- YEN.com.gh understands that Gloria Appiah, the ex-wife of Odartey Lamptey, has appealed the court ruling which denied her the seven bedroom house of the retired footballer at East Legon in Accra
- A report by an Accra radio station says she is also not happy with the alimony awarded to her
- The court had earlier accused her of adultery because a DNA test revealed that Odartey Lamptey is not the biological father of the three children she delivered for him
Gloria Appiah, the ex-wife of Odartey Lamptey, has filed an appeal in court over the estate of the former Ghana international, YEN.com.gh has learnt.
A report by Accra-based Kasapa FM said Gloria was not satisfied with the decision of an Accra court to deny her 50 percent of Lamptey's assets.
The court ruled that Gloria had committed adultery because all the three children she delivered for her husband were not his, and so rejected her request for half of Odartey's property, including the seven bedroom mansion at East Legon.
The court, however, gave her Odartey's three-bedroom house which is located at Dome in Accra.
YEN.com.gh understands that the court also gave her GHc200,000 out of a GHC500,000 alimony she requested.
The Kasapa FM report said Gloria wants the seven bedroom apartment for herself, hence her decision to appeal the ruling.
Odartey has said in multiple interviews said that his 21-year marriage to Gloria crashed in 2013 after they disagreed on the school for the master's programme of what he thought was his first daughter.
He said his wife wanted her to attend a UK university, but he disagreed due to the cost involved and opted to take her to the Ashesi University in Ghana.
The retired footballer said Gloria began divorce proceedings against him after that episode, a development he said prompted his friends to step in and encourage him to perform a DNA test on his three children.
He said the test revealed to his shock that none of the children was his.
Odartey said he wanted to end his life after the discovery, but was encouraged by his friends, including his current girlfriend, Ruweida Yakubu, to put the tragedy behind him.
Lamptey now has two children with Ruweida and is expecting a third.
