The UK tabloids are on fire today with news that Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli was spotted on a secret date with Nuts (among others) model Holly Henderson. Here in the stakes it’s the equivalent of Rob Gronkowski taking a photo with @XXXBibiJones. Balotelli is 21. Henderson checks in at 32FF and 32-years-old.

As an added bonus, Balotelli has a girlfriend, or at least he did last week. Ballotelli is our new Italian futbol hero. According to The Sun:

Balotelli — dubbed Super Mario by fans — was snapped with 32-year-old Holly at the Marriott Hotel and Country Club where she was working for an episode of Celebrity Come Dine With Me.

He turned up unannounced while she posed in a hot tub with former Hollyoaks star Paul Danan.

Of course all this drama has sent Italian TV into overdrive after The Sun used porn star in its headline. Henderson is waging a Twitter campaign to clear up that she’s not a porn chick, just a chick who’ll get completely naked for photos.

Jesus been all over the Italian tv today. I AM NOT A FRIGIN PORN STAR!!!!!!

U losers know nothin!!! U have no idea of the truth so keep judging and makin yourselves look silly with your childish comments!! #pathetic

Bullies who hate will 100% not be perfect, but behind their little specrum computers they r tough as f%$#!! Bet most r fat, have black teeth

Look, we’re not sure what the big problem is for these U.K. soccer fans but they need to just chill out. Let Mario ram through some road beef and rid himself of that 20-something testosterone. It’s not like he’s settling down with Hendo.

Dude is going to nut up and move on. Maybe he has a couple of huge goals along the way and all is forgotten.

As for us, we’ll just be over here contemplating what 32FFs cost in Euros these days.
