- Reports have it that Asamoah Gyan’s wife was married to another man before marrying the footballer
- It has been gathered that it was a ‘marriage of convenience’ with the knowledge of Gyan
- Gifty also said she is not a cheat and that a DNA test will vindicate her
YEN.com.gh earlier reported the claims of a Accra radio presenter, Christian Adusei, that the wife of Asamoah Gyan, Gifty Gyan, was married to another man in Italy.
The report stated that Gyan found out recently that while married to Gifty, she was still married to that her Italian husband.
The Ghana international footballer reportedly sent a delegation to Italy to beg the said husband of Gifty, and also ask for forgiveness from him.
It was then that the delegation realised that the man bears a striking resemblance to their children, a reason why the striker was alleged to have demanded a DNA test to ascertain the paternity of the kids.
However, new information gathered by YEN.com.gh on Mynewsgh.com, has it that the supposed marriage between Gifty Gyan and the Italian man was a ‘marriage of convenience’.
According the report sighted by YEN.com.gh, that marriage took place when Gifty was only 16 years old but with the knowledge of Gyan.
The report explained that Gifty needed a UK visa in 2002 for a medical treatment, and so it became necessary for her to contract that marriage for that purpose.
Gyan, at that time, was said to be ‘broke’ and with Liberty Professional, and so could not afford taking Gifty, then his girlfriend, to the UK without any assistance, therefore, he agreed on the ‘marriage of convenience’ to take place.
In a related development, some Ghanaians have criticized Asamoah Gyan on his decision to divorce his wife, and also the request for DNA tests.
Meanwhile, it has also been established according to an earlier report by YEN.com.gh that Asamoah Gyan did not ask for the DNA tests at all, but rather his older brother, Baffour Gyan, did.
Baffour is reported to have on many occasions maltreated Gifty and her children, and in a bid to get in his possession all of Gyan’s property, devised a plan to frustrate his wife whom he has been with for 15 years.
Gifty Gyan has also spoken on the issue, saying she is not a cheat and that the DNA tests will vindicate her.
YEN.com.gh is following development with keen interest and would update readers with more information as they come up.
