Our brother and drama-generating Manchester City forward Mario Balotelli has dumped his girlfriend Melissa Castagnoli by a text message.
Balotelli, who was born to Ghanaian parents in Italy, was spotted out with the girl during his first few weeks in the UK dumped the girl just as she was about to appear on primetime Italian telly show Chiambretti Night.
Unfortunately for Super Mario, his jilted ex got herself some revenge… by reading his words out, live on air.
The two texts Castagnoli received from Balotelli read, “I’m back (Balotelli had caught a private jet from Manchester to Italy) to make you change, but never mind, you’re sunk. Everything is against you tomorrow, bye!
“You‘re a stupid girl, the real problem is not a child, but stupid! Say hello to the (presenter), which is good for you! Um, OK.”
According to Melissa, the relationship between the pair, who met on Facebook, had soured after she started pursuing her own career in entertainment.
The former pageant winning model grew bored of ‘watching DVDs, shopping and going to dinner’ in Manchester and made it clear to Mario she was ready to hand in her WAG card, which apparently made the 20-year-old ‘jealous.’
Anyway, Balotelli hasn’t wasted any time fixing the pieces of his broken heart – he was recently spotted bowling around Manchester with this astonishingly hot young lady on his arm. Oh, that Mario!
