Premier League legend Didier Drogba has reluctantly announced on social media that his marriage has ended and ended his 20+ year relationship after a mysterious video of him in bed with another woman surfaced last year.
The former Ivory Coast striker was spotted in bed with a bare-chested scantily clad woman last year, suggesting he had told the woman, “She’s positive. She’ll infect me by biting me.”
Afrik Foot reported that Drogba’s entourage alleged the clip was part of an advertisement promoting action against Covid-19, and The Sun said the 42-year-old’s agents claimed he was hacked.
Drogba told his nearly 10 million Instagram following: “I don’t have a habit of discussing my personal life.
“But based on today’s speculation in the media, I can confirm that after 20 years together, Lalla and I unfortunately made the difficult decision to part ways last year.
“We continue to be very close and our top priorities have been to protect our children and our family’s privacy. May god bless you.”
Chelsea’s second top scorer of all time met his wife in Paris in the late 1990s and married her in 2011 until he won three of his four Premier League titles at Stamford Bridge.
The couple have three children together, and Drogba wished his wife and mother a Happy Mother’s Day on social media last year.
The 2012 Champions League winner ended his second term with Chelsea in 2015 and retired in 2018.
