Mario Balotelli is said to have enjoyed an 18-month affair with a teenaged waitress, supposedly while he was still dating model Raffaela Fico.
19-year-old Italian waitress, Dahiana Rojas, claims that she began dating the Manchester City striker 18 months ago after he pulled up beside her in his Ferrarri and asked her out on a date. Mario had been dating model Raffaela for two years until April when they finally split. Dahiana claims she didn't know at the time that he was taken.
"It was like being in a film. I thought it was better if he called me so I gave him my number and he called me that evening," Dahiana told a weekly glossy magazine.
The teen claims she and Mario began texting each other "sweet," but a few weeks later she saw a picture of him and Raffaela making it clear that he had 'another' girlfriend. Dahiana says she was in contact with Mario again several months later and they spent the night together again the night before he flew to join the Italian football squad for the Euro 2012.
Apparently, Mario even flew Dahiana out to Krakow where the team was based to spend time with him, and they were pictured by Italian paparazzi.
"He is not the bad boy he is described as, he is gentle, humble, attentive, he is an ideal boyfriend. Between the sheets he is not bad either, he is not a whirling devil but sweet and tender," Dahiana explained defending the footballer.
"He does have a habit of losing his head and you never know if what he is saying is true or if he is winding you up."
Speaking of Raffaela, she added:
"He never uttered a word about her - it was as if she didn't exist in his life. When I found out from the papers that Raffaella was pregnant I was shocked.I sent him a text straight away on his British mobile to see if it was true. I asked him to be honest but he didn't even reply. He didn't have the courage. He was not man enough."
Despite Mario's alleged dishonesty, Dahiana says she would still take him back.
"I am ready to get back with him - my suitcases are packed but he has to prove to me that he is not taking me for a ride," she said.
Mario's ex Raffaela claims she is pregnant with his baby but he has demanded a paternity test.
