Mario Balotelli is young, rich and a star in the making. The British press chronicles every one of his strange antics, but the goalscorer insist he’s not as crazy as everyone thinks.
What is beyond doubt is that the 21-year-old Manchester City and Italy star enjoys the high life. He drives fast cars and dates beautiful women. Among them are models, actresses, model-turned-actresses and actresses-turned-models.
Sophie Reade and Faye Evette Betts had a falling out over the FA Cup hero at the beginning of the year. Balotelli is now reportedly dating Italian actress Rafaella Fico, but was reportedly spotted on a secret date with model Holly Henderson early this month. Only the player knows how serious he is (or has been) with any of these women.
