Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has filed to end his marriage in an acrimonious divorce battle, demanding DNA tests to ascertain the paternity of his three kids.
The Turkey-based superstar filed for divorce from his wife, Gifty Gyan, at the Divorce and Matrimonial Division of the High Court in the Ghanaian capital Accra.
In the latest messy divorce battle involving rich Ghanaian footballers, Gyan seems to have accused his wife of infidelity after casting doubt over his role in fathering the three children publicly known as his kids.
The 2010 World Cup superstar denied fathering their three children and is demanding a DNA test to be carried out on all three to ascertain if he is the true father of the children.
Gyan and Gifty have not been on talking terms for the past eight months and now the Ghana captain has slapped the woman with divorce papers to end their five year marriage.
He filed for divorce two months ago when he was on summer holidays.
The striker’s decision to officially terminate the marriage is a clear indication that their differences have now become irreconcilable.
Gyan is even making frantic preparations to marry an Accra-based business woman after his marriage to Gifty is officially dissolved by the court.
The striker has successfully shielded his wife and three children from the public eye and media scrutiny but his action in court has thrust his family into the public sphere.
Details of why Asamoah Gyan’s marriage to Gifty has hit the rocks are unknown but sources close to the estranged wife say Gyan grew cold towards Gifty after another woman came into his life.
