Sharon Escobar Is The Second Wife Of Enner Valencia 

Enner Valencia and his wife, Sharon Escobar, have a fascinating love story.

Escobar is the second wife of Valencia. Before her, the striker was married to Cynthia Pinargote and is also fathering a young daughter. 

In 2016, Valencia's divorce caused big headlines in Ecuador. The then-Everton striker was pursued because of a disagreement over alimony payments to Sinthyia Pinargote.

A warrant for his arrest was issued in Ecuador in October, stating unpaid child support. In August 2020, an armed gang kept Valencia's sister Eric captive in San Lorenzo for 10 days before releasing her unharmed.

 Valencia stated that the issue was far from settled. He claimed that Pinargote was pursuing several legal actions against him "that are intended for her profit," including a demand for alimony payments at a set value of $30,000 per month for child support.

The player said, "a total of almost $100,000 was made in alimony payments in the last two years, which can be verified on the judiciary's website." Furthermore, Pinargote denies him permission to visit and see his daughter whenever he travels to Ecuador.

In addition, Valencia asserted that the $4,820 monthly payments he made "were destined for the personal expenditure" of his ex-wife. He claimed that she had ostensibly acknowledged during the court proceeding and that the payments had been suspended "after it was proven that the child was the victim of physical and psychological abuse" by Pinargote.

Nevertheless, the divorce did not end well for the Ecuadorian football star. But Valencia eventually met his current wife, Sharon Escobar.

Details On Enner Valencia Family Members

Enner Valencia was born in Esmeraldas, Ecuador, on November 4, 1989. The 5 foot 10-inch tall striker has a mixed origin. He is the son of Bolivia Lastra and Remberto Valencia. The forward also has two sisters, Erci Valencia Lastra and Ericka Valencia.

Enner Valencia is unrelated to former Manchester United winger Antonio or Eder Valencia. 

However, Valencia is of Afro-Ecuadorian heritage and is from the province of Esmeraldas. Coming from a low-income family, he was forced to reside in basic accommodations at the club's Estadio George Capwell when he first joined Emelec.

Even though his mother's last name is Bolivia, she is not from the South American nation. Instead, Bolivia Lastra is an Ecuadorian native of African origin, just like her spouse Renberto Valencia Sols.

The Ecuadorian boy grew up helping his father sell cow milk on San Lorenzo's streets. Enner needed more money to pay his rent even after he started playing competitive football. That led him to request the club's assistance in finding a place to lay his head and sleep.

As mentioned in the Daily Mail, Erci was kidnapped in the Ecuadorian city of Quito on August 17, 2022.

A group of men in armor had raided her house and taken her hostage. Fortunately, she was discovered in the jungle near San Lorenzo.

During a press conference, the head of the National Police's confirmed that the alleged ransom demand was for 2 million USD (£1.5 million). They had conducted a ten-day investigation to discover Erci Valencia Lastra. 

After a comprehensive investigation, six alleged kidnappers were identified and all taken into custody. The kidnappers of Enner Valencia's sisters are Edwin C., Dugelio T., Jose C., and Edwin M., three people of Colombian nationality.

The footballer lacked the funds to pay for his lodging elsewhere and frequently struggled to afford food. However, his condition slowly changed as he showcased talent on the football pitch. 

Valencia reportedly earns 1,760,000 Euros manually playing for the Turkish side. Under his contribution, Fenarbache was runner-up in the first-division league and is playing Champions League this season. While in the current season, the club is at the top of the company.

Valencia made his debut for his country in 2012, and he was a prominent figure at the 2014 World Cup.

Valencia made an impression with his lightning-quick footwork and three goals in three group games, but it wasn't enough, as the South American team lost.
