Ghana and Hertha Berlin star Kevin Prince-Boateng has for the first time spoken about his divorce from ex-wife Melissa Satta.
The 34-year-old ended his four year marriage with the Italian model in 2020 after almost ten years together.
The couple had a son together but the forward decided to end the relationship because he felt mentally unwell.
According to Boateng the relationship got to a point where both were not happy.
“I would like to say I did not leave my wife Melissa Satta for someone else. I never talk about our divorce, but now I want people to stop thinking I cheated on her with Valentina. I am not one who leaves a woman for another woman,” he said as quoted by isaechia.it.
“I decided to separate, it was a difficult period, I was playing for Monza, I was not mentally well. I wanted to find myself. In ten years with marriage, a son, so many this happen and we were at a point of unhappiness that we could not go on,” he added.
Kevin Prince-Boateng has since moved on and currently dates another Italian model. He is in a romantic relationship with Valentina Fradegrada.
