BEVERLY HILL, January 15, (THEWILL) – Former Chelsea and Cote d’Ivoire footballer, Didier Drogba, has announced that he has separated from his wife, Lalla Diakate.
The Chelsea legend who has maintained a secret life made the announcement after he appeared in an intimate video in bed with a mystery woman.
The former captain of the Ivory Coast national team was forced to issue a statement after he appeared bare-chested in bed with a nearly-naked young woman.
Confirming his split from Diakate, Drogba wrote: “I’m not in the habit of discussing my private life.
“But, because of speculation in the media today, I can confirm that sadly, after 20 years together, Lalla and I took the difficult decision to separate last year.
“We remain very close, and our main priorities have been to protect our children and our family’s private life.
“May God bless you.”
