Footy-ghana.com understands that former Black Stars midfielder Nii Odartey Lamptey is currently embroiled in a bitter divorce battle with his wife Gloria.
After reports emerged that DNA tests had allegedly uncovered the fact that the couple?s three children were not indeed fathered by the former World?s best juvenile player, footy-ghana.com did some digging and uncovered a series of events that has led to this impasse.
According to reliable sources, sometime last year, Gloria wanted Nii Lamptey to send their first daughter abroad to further her studies at a cost of ?26,000 a year for three years.
Footy-ghana.com has learnt that Nii Lamptey objected, citing the fact that the expense was too much and recommending that his daughter schools in Ghana for her University education.
Footy-ghana.com sources reveal that Gloria was reportedly incensed by her husband?s stance and filed for divorce.
Footy-ghana.com sources further reveal that Nii Lamptey initially agreed to the divorce but delayed in his response because he reportedly suspected his wife of alleged infidelity.
Footy-ghana.com understands that the former midfielder, who represented Ghana at the 1992, 1994 and 1996 African Nations Cup tournaments, secretly took samples from the three children and did a DNA test, which reportedly revealed that none of three girls were fathered by him.
Footy-ghana.com understands that Gloria is fighting to get 50% of Nii Lamptey?s estate, which is being hotly disputed by the ex-player, who has asked the High Court to allow the DNA results to be entered in evidence.
Footy-ghana.com understands that the case will go to court in the first week of December.
