God is Dead: Kaká and Caroline Celico Divorcing

Brazilian football superstar Kaká, the 2007 Ballon d'Or winner currently on loan at São Paulo FC, announced this week through his official representative that he and his wife of nine years, Caroline Celico, are divorcing.

The text, published in both English and Portuguese, reads as follows:

We would like to make public that, after nine years together, we have commonly agreed to divorce.

Our marriage has given us two beautiful children whom we love so dearly. In light of the important ties we’ll continue to have, the respect, gratitude, and admiration for one another remains mutually intact.

We ask for your sympathy and understanding to preserve our privacy in such moment of change.

The couple married in 2005, when Kaká was 23 and Caroline was 18, and have two children: Luca, aged six, and Isabella, aged three. They are both committed evangelical Christians, making this announcement especially shocking; Kaká even sang a romantic duet with Caroline on her gospel album. Rumors of their separation first surfaced in June this year, with competing reports of infidelity from both sides, but they publicly denied these reports and were seen in public together as recently as October 25th.

Below the cut, some photos of the couple in happier times.

The couple's last public outing on October 26th, at a friend's wedding.
