Ghana football superstar Sulley Muntari?s marriage with supermodel Menaye Donkor is on the verge of collapse after months of fights over claims of cheating, and the wife?s refusal to have kids.
The marriage with the Christian model, which was not popular with the devout Muslim parents of the Black Stars player, is hanging by a thread according to a report by AfriCulture.
Ghana?s leading soccer website, Ghanasoccernet.com reported that Menaye has not visited the AC Milan star in their home in Italy since August, which is an indication that the love birds are no longer on the same wavelength.
Now the report from Canada where Menaye lives with the rest of her family seems to confirm that they are on the verge of divorcing, with Muntari being accused of cheating while Menaye?s insistence on pursuing her modelling and acting career (thus delaying having kids), looks to have taken its toll.
?Their marriage will not survive. They don?t spend much time together and I know that he cheats for sure. The absence of kids also caused a rift between them,? the source told Afri-Culture.
The Ghanaian power couple is no stranger to divorce rumors.
Earlier this summer, fans began speculating that there was trouble in paradise when Menaye missed her mother-in-law?s birthday party.
However, the former Miss Ghana?s manager, who is also her sister-in-law, told the media that she wasn?t able to attend the event because she had other engagements.
Sources said the couple isn?t as happy as they want the public to think, and that the divorce will happen ? it is just a matter of time.
?They are working hard to save their marriage, but by the way that it?s going, it?s not going to work out.?
The news will surely delight Hajia Kande and Alhaji Muniru, the parents of the midfielder, who want a normal Muslim family for their son.
This will also spark hopes for Sahada, the America-based long time girlfriend of Muntari, and also the daughter of a leading Islamic cleric and philantrophist Sheikh Mustapha Ibrahim.
This also adds to the growing number of Ghanaian footballers who have problems with their marriages resulting in messy divorce cases.
