A white woman identified as Beth Coombs, 25, from Southsea has revealed how she was betrayed by her Nigerian boyfriend, Chris Chikadibia Esionwu, 29, after they had started a relationship. The duo had met on Tinder before the relationship blossomed.

According to Sun UK, Beth spend a fortune when Chris was faced with deportation after he was detained as a result of visa issues. She spent a fortune driving to see him in a detention centre 100 miles away and said she gave him whatever money she had to spare.

But when he started acting weirdly around her and refused to let her put anything about him on Facebook she became suspicious. It was then she noticed a girl was liking all his pictures on the site and when she contacted her she revealed Chris had been having a relationship with her at the same time.

“My heart snapped in two,” Beth recalled.

“After all I’d done for him! I was furious. I kicked him out then and there.”

Care home worker Beth told how she and Chris had chatted constantly since they’d matched on the dating app at Christmas in 2015. The couple’s first date was a trip to Pets at Home, as Beth was keen to buy a companion for her pet rat. After that they met up two or three times a week and were constantly texting.

When Beth was poorly with flu, she told how Chris stayed with her for a week to look after her.

“I thought he was a keeper,” she admitted.

But in April Beth was stunned when the Home Office detained Chris while they investigated his visa. She explained: “He told me he had a student visa and was completely free to live in the UK.

“I believed him and was sure it was just a mix-up. But, in the meantime, he was being held in a detention centre in Weymouth, nearly 100 miles away.

“I was distraught. We’d only been together for a few months but already I’d imagined a future with Chris.”

Terrified he’d be deported, Beth told how she would drive to visit her boyfriend after work.

She admitted: “While the Home Office was investigating, the one thing Chris really needed was money.

“I took him whatever cash I had spare, which was about £150, for him to buy odd bits and bobs in the detention centre.

“There wasn’t much left once I’d paid my rent and filled up my car with tank after tank of petrol for the journey.”

Months later lawyers ruled it wasn’t safe for Chris to return to Nigeria.

Beth said: “He asked to live with me and said he’d have to tell the Home Office that I would support him financially.

“It was quite full on. We hadn’t talked about moving in together yet. But I was sure that Chris was the man for me, so I agreed.

“Whatever it took to get my boyfriend back.”

Chris was transferred to another detention centre near Heathrow before being released in June.

“He phoned me and asked me to come and collect him,” Beth recalled. “I was over the moon.

“We stayed up all night talking, while Chris filled me in on every little detail of what had happened. It was amazing to have him back.”

But after four weeks, Beth said Chris’ behaviour started to change.

“He’d go out unannounced and any time I tried to take a selfie of us he banned me from showing it to anyone else.

“It was a side of him I hadn’t seen before.

“Our s*x life became non-existent as he would sleep all day when I was out at work then go out as soon as I was home.”

One weekend, when Chris had mysteriously gone away for a few days to Surrey, Beth noticed a girl liking all his Facebook snaps.

“Chris had never mentioned her and I had a strange sick feeling in the pit of my stomach,” she said.

“I sent this girl a message and asked if she’d been seeing him. She replied saying yes, since Christmas – the same time we’d got together.

“Over messages, we pieced together his betrayal. He’d been having a break in his relationship with her while he was down in Weymouth.

“Then, as soon as he was released, he’d picked up right where they left off.

“She’d had no idea he was living with me, or even that he had a girlfriend.

“I wasn’t angry with her, as she’d been duped by Chris too. We ended up finishing our conversation on good terms and both of us agreed to dump him.”

When Beth confronted him she said Chris claimed he’d kept the affair secret because he felt “guilty” that she’d done so much for him.
She ended it then and there.

Beth admitted: “Losing Chris was hard, but I’m glad I discovered the truth.”

Chris said: “Beth insisted on coming to see me when I was having trouble. It was my money she brought.

“I never wanted her help, I just wanted my box of belongings.

“I stayed with her for two weeks while I found my own place. It was only right I stayed with her.

“I met the other girl before I met Beth and I liked spending time with her. Yes I met her while I was seeing Beth but my relationship with Beth wasn’t defined.

“There was nothing between me and Beth. I can count the number of times I slept with her. I wanted to leave but I didn’t know how to tell her because she helped me.

“When Beth found out about Emily she was so mad, I packed my bag. I didn’t want to be there.

“It’s not a crime to fall out of love with someone and end a relationship.”
