Former Arsenal forward and current Tottenham Hotspur outcast Emmanuel Adebayor claims both of his brothers held a knife to his throat.
In a Facebook post posted earlier today, Adebayor wrote a long status regarding his family troubles in the past, specifically with his brothers, Kola and the late Peter. He describes how he must defend himself via social media, because what other family members are saying about him.
The major concern was the story that occurred a few years ago in which he woke up from a nap in his own apartment with both his brothers holding a knife to his throat. Only after saying that it was okay for them to kill him and take his money, did they retreat.
His brothers accused the forward of not providing enough for his family, while Adebayor claims he paid for multiple trips, a car for the mother, and allowed them to stay with him when times got tough.
The Togolese striker also admits to wanting to commit suicide after his family struggles and from holding in the stories for so long. Instead he stayed above the temptation and decided to post his stories for other people to learn from and relate to them.
This is the third installment of Adebayor’s Facebook posts in the last two weeks. The rest of the posts are on his Facebook page.
