Nice striker Mario Balotelli has had his messages to a model known as 'a porn star without the porn' revealed online.
The former Manchester City and Liverpool hitman used social media platform Instagram to get in touch with Katja Krasavice, and was soon exposed after the blonde shared a screenshot of their messaging thread.
So as not to expose the content of the messages, she did blur them out. However, while the image has been removed from her feed, it can be viewed over at the Sun
Katja, who is German-born, is followed by just shy of 1m people on Instagram, and has a YouTube channel with 820,000 subscribers.
The Sun also alleges she was evicted from her flat, after neighbours claimed to hear "porn noises" and was once booted out of a shopping mall after filming herself wearing a cat suit and being walked with a lead by a porn star friend, who went by the name of "Lucy Cat".
Balotelli is known to have dated a number of beautiful women over the years, including Fanny Neguesha, whom he was engaged to, and Raffaella Fico, who is the mother of his child.
On the football front, Mario has scored 13 goals in 23 appearances but picking up three red cards
