Mother of Barcelona’s star Lionel Messi, Celia Cuccittini has been accused of starting a rift that has lingered for long with her son’s new wife. The accusations seem to be true as she appeared at their wedding wearing almost the same gown with her daughter-in-law.
Celia appeared at the wedding with her family wearing a silver white lace gown that looked so similar to that of Antonella Roccuzzo the new bride. This act in Argentina shows a lack of respect for the bride if any guest or family member attend the wedding wearing white.
Despite that the designer of Messi’s mother revealed that she will appear “dark”, it was surprising to all that not only the color of their gown was the same but even the design of their dresses was the same. It is rumoured that the choice of dress was an attempt by Celia to compete with her daughter-in-law who she never wanted to marry her son.
There has been a rumour that a long-term rift between Antonella and Celia has been for long which is caused by the long-standing rift between Messi’s mother and Antonella’s family and the families has not been on speaking terms.
The family battle was glaring as the bride’s family was reported to have stayed in a different floor at the hotel while the Messis booked an entire floor of the City Center Rosario hotel Complex. A source had revealed that the rift of the families has been for about seven years now.
It was gathered that the fight can be traced to the 2010 world Cup, when the Messis were on their way to South Africa before it was revealed to them by an interviewer that Antonella was already there. According to reports, Messi’s mother got angry at the information which led to her son stopping his parents from attending the competition.
