FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi married his childhood girlfriend Antonella Roccuzzo on Friday 30 June 2017 in their hometown of Rosario, Argentina. The ceremony was spectacular, as football legends such as Samuel Eto’o, Sergio Aguero, Carles Puyol and Cesc Fabregas were present.
According to sources, Messi’s mother, Celia Maria Cuccittini, nearly spoiled her son’s wedding as she entered the hall with her husband Jorge Messi dressed in a white dress. The mother of Messi would have defied the Argentine tradition by wearing a white dress because only the bride has the right to wear white at a wedding.
These same sources reveal that the family of the bride and groom were on bad terms before marriage. Argentine media revealed that Messi had booked a full floor of the resort complex in downtown Rosario, while Antonella’s family occupied another floor. There would be serious tensions between the two families.
According to Sport, the older brothers of Lionel Messi, Rodrigo and Matias, and his mother Célia Maria, would never have visited him in Barcelona, where he lives with Antonella and their little boys Thiago and Mateo.
