The former Ghanaian footballer has revealed he had to trick his kids into taking a DNA test so he could find out whether they’re really his.

Speaking with TV3, he said he had to lie to them to get the needed DNA samples.

 “It was a difficult situation, I was very close with the children and for me to be able to do this, I told them I have an infection in my throat and upon doctors advise, I should be able to cure theirs now otherwise when they grow, they will have problems…” he said.

He added that the tests also had to be done on the blind side of his then cheating wife, so he took a doctor to the children’s school to enable him collect the needed samples.

Odartey Lamptey, as you’ll probably know by now, had to divorce his ex-wife after realizing the three children he had raised with her were actually not his.

Luckily for him, he’s found love again, and gotten married and now has his own kids.
