Rafaella Fico and Pia BalotelliItalian footballer Mario Balotelli “is absolutely irresponsible, unconcerned about the fate of his little daughter,” said his ex-girlfriend Raffaella Fico in Wednesday’s edition of the popular magazine Chi.

“He has not given a penny, not even a phone call to see if she needs anything,” said the model, who appeared on the magazine’s cover with daughter Pia.

“Mario is irresponsible. At some point he lost interest in me and our daughter. We were getting married, that was our project, our will — but it all fell apart, and I do not know why,” Fico said in the interview, which also revealed how she communicated with Mario on Dec. 6 —  the day the baby was born.

“I sent messages to Mario from 3 p.m., when I had the first contractions, until 6:30 p.m., when I walked into the delivery room. When I came out of there, immediately after the birth of Pia, I sent him more messages,” said Fico.

“My phone rang at 12:30 a.m.,” she said of her conversation with Balotelli. “‘I’m not interested’ he said. That was the last time I heard from him.”

The couple had separated in early July, when Fico, 24, publicly announced that she was pregnant with Balotelli, who asked — through the media — for a paternity test.

“Even if he doesn’t ask for it anymore, I will do a paternity test to show the world that Pia is the daughter of Mario Balotelli,” Fico said. “I will go on without him and his money. The door remains open for my daughter, but my heart’s door is closed forever.”
