Ukrainian woman accuses Super Eagles striker of fathering her babies
A Ukaranian woman is accusing Brown Ideye of fathering her two children while he was playing there with Dynamo Kyiv
The woman called Alex through a series of Instagram post has been accusing Ideye of fathering her son and daughter.
From the photos posted on Instagram, the boy and girl in question is mixed race and Alex has been accusing Ideye of abandoning her and the children.
She said Ideye has not seen the children-Michelle and JoelBrown- since they were born.
The striker played in Ukraine with Dynamo Kyiv from 2011 to 2014 before moving to West Brom in England.
The woman claims it was during this time that the 27-year-old had an affair with her which resulted in the children.
Though he has remained silent on the issue, Ideye reposted his wife's reply to the claim ion Instagram where she pleaded with the woman to follow the right procedure if her claims were llegitimate.
"Dear All, my attention was drawn to this account on IG,which has for the last few weeks been used for the single purpose of discrediting me and my family," Ideye's wife who has two sons for the Olympiacos striker wrote on Instagram.
"The acct claims my husband has 2 children he fathered in Kiev,Ukraine. It claims the boy is 3 years old and alleges 'my husband hasn't come to see him' hence, the campaign.
"Then goes on to claim they have a girl together who just turned 1 on Dec 20th,2015, which apparently also,he's yet to 'see'Hmmmm..
"If there is a legitimate claim,am sure this beautiful,educated,social media savvy person,would have long taken a legal approach...
"I share this because perhaps they will also attempt to contact some of our good friends to further whatever agenda they have, also, because I've spent a good part of my adult life so far,advocating for people's rights and educating my peers, and younger people to never stay SILENT in the face of any form of bullying or harassment and therefore will not shy away from doing same for myself.
"Where there are blessings, there are also curses lingering to weave their way in, if you allow it. The hate is real people(even from those you don't know)but so is the LOVE️and that is where I choose to focus.My only prayer and wish for he/she/they is that, they "find some peace of mind" as we all prepare to usher in a wonderful new year in a few days."
