‘She completely disappeared,’ he said. 

‘No-one has heard a single word from her – family, friends, her family. It’s been a long time, it’s been over a year and right now the courts finally saw me fit to use the District Attorney Child Abduction Unit so now I have some kind of recourse to try and find them.’ 

Chikezie added that he was most concerned with the fact that Linda had cut everyone off including her family. 

According to court docs obtained by TMZ, ‘The court stated there is reason to believe the children have been “taken, detained, and concealed” and have authorized the L.A. County D.A.’s office to investigate and locate Eze’s estranged wife and kids.’

Chikezie also added, on his son’s birthday, that he missed him terribly and urged anyone with information to contact the unit.  

The singer officially filed for divorce from Linda on May 25, 2018. 

He cited irreconcilable differences. The pair were just one month short of seven years of marriage. 

The court documents listed June 2017 as the date of separation.

In August 2017, it was reported that Linda had claimed she was forced to move to a domestic violence safe house ‘because of all the abuse’. 

TMZ reported at the time that she said Chikenzie once threatened, ‘Don’t make me turn this car around and beat your a**.’ 

She added that she believed he was capable of keeping word of his threats.
