Baffour Gyan, the brother of former Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan has clarified the actual implications of the court ruling of his brother’s divorce settlement with his former partner Gifty Gyan.
The divorce case, which had been ongoing for the past few years, was officially settled on Tuesday, October 31, 2023, marking the end of a lengthy legal battle between the Ghanaian footballer and his ex-wife.
Gyan had previously raised questions about the paternity of his three children with Gifty, but the court ruled that all three children were, in fact, his biological offspring.
As part of the settlement, Gyan has been ordered to provide a GHc 25,000 monthly stipend. However, this monthly stipend does not cover school fees, medical and dental care expenses, and flight tickets for travel, among other costs for his children.
The settlement also involves properties in the United Kingdom officially being handed to Gifty. Furthermore, one other business, a gas station in Prampram, has been handed over to his former partner, and a BMW car owned by the former Black Stars captain is now in her possession.
In response to this development, Gyan took to Twitter to share a cryptic message, saying, “If I have 10pts and I keep quiet cos I’m matured, and you have 2 pts and you going find public sympathy, then it’s cool. You are very funny. This is deep so think about it.” This message left many of Gyan’s followers puzzled, and they responded with their thoughts and interpretations.
Baffour Gyan in a recent interview with Asempa FM offered some clarification, suggesting that the court’s ruling was actually in Gyan’s favor. He explained that the properties in question were initially registered in Gifty’s name by Gyan during their relationship, and the monthly stipend of GHC 25,000 is intended for the three children, not for the ex-wife implying that the former Sunderland striker was losing nothing more than what he had willingly given out in the past.
Asamoah Gyan’s cryptic message has been decoded, regarding the news of the verdict by an Accra High Court against him.
According to a close source, the facts of the case are as follows:
