LONDON, September 13- Manchester City footballer Yaya Toure has allegedly fathered a two-year-old secret love child – and the mother claims he won’t pay support unless she sends him sexy selfies.

The married player, 32, is accused of cheating on his wife of 12 years, Gineba, during a four-month affair with his ex-girlfriend, Mariam Camara, 31, whom he first met when they were both teenagers in the Ivory Coast.

But Ms Camara claims he left her when she became pregnant and has now accused him of refusing to pay child support because she would not send him naked pictures.

Ivory Coast captain Toure, who is a practising Muslim and father-of-three, earns £230,000-a-week as a midfielder.

The Sun reports he refuses to see or pay for their son, who he has only met twice.

Ms Camara, who lives in Paris with the two-year-old boy, said he would never send her the support money without conditions.

She said: “I would have to give him something, like naked photos or photos of my bum. And if I didn’t send the photos we wouldn’t get the money.”

She said they initially met up in 2011 when Toure called her up out of the blue while she was working in a shop in Paris, just after he moved from Barcelona to Manchester City for £24million.

The reunited and soon began sleeping together and in June 2012 she told him she was pregnant, but said he did not care and refused to believe the child was his.

She claims he only agreed to start paying maintenance after a paternity test showed there was a 99.99 per cent chance the child was his.

The Premier League player has until now had a relatively squeaky clean image when it comes to the ladies and has previously claimed he ‘hides’ from ’embarrassing’ female fans who want to sleep with him.

In an interview with an Ivorian magazine in January, the footballer said: “Sometimes I wonder what’s going through girls’ heads. It’s embarrassing.

“There was one who openly courted me. It was really shocking! She asked for my phone number and I gave her a wrong number in order to get away from her.

“I escape from them. I’m married. My wife is enough for me. I like peace and that’s my way of living.”

Ms Camara added she was ‘horrified’ when Toure asked her to send the racy pictures, but initially complied because she wanted to provide for her son.

She told The Sun: “It was manipulative. He knew that without him we’ll struggle, so he can ask for these things…

“I want him to take responsibility. It’s not about money. He needs to see his son. But he won’t even respond to my messages.”

In May Toure was allegedly stopped by police speeding at 124mph before telling officers the club would sort it out.

The Premier League footballer was pulled over while driving his £120,000 Porsche 911 on the M6.

MailOnline has contacted a spokesman for Toure for a comment.
