Retired Wimbledon and England striker, John Fashanu, has claimed his wife, Abigail Onyekwelu, are currently enmeshed in a messy divorce following allegations of extra-marital affairs from both parties.

On his part, the ex-football legend claims Abigail, who is Joseph Yobo's mother-in-law, cheated on him severally with a woman she refers to as her spiritual partner.

In an interview with the UK Mirror, 52-years old Fashanu said, 'The truth is she’s been cheating on me with a woman she calls her spiritual partner. I caught them in the bed many times. That was why I kicked her out of my house.'

However, 48-years old Onyekwelu denied Fashanu's accusations saying, 'She is a good friend to me. She has a husband and children. It is ridiculous. She was living with me for a while to get back on her feet.'

On been kicked out of the house, the grandmother, who recently welcomed a grand son, said, 'He didn’t kick me out of his house. We were living in my house. He couldn’t have kicked me out of my own house – I kicked him out.' 

In an interesting twist, the beautiful Onyekwelu revealed that she caught the legendary footballer cheating on her with her maid and an unidentified woman in their bed.

In her words, 'I caught him in bed with two women, the housemaid and one other woman. There were two women, it was awful. They were on the bed. They were undressed. I said to them, ‘Who are you and what’s going on here?

'He told me that he doesn’t know what he’s doing and I should pray for him. He knows how to manipulate people, that’s one thing he is good at,' she revealed.

However, Fashanu denied the allegation saying, 'I certainly don’t have to sleep with my cleaner! This is me, John Fashanu, you’re talking to. It’s absolute nonsense. If she wants to make up that ­story, at least let her say it’s Beyoncé or someone.

'Don’t say it’s my cleaner, that’s just b******s. It’s not true at all,' he defended.

While Fashanu disclosed that he already filed for a divorce, Onyekwelu dropped that she didn't know he was going to file for divorce because he had been the one begging her not to expose their separation to the world.
