According to a source who spoke to blogger Edgar Obare on condition of anonymity, the talented actress had contracted a little-known company to decorate her backyard with grass carpet, floating shelves, artificial plants and flowers.

Further, the source revealed that Jackie had agreed with the owner of the company that instead of paying the full amount of her services, which came to Ksh102,000, she would only pay half and mention the company in an Instagram post.

However, this was not to be. Reports indicate that although Jackie uploaded photos of her transformed backyard on her Instagram pages, she credited a different company for the work and as expected, this did not sit well with the person who had done the work.

Before outing Jackie on social media, the company’s owner decided to reach out to her to find out why she had acted in such a manner in an attempt to resolve the matter amicably but her pleas fell on deaf ears.

In a twist of events, the actress, who is expecting a child with Blessing Lungaho, threatened to take legal action against the business owner for defaming her.

Screenshots that were shared by a local tabloid showed Jackie asking the business owner to delete the posts that she had put up on social media where she had exposed the former. She also warned her to be careful.

“You are trying to spoil my name for what? Trying to be relevant with my me? I demand you bring down that post if you do not want legal action against you. Be very careful young girl,” Jackie allegedly told her.

Her actions have elicited mixed reactions from social media users, many of whom were left wondering what she was getting from frustrating a small business owner who just wanted visibility for her brand.
