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.

More photos of the smiling couple’s wedding in Paris have since surfaced, with friends saying they suspect his religion and family prevented the two from having a future together.

They had broken up last year after trolls abused them because it was a mixed race relationship – but Miss Graham claimed recently they had started seeing each other more regularly again.

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.’

Last night a friend of Cisse said the footballer had not been in a relationship with Miss Graham since the pair split last year.

He said: ‘Papiss was not seeing that girl, despite what she says. They may have met socially on occasion since their split but they were not in a romantic relationship together anymore and haven’t been for some time.’

His agent Madou Diene was not available for comment last night.

Miss Graham received horrific abuse after news of her relationship with Cisse became public in 2013 and it was reported to police.

Today it appears that she has been targeted again and said that she dated the footballer because she loved him, not for his money.

She even did a charity skydive to raise money for a community ambulance in the striker’s native Senegal.

Rachelle posted this message on twitter:
“Yes I am upset and hurt as we were very close and I trusted him all these years. I had a good life before I met Papiss and I intend to get that good life back! Contrary to what a lot of you think I have never needed his money – I have my own thank you – and I did not date him because of his job and fame. I dated him for the same reason most people date someone and anyone who knows me and Papiss will tell you that! Now it’s time for me to move on with my life and he will do the same. Everything happens for a reason. Now it’s time for me to move on with my life, and he will do the same. Everything happens for a reason! #Don’t judge”

It is rumored that Papiss had another girlfriend by the name of Natalie Gibson. Friends of Papiss say that Heather was not dating Papiss recently, “Rachelle 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.”

    If she was his girlfriend, he could have at least broke up with her first, forget telling her he was going to get married! This is an episode of Footballers Wives!
