A leaked intimate video uploaded online ends after the Premier League legend’s 10-year marriage ends, the player confirmed via his Instagram.
Two-time Chelsea player Didier Drogba has revealed he has split up Lalla Diakate after appearing in an intimate video in bed with a mystery unknown woman.
The 42 year old met Lalla in Paris in the late 1990s and they tied the knot in 2011, however it seems the relationship is over after the saucy images went viral.
In the past, the retired Ivory Coast striker has kept his private life discreet as he tries to protect his loved ones from the limelight.
However after being caught out via this footage, he has been forced into making a statement confirming his relationship with is now ex-wife was over.
The photos and clips soon went viral on social media with hundreds of thousands couldn’t believe what they were witnessing knowing he’s a married man.
The film, which a representative claimed had been hacked, showed the bare-chested Drogba in bed with a semi-naked woman who playfully bites his shoulder as he screams in pain.
He then speaks to her in French about teeth getting sunk into him, and appears to say: “She’s positive! She’ll infect me by biting me!”
Of course, that only went on to spark headlines in his native West African homeland, prompting him to break his silence and admit that he and Lalla, who was born in Mali, have gone their separate ways.
Didier Drogba has revealed his ten-year marriage is over, as he & his now ex wife split last year after more than 20 years together.
Drogba met Lalla Diakate, a Malian, in the late 1990s in Paris and they tied the knot in 2011.
