Adulterous wife of former Coventry and Aston Villa star Odartey Lamptey files appeal over divorce verdict
The ex-wife of former Aston Villa and Coventry star Nii Odartey Lamptey, Gloria Appiah has filed for an appeal in their native Ghana over a recent court verdict which ruled that she will not get a chunk of his assets because of her adulterous ways.
Miss Appiah has failed in an attempt to gain fifty percent (50%) share of Lamptey’s assets after an Accra High Court ruled that having three children out of wedlock is an “adulterous” life.
She wants to take possession of the seven bedroom mansion in the plush neighborhood of East Legon a suburb of the capital Accra.
On June 14, 2017 the Court Complex in Accra, Justice Cecilia Don-Chebe Agbevey put finality to the bitter divorce battle between the estranged lovers which had lingered on since 2013.
Gloria Appiah’s motion to be awarded half of each of the ex-footballer’s properties was completed quashed.
She has however been allocated Nii Lamptey’s three bed room house located at Dome as he had proposed.
Meanwhile, Her Lordship Justice Cecilia Don-Chebe Agbevey recounts that Gloria Appiah helped Odartey in one way or the other during that 21-years period therefore awarded 40% of a GHc500, 000 cash as alimony to the ex-wife, a cost we understand Nii Lamptey intended to appeal.
Another twist from the DNA test conducted revealed that two of the daughters are biological daughters of one Ken Bediako who works with Tullow Oil and one Frank.
In the meantime, the court is yet to decide on the date to sit on the appeal.
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
