Fitness trainer Frankie Kiarie, alias Frankie Just Gym It has been forced to come clean on allegations that he is a deadbeat father.
Frankie’s baby mama Maureen Waititu, claimed that she is a single mother who takes care of their children all by herself, painting Frankie as a dead beat father.
Responding via his YouTube channel, Frankie revealed he sends upkeep money every week as well as paying school fees for his son.
“Each week I send money for my children’s upkeep. I send sh6,000 and personally I spend like Sh2,500. I pay sh150,000 for my son’s school fees per semester at Montessori. My mum helps me with a percentage of that,” he said.
He added that he also pays for nanny services.
“My children have always had two nannies until recently and I was paying both of them. My baby mama and I had an agreement on how we going to be splitting nannies salary, I pay a specific amount, and then she tops up and that’s what we’ve been doing for the past year,” he added.
Further saying that,
“I really don’t see where the part of the deadbeat dad comes in based on that explanation. Yesterday (Saturday, June 11) I actually paid for online classes on Zoom. I want to ask you guys to really think hard about what a deadbeat dad means because I take care of my kids at all times.”
Frankie also said he left the house for Maureen Waititu and the children because he wants them to live a comfortable life.
“When we were together in 2016, we were living in Ruaka and had a really good house where we stayed for four years. During our son’s (firstborn) first birthday I proposed to maureen and it got to a point the landlady decided to increase the rent and used to complain to my mum about that.
“She told me ‘this is your family right now and I never want to hear you complain about rent again’ and I was like okay. And she said, ‘my house in westlands I want to give it to you as a gift an engagement gift.
“The people who were living there have moved out and was thinking of renting it out but since I’ve seen you’ve become a man and you gonna have a family I wanna pass that house to you,he said.
“That’s where my children stay. Personally I’m not a malicious person. Right now my goal is to create a conducive environment for my children to grow up in. The house is close to school and it makes it easier for me to visit them.”
