Tinder User pleads guilty to Harassment for Threatening Love Interest with Suicide after Breakup

Cherelle Eweka

British-Nigerian Tinder user, Cherelle Eweka has reportedly been on a mission to badger a Paul Airey into loving her over the popular dating app.

According to Daily Echo, their relationship lasted for 2 and a half weeks and since after the split, 26-year-old Cherelle has been obsessed with sending nude photos of herself to Paul, sending him (his family, friends and ex-girlfriends) threatening messages on social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat with various fake profile accounts.

The incident has also affected Paul’s businesses and prosecutor Natalie Angel told Southampton Magistrates’ Court that Cherelle sent a message which said: “I will try to kill myself,” describing herself as “hurting” and being in “pain” along with a photo of herself with a belt around her neck.

Cherelle, who works across as a healthcare assistant, met Paul in December last year but he apparently ended the relationship because she became too controlling and stopped him from having female friends or saving their numbers on his phone.

In a statement to the court, Paul said;

“This has caused me stress and anxiety. I have difficulty breathing and sleeping…it’s been difficult on my family and friends who have been contacted by her.”

However, Eve Shelley, mitigating, said Cherelle was in a “vulnerable” position and “couldn’t understand why the relationship had suddenly ended” after a few weeks.

“She tried to contact him and see why the relationship finished. They had spent 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week with each other and it just stopped. Although she has not been diagnosed with any mental health condition, at the time her mental health was in a bad place.”

Cherelle pleaded guilty to harassment and as a result, she lost her job, received a 2-year restraining order from Paul, was given a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £85 costs and £20 victim surcharge.

    Why describe her as Nigerian-British? Why do Naija folks like to claim everyone? I did a google search and apparently dailymail describes her as from South Hampton. Also she looks biracial.

      @Professor X, thanks! I wouldn’t be surprised if it turns out that she’s never even ever been to Nigeria, but you can trust the British press to quickly add the “Nigerian” (or any other African country) when something bad happens. Meanwhile, you will hardly (if ever) see the same tag or association when it comes to the likes of Anthony Joshua, Tiffany Porter or even Chuka Umunna. SMDH

      @Jummy, I live in the UK so my advise to you is to read the ORIGINAL news stories (the biggest of which unsurprisingly was in the Daily Mail), rather than second-hand versions. The term “Nigerian-British” was used in virtually all of them. It is not Nigerians “claiming” her so much as the Brits re-branding her.

      Jummy, you are right. It did! LOL!
      Nonetheless, my point about the British press still holds.
