Justin Dean, the estranged husband of popular dancer, Korra Obidi has denied stealing the sum of $5,000 from her.
Recall that Obidi laid the allegation in a Facebook Live session on Saturday.
She also accused Dean of neglecting their children’s welfare.
“Mistakenly, I sent money to my joint account with Justin Dean. I transferred $5000 there, he emptied the account and has downright stolen from me.
“We’re separated and he has stolen from me and my girls. This is daylight robbery. I’ve messaged him to return this money he stole and he gave some excuses, trying to accuse me of stealing his gold.
“I don’t know what’s he’s talking about but he just stole $5000 from I and my girls, we have lawyers fees to pay, rent at this point, but he wants us to be homeless.
“He’s stealing from me at this point and he’s not giving me money for food for the girls, I’m taking care of these girls by myself and he’s still stealing from us,” she said.
Korra Obidi also gave Dean 24 hours to respond.
In a response few hours after the FacebookLive, the doctor denied stealing from his estranged wife, noting that it was an “accident”.
Admitting that he “transferred money”, the chiropractor explained, “It was an accident. I was not expecting anyone to transfer any money to the joint account or any account. I was paying bills. I’m a busy person. I returned the money, it was an accident, a bona fide accident.
“$27,445, that’s what I make as a $300 an hour clinician. An elite clinician, one of the top paid clinicians in the country.”
Dean had in March announced that he would file for divorce from Korra Obidi, whom he accused of narcissism, among other allegations.
