Asamoah Gyan’s divorce: Court grants ex-wife cars and two houses

In a recent court ruling in Accra, Gifty Gyan, the ex-wife of former Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan, was awarded several properties as part of their divorce settlement. These assets include a house in the United Kingdom, a four-bedroom house in Spintex, Accra, a filling station, and two cars. Additionally, the court ordered a monthly maintenance fee of GHC 25,000 to be paid to Gifty.

The legal dispute began when Asamoah Gyan filed for divorce, initially denying paternity of their three children and requesting a DNA test. However, the DNA results confirmed that the children are indeed Asamoah Gyan’s biological offspring.

The court’s judgment deemed the 2013 marriage between Gifty Gyan and Asamoah Gyan as valid and still in effect, despite an earlier paper marriage in 2002 when Gifty was 17 years old. The court issued a decree of nullity, annulling the 2013 marriage.

Furthermore, the court acknowledged that the evidence presented indicated that the couple had been in a romantic relationship since 2003 and had two children before formalizing their union through an ordinance marriage.

Regarding Gifty Gyan’s significant contributions to the acquisition of Asamoah Gyan’s assets, the court recognized her caregiving responsibilities and living arrangements with the children while Asamoah Gyan pursued his football career, which entitled her to a share of the assets.

Asamoah Gyan, Ghana’s all-time leading scorer with 51 goals and the record African scorer in World Cup history with six goals, announced his retirement from football in June.
