Former Ghana star, Odartey Lamptey wins his East Legon mansion back from ex-wife

An Accra High Court has granted ex-Black Stars player Odartey Lamptey custody of his East Legon mansion.

The court finally reversed an earlier decision that gave the house to Mr. Lamptey’s ex-wife in their bitter divorce settlement.

According to multiple sources, the judgement takes effect from tomorrow, April 5, 2022.

Lamptey has been renting since 2014 after the wife sued to claim the house following their divorce.

Odartey Lamptey speaking on Angel TV expressed his joy at recovering his home.

“This is a house I bought for $100,000 around 1998/1999 while playing in Germany so you can imagine. I was given one hour to leave the house when my ex wife filed for divorce. I’m extremely happy at this new ruling”

Following the divorce, Lamptey parted away with his five-bedroom house at Dome plus a sum of 400,000 cedis as alimony to the ex wife but Ms Gloria Lamptey insisted she wanted the East Legon House instead.

The relationship between Odartey Lamptey and Gloria Lamptey hit the rocks in 2013 after DNA results revealed that he was not the biological father of his three children after 20 years of marriage.

Lamptey insisted that he never asked his estranged wife to sleep with other men to get pregnant for him after allegations that he was impotent.

He now has two children with his partner, actress Ruweida Yakubu.

Lamptey owns the Golden Lions Soccer Academy and Glow Lamp International School.

Odartey, 47, played for Asante Kotoko and Aston Villa in his heydays. He is currently the coach of local premier league side Elmina Sharks.
