Footballer Maur Icardi has accused wife Wanda Nara of being “toxic” and alleged she tried to “control” his life.
Wanda, who married Galatasaray forward Icardi in 2014, confirmed their split earlier this week, The Sun reports.

She wrote: “It is very painful for me to live this moment. But given my exposure and the things that are transcending and the media speculation, it is preferable that they know about it from me.
“I have nothing more to clarify and I am not going to give any kind of detail about this separation.
“Please, I ask that you understand not only for me, but also for our children.”
Now Icardi has broken his silence on the separation by posting private messages between the two on social media.
And he added the caption: “When you are single, or you say you are, but you are toxic.”
In another Instagram story, he posted the message: “Now you want to manage my life separately too?”
As reported by Marca, the messages posted by Icardi as a screenshot showed Wanda asking whether the footballer was alone and where he was.
Icardi then responds by labelling her “toxic” and wanting to “manage” his life.
The Argentine ended up deleting the messages from his social media.
However, he did then post a picture blowing a kiss to the camera, tagging Wanda in it alongside a heart and kissing emoji.
Icardi, who has two children with Wanda – Francesca, seven, and Isabella, five, recently left Paris Saint-Germain to join Galatasaray on loan.
He was unveiled alongside former Manchester United man Juan Mata and three other new signings.
Icardi made his debut for the Turkish giants earlier this month in a 2-1 win over Konyaspor.
