Who is David's ex-wife?

David was previously married to model Coraline Delphin. The couple tied the knot in 1991, and enjoyed 25 year together before splitting in 2016.

Coraline and David enjoyed a lavish life together, residing near St Tropez in a luxury family home. They share two children together, Carla and Andrea.

Carla, 27, is a model and influencer, while Andrea followed in his famous dad's footsteps and works as a football agent.

David and Coraline's marriage was rocked by several claims of infidelity over the years, and most notably, David was accused of having a four-month long affair with a woman named Joelle Pinquier.

The alleged affair is believed to have taken place between 1991 and 1992, and Joelle claims David is the father of her 29 year old daughter, Joy, which the footballer has always denied.

It was also claimed that in 2015 when David suffered a heart attack, alleged lovechild Joy was turned away from the hospital when she attempted to visit the star.


In 2016, Coraline filed for divorce, with reports claiming that the continuous rumours of affairs had destroyed their marriage.

It took two years for the former couple to reach a settlement, but they are said to be on civil terms now and continue to talk to one another for the sake of their two children.

David has since moved on with french model Maeva Denat, who is 22 years his junior. Maeva, 27, is a model and actress who hails from the south of France.

She and David are said to have met in 2016, having gone public with their romance after his heart attack. In 2018, the couple welcomed their first child together.

David and Maeva live together in France with their baby daughter, and tend to keep their family life out of the limelight.

However, the star's son Andrea has previously addressed his father's relationship. He told the Mail Online: “I doubt it will last. She just happened to be in the right place at the right time.

“The question I keep asking myself is if my dad were a baker living in the North of France and earning 1,500 euros a month would she still want to be with him?

"She is not the next Angelina Jolie. I want my dad to find someone who has goals in life.”

I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! airs every evening at 9pm on ITV.
