Senegal international and Newcastle United footballer Papiss Cisse has left his on-off girlfriend to marry Senegalese volleyball player Diallo Awa.
Rachelle Graham, a former Miss Newcastle and Miss England finalist claims she waved off footballer Papiss Cisse on a holiday last week. The player however failed to reply her texts after leaving.
The beauty queen went online to check up on Cisse only to find wedding photos of the Newcastle United player with 29-year-old new partner Diallo Awa.
Miss Graham, who was devastated by the news told The Sun:
‘I’m hurt and disgusted to learn Papiss has got married without me knowing after we spent so much time together recently.
‘But it’s his life and if this is what he has chosen to do there is nothing much I can do about it. I just wish he had the decency to tell me first.’
Agent of Papiss Cisse was not available for comments on the story but a friend of Cisse claims the footballer had not been in a romantic relationship with the Miss Rachelle Graham since they split last year.
‘Papiss was not seeing that girl, despite what she says. They may have met socially on occasion since their split but they were not in a romantic relationship together anymore and haven’t been for some time.’
The beauty queen who was targeted on social media after news of her relationship with Cisse became public two years ago once again responded to twitter trolls claiming she did not date the Senegal international for his money.
Miss Graham tweeted:
‘Yes I am upset and hurt as we were very close and I trusted him all these years. I had a good life before I met Papiss and I intend to get that good life back!
‘Contrary to what a lot of you think I have never needed his money – I have my own thank you – and I did not date him because of his job and fame.
‘I dated him for the same reason most people date someone and anyone who knows me and Papiss will tell you that!
‘Now it’s time for me to move on with my life and he will do the same. Everything happens for a reason.’
Papiss Cisse married Diallo Awa at a yacht club in Paris. The couple are believed to be in Senegal.
