Mario Balotelli was born on August 12, 1990, in Palermo, Sicily, to Ghanaian immigrants Rose and Thomas Barwuah. His family relocated to Lombardy when he was two years old.
They were destitute, and they couldn't afford to raise four children. Mario's parents decided to place him in foster care due to poor family background.
Silvia and Francesco Balotelli, who lived in the Italian town of Brescia, adopted him.
Mario met his biological parents every weekend for the first few years, but he quickly stopped and embraced Silvia and Francesco as his parents.
The athlete was promised a comfortable existence by the Balotelli family, who were wealthy.
Mario Balotelli is regarded as one of the world's best-dressed footballers. In 2012, he was rated the second best-dressed man by GQ.
