N’Golo Kante’s Wife: Who Is Jude Littler?

Born in 1991, N’Golo Kante is a famous French footballer who currently plays for the French team as well as Premier League Club Chelsea. Kanté is lauded for his tireless effort on the pitch and his defensive prowess, two of the primary reasons he is usually regarded as one of the best French players of all time.

He is a humble guy and is usually very secretive about his private life. He made a name for himself after delivering exceptional performances on the pitch. But, his life took a romantic turn when he got married to her wife, Jude Littler.

Who is Jude Littler?

Born on November 30th, 1975, in Anglesey, UK, Jude Littler is a British citizen. Jude had a very happy and fulfilling upbringing. Since she was a little child, her parents have showered her much love and attention.

Information on Jude’s parents is currently unavailable. It is also unknown if she has any brothers or sisters or other family members such as relatives. It is mainly because she seeks to keep her personal life out of the limelight and public scrutiny. You will never see her talk about family in front of the camera or make public appearances with them.

Though it is not confirmed, Jude appears to be an extremely well-educated and qualified individual. She attended and graduated from the community college close to her childhood home, where she received her higher education. After that, she continued her study by enrolling in a college where she received her degree. 

Though she is an average-sized woman, she still looks stunning with those dark brown eyes. She comes from a white racial background but still managed to enchant N’Golo Kante, who has a black ethnic background and Malian ancestry on his parent’s side.

It is presently uncertain when exactly N’Golo Kante and his bride, Jude Littler, met one other. The pair has maintained a strict policy of confidentiality regarding their personal life. Kante, a player with a reputation for being somewhat elusive, has never disclosed to the public the date or location of his wedding to Jude Littler.

Jude Littler Professional Career

Nothing much is known regarding what exactly she does for a living, but she is a successful businesswoman. Like Kante, she came from a humble background and started as a hairdresser but then made a name for herself in the industry.

She is certainly a kind and caring spouse who provides Kante with emotional and mental support, despite the fact that she is an extremely reserved person who only occasionally appears in public. As they say, a lady is hiding in the shadows of every successful man, and it seems apt in the case of Jude and Kante.

She only witnessed some serious limelight when she agreed to swap lives with a “poor family” for a TV experiment on swap TV series. In the series, Jude, a business visionary from Cheshire, decided to visit a camping park in Devon rather than go on one of her normal extravagant vacations overseas.

She managed a property portfolio worth £6 million. Still, for the experimental television show “Rich Holiday, Poor Holiday” broadcasted on Channel 5, she took her three children on holiday on a budget.

On the other hand, a group of eight people from Peckham living in a shared house and making do with a weekly income of 450 pounds got a chance to stay at Jude’s extravagant estate in Marrakesh, Morocco. The property was already fully staffed with maids, butlers, and chefs. During their stay there, they could take advantage of all of the amenities that Jude’s property had to offer.

Besides this occasion, she did not do much to stay in the limelight. The road to fame and stardom is long and arduous for those who do not work in the entertainment business, but Littler made it look simple and achieved everything the moment she met her ex-husband.

Who is Jude Littler Ex-Husband?

Before marrying Kante, she was with the renowned French footballer, Djibril Cisse, who began his career 1989 with AC Arles when he was eight. He spent half a year with Nimes Olympique before switching to AJ Auxerre and becoming a member of the club’s youth academy there. For 17 years and ten teams, including Panathinaikos, Liverpool, and Auxerre, he made more than 600 games in all.

After suffering a horrific leg break in October 2004, Cisse was told he would miss the rest of the season. However, he made a remarkable return after only eight months out of action. He hit a penalty shot in the shootout, which made his victory in the Champions League all the more satisfying.

On the international level, he played for the France senior team 41 times and was a member of the team that won the FIFA Confederations Cup in 2003. In addition, he was a member of the France youth national team.

After a successful career in professional football, Cisse transitioned into a new job as a DJ and producer after hanging up his cleats. In 2016, he served as a warm-up DJ for Mariah Carey’s event in Paris. In addition, he was the proprietor of the Mr. Lenoir apparel line, which is no longer in business.

How Cisse met Littler is unknown, but they tied the knot on 18th Dec 2004. For their nuptials, they chose the Bodelwyddan Castle Hotel, Denbighshire, as their wedding venue. The relationship did not last long, and in 2012, they divorced, ending their marriage after only seven years of wedlock.

Who Is Jude Littler Current Husband?

Littler stayed single for quite some time after her divorce and eventually tied the knot with N’Golo Kante, who began his football career as an amateur with JS Suresnes, a club located west of Paris. Still, he was not signed to a professional team until he was 19 when he joined Boulogne.

It was in 2012 that he made his first appearance in Ligue 2, and it was in 2013 that he made his breakthrough in the third tier. After that, he spent two years in Ligue 1 with Caen, leading the club to promotion and then survival.

He made his dream transfer to England in 2015 with Leicester City when he was 24 years old, but he never lost his humility and stayed in touch with his former coach at JS Suresnes, Pierre Ville.

Kante was a key figure in France’s triumph at the 2018 World Cup, which they won after he had already been instrumental in the victories of Leicester and Chelsea in the Premier League during his first two seasons in England.

A box-to-box midfielder, Kante is renowned for his extraordinary work rate and ability to win the ball. He is a player who maintains composure and discipline on the field and adheres to the team’s tactics while also being able to tackle opponents and retrieve possession, block shots, and intercept passes at will.  

Jude Littler’s Net Worth

Again, nothing is confirmed, but Jude Littler’s net worth is estimated at two million dollars, but her partner is estimated to be worth a staggering twenty-three million dollars. However, Djibril Cisse, Jude Littler’s ex-husband, has a net worth of $35 million.
