Controversial Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli hit the headlines earlier in the season when he revealed a T-shirt saying 'Why Always Me' after scoring against rivals United, but now it seems his mum is asking the same question.  

In an exclusive interview with sky sports news, Mrs Balotelli said she was sick of doing everything round the house and ordered her son to help her out more or find somewhere else to live. "Why is it always me who cooks dinner, why is it always me who does the washing, the ironing, etc etc, he treats this place like a hotel, it's time for him to grow up and take responsibility for himself". Mrs Balotelli also revealed that she hasn't seen a penny of the rent for last month even though the Italian earns around a 100k a week. "I've asked him numerous times for some money this month and still nothing, god knows what he's spending it on, I really hope it's not going on strippers again as I've already had a chat with him about that".

Former Inter Milan striker, Balotelli has hit the headlines on numerous occasions this season, most recently  for his behaviour in the defeat to Arsenal in which he could have been sent off three times. Luckily for Balotelli he was just sent off once because those are the rules of the game. His tackling was dangerous and his frustration reached boiling point. Mario's temper troubles are not just on the pitch, his mother also said his anger issues are a problem at home and has pleaded with him to go to anger management classes. "He needs to go and get help for this, said his desperate mother. "The other day when I told him we had run out of chocolate Nesquick, he kicked the coffee table so hard he ended up hurting himself, which resulted in him rolling around on the floor for ten minutes, it's just ridiculous".

Asked if she would throw Mario out on the street if his behaviour continued, Mrs Balotelli said "I'll always defend him, he's my son and he's a good guy, but if he does not change in the future, then he we'll lose everything. If he doesn't understand this after all these years I can do nothing. I hope for him he can improve around the house and just help me a bit more and understand that he can't continue to treat me like this".

Here are some rather interesting and funny anecdotes involving Easter that I have received randomly by E-mail.

My name is Mr Hunt and I am a primary school teacher and last year as a little fun for the children I dressed up as an Easter Egg and hid in the school playground while the pupils tried to find me, we called the whole exercise an Easter Egg Hunt as a pun on my name. The kids didn't really get it but I thought it was bloody hilarious.

A few years ago I dated this girl called Karen, she was pretty, funny, intelligent, everything I could wish for in a girlfriend, but after a few months she became more and more obsessive, calling and texting me constantly throughout my day and getting insanely jealous if I even looked at a member of the opposite sex. Eventually I decided to break it off with her. Shortly afterwards I was invited to a 30th birthday party on Good Friday, it was to be fancy dress and Easter was the theme, my flatmate Ed was going as the Easter bunny and was ready waiting for me at the flat, I was running late after being stuck at work, when I got a text from Karen telling me she was at the flat with Ed . I immeadetley began to panic and rushed back, but it was too late, there was Ed boiling in the saucepan.

I heard this story, I'm not sure if its entirely true but some of my friends swear by it, there was this man who lived in the area years ago and apparently he was nailed to a wooden cross or something by a load of nasty people for lying to them or something. Anyway it was a complete over-reaction and he was pronounced dead at the scene, well this was on the Friday. The family obviously were devastated and planning to have him buried when suddenly on the Sunday two days later, he came back to life. Amazing.

I work in an office and all the staff decided this year we would all quit something for lent, some stopped smoking, others stopped drinking, I decided to stop shagging all the blokes in the office, which hasn't been easy I can tell you. Anyway there is this girl called Martha, who bless her is rather large and not to mention stinks of TCP, she said she was giving up Easter eggs for lent, what comes after lent? Easter! we just fell about the place.

I once saw Take That's Gary Barlow eating a Cadbury's Creme Egg at Kew Gardens. He made a right mess of it as well.
