Former Italian footballer beats his ex to death with a hammer, after she reported him for stalking

An Italian footballer allegedly clubbed his ex-girlfriend to death with a hammer and a baseball bat weeks after she reported him for stalking.

Giovanni Padovani – a model and former youth payer at Napoli – has played as a centre back for ten clubs in Italy’s Serie C and Serie D leagues.

Earlier in August he signed for fourth tier Sancataldese, based in Sicily.

But last weekend he was absent from the opening clash of the Italian Cup, against local rivals Catania.

Giovanni Padovani, 27, allegedly left his team on the eve of a cup tie and flew to Bologna to lie in wait for his older lover Alessandra Matteuzzi, 56.

As she arrived home he then ambushed her in the lobby of her apartment building, police said.

She was on the phone with her sister Stefania who heard her agonizing screams as she was being attacked.

The sister told a local TV station: “She got out of her car and started screaming, ‘No Giovanni, no, I beg you, help.’

“I was on the phone. I immediately called the Carabinieri who arrived straight away.

“I live 30km away. In the end he beat her to death.”

Alessandra and her younger lover had been a couple for around a year, according to reports in Italy.

However they spent most of their time apart as she lived in Bologna and he played his football in Sicily.

In January there was a bust-up at her home when he smashed dishes and a light bulb, her sister claimed.

After they split he allegedly bombarded her with messages and calls at all hours.

On previous occasions he had sabotaged her car, disconnected her meter from the outside, and tried to climb up to her balcony, residents said before she reported him to police for stalking, according to police allegations.

One neighbour told local Sicily media: “She was very afraid of him because he had become persistent and she didn’t want to let him in the house”.

Another neighbour said Sandra had asked her not to open the door if Padovani rang the buzzer to get into the building.

On Friday, August 26, Italian Justice minister Marta Cartabia sent inspectors to review the actions of Bologna cops following Alessandra’s complaint.

Bologna Chief Prosecutor Giuseppe Amato denied accusations of judicial negligence in the case, reports news agency Ansa.

He said a probe was immediately launched after the complaint was registered on August 1, but the investigation could not conclude until next week because witnesses were on holiday.

“We did what we could,” he said, adding the stalking report did not highlight “situations of a concrete risk of violence, it was just the typical conduct of bothersome stalking”.

Sancataldese club lawyer Salvatore Pirrello said Padovani had left the team’s training retreat last Saturday saying he had personal problems.

He phoned the club asking to rejoin the team on Monday but was told to stay away, reports Corriere della Sera.

He then flew to Bologna in northern Italy, where he allegedly ambushed his ex on Tuesday this week.

After Alessandra died in hospital of massive head injuries, Padovani was arrested on suspicion of aggravated murder and is being held in custody.

Today, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame® inductees, Songwriters Hall of Fame inductees, and GRAMMY® Award-winning music legends The Isley Brothers proudly present their anxiously awaited new album, Make Me Say It Again, Girl THE ALBUM. It marks the duo’s first full-length LP since 2006 and thirty-first original album overall. Get Make Me Say It Again, Girl THE ALBUM—HERE.

 

To celebrate the arrival of the record, the group shared the music video for the new single “The Plug” [feat. 2 Chainz]. Watch the music video for “The Plug”—HERE. Finger-snaps punctuate the guitar-laden beat as a promise echoes, “If you need a little love ‘cause you ran out, sugar, you know I got it.” Meanwhile, iconic Atlanta hip-hop superstar 2 Chainz rolls through with a simmering soulful verse of his own. The accompanying visual translates this vibe seamlessly to the screen.

 

If you need love, these gentlemen have got “The Plug”…

 

They originally set the stage for the record with a recreation of The Isley Brothers classic 1975 love ballad, “Make Me Say It Again, Girl,” joined by none other than Beyoncé. It recently catapulted to #1 on the Billboard Adult R&B Airplay Chart, standing out as their first #1 since “Contagious.” It incited a flurry of critical applause from the likes of The FADER and Vulture who proclaimed, “For this one, Bey is out of Club Renaissance, trading lines with Isley over a smooth, polished track.”

 

Make Me Say It Again, Girl THE ALBUM places the pair’s classic sound in the spotlight for a whole new era. Whether it be the cinematic scope of “Long Voyage Home” or R&B escapism of “Disappear,” they lean into the hallmarks of their signature style with undeniable energy. They’ve also brought a few friends—both old and new—along for the ride. El Debarge and Earth, Wind & Fire team up with The Isley Brothers for the generational banger “There’ll Never Be,” while Rick Ross flexes with pure lyrical fire during “Biggest Bosses.” Elsewhere, Quavo and Takeoff ignite the irresistible and infectious “Keys To My Mind.”
