Cheick Tiote defends decision to have two wives AND a mistress
The 28-year-old Newcastle United midfielder, who earns £45,000 a week, reportedly wed Laeticia Doukrou despite already being married to first wife Madah, 25 (pictured together left).
Tiote lives with Madah in a £1.5million mansion in Ponteland, a village near Newcastle, with their two children. He also has a one-year-old child with mistress Nikki Mpofu (right), who was reportedly furious when she discovered he had married for a second time. Tieto (pictured inset playing against Stoke City last night) has defended his lifestyle by claiming it is ‘nothing unusual’. The footballer, who can have four wives under Islamic law, is said to have insisted to friends that having several partners is commonplace in his native Ivory Coast.
