Divorce Affair

Court throws out Ex wife of Odartey Lamptey’s appeal

The Court of Appeal on 15th July, 2021 threw out for the second time an appeal against Nii Odartey Lamptey, filed by his ex-wife Gloria Appiah . Her suit was to appeal to own her ex-husband’s seven-bedroom East Legon mansion.

Early 2020, the Court of Appeal threw out the first appeal filed by the ex-wife of the former Aston Villa Striker to get the plush residence as part of her alimony after the dissolution of their marriage.

Odartey Lamptey speaking after the court proceedings said “it’s been eight years of litigation but I am grateful to God for always being there for me. Few people survive in this kind of situation but thank Him I am alive and kicking, I will also want to use this opportunity to thank each and everyone who supported me throughout this battle.”


In 2013, reports of DNA tests uncovered the fact that the  three children that Odartey had fathered were not indeed his children.

The impasse emanated from when his wife, Gloria wanted Nii Odartey Lamptey to send ‘their’ first daughter abroad to further her studies at a cost of £26,000 a year for three years.

Nii Odartey Lamptey then objected, citing the expensive nature of the fees and recommended that his daughter schools in Ghana for her University education.

Gloria couldn’t come into terms with the  husband and filed for divorce.

Nii Lamptey agreed to the divorce and secretly took samples from the three children and did a DNA test, which reportedly revealed that none of three girls were fathered by him. As a result Gloria demanded 50% of his properties.
