Lara Ajanaku-Fagbayi, is the famous celebrity lady, whose marriage to her husband, Tunde Fagbayi met a brick wall after the death of her husband, following a brief illness in Lagos in 2014.
Lara as she is fondly addressed in the social circle both in Lagos and Abuja, is a woman many see as a go getter, who has taste for high profile men with deep pockets.
It could be recalled that Lara was dating a popular business man sometime last year, but the business man was never reported as people couldn’t find them together at any point in time.
Society Reporters NG can authoritatively reveal that the popular business man is Mr Wale Babalakin, the chairman of Bi-Courtney Construction Company.
Dr. WALE BABALAKIN
According to a very dependable source who is close to both of them, the romance has existed between the two as far back as 2013, before Lara relocated to Nigeria with her family from the United State Of America where her late husband was working as an engineer with AERO.
“They have been an item even before the death of her late husband, but many people don’t know about it. The romance has even caused a lot of issues between Lara and her former in-laws, which almost led to them dissolving their marriage, but due to some family members who tried to settle the differences” our source hinted us.
We gathered further that ever since the death of her husband she has enjoyed many things and trips with Mr Babalakin the ladies’ man whose affection is mostly tilted towards married women.
As at the time we are filling this report, another source hinted us that Wale Babalakin has been responsible for her childrens’ welfare and he never complained because he gets anything he wants from Lara, being her long-time lover.
While some quarters maintain that the romance might lead somewhere good for the duo, some also were of the opinion that Wale Babalakin might drop her like a used tissue real soon, following his dalliance with Bisi Awoniyi, one of his long time staff who is a single mother of one son.
Lara’s husband Tunde Fagbayi, aged 53, was the elder brother of Toyin Fagbayi, the Abuja based politician and celebrity lady. He was an Aero engineer and practiced in the United States for many years before he relocated to Nigeria with his family. Unfortunately, his marriage to Lara, which produced four girls, crashed as a result constant of interference from Tunde’s younger sisters. And while Tunde was said to have doted on his daughters, he wasn’t exactly fond of their mother. On her own part, Lara did all she could to avoid having anything to do with Tunde.

The no-love-lost feeling between the couple came to the fore after Tunde’s death. For reasons best known to her, Lara decided to shun his burial ceremony. Her decision was reported to have shocked her in-laws. Lara, who is the younger sister of Tokunbo Ogunsanya, decided it would be best to keep her distance from her husband’s younger siblings. Besides, she is enjoying a relationship with a rich Lagos businessman, Wale Babalakin.
