Bayern Munich midfielder James Rodriguez has split from his wife after six years of marriage, amid claims of an affair with a model.
It has been confirmed Rodriguez, on loan from Real Madrid, has parted with Daniela Ospina, sister of Arsenal goalkeeper David.
This comes amid reports in Colombia and Spain that Rodriguez has been involved in a love triangle with model Helga Lovekaty.
Marca report that an affair with Lovekaty is the reason for the end of the footballer’s marriage to the mother of his only child.
A statement from Ospina’s manager confirmed the pair, who have a daughter together, had made the decision amicably.
The message, shared on social media, said: ‘Daniela Ospina and James Rodriguez, parents to Salome Rodriguez Ospina, are making official their separation after six and half years of marriage.
‘It is done in the best possible terms and it is a mutual decision. They’ll maintain a relationship of love and of respect, always with Salome’s well being at heart.’
The couple, both Colombian, had married when they were teenagers, with Rodriguez aged 19 and Ospina just 18.
The separation comes just after Rodriguez moved to Munich on a two-year loan, having struggled for game time at Real.
