In what is proving to be the messiest divorce since Triple H pedigreed Stephanie McMahon during the renewal of their wedding vows on Monday Night Raw, back in 2002, Anthony Martial and his ex-wife Samantha Jacquelinet are firing shots at each other over social media.

Martial and Jacquelinet's marriage broke down shortly after the Frenchman's £36m move to Manchester United, last Summer, with Jacquelinet telling The Sun "Everything changed. Footballers in England are like kings. They have so much money and attention it's like they live in a different world. He was thrust into the limelight and it all just exploded. Young girls were throwing themselves at him."

Martial allegedly had an affair with X-Factor contestant Emily Wademan and in the aftermath of their seperation, Samantha blasted the 20-year-old's new girlfriend, Melanie Da Cruz, labelling her a 'prostitute' during a furious Instagram rant.

The former Monaco striker, clearly fed up with the column inches Jacquelinet has received, fired a shot back at her following United's opening day 3-1 victory over Bournemouth, this afternoon.


Hopefully the pair can come to a peaceful resolution, unlike the aforementioned Triple H and Stephanie although, if Jacquelinet suddenly aligns herself with Chris Jericho, who challenges Martial to a match at WrestleMania, we wouldn't be against seeing it happen.
