Well it does run in the family, doesn’t it?
A 31 year old Paris woman, Mariam Camara, has made a series of blistering allegations to the Sun. The shop worker was Toure’s girlfriend whilst they were teenagers back in Cote d’Ivoire, but fell out of contact when he went to Europe to make his name as one of the world’s best midfielders.
Mariam now claims Toure fathered a child on her, despite him being married, and refuses to cater for the child. She says the only time the Manchester City midfielder would send her money is when she sends him nekkid photos of herself, as otherwise he refuses to do so.
“Whenever he sent the money there were conditions attached.” She told the Sun.
“I would have to give him something, like nekkid photos or photos of my bum. And if I didn’t send the photos we wouldn’t get the money.
“When I refused he stopped paying anything to his son. He wouldn’t even say hello.
“It was manipulative. He knew that without him we’ll struggle, so he can ask for these things”
Camara claims after initially denying the child was his, a DNA test conclusively proved otherwise.
The test showed there was a 99.999991270957 per cent chance that the toddler was Toure’s.
Mariam and Yaya Toure reconnected in Paris in November 2011. Despite being married with three kids, Toure carried on an affair with her that later led to the pregnancy in June 2012.
After informing him about it, he vehemently denied it, and only catering for the child after the DNA test. Yet even that has a caveat.
The Premier League star has only seen his child twice, according to Mariam.
