The Captain of the Black Stars of Ghana, Asamoah Gyan aka Baby Jet, has filed for divorce from his wife, Gifty Gyan; the duo has been married for five years.
Asamoah Gyan, the former Sunderland, and Al-Ain striker, according to reliable sources, demanded the divorce after he started an alleged amorous affair with Nina Atala, a former wife of imprisoned Jamaican Reggae artiste, Buju Banton.
Baby Jet, who is Ghana’s record goalscorer for the senior national team with 51 goals has also demanded a DNA test on all his children with his estranged wife. A source said Asamoah Gyan started parting ways with his wife after the lovey-dovey relationship with Nina kicked off.
Nina Atala, a businesswoman, is known to have dated quite a number of politicians, A-list footballers and some celebrities in the creative arts industry including recently married John Dumelo.
Nina owns the property that houses Baby Jet’s pub, ‘BJ’s Sports Bar’ in Osu and is the manageress of Asa Band.
Nina Atala, who officially separated from the imprisoned Buju Banton last year was represented by popular Ghanaian lawyer and Executive Secretary to the President Nana Asante Bediatuo.
Nina, was in June this year mistaken for Gyan’s wife at the grand opening of his sports bar, interestingly, the same lady was also mentioned as Gyan’s wife during Emmanuel ‘Game Boy’ Tagoe’s fight in defense of his IBO World title this month.
Baby Jet and Gifty have been together since 2003 and got married in 2013 after their second child was born.
Gifty is currently out of the country after her passport was initially seized by members of the Gyan family to prevent from leaving the country.
Asamoah Gyan, 32, currently plays as a striker for Kayserispor, Turkey after an unsuccessful task at Shanghai SIPG in China.
Numerous calls and messages placed to Samuel Anim Addo, manager of Asamoah Gyan for a comment but to no avail.
