Simon Guobadia Denied U.S. Citizenship

Simon Guobadia’s efforts to obtain U.S. citizenship have reportedly failed due to his troubled past. 

According to reports, Guobadia’s alleged criminal activities date back to 1982 when he initially arrived in the country.

He left voluntarily in 1985 following encounters with law enforcement related to credit card fraud.

Court records indicate that the first denial occurred in July 2022.

Subsequently, a hearing was sought in October 2022, where the denial was upheld, revealing that he had been instructed to leave the US and not return.

However, he reportedly reentered the country with a new work visa.

Following a filing in March 2023, Guobadia purportedly petitioned the government to overturn the denial.

The court documents detail various offenses, including credit card fraud, unauthorized vehicle use, and additional instances of fraud.

On Thursday, the day of Porsha’s divorce filing, Simon took to social media writing:

In the last 17 years, grateful for the opportunity to be able to grow our businesses which in turn keep employing and feeding more American families, and fueling the American economy.

That’s the REAL American Dream….when you bless others with opportunities.🙏🏾
