Captain of the Ghana national team (The Black Stars), Asamoah Gyan has allegedly filed for divorce from his wife, Gifty Gyan, at the Divorce and Matrimonial Division of the High Court, Accra.
In the messy divorce case, the Black Stars skipper has also denied fathering their three children and is demanding a DNA test to be carried out to ascertain if he is the father of the children.
Ghana media report that Gyan and his wife Gifty have not seen eye to eye in the last few months, and their divorce is now imminent.
It is understood that the former Sunderland and Udinese striker is currently making preparation to marry an Accra-based businesswoman once his marriage to Gifty is annulled.
Although Gyan has had a ‘scandal-laden’ career, he has successfully shielded his wife and three children from the public eye and media scrutiny.
Sources close to the estranged wife say Gyan grew cold towards Gifty after another woman came into his life.
A major scandal brewed when the said woman was in June this year mistaken for Asamoah Gyan’s wife at the grand opening of his new sports bar located in Osu, Accra.
Furthermore, the same lady was mentioned as Asamoah Gyan’s wife when Emmanuel ‘Game Boy’ Tagoe fought his last bout in defense of his IBO World title this month.
Ghanaweb.com reports that Gifty’s passport was seized by Baffour Gyan, who is the elder brother of Asamoah Gyan, to supposedly prevent her from returning to Asamoah’s residence in the United Kingdom.
Gyan and Gifty have been together since 2003 and got married in 2013 after their second child was born
