“We would like to announce it publicly that, after nine years together, we have commonly agreed to divorce. Our wedding has given us two beautiful and cute children whom we love so dearly.

We will continue to have, the gratitude, respect, and admiration for one another remains mutually intact. We ask for your sympathy and understanding to preserve our privacy at such moment of change.”

Meanwhile, Celico wrote:

“One of the most difficult decisions in our lives is choosing whether we want to walk together or apart.

Decisions that influence others, that interfere in more lives, that impact our lives and our memories forever.

It was 13 years together, a lot of emotions, a lot of stories, a lot of good and bad moments that we always overcame together. And most importantly, the two unique and special lives we gained with these 10 years of marriage.

This time we have been overcoming the most painful process that is separation for some time. It was not an easy decision, and it comes with delicate consequences and a grieving process.

I ask for the press’s collaboration in the upcoming notes. I ask for understanding from followers, fans, admirers so that they do not judge, do not launch comments with the small perception of the tiny part of our lives that has become public.

If not even family or closest friends could decipher it, how could those watching from afar?

Only Kaká and I know the truth of our distance and differences, perhaps normal or common, but not possible to resolve after countless attempts, over a long period of time.

The story we formed side by side was unique, successful, and will stay with us forever. I will always respect and admire you in all your virtues.

We will maintain a good relationship, of affection and esteem.

I wish happiness for us, as a family that we will always be, and wisdom to move forward.”
