Super Eagles forward Henry Onyekuru has been accused of failing to pay the sum of €11,000 to his former partner, Melissa Krott, being a child support for their daughter.
Krott, the alleged mother of the child, was quoted by German newspaper Bild as saying: “I met him (Onyekuru) via Instagram. I thought he was great. At some point we wrote, met.
“When he found out that I was pregnant, he did not want the child. Speech was no longer possible. He closed me off everywhere.”
The daily, Bild further claims that Onyekuru has accepted the paternity, but still hasn’t paid up.
Krott further alleged: “Right after the breakup, he already had a new girlfriend… with whom he also has a child, a little boy.”
Efforts to reach Onyekuru who has been called up to replace the injured Odion Ighalo for Nigeria’s game against South Africa in Johannesburg on the 17th of November proved abortive.
Onyekuru has scored three goals in nine top-flight outings for Turkish giants Galatasaray this season, but has fired blanks in his last six games across all competitions.
The 21 year old is currently on loan at Galatasaray from Everton. He joined the English Premier League side for £7 million in 2017 from Belgian outfit Eupen.
