Tottenham's Dele Alli Estranged Sister Begs Star To Heal Family Rift

The estranged big sister of England star Dele Alli has begged the footballer to heal the family rift, saying:
“We’re not after your money.”
Barbara Johnson wrote the impassioned plea to the Tottenham Hotspur player, who is understood to not have spoken to his family for years, saying they didn’t want his fame but simply wanted to see him again.

The 26-year-old’s mum heartbroken message comes after Dele’s parents Denise and Kehinde opened up about their despair at being cut out of their firstborn son’s life.

Barbara, who runs a social media fan page solely dedicated to her 20-year-old brother, shared a link to her parents’ public appeal, writing:
“What a heartbreaking story, hope you read this bro.” She added:

“We all miss you and love you dearly, we not after your money or your fame we just want are (sic) little #Delbot back, love you lots like jelly tots”.
The fan page, run by Deles sister Barbara, often shares photographs of the pair growing up together

The message was accompanied with smiley faces and dozens of ‘x’ kisses.

It’s not the first time that the woman has directly messaged the Spurs star, having set up the Instagram account to praise Alli despite not having seen him for more than two years.

Sharing a photograph of Dele on the social media account, she said:
“Wow it’s been 2years since this picture was taking (sic) and 2years since I ain’t seen my baby brother. 

 “I think about you every day bro”.
Sharing photographs of her growing up with Dele to her more than 1,000 followers, she wrote that she would always “cherish” the memories she had with her brother.

Speaking earlier this week, his mother Denise said she is 'miserable' at not having a part in his life, while his father Kehinde, who is himself a multimillionaire entrepreneur originally from Nigeria, said he even paid for a stadium tour at Tottenham's White Hart Lane in his efforts to see him.
Remembering the day he left, his mother Denise told the Sunday Mirror: "He was in great spirits and said, ‘I love you mum’. I had no idea that would be the last time I would see him. It still leaves me shocked.”

Since then, Dele has stopped wearing Alli on the back of his shirt – and has also reportedly moved house and changed his phone number.
His father Kehinde told the Sunday Mirror: “Not being able to see or speak to him hurts a lot.

“He lived with me for years and I have always been there for him both emotionally and financially.”

Denise added: “I waited outside after a match and when Dele came out I quietly said to him. ‘Dele… it’s me… your mum’.

“He didn’t stop. He just looked at me, said he was busy and drove off. I was in tears, it was heartbreaking.”

Dele was born in April 1996, and lived in Milton Keynes before moving to Lagos, Nigeria at the age of eight with his father.

In Lagos, Dele – a prince of the Nigerian Yoruba tribe – attended a £20,000-a-year international school, before moving to a mansion in Houston, Texas with Kehinde.

He then returned to Milton Keynes pursue his football career when he was 11, and began training with Milton Keynes Dons at around 13.

But when he signed for the club at 16, his parents say they were not invited – and as time went on he is said to have become increasingly distant.

Kehinde said: “I know some people will think we just want him for his money, but it couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m very wealthy in my own right and I don’t need a penny from Dele.

“I just want to be here for him and for him to know that I love him.”

Denise added: “Every night I say a prayer asking for God to bring him back to us. I dream about him coming home.”
