Adebayor and his family have not had the best of relations in the past. They also love playing their family drama in the public domain.
Late last year, his sisters accused him of neglect, and that despite his massive wealth he has done virtually nothing for them and their mother. The striker hit back, accusing them of using ‘juju’ to try to derail his career.
It’s been quiet on that front since, and whilst you would think they’ve used the time to solve their issues, it turns out it’s been nothing of that sort.
In a lengthy post on his Facebook, the Tottenham Hotspur forward tears into his entire family. His sisters, his mother, his brothers; the only person spared was his late brother Peter Adebayor.
He talked about the house in East Legon, which he said he bought for his sister Yabo to inhabit, yet she rented out without his knowledge. When he called to enquire, she rained insults on him.
He also recounted how he gave huge sums to his brother Kola to start a business, yet nothing materialised of that. He got another of his brothers Rotimi into a football academy in France, yet all he did was steal the mobile phones of other players.
