Belgian footballer Jelle Van Damme has been accused of stalking his ex-wife Elke Clijsters.

The couple had tied the knot back in 2008. They had their first child, a baby boy, born in 2009 before welcoming a baby girl in 2010. They, however, parted ways in 2014 before divorcing a couple of years after.

And now, Elke, a former tennis player and sister of ex-world No 1 Kim Clijsters, has claimed Damme has been harassing her on social media besides stalking her through bedroom window.

“I’ve had to cope with a stalker for almost three years,” the 33-year-old wrote on Instagram.

“I thought about deleting my profile, but felt that he would have won had I done so.

“He created anonymous profiles, sent me messages, lied about me and told other people what a terrible person I am.

“He would sit in his car outside my house at night to see what I was up to, and who I brought home.

“He’d sneak into my back garden to peer through my bedroom window, and would ask my friends about me.

“He sent me messages saying my late father would be ashamed if he could see me, and a whole lot more

“This has had a great emotional impact on me. I kept quiet for a long time and tried to cope with it

“I was sad and frightened, but angry as well. I asked myself what had I done wrong.”

According to various media reports, Elke has lodged a legal complaint following the incident.

Damme, 35, currently plays for Royal Antwerp in Belgian First Division A league.
