The estranged wife of footballer Odartey Lamptey, Gloria Adjoa Appiah-Lamptey has instructed her lawyers to immediately file a third appeal after the court threw out her second appeal in a bid to continue to stay in a seven-bedroom East Legon mansion built by the footballer.
This is her last-ditch attempt to own the house.
She lost the case, filed an appeal and in the course of the second appeal, although the court had ordered her to vacate the East Legon house and move to Dome Kwabenya, her lawyers managed to use the appeal process to get her to stay put until the pendency of the appeal case, which took two years.
Gloria Appiah Lamptey is now seeking to use the same court appeal system for the third time, to stay at the East Legon Mansion without moving out no matter how long the third appeal took, should she go ahead with it.
Sources say she had also planned to appeal on a 40% of GHc500,000 alimony cash the court awarded her but was advised by her lawyers against it. She also wanted to be declared a 50% shareholder in Odartey Lamptey’s school which is doing very well.
Odartey Lamptey on his part, MyNewsGh.com understands, is planning to, this weekend, eject her by force of arms from the East Legon House.
Odartey Lamptey married Gloria Appiah (formerly known as Gloria Odartey Lamptey) for 21 years and they had three children which unknown to the star footballer belonged to other men.
His mother was against the marriage because of the circumstances he met Gloria. She had come to his German Club Training camp to watch the team play from where the two hit it off.
After having 3 children behind Nii Odartey Lamptey and letting him take care of these kids without knowing he was not the father–Gloria took a case to court to get 50% of the former footballer’s assets, following their divorce.
Odartey Lamptey got to know that the three kids he thought to have fathered with his wife were never his after DNA tests proved so. After going to court to try and take a lot of Odartey’s assets’ with her, her bid failed when it was confirmed that she actually got pregnant through other men and not by the footballer.
However, her hopes were dashed when an Accra High Court dismissed Gloria’s claim. Justice Cecilia Don-Chebe Agbevey completely quashed Gloria’s motion to have the ex-footballers assets equally divided. Gloria has however been allocated Nii Lamptey’s property located at Dome as he had proposed but what Gloria actually wants is Nii Odartey Lamptey’s 7-bedroom apartment in East Legon.
