He breaks up with fiance for Playboy bunny

Liverpool's new signing Mario Balotelli split with his Belgian fiancee last week and sources say he is besotted with a UK Playboy bunny.

The Italy striker is on the front pages yet again after he broke up with Miss Fanny Negeusha for Miss Carla Howe (below), who wrecked Juventus footballer Patrice Evra's marriage, reported Germany's Bild daily.

Balotelli was with Miss Neguesha, 24, a model, for a year and half and he proposed to her in June, claiming that her saying yes was one of the most important yeses of his life.

But he appears to have a change of heart.

The source said Balotelli and Miss Howe started private messaging each other on Instagram before moving on to messaging service WhatsApp.

A source told The Sun: "Carla gets interest from amazing guys all over the world, so it was Mario doing the chasing. She was attracted to him and is single so would be happy to go on a date, but only if he behaves himself.

"They have spoken about meeting next time she's in Britain."
