Former Citizen TV host Joey Muthengi has been entertaining Kenyans a lot lately who have been claiming she’s in a relationship with footballer McDonald Mariga.
She recently even shared that she plans to move to Italy to stay with Mariga after she resigned from Citizen TV.
“Mariga is a cool person and he and I are real friends. I am very fond of him. I will be moving to Italy in January and I guess time will tell what next,” she said when asked if they were an item.
Stop the jokes
Well, as much as Joey enjoys being called Mariga’s new girlfriend, Mariga’s relatives are not happy with her theatrics.
A family member of the football star has come out to vehemently deny that Joey Muthengi is in a relationship with the football darling and suggested she’s keeps off the rumours.
“I’m not sure why Joey has been lying to Kenyans and her fans,” said McDonald Mariga’s family member.
The family member went on to add that Mariga has a wife and that’s why he hasn’t entertained the jokes like Muthengi has been doing.
“I can CATEGORICALLY state that they are NOT dating. He is a married guy! Have you noticed he has not said anything or commented on the story only Joey feeding lies to stay relevant after being fired. The guy would have claimed her by now,” the source added.
