- Diego Maradona died on November 25 at his home in the Argentina capital of Buenos Aires
- Latest reports have it that exes of the legend are currently battling over his fortune
- He reportedly had less than £75,000 in his bank accounts as journalist Ventura earlier disclosed
It seems the death of legendary Diego Maradona has plunged his exes into crisis as reports from Argentina claim his former lovers are battling over his wealth.
The 1986 World Cup hero had huge endorsements with Puma and also got £15million annually for being president of Dynamo Brest in Belarus and his coaching spells in the Middle East.
Maradona who died on November 25, 2020 reportedly had less than £75,000 in his bank accounts as Argentine journalist Ventura earlier disclosed.
However he is said to have properties in Argentina as well as other parts of the world, but reports claim his ex-lover Rocio Oliva, 30 has gone on posthumous splurge according to the lawyer of another of his exes, Veronica Ojeda.
A source close to Mario Baudry said via SunSport:
“Spending was found on a credit card Rocio had in the days after Maradona died. We’re talking about very high expenditure by Rocio.
“The suspicion is she took advantage of the situation and spent on the card until it was cancelled.”
Veronica, 43, mother of one of Diego’s children, also lashed out at Rocio in a TV outburst.
She said when she and Maradona split in 2013: “I returned three million dollars to Diego. In contrast to Oliva, who kept everything, I returned everything.”
Maradona was married to his first and only wife, Claudia Villafané, who he wed in Buenos Aires, with the pair said to have met when Claudia was just 17.
The couple was married for more than 20 years but divorced in 2004 under unclear circumstances. Despite the divorce, the two remained in good terms and often went on trips together.
