Yesterday Pappis Cisse made the news after it was revealed he got married in Paris whilst still having a girlfriend here in the UK.
However, a close friend of the Senegalese international told the Mirror newspaper,
Rachelle is not his girlfriend and they have not been in a proper relationship for a long time. They were not a couple, and that is why he did not tell her he was getting married.
Back in August 2013, Cisse revealed that he had ended his relationship with Rachelle Graham to concentrate on his football career, as Newcastle had struggled in the opening stages of the Premier League campaign.
Reports suggest that Cisse and the former Miss Newcastle beauty queen were in a relationship off-and-on for a couple of years, so it is unclear whether or not they had been an item since August 2013.
If it is true that they had indeed not been together recently, it would be understandable if the Newcastle star didn’t want to tell his ex about his wedding plans. But then questions would be asked as to why she was so shocked at the discovery.
She told the Sun newspaper,
I’m hurt and disgusted to learn Papiss has got married without me knowing.
I just wish he’d had the decency to tell me first.
Rachelle claims that she found out about Cisse’s wedding after seeing photos of him following the ceremony in Paris.
She said she waved him off at the airport last week, believing that he was going back to his homeland for a one month break following the end of the Premier League season. However, she become concerned when he stopped returning her texts and she went online to discover a photo of him at his wedding.
