Aston Villa star Douglas Luiz is said to have split with his footballer girlfriend after they rowed about her saucy calendar release.
Luiz and Alisha Lehmann, who plays for Villa Women, met on the club's grounds last year. Lehmann confirmed her relationship with the Brazilian on Instagram where she posted a pic of them kissing alongside a boomerang.
The besotted couple often displayed public shows of affection. And when Lehmann wasn't playing on the pitch, she'd regularly be seen cheering Luiz on from the stands at Villa Park.

She was spotted in a box seat during Villa's 2-1 loss to Arsenal that Luiz scored in September. And Luiz reciprocated her support by applauding her top bins effort on Soccer AM which she posted on Instagram.
He also leapt to Lehmann's defence when a presenter objectified her during a game. Things got more serious between the doting duo when Lehmann moved out of her penthouse in January to live in Luiz's £1.5million five-bed house in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham.
But football's power couple have called it quits following tense arguments over Lehmann's decision to release a calendar filled with raunchy pics, The Sun reported. Their rows were so intense Lehmann's moved out of Luiz's gaffe and is staying with a friend, it was added.

A source who was speaking to the publication said: “Douglas was completely smitten with Alisha. When she first arrived, he was like, ‘Who is this girl?’.
"He quickly asked her out and they became a footballing power couple. They were so loved up. But, sadly, as Alisha became more in demand off the pitch, the cracks started to appear in their relationship.
“When asked to do a calendar, she jumped at the chance to show off her sexy side but he was not happy. He didn’t think it was something she should be doing.
"They rowed a lot and in the end Alisha simply had enough." Lehmann will take comfort from her legion of 9.3million Instagram followers during their break-up.
But Luiz will have a lot of time to reflect on their relationship, as he was left out of Brazil's World Cup squad. The Seleção start the tournament on Friday, November 25, when they take on Serbia in Qatar.
