A Foine Romance Or A Messi Marriage?

It seems that when it comes to Lionel Messi and Antonella Roccuzzo’s relationship status, even our overactive imaginations have failed to keep up with actual events.

Deep breaths.

Remember last week when we assumed the couple were back ‘on’? This assumption was based, quite reasonably, on photos of the couple draped all over one another on a boat. Now it seems that we are in the rare position of potentially ‘underselling’ the story – a last-season-look that does not suit us at all. A rumour from what is being touted as a ‘reliable’ Twitter account, has stated that Leo and Antonella actually got married whilst in Ibiza for the summer break.

Yes, you read that right. Argentine football commentator Marcelo Araujo has stated that the couple tied the knot on their hols, with Dani Alves and Leo’s cuz on the limited guest list.

Let us state, for the record, that there has been no confirmation from any official source. Indeed, Spanish paper ‘Sport’ has run a story claiming a denial has been issued by Leo’s family. Meanwhile, Araujo has put his very career on the line by stating ‘if this is false, I will shut down my (Twitter) account”.

Well. Your guess is as good as ours, Kickettes. Have at it.

(Ed Note: To ease you through your pain at this difficult time, we have chosen to use images from Messi’s recent GQ Italia shoot. Sorry.)

    So assuming they are promise rings. Why would he need that? A serious man would just pop the question and put an engagement ring instead. Sounds fishy.

  2. sahil says:

    he too has a girlfriend??lol

  3. Annie says:

  6. Raincitygirl says:

    Well, if they did get married, congratulations to them both. And congratulations to them both anyway, even if all they did was get back together. It's nice to see people in happy relationships, regardless of their ring status.

  7. Agnes Wonka says:

    I don't think they got married, if they did…..wow! they're great in keeping secrets.

  8. Zahara says:

  9. Annie says:

    Could someone explain that phenomenon?

  10. Anna says:

    Emo bangs anyone?…..alittle late on the trend there no?

    Well if they did get married probably wont last, there too young and his too rich! sooo yeah.

  11. snowflake says:

  12. Melanieee. says:

  13. Nienke says:

    Like Messi would get married if his mum wasn't there.

  14. JA7 says:

    On twitter, barcastuff said that he hasnt gottten married :/

  15. amber says:

    Hope he got an ironclad pre-nup!

  16. ChefDi says:

    love the fotos, love your headline especially. He's a doll and so deserves to be happy, so I'm fine with whatever the truth is ~ and, I can't wait to hear more, thanks for the heads up ;-) !!

  17. Carvivlie says:

    True or not, Leo is definitely getting more comfortable as a model. Remember those unfortunate underwear ads from a few years back.

  18. Gladys says:

    Congratulations to them whether it's a wedding or simply a re-shacking (I tend to think it's the later). On a more self-absorbed nerd girl fantasy note, that first photo, wow! Adorable Leo and a room of books. Throw in a streaming Netflix account and regular cupcake delivery and I'd never leave!

  19. Gladys says:

    Happy for them whether it’s a wedding or simply re-shacking up…though I’m selfishly caught up in my own nerd girl fantasy with that first photo. Adorable Leo and a library of books! What else does the room come with? A large flatscreen, unlimited Netflix streaming, and regular cupcake delivery?! I think I’d never leave.

  20. sarah says:

    I don't know this story seems kind of fake.

    • sarah says:

      but whatever if it's true congrats. antonella is gorgeous. She is cute but hot at the same time.

  21. Sarah says:

    Hmm I’m going to need more proof. I don’t believe it.

  22. Pam says:

    Congrats either way (that they are back together or married). Leo is like a oh so cute puppy. You want him to be always!

  23. Liviepool says:

    Okay, I’m going to need a lot of ice cream and photos of hot, single men.

  24. shubhi1culegirl says:

    Wow! This was out of the blue! I never did think he'd get married so early. Ah well, my dreams are dashed but if Messi's happy then I'm happy too!

  25. Kat22 says:

    If it's true – congrats!

    Oh, and best of luck for tonight! ;-)

    • Kat22 says:

      Why am I getting thumbed downed for this?

      Good grief, some people need to get a life and stop taking everything so seriously!

      • Gladys says:

        I think it's less the "congrats" and more the "best of luck" part (I thumbed you up, btw!). Let's hope he vomits three times tonight. ;)

        • Kat22 says:

          Oh, I knew it was about the 'best of luck' part. Still think people should stop being so bloody serious though, Christ! Not a fan of either Barcelona or Real Madrid, so my comment was perfectly innocent really.

          Thank you by the way. :-)

        • PepaCandela says:

          seriously, people need to relax. it's a freaking supercopa. it's not like anyone is going to parade in the streets for this. no need to take it out on a comment!

      • xoWinnie says:

        i honestly think there's some freak here who goes into posts and thumbs EVERYTHING down.
        like sometimes i'll go into posts with like, 3 comments, and they'll all be thumbed down! WTF!

        • Kat22 says:

          You could be right. I've seen people get thumbed down for the most innocuous comments. Some people are just sad I guess.

    • Lotte says:

      Thumbs up:)!

  26. Rachael says:

    I can’t understand why his family would deny it if it were true all seems a bit strange but wish them all the best if it is

  27. xoWinnie says:

    that suited up GQ-ish looking photo is unfortunate.
    other than that, best of luck to 'em (if this is true, of course).

  28. Estefi says:

    Marcelo Araujo is an old dinosaur who cannot work anymore. I hate him. A lot. And they didn't get married, but she's living with him again and they are planning to tie the knot, maybe next year (or so they say in my city, Rosario).

  29. Sarah, Madrid says:

    Married or not! What's with the controversy! If so, Congrats! if not! Hope to hear the good news soon ;)

  30. Bri says:

    Here's to the kickettes who called it, pointing out the rings in the photos!

  31. linvinnaar says:

    On another note, Leo, should you ever get bored of Antonella, you know where to find me. Bring your polka dot bow tie for added seducing effect although I'm already willing to have your babies without second thoughts. I still love you.

  32. linvinnaar says:

    I cannot imagine how sometimes your jobs can be so difficult in the sense that it might just break millions of hearts. I'm not fond of Antonella, to be honest but if Leo's happy then all (should be) is well in the world. For now. On the bright side, at least he looks good without needing to try too hard, unlike *ahem* Cristiano *ahem*.

    • Ashley says:

      Do you have a hardon for Cristiano that you cannot post without mentioning his name.

      • xoWinnie says:

        LOL! seriously…haters gon hate on that man for days!
        even when the post has NOTHING to do with him!

        • indianmuggle says:

          it's just that their footballing rivalries are so exaggerated by websites like Goal.com ..who happen to compare the urmm..social networking skills (I'm not joking!) that it is inevitable that some sort of comparison arises in every other aspect too.
          For me Leo is the clear winner…

    • Agnes Wonka says:

      why do you mess up with CR and Irina (who are an amazing couple) with sth has nothing to do?
