Court Orders Ghanaian Footballer To Give Ex-wife, A Petrol Station, 2 Cars, 2 Houses, After DNA Confirmation Of 3 Children
Former Ghanaian footballer, Asamoah Gyan ordered to give ex-wife two homes, a petrol station, and two cars after lengthy divorce case.
Former Ghanaian footballer, Asamoah Gyan has been told to pay compensation to his ex-wife after it was confirmed that he is the biological father of their three children.
The former Ghana captain and his ex-wife, Gifty, have been embroiled in a legal battle that involved allegations of infidelity and paternity doubts for three years.
The 37-year-old was later ordered to take a DNA test which confirmed him as their father.
A court in Accra have ordered Gyan to gift his ex-wife, a house in the UK, another home in Accra, a petrol station, and two cars.
It was also ruled that the former Sunderland, Udinese, and Rennes forward must pay 25,000 Ghanaian cedis (£1,729) per month for the children.
It’s said the court ruled that Gifty had made a non-cash contribution to the purchase of the homes because she was the only one caring for the kids while Gyan plied his football career.
The four-bedroom house in Accra had been bought for her prior to their 2013 marriage.
Their marriage was annulled following a petition by the ex-Sunderland star.
Gyan announced his retirement from football in June, having scored a national record 51 goals in 109 games for Ghana.
