Sunderland’s Michael Chopra gets dumped on Facebook

Rocky marriage + WAG with computer + hubby miles away on loan = D.I.V.O.R.C.E.

Sunderland striker Michael Chopra found out his marriage was over via Facebook. The 25-year-old’s wife, Heather Swann, changed her relationship status on the social networking site to single to signal that their eight-month marriage was over.

Chopra was not going to stand for this and immediately hit back the only way he could – cancelling Heather’s mobile phone contract. This prompted the WAG to write on her own Facebook: “Heather will have a new number tomorrow, ha ha.”

The couple have endured a pretty unsettled marriage life, separating for the first time just four weeks after their wedding, dealing with Chopra’s gambling addiction, and reportedly at the verge of splitting since Chopra’s loan move to Cardiff City (there is no indication as to whether the Bluebirds will be named as a third-party in any divorce papers!).
