LONDON: I’D put money on MARIO BALOTELLI listening to NICKI MINAJ through his pink headphones.
Not only did he go to see her and her incredible bottom at Manchester’s MEN on Monday, he’d tee’d up a meet and greet with her too.
However, rapper Nicki snubbed Mario after the gig because she was tired.
A source said: “Mario was gutted. He’s a big fan and turned up with gifts along with his other Man City team-mates.
“But Nicki was too tired after the gig and feasted on a massive Nando’s order instead — so he went home disappointed. He’d even bought a camera especially.”
It was probably for the best as Mario and the players were on strict no-party orders because they had to be up early to head to Amsterdam. The team flew out yesterday to face Ajax in the Champions League.
Mario will have kept a low profile after his snub, but his team-mates were up for socialising.
