A British woman has refuted claims she was pushed out of a 5th floor Sunview apartment in Lavington by her Kenyan boyfriend following an argument, revealing she actually slipped and fell.
Tinu Collins, a 25 year old British woman from the Moss Side area of Manchester, told the Manchester Evening News that her Kenyan boyfriend, a London based rapper called Bradley Juma Obomi – popularly known as Trap King Chrome who splits his time between the UK and Kenya – did not throw her off their balcony.
Basically I was a bit drunk sitting on the balcony to get a bit of fresh air. I was having an argument with my boyfriend. My foot slipped. I grabbed onto the railings to pull myself up, but I couldn’t and fell from the fifth floor. I was conscious when I fell.
She broke her left leg, right ankle, pelvis and spine in the fall, at around 11pm on June 12, but somehow survived. After undergoing surgery she is reported to be in a better condition.
Speaking to the M.E.N. from her Nairobi hospital bed, Tinu said: “I just had an operation yesterday. I’m feeling a bit better now.”
Her boyfriend added that he was in the living room when she fell and it happened in a matter of seconds and that he is happy she is alive.
I ran downstairs immediately. She was laying down on the floor, screaming. That’s how I knew she was alive, because she was making a noise. I thought she had died. It’s pretty high up. But she’s alive. Thank God she’s alive.
When contacted by the British newspaper, he confirmed that he had spoken to the police and the investigation was ongoing, but vehemently denied ‘rumours’ in the Kenyan press that he had pushed his girlfriend.
Initial reports in the Kenyan press claimed sources said the couple had been fighting each other over alleged infidelity ‘for quite a while’.
According to Kenyan newspaper The Star, former South London resident Trap King was allegedly deported from the UK and his lover decided to come to visit him in Kenya.
He released a song eight months ago, which was produced by Grand Pa records. Refiggah, the founder of Grandpa, said Chrome is not signed under his record label and only one song, Bring Em Out, was recorded.
Their friends have launched a fundraising drive to help raise funds to pay for her expensive treatment as she doesn’t have medical insurance. If you would like to help, you can do so via the GoFundMe page.
