Ghana midfielder Michael Essien’s secret but massive celebrity wedding scheduled for England today has hit a snag forcing its postponement, although publicist, Rachel Fraser flatly denied the story as unfounded.
Tweets from Real Madrid indicating that the rescheduled match had spoilt Essien’s party and reports by several sports news portals in Spain and Ghana were all dismissed by Rachel as untrue.
“Please take this story down immediately as it is completely untrue,” she wrote in an e-mail to P.M.NEWS.
GHANAsoccernet.com reported that the Real Madrid star had planned the marriage to his Ghanaian sweetheart at an exclusive venue in Weybridge today but alarm blew on the secret wedding as yesterday’s sabotage of his club’s game hit the wedding plans.
The postponement of Real Madrid’s game at Rayo Vallecano due to a presumed act of sabotage that left Vallecas stadium insufficiently well lit, means the match will now be played tonight.
Today’s game clashes with Essien’s wedding, forcing the couple to rearrange a new date as the sabotage of the game has extended to a sabotage of the Ghana star’s wedding.
Several celebrities from Ghana, England, Italy, France, Spain and China who were invited for the event are being told of a new date for the big wedding as Real Madrid’s clash at Rayo Vallecano has been postponed until Monday evening.
Coach Jose Mourinho as well as many Real Madrid players and management were scheduled to attend the wedding along with Chelsea stars Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard, John Mikel Obi and many others.
Ghanaian stars Stephen Appiah, Sulley Muntari and many African players in England like Emmanuel Adebayor were all billed to attend the wedding with some coming from as far as China and France.
Electricians tried and failed to repair the damage caused by what Rayo president Raul Martin Presa called “vandals” who had “cut the wiring” on some of the stadiums light towers.
While there was no light at the stadium, the darkness threw some light on the wedding plans of Essien who has also remained private about his private affairs.
The revelation of the secret wedding has also crashed the hopes of many girls in Ghana, Spain, England and France who were hoping to tie down the hottest bachelor in the world.
The identity of Essien’s to-be wife remains a top secret after some public falling out with two of his ex-girlfriends Nadia Buari and Dela Ackumey.
