Carles Puyol and Malena Costa break-up

Ahhh, the happier days. Taken November 2010. Image via SI.com

After a week of speculation, it has been confirmed by Malena Costa that she and FC Barcelona’s Carles Puyol are no more. Just a month after their one year anniversary, the couple has mutually decided to part ways.

You never know, this is very hard on me right now,” said Costa, when asked about a possible reconciliation. She gave no other details about the split.

Boo, we liked them together. Kisses and happy thoughts to them both! Hmm, it might prove to be useful to be the cava queen after all, right Malena?

    I like Malena and this kind of shocks me. She's proven that age or looks don't matter to her as her first serious relationship at age 19 was with a Spanish billionaire who was 50+. Carles is a huge upgrade for her – plus he's super famous and a beloved player on a beloved sports team.

    Carles can have his share of women but he strikes me as a down-to-earth guy and Malena's youfulness and optimism is what he was so enamoured with.

    I wonder why they broke up? My guess is there's got to be an unknown factor – feelings for another man (by Malena) or woman (by Carles), or something. These two were so in love, and shared common interests. It's so out of the blue.

    As much as I hate being the barrier of bad news, we must realize it takes more than looks to maintain a relationship. Many of you are writing that she was so beautiful, etc. but we do not know her personality. If their personalities did not match then the relationship was going to fail.

    Oohh, that's bad news :( ! I really liked them together.

    Finalmente! Finally!… gold digger begone! That girl has a reputation of being a gold-digger of the highest order. She was with a dude who was at least 20 yrs older than her when she was just a teenager, and he's a filthy rich Spanish businessman. And then after him, she got to be with Puyi, who is also doing pretty well economically and on top of that famous…

    he probably realized that while it might be nice to play with little models,
    he needs someone on his own maturity level. or maybe not.
    perhaps Puyol just longs to be the eternal bachelor.

    Why do they break up and Shique and Pakira don't. This is hsqgporieaigjhmlkstupid. I wish it was the other way around. I hope they're not sad now.

  9. Nicole says:

    I love her! She is such a caring and sweet girl. Her and Puyi were great together; they really proved everyone wrong with the age difference and you could tell that they really did love each other. Oh well. Best of luck to her in the future and maybe there is a chance we'll see these 2 together again someday.

  10. Taz says:

    Shame man, they were a really cool couple! at first i was freaked by the age difference because she's so young, but they actually turned out to be good couple.

  11. mata says:

    They both seem really sweet and I liked them together but I can't help thinking that at 22 she is too young and should play the field a bit before settling down, especially with a 33 year old, so maybe it's all for the best for both of them.

  12. BlackRose says:

    She looked sad when she confirmed the breakup… Malena is so beautiful, and she seems sweet and caring (she regularly went to no-kill animal shelters with Puyi and that's one thing they had in common: they love animals), so whatever may happen now, I truly wish her happiness.

    why am I not surprised?

  14. Lily says:

    I never thought they were going to last.

  17. JA7 says:

  18. Thea says:

    She was very different to Anges – and very young but hey mabe the Barca guys are single and ready to mingle!!!

  19. Sophie says:

    Aw I thought they made a nice couple, Rumours of Pique spilting with Shakira, now Puyol and Malena. Have Pique and Puyol been spending too much time with Cesc since his return to Barca?

  20. Sarah, Madrid says:

    Yeah! I just heard it too on tv!!…Wish them luck apart, I actually liked them together!.. perpare for the crazy rumors of why they did..

  21. Hot4Spurs says:
