Argentine football legend Diego Armando Maradona has reportedly ditched his longtime girlfriend Veronica Ojeda after news she became pregnant.
Argentine football legend Diego Armando Maradona is now in India, where he has been seen dancing with the famous Indian TV celebrity Ranjini Haridas. He is now celebrating 15 years since his last professional soccer game. So his personal life would be of no interest if Maradona wasn’t such a famous international player, wasn’t living in Dubai alone… and had not abandoned his pregnant girlfriend back home in Argentina.
Maradona was married to former wife Claudia Villafane for a long time. They had two daughters, Dalma and Giannina, who the ex-soccer player claims are his only children—only he has two more kids and one on the way.
Diego Maradona Junior
Diego Maradona Junior was born in 1986 in Naples, Italy, a year before Maradona’s first child with Villafane was born. Diego Junior’s mother is Cristiana Sinagra. Maradona gave the child his last name and recognized him as his own, but refused to have a relationship with the boy. They have met now and then, but Diego Junior has always missed his real dad (though he’s very proud of being a Maradona).
Maradona has another daughter, Jana Maradona, age 16. She is the daughter from his relationship with Valeria Sabalain, which he carried on while still married to Claudia Villafane. Jana was born in 1996 and her mother had a long fight to get her baby’s rights. Finally she got it and a judge ordered Maradona to give his daughter his last name after he had refused three times in a row to take a DNA test.
Maradona’s girlfriend Veronica Ojeda pregnant
Diego Maradona and Claudia Villafane divorced in 2003. He has been in a serious relationship with Veronica Ojeda, much younger than him, for the last eight years. There is no such a thing as a healthy relationship between Veronica Ojeda and Maradona’s ex-wife and daughters with Villafane. They have said, especially daughter Dalma, that they do not like Ojeda at all, and claim that there was an agreement that Maradona would not extend his family by having yet more children.
Except now, Veronica Ojeda is five months pregnant and recently ditched by Maradona. Apparently this baby is the cause of the couple splitting up. Maradona didn’t want another child and he had expressed it, but Veronica Ojeda wanted a child and it is said that she quit her birth control without his knowledge.
So, a new baby is coming, a boy, but once more, this little Maradona is going to be shut out of Diego Maradona’s world. He refuses to give the child his name, and his daughters and ex-wife are calling for a DNA test in order to confirm Maradona’s paternity.
At stake with all Maradona’s exes and offspring is a fortune worth at least $6 million, several cars and properties. So far, according to the media, Veronica Ojeda will remain in Buenos Aires, in the large house that until recently she shared with Maradona. She will have to give back a Mini Cooper and a BMW to him. In addition, a lawyer will negotiate with her the entire negotiations related to the child support and personal possessions that her new son will receive. Still, Veronica Ojeda says she loves Maradona and always will.
Well, it is certainly is a mess, and all of Maradona’s own making. It has also been said that Maradona is being pressured by his “legitimate” children not to recognize his baby with Veronica Ojeda, and they’re threatening him with a lethal weapon: his grandson (Sergio“Kun” Aguero’s son). Apparently, if he accepts this new baby as his own, his daughter will keep him from seeing his grandson—whom he allegedly adores.
So there he is, trekking around India while his estranged girlfriend gets bigger and bigger with his latest baby. Maybe Maradona thinks it’s better not to come back to Argentina, too much of a headache. Let’s just hope he’s not abandoning an Indian baby too! Watch out!
