The disciplinary proceedings come as Rami’s battle with his ex-girlfriend Pamela Anderson is in full swing.
Rabat – French club Olympique de Marseille has announced that it has begun disciplinary proceedings against French-Moroccan player Adil Rami, following a no show on Monday, July 1 for the first training session after the summer break.
In a statement to Associated Press, the French club explained that “Rami, a member of the France squad that won the World Cup last year, will meet with club officials to discuss the matter.”
The disciplinary proceedings come just as Rami is embroiled in a battle of words with his ex-girlfriend Pamela Anderson, who he began dating in 2017. The couple reportedly split in September 2018 before getting back together in March of this year and splitting up again recently.
The American actress, known for her starring role in the 90s show Baywatch, publically accused Rami of abuse and infidelity on her Instagram page and official website. “The last 2 years of my life have been a big lie. I was scammed, led to believe we were in big love. I’m devastated to find out in the last few days that he was living a double life,” her Instagram post read.
“He used to joke about other players who had girlfriends down the street in apartments close to their wives. He called those men monsters, but this is worse. He lied to all. How is it possible to control 2 women’s hearts and minds like this – and I’m sure there were others. He is a monster,” Anderson claimed.
Rami, in turn, responded to deny the claims. In a lengthy message on his own Instagram account, the football player responded to the allegations. “I wish to tell you that these accusations of violence are completely false and I can’t let them run,” he wrote.
According to Rami, the only reason he “kept silent” until now is that he “was shocked” by the allegations and worried he wouldn’t be able to “speak without every word being interpreted.’”
“It’s one thing to lie to keep a good relationship with her ex and her children but lying about violence in order to hurt me that’s going too far and it’s unjust,” he claimed.
He concluded by denying Anderson’s claims of violence. “Once again, I won’t allow these false accusations on me and my family to remain unanswered. All of this is too bad.”
For their part, Olympique de Marseille insists the disciplinary actions have nothing to with the player’s “private problems.”
