Manchester United forward Anthony Martial and his wife Samantha Martial have officially parted ways after weeks of speculation.
Reports suggest that 19-year-old Samantha was unhappy after Anthony Martial’s affair with 2013 Miss Great Britain finalist Emily Wademan.
The 20-year-old French national had seduced Ms Wademan through Snapchat and even paid for her flight to Paris.
Samantha and Anthony have both unfollowed each other on Instagram; however, she continues to post photos of their eight-month-old daughter Peyton.
Samantha was a staunch public devotee of the footballer, with plenty of pictures posted on social media of her with the Red Devils star.
Samantha has now changed her name from samanthan_martial_ to samantha_helena_ on social media.
Throughout the marriage upheaval, Anthony remained composed and wore a brave face before his peers.
A source told tensports.com: “Martial kept his marriage problems quiet in the dressing room, but it was known that Samantha was homesick.”
“She was always flying to France to spend time with her family so it’s not that surprising she’s gone back permanently.”
Anthony Martial’s agent confirmed their separation and said no one else was involved.
