Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has revealed that his ten-year marriage with Lalla Diakate is over, after videos broke the internet of him and a woman being intimate.

The video showed the bare-chested Blues legend in bed with a nearly-naked young woman, and controversy surrounding the video may have led to the break up between Didier and Lalla.

The Chelsea legend tied the knot with Lalla in 2011, after they met in Paris back in the 90s, and the 42-year-old has been silent about his affairs ever since.

Drogba has broken his silence and has now revealed that his marriage with Lalla is over, while also asking for his privacy to be respected.

Drogba wrote on Instagram: “I’m not in the habit of discussing my private life.

“But, because of speculation in the media today, I can confirm that sadly, after 20 years together, Lalla and I took the difficult decision to separate last year.

“We remain very close, and our main priorities have been to protect our children and our family’s private life.

“May God bless you.”
