Gambian actress Princess Shyngle says she dated Michael Essien while married to
his wife Akosua Puni, claiming she is not ‘technically ‘ involved with the
football star, Ghana Soccernet reports.
The actress revealed she was in an amorous relationship with the former Chelsea star for a year. The sexy actress has been chronicling personalities she dated and appears the former Real Madrid and AC Milan man was not left out of the tall list.
“I dated him. I had no idea he was married. I had no reason to ask him because I never saw wedding ring on his finger and there were obviously no pictures of him and any woman on a social media, so I assumed that he was a single man,” she revealed. She explained, “what happened was I got to know that he was married and that was a deal breaker for me.
“Obviously we were out in public which was a dumb move and I got contacted by some people that he was married and then I decided to google and I found out that he was really married,” she said.
Essien is currently married to Ghanaian entrepreneur Akosua Puni. He has announced his retirement from international football.
