The court granted Gifty properties, including a house in the United Kingdom, a four-bedroom house at Spintex in Accra, a filling station, and two cars.

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 in 2002 before she was marrying him.

It had been reported that Gifty had engaged in the 2002 marriage as a 17-year-old and only did that for UK papers.

But Gyan's lawyer disputed this claim explaining that Gifty's age on her BECE certificate, different from the one in her passport, showed that she was older than 17 at the time.

However, he added, the court chose to go with the details in her passport and we wholeheartedly accepted.

"But why did she not tell Gyan if it was a sham marriage? Even when Gyan heard the information and asked her to speak up about the previous marriage, she refused," the lawyer said.

Gifty's parents at the marriage ceremony with Gyan were not his biological

Apart from the dispute over age, Lawyer Kusi-Appiah also revealed that Gifty used 'fake parents' during her marriage ceremony with Asamoah Gyan.

According to him, witnesses testified in court that the parents at the ceremony were not Gifty's biological parents.
