or for some
    other reason. Perhaps she talks with him on the phone regularly
    too. In essence, let’s not be too hasty in making assumptions. To
    the person commenting as JKMama, I refuse to believe you are Stella
    Damasus. However if you are indeed Stella, I have a suggestion for
    you dear: please stop commenting publicly on this issue. It’s bad
    enough that you are seen as the ‘other lady’ who stole a woman’s
    husband, but to give reasons for him leaving his wife for you is
    really pathetic. You could make yourself useful by appealing to
    your new husband to allow his ex-wife visitation rights to her son,
    if indeed he has denied her those rights. You are a mother and know
    how deep a mother’s love is, please don’t remain submissive to
    Daniel while he denies a mother her rights.

      if that’s the case, then the father should take the boy to Nigeria where she can see him. the ticket is not that expensive that we need to keep a child from his mother. unless of course the guy is in the U.S. without correct papers and knows he can’t come back if he leaves.

    If Stella isn’t involved, why is she treating the boy like her son and parading him everywhere? i’ve seen them Daniel/stella / stella’s daughters/ and the boy together at the palms. Am not saying be mean to someone else’s child but pls do not condone this injustice. Stop trying to convert someone else’s child into yours, give the boy back to the mother simple.
