Chelsea superstar taken to court by ex lover, could be sent to 6 months in jail


Belgium international Michy Batshuayi who plays for Chelsea has been dragged to court by his ex girlfriend Gitte Van Der Elst for an alleged failure to pay for child maintenance. After he decided to leave Van Elst, Chelsea star Michy Batshuayi was ordered to be paying monthly sum for maintenance and for the care of his two-year-old daughter. But according to the report on UK Sun, Michy Batshuayi has been accused of missing two of £2,067 and being late with several others. His ex Gitte Elst was said to have reported the situation last week where hearing was given on the reported issue. According to the Belgian law, family abandonment and failure to pay for maintenance is punishable by up to six months in jail with fine. The player’s lawyer Monville said payments were now up to date and blamed his representatives for the missed contributions. Meanwhile, the case has been adjourned by Judge Suzy Vanhoonacker until February in which her verdict could get Batshuayi acquitted.
