Midfielder Victor Wanyama has come out to dismiss claims after a Kenyan socialite Shakilla alleged that she was paid for a one night stand with the footballer.
The socialite, in an Instagram interview, said that she was paid by many Kenyan celebraties, including Wanyama, for sex.
The former Tottenham Midfielder, now at MLS side Montreal Impact, has refuted the claims.
“My attention has been drawn to a video circulating online containing false, fabricated and insulting allegations aimed at scandalising my good name and reputation,” Wanyama has said in a statement.
“I wish to distance myself completely from the contents of this defamatory video.
“The allegations made therein are a total fabrication and a figment of the maker’s imagination at best. I have NEVER met any party in the video.”
Wanyama has said that the allegations are false and insulting, and he is going to take a legal action against the Socialite.
“I am prepared to go to great lengths to protect my good name and character,” he added.
“Consequently, and with the blessing of my management team, I have instructed my legal team to pursue ALL legal remedies available to me and to which I have the unreserved right to seek.
“That is all I wish to state.”
