The wife of former Black Stars player, Odartey Lamptey’s wife, Ruweida Yakubu has expressed and shared how she’s been coping with her husband’s unending issues with ex wife, Miss Appiah.
Ruweida Yakubu, who is now into tennis and its related businesses didn’t deny the fact that the whole situation has been disturbing and unpleasant but has never for once abandoned her responsibilities as a wife and mother.
“I am a human being. I have feelings and when the whole divorce brouhaha started, I was also sad for him. I tried to encourage him and asked him to be patient, supporting him and helping him with prayers to help him out of his challenges,” she said.
She continued to add that reactions and comments on social media adds more injury.
“The last time something came up and people were on social media making harsh commentaries, saying that my husband is too soft, was not man enough and urging him to go and attack his ex and lots of harsh words, I felt that was too much for him and even the kids.”
“I have had people attack me verbally and I remember one time in a market, a woman saw me and started hurling insults at me that I am the cause of the mess, but I didn’t talk. As a family, we are dealing with it on a low level,”
Odartey Lamptey’s first marriage to his ex-wife, Gloria Appiah was dissolved after DNA tests on all three children proved he was not the father.
