After just over a year of dating, singer, Tini Stoessel and footballer Rodrigo de Paul have announced their separation on Twitter. The couple were first seen in public together in Ibiza, Spain in April 2022 and had been together since.
In footballer De Paul’s tweet he states, “I want to tell you all that Tini and I have decided to end our relationship,” which confirmed the separation rumors that have been circulating since July.
The two have been very supportive of each other throughout their relationship. Stoessel, usually referred to as Tini, brought Rodrigo on stage during one of her performances after the Argentine’s World Cup victory in Qatar. De Paul has also accompanied Tini during her tour in Spain and has even brought his daughter with him for some of her concerts.
The former couple share a tattoo of a sun and the footballer also has “Tini” written above his belly button.
Tini is best known for being a singer and actress. Born in 1997 she has previously worked with Disney in the show Violetta, where she plays the titular protagonist. Since then she has released four albums and is currently on tour and recording her music videos.
Tini and De Paul have completely different schedules and so to maintain their career paths they have decided to go their separate ways. The couple have also both tweeted that “we have lived very beautiful moments, where I had the opportunity to get to know a person that I love and respect a lot.”
The break up comes amid controversy surrounding De Paul, who was recently accused by his ex Camila Homs — with whom he was with for over a decade — of neglecting the two children they share together. This nearly cost him competing in Qatar.
Tini and De Paul have made it clear that it is not because of the lack of love that they have for each other and that the breakup is amicable. Argentine social media is heartbroken in response.
