Former Black Stars defender, John Paintsil, has finally reacted to rumors about dating Michelle Diamond, popularly known as Shatta Michy.
The footballer is disappointed with false online reports that Shatta Michy is having an affair with him.
Some of the reports indicate that the player had purchased her a house and a car after Shatta Wale allegedly kicked her out of his house.
In an interview with Franky 5 on Hitz FM‘s ‘This Is Gospel’, Mr Paintsil was appalled by the stories and asked bloggers to stop peddling falsehood about Shatta Michy.

“There is nothing going on between me and Shatta Michy. We don’t have that connection. Sometimes I feel so sorry about the way the media just go on and put something that they don’t have any clue about it, destroying homes…If you want to write something about them you have to show some respect,” the defender said.
Mr Paintsil asked bloggers to stop playing with the emotions of Ghanaians, especially because Shatta Michy is a mother.
He also denied claims that he bought a house and car for Shatta Michy.
Rumours of an affair between the two became widespread after a photo surfaced showing the two sitting next to each other at the F360 Ghana Football Awards in 2018.
The footballer also warned that such false stories could cost him the relationship with his new lover.
“Trying to wrap me around someone’s wife is not on….I have a woman in my life. You putting [out] that story could cause a lot of problems,” he bemoaned.
Mr Paintsil also revealed on ‘This Is Gospel’ that his new lover helps him immensely with his spiritual growth as a Christian and he is ready to tie the knot with her.
The former Black Stars defender said that his marriage to the mother of his four children, Richlove, ended in 2013 after she filed for divorce.
