Former English Premier League (EPL) star, Emmanuel Eboue has reacted to a popular belief that he’s completely broke after his acrimonious divorce with his white wife that stripped him of his assets in England about four years ago.

The Ivorian was reportedly rendered homeless and struggled to find daily bread having lost every bit of his wealth to his ex-wife Aurelie Bertrand. It was also widely circulated that he had nowhere to sleep and depended solely on his friends for shelter.

Eboue has dismissed those report in a fresh interview with Ghana’s Kofi Mensah on Empire FM. “When [people] say Emmanuel Eboue lost everything, it’s not nice…

“Because I had a divorce [case] and they [court] said my wife won, they gave her all my properties – my two houses, money and the cars that I had in England.

“I wasn’t worried about it because I expected that she was going to use it to take care of my children.

Eboue admits he had to overcome depression from the divorce ruling.

“When they [court] said that, I was very disappointed… To be honest, for the first time, I was very down but after that, I prayed and forgot about all of that.”

He continued: “So after that, I left and returned back to Africa. I have my own properties in Africa and so I live with that.

“When I hear people say Emmanuel Eboue lost everything, I laugh. I have properties in Ghana, I have properties in my home country (Ivory Coast).”

“I live very comfortably and I thank God. So when people keep talking and say Emmanuel Eboue doesn’t have anything, he can’t eat, doesn’t have a place to stay, it’s not true,” he reiterated.

The 37-year-old has gone on to remarry his childhood sweetheart Stephanie Boedé after he returned to his home country Ivory Coast.
