 Kaka: What to know about Caroline Celico, who divorced her husband for being ‘too perfect’

Caroline Lyra Celico, former wife of AC Milan legend Kaka, disclosed that she ended their marriage because she felt he was “too perfect” for her. 

Despite being childhood sweethearts and sharing a decade-long marriage with two children, Celico sensed a void in their relationship due to Kaka’s perceived perfection. Their divorce in 2015 led them both to new marriages. 

Celico emphasized that Kaka never betrayed her and provided a wonderful family, but she couldn’t find happiness, attributing it to his flawlessness. Meanwhile, Kaka, known for his brilliance on the football field, transitioned through Sao Paolo, AC Milan, Real Madrid, and Orlando City, alongside a decorated international career with Brazil.
