Mario Balotelli splits with pregnant girlfriend Raffaella Fico again

Mario Balotelli splits with pregnant girlfriend Raffaella Fico again

London, Nov 14 : Mario Balotelli's fiery on-off romance with pregnant girlfriend Raffaella Fico is off again, according to reports.
Balotelli, 22, had kissed and made up with Fico, 24, last month after the two split in a bitter doorstep bust up earlier this year when she flew to Britain from Manchester to confront him over his cheating.
But now it has emerged that the Italian striker, who was dropped from last week's match against Tottenham, has not been in touch with the underwear model, who is due to give birth on Christmas Day, since they met up last month - and they have rowed over the fact he wants her to have the baby in Manchester, the Daily Mail reported.
Fico, who earlier this week was the lead model in a wedding dress show, said: "All I will say is that to be a good father doesn't just mean giving your DNA. A good father needs to be besides the woman he has decided to have a child with."
"He should be present, he should be interested. He can't just turn up at the last minute and pick up the packet (baby).
"You should love a child even when it's in it's mother's tummy. You can't just buy children with money. He's just disappeared. He doesn't want to be a father," she said.
A source close to Fico said that she was hoping things were back on track after the Man City ace flew over and they patched things up, but it seems his back to his old ways and he has not been in touch at all for weeks.
There's a bit of friction over where Raffaella gives birth. Mario would like it to be in Manchester but she wants to be in Italy close to her mother, the source said.
"All Raffaella wants is a nice stable relationship and atmosphere into which she wants to bring their baby into and what she would like above all is to get married, in church with a lovely dress and all the trimmings that go with it - a nice reception, doves, confetti and be surrounded by family and friends," the source added.
