Lithur filed on May 2, 2018, to end their 27-year-old marriage, which she said has caused her reputational damage.

She contends that Lithur’s divorce petition contained lies, which embarrassed her in the public eye.

Addo was described as an irresponsible mother, adulterous, cruel and violent person in the divorce petition.

She also said her ex-husband's claim that she travelled to South Africa to buy property between $350,000 and $500,000 as soon as she left office in 2017 suggested she was corrupt.

Addo said this led to the Office of the Special Prosecutor investigating her for corruption and corruption-related offences, money laundering, and illegal acquisition of property in South Africa.

She wants a retraction and apology published on social media and some prominent news sites, among other things.

Suggestion of infidelity

In Lithur's petition, he claimed Nana Oye has been receiving calls at odd hours that last longer than ordinary calls.

Initially, he claimed, the calls had been from Samuel Cudjoe, but later, another man known as James Yankah, whom he described as Nana Oye's 'childhood sweetheart', also started calling her at such times.
