Thu, 2 Mar 2023 Source: iNews

Christian Atsu's wife talks about allegations that she was trying to get a divorce from him before he died.

From having two secret children with a woman to going to hell for using juju, as Nana Agradaa said, the latest news about Christian Atsu's death is that he was having trouble with his marriage.

Ghanasoccernet alleged that the life of the late player was a bit complicated because his marriage to his long-time partner Marie-Claire Rupio had broken down.

Before he died, it is said that Twasam worked hard for two years to get out of his 11-year marriage, which had given him three beautiful children.

Technically, Atsu and Rupio were no longer together, and she didn't want anything to do with the former Vitesse Arnhem and Rio Ave player.

During the last part of his contract at Newcastle, their marriage started to fall apart, and they had to go to court to get divorced.

People started to wonder about Atsu and Rupio's marriage when he didn't publicly support his wife when she published her best-selling book Stop Bullying Me, which got 5 out of 5 stars and great reviews on Amazon.

”When his mother-in-law moved in with them in the UK somewhere in 2021, Atsu’s marital problems began.

Atsu felt alone in the home as a result of the wife’s increased focus on the mother. He sometimes found it challenging to play with his children because his mother-in-law has taken control of everything in the home.

‘Atsu was enraged to the core at this. So, in order for them to continue living their private lives, he instructed the wife to politely request that her mother relocates to Germany.

‘His wife objected to the idea because she believed the player didn’t want her mother to live with them, which is how their marital issues began.

‘Atsu was fervently looking for a new club at that time because he only had two months left on his contract with Newcastle.

The duo could not patch their differences as Marie-Claire, a dancer-cum-singer-cum-author, also had issues with the ex-Chelsea footballer.

Atsu then moved to Saudi Arabia and signed for Al Raed after failing to find a club in Europe.

Due to a long-standing disagreement [with the wife] before he left for Saudi Arabia, the wife then used his absence to push for a divorce.

He took the decision to return to Ghana due to injuries and a dip in form in Saudi Arabia. He considered hanging up his boots but before that, he had plans to play for his boyhood team, Hearts of Oak, even if only for a season.

But the divorce was in court, and the thoughts about alimony and child support weakened him spiritually.

He decided to change his career plans at that point and also needed money to fund a ton of unfinished projects in Ghana.

He then made the decision to put off his plans to don the Rainbow jersey in order to sign a lucrative new deal with another European team.

Hatayaspor was his only choice and so decided to relocate to Turkey. Remember that before moving to Saudi Arabia, he turned down a rich offer from an unknown Turkish club because he wanted to spend his final years with Hearts of Oak.

If the divorce proceeding hadn’t begun, Atsu would have returned to Ghana and be playing in the Ghana Premier League.

Whether that trial will go ahead is in doubt. She could seek an annulment and have her rights to Atsu’s estate resolved posthumously”. a source told GHANAsoccernet.

Amidst the virality of the report, Christian Atsu’s wife, Marie has locked her Instagram account and gone private.

Prior to this, her page was accessible to all and she normally shared pictures of her kids with captions like ‘Daddy will be proud of you’ and many others.

Does this give a hint that all was not well between them before Atsu’s death? Ah, well time will tell.
