In 2023-24, Karim Adeyemi cleared rapper partner Loredana of blame for his subpar performance at Borussia Dortmund.
Since the summer of 2023, the German international forward has been in a relationship with Albanian music star Loredana. They were initially seen together in July of that year. Adeyemi’s on-field performance has declined since then, and he understands that being in the public eye with a renowned girlfriend will inevitably result in questions about his focus.
Adeyami believes it’s not her fault that he has declined over the current season. He told club’s official YouTube channel : “I knew what I was getting myself into, that she was a person in the public eye, but I found it crazy that people react like that after a bad game. Not unfair against me because I didn’t play well. It’s unfair to my girlfriend. It has nothing to do with how I play and perform on the pitch. Sometimes I find it strange how some people take the liberty of judging people they don’t know.”
Having started only three Bundesliga games for Dortmund this season and having been absent from play since December 13 due to injury, Adeyemi acknowledged his challenges, stating: “It wasn’t a good first half of the season. I’m not happy with myself.”
In the 2023-24 season, Dortmund’s addition of Jadon Sancho increases challenges for Adeyemi in leaving his mark. The English international has returned to Signal Iduna Park on loan from Manchester United.
