After 12 years and three kids together, Didier Drogba married Lalla Diakite in a private ceremony in Monaco on Saturday. Of course, footballer weddings aren't usually things we cover at Dirty Tackle, but for this one we have to make an exception. Read this section from GhanaSoccernet's story on the nuptials and see if any nuggets of information stand out:
The ceremony was officiated by club owner Roman Abramovich, with team-mates Salomon Kalou and Florent Malouda among the groom's men.
RnB superstar Akon and a host of stars from NBA were also said to be included on the list of guests for the event.
There must be some confusion here, right? I could see Abramovich hosting the even at some lavish property he owns or even paying for it, but officiating the ceremony? Does that mean he actually married them? It can't. When you have more than four yachts does that grant you the ability to marry people? Or do all football club owners have the ability to marry off their players?
Didier needs to make the video of this available to the public. We need to see this.
