A 30-year old Giannina Maradona made the cryptic comments on social media – and while not directly naming who they were about – most concluded they concerned her father as she begged fans to “pray for him”.
The Argentina legend, though, responded in a video of his own on social media to deny he is dying from sedatives.
He said: “What I do know is that as you get older, people worry more about what you’re going to leave than what you’re doing.
“I tell you all that I’m not going to leave anything, that I am going to donate it. I’m not going to give away everything I earned by running during my life, I’m going to donate it. Maradona posted a video on his Instagram page, insisting he was “not dying” from the irreversible brain disorder and branding the people behind the rumors:
Giannina, one of the Argentinian’s two grown-up daughters by ex-wife Claudia Villafane, posted in the wake of Maradona’s 59th birthday last Wednesday and left most observers in little doubt she was pointing the finger at her father.
She said in an Instagram story: “He’s not dying because his body decides but they are killing him inside without him realizing it.
Giannina, who formerly dated Sergio Aguero and has a son with the Man City striker.
