GoFundMe fallout: No, you can’t go on vacation on our bill, fans tell singer Korra Obidi

Fans of singer Korra Obidi across social media have condemned popular Nigerian-American singer and dancer as she flew immediately to Hawaii after her GoFundMe netted $55,130 of the $100,000 target.

Obidi created GoFundMe on Friday, allegedly to seek a good lawyer, adding that she wanted to overturn the right of her ex-husband, Justin Dean, over their kids.

She had written in the fundraiser:

Please uphold my rights as a mother. As a divorced single mother, I am also a singer, dancer, and content creator, producing videos from home on motherhood, music, and dance.

Despite sharing 50/50 custody with my ex-husband, we both have full physical and legal custody of our children, for over two years following our divorce decree, my ex-husband has refused to sign the necessary paperwork for our children to obtain international passports, preventing them from visiting my family in Africa, despite my clearance in the divorce decree.

Recently, I discovered that my ex has obtained image rights protection from Meta, prohibiting me from featuring my children on Facebook and jeopardizing my livelihood as a content creator. All my videos with my children are being removed, and my page is at risk of deletion.

Despite a court order amendment and final judgment on April 5, 2024, my ex continues to openly threaten and encourage his fans to maliciously report my page, further endangering my livelihood and relationship with my children.

Due to the exorbitant legal fees in Los Angeles, I am unable to afford proper legal representation to reclaim my rights.

I am reaching out to the public for support with legal fees to prevent this ongoing torment and protect my relationship with my children.

However, on Sunday, the dancer, after raising the money, said during a live session on Facebook that she had plans for a vacation in Hawaii.

Her decision has been greeted by outrage from her fans, with many alleging that the main intent of the GoFundMe was never to file a suit against the husband but to lavish on her extravagant lifestyle.

Wanda Johnson, a Facebook user, said, “She got y’all’s money, now she’s at the airport. Some of you are so weak to believe her foolishness. She is always begging, scamming, and manipulating.”

“You are gradually becoming a professional beggar on social media,” one Chigoziri Ohochukwu on Facebook opined.

“Mad that she can’t post pictures because without posting pictures she can’t make money. She needs to post pictures of her kids to make money. But she would rather go to Hawaii than see. Her children sickening and people gave her $.Or whatever was on that go find me.People needs to report the go fund me everybody needs to report to get their money back,” a user who identifies as Jennifer Lynn Russell claimed.

Nene Peters stated, “WTF you was just on here crying about you need a lawyer now, you traveling. I’m done with you wow.”

“Two days ago she was crying for donation now she is traveling,” said Hermi Matilya

Meanwhile, Bridget O’Connell said, “Yeah I’m not gonna lie Traveling to Hawaii is crazy after receiving all that money for Lawyer girl! You shoulda did that in silence.”

Also, Mary Monique Napont said, “It’s none of your business lady. She is an influencer, performer, student, and most importantly a great mother. Leave her be. You are a part of the problem. She’s not hurting you in any way. If you don’t like her, don’t follow her. It’s that simple.”

Recall that the divorce and custody battle between Obidi and Dean has been on the public scene lately. Recent developments have granted Justin the right to restrict their two children from featuring on Obidi’s online content.

She posted a plea online, accusing Dean of abuse and “gaslighting” during their marriage, claiming he is now subjecting their daughters to similar treatment.
