Gyan and Gifty's marital issues in court
In 2018, Gyan prayed to the court to annul his 2013 marriage with the United Kingdom-based Gifty.
As part of his demands, Ghana's all-time leading goalscorer had questioned the paternity of their three children and demanded a DNA test. The test results confirmed him as the father of all three children.
Gyan was seeking the annulment based on Gifty being 'married' already, a sham marriage in 2002, at the time she was marrying him.
