Speaking on Asempa FM on November 1, 2023, Gyan emphasised the importance of maintaining privacy over their marital issues.
"I informed Gifty that I would come out and defend myself because of what was happening. I spoke with her and informed her I had remained silent on the matter and had allowed several false stories about me to circulate," he said, Ghanaweb reported.
Gyan did not accuse his ex-wife of leaking the verdict to the media but cautioned the people close to her. "I'm talking today because I have already warned her.''
The verdict by the Accra High Court effectively ended the five-year divorce battle between the former Ghana international and Gifty. The marriage, which had been contracted in 2013, was annulled by the court.

Erica Daniel, an African-American trained intimacy coach, spoke to YEN.com.gh on how the former couple might minimise the impact of the annulment on their children.
''If you're an adult with children and you're going through separation, one of the first and best things you can do is to put them into therapy; another thing is to have an open flow of communication. Let them ask questions; don't remove them from the situation because they will always be part of it. This can help them cope with the separation.
''Allow the children to be children. Don't let them pick sides. Parents should avoid continually speaking harshly about one other in front of their children; this begins to mold the children's perception of either parent. As a result, they should let the youngsters to be children,'' she told YEN.com.gh.
