Popular comedienne and OAP Helen Paul has taken to social media to set the records straight on her alleged frosty relationship with A-list comedian Ali Baba.
Recall that Ali Baba posted about ‘backstabbers’ on his Instagram handle, and since then speculation has been rife as to whom he was referring to in his post, with the many fingers pointing to Helen Paul.
She shared this on her Instagram page:
“I have watched with mixed feelings, ranging from bewilderment at first, to amazement, and now utter amusement, as some mischief makers have tried to create a non-existent frosty relationship between me and my father and mentor in the industry, Ali Baba. It all started with my jabs at a show – something we all as comedians throw at each other every now and then. All done for laughs – nothing personal. Ali Baba is someone I respect a lot and it will be foolhardy for anyone to think that I was ‘insulting’ him at that event. I am like a daughter to him and I am sure if he has any issues with me, he would, as an elder and a father, talk to me personally about it. The account and scenario described in his post allegedly referring to me did not even happen to or involve me. It amuses me how people easily read between imaginary lines so that they, like Don King, can promote battles, lol.”
