Fact or Fiction: The Love Life of Iker Casillas

Let’s address the Sara Carbonero and Iker Casillas relationship talk.
First, we need to say that Sara strikes us as that girl we all knew at school. The rail thin one that swears she doesn’t deprive herself of food. The girl that’s class president who also wants to be the yearbook editor while organizing the senior prom. So before we continue, let’s all roll our eyes as the boys fawn all over her.
(Is it obvious that she grates on our nerves a tad?)
So, we’re having some difficulty evaluating the validity of certain statements in the press about the pair. Especially those supposed Iker utterances. Ya know, the “woman of my life” ones?
(And lest we forget, the the foreign press slammed Iker’s lack of persuasion power when it was rumoured Sara had “chosen” another, older man at the Real Madrid goalkeeper’s expense.)
Here’s what we know and what we call suspect on:
Claim: The pair first met in South Africa.
Fact: She was covering the CONCACAF tournament for Telecinco.
Fiction: Sparks flew and Iker sent her flowers. As we all know, Iker made an attempt at stabilization with Ana Isabel, but that fizzled quickly. If she was the spaghetti to his meatballs, Iker could’ve gotten what he wanted.
Claim: The pair were spotted together at Pacha last week celebrating Real Madrid’s victory over Espanyol win with Iker’s teammates.
Fact: Pacha is a club for… how shall we put this… folks like Nereida. We’re talking about Iker here, peeps.
Fiction: If Iker & friends decided to paint the town Hot, Wouldn’t there be photos? No photos, no proof, no story. For now, anyway. Also, we’ve heard alternate whispers that Iker wasn’t at Pacha that night, but at a different discoteca.
Claim: The pair spent a romantic Valentine’s Day together
Fact: Unfortunately we don’t have access to Iker’s calendar (we do have C-ron’s though) but Pastasauce supposedly caused heads to turn 10 days prior to V-day when she spent a night partying – without her boyfriend.
So, in summary: we really have no idea what’s actually going on.
But our sources say that so far the insider chat has been pretty silent on this – when usually, gossip like this is impossible to keep out of the media. We’ll keep you posted.
