Newcastle star Papiss Cisse leaves British girlfriend for holiday then marry Senegalese fiancée in Paris three days later

Newcastle footballer Papiss Cisse has left his on-off girlfriend heartbroken after telling her he was going on holiday only to marry a volleyball player three days later.

Rachelle Graham, 24, a beauty queen and former Miss Newcastle, says last week she said goodbye to the Senegalese striker, 30, believing he was off to spend a month in his homeland.

But after he failed to return her texts she became worried and went online, finding a picture of her love's wedding to sportswoman Diallo Awa, 29, at a yacht club outside Paris.
Miss Graham told The Sun: 'I'm hurt and disgusted to learn Papiss has got married without me knowing after we spent so much time together recently.

'But it's his life and if this is what he has chosen to do there is nothing much I can do about it. I just wish he had the decency to tell me first.'
According to the Daily Mirror a source close to the player said that he and Miss Graham were not a couple and not dating while he was with his now wife.
The friend said: 'Michelle is not his girlfriend and they have not been in a proper relationship for a long time. They were not a couple, and that is why he did not tell her he was getting married.'
Cisse's new wife is a Senegalese volleyball star and model who represents her national team and Stade Francais in Paris, where she lives.
