Breel Embolo Parents Divorced When He Was Little
Breel Embolo was raised by Christian parents, Germaine Embolo And Moise Kegni. They divorced when he was a little boy.
Born on Valentine's day on February 14, 1997, it's ironic his parents had to separate even after they had a baby on a day of love celebration. They divorced when he was barely five.
When he was five years old, his mother relocated to France to continue her education there. During her time there, she was fortunate enough to meet the man who would become her future husband; he was a Swiss citizen.
After his mother married the Swiss guy, the family moved to Basel and settled there. At age 17, on December 14, 2012, the Swiss forward got his Swiss citizenship and officially became a citizen of Switzerland.
Before moving to Switzerland with his mother, Embolo spent his early years in Cameroon. Yaounde is where Embolo and his brother spent their formative years together. He was the kind of youngster who was highly sociable, simple to get along with, and endowed with a wonderful personality even as a young child.
Before his parents started having problems in their marriage, Breel's father and mother ran a home in Cameroon, West Africa. They identify as Christians and belong to the middle class. Breel was raised in a highly devout household, and his father would take him to church on weekends.
After the divorce, his mother, Germaine, decided to bear custody of their children, and her ex-husband offered financial support from far away.
