Although it has always been said that Lionel Messi and Antonela Roccuzzo were boyfriends almost since they were children, a friend of hers assures that the now FC Barcelona star woman had a relationship, which lasted several years, with another man. It calls back to a very sad story.
Messi and Roccuzzo got married in 2017 during the off-season, the wedding was celebrated in Rosario, their hometown. Many Barcelona players like Xavi Hernández, Gerard Piqué and Carles Puyol came from Spain with their wives to the party. IT’s a long love story, but not the first one for the bride.
One of Roccuzzo's closest friends spoke to Argentine magazine Para Ti, where she explained that, although it is true that they have known each other since they were only ten years old, Messi's wife began dating him in 2007. Before that, there was another man in her life, and it’s not the Barcelona legend.
“She didn’t left me for any random guy, she left me for Lionel Messi”, confessed later this man, whose identity remains unknown. Messi and Roccuzzo were introduced by her cousin Lucas Scaglia, Messi’s best friend, who played football professionally for Newell’s Old Boys and later throughout South America.
