The on and off relationship between socialite Vera Sidika and singer Otile Brown has taken a nose dive.
The once mushy lovers are throwing Molotov cocktails at each other and are not sparing any drop in airing private details of their once juicy relationship.
For starters, Vera claims that the relationship was dead on the tracks before it took off after the Chaguo la moyo singer starting asking for money. A move she said was an immediate turn-off.
She adds that the 'borrowing' climaxed after they got back together following their much-publicised breakup when he allegedly asked for a Sh500, 000 loan as a top up for a brand new Mercedes Benz.
