Chopra dumped by wife on Facebook
Friday 13 February 2009
Sunderland striker Michael Chopra has been unceremoniously dumped by his wife on Facebook, according to reports.
Chopra's wife of seven months, Heather Swan, is said to have let her husband, who is currently on loan at Cardiff City, know their marriage was over by changing her status to single on the social networking site.
Chopra has responded to his wife's actions by updating his own Facebook page with the words ‘Heather will have a new number tomorrow, ha ha,’ after cancelling her mobile phone contract.
‘Things have been simmering ever since Michael went on loan to Cardiff. It's all pretty childish,’ a source is quoted as telling the Daily Mirror.
Chopra and Swan, who have a one-year-old son together, first separated just four weeks after their marriage.
And why are 'southern' ways of speaking spreading north?
