Is Neymar the ultimate player? Brazilian footballer had ‘sex contract’ with ex & secured club move
NEYMAR Jr is considered among the world’s greatest footballers – but this week it was his antics off the pitch that hit the headlines.
The footballer, 31, whose now ex gave birth to daughter Mavie last month, denied any wrongdoing and claimed the saucy requests to adult entertainer Aline Faria were from “years ago”.
But this is far from the first time Neymar's chequered love life has been thrust into the spotlight.
Here we take a look at how the striker could qualify as football's ultimate player, on and off the pitch.
Neymar was previously accused of cheating on Bruna in June 2022, with his alleged infidelity causing them to split.
But by January this year they were back together again and announced Bruna's pregnancy in April.
But another alleged affair came to light when blogger Fernanda Campos claimed she'd slept with the footballer in June.
According to Grazia, she told the newspaper Metrópoles that she started talking to Neymar in November 2022 and they were together on the night before Brazilian Valentine’s Day, celebrated on June 12.
Fernanda alleged he invited her to his Sao Paulo apartment and they spent 40 minutes together.
The following day she claimed to have discovered he was dating pregnant Bruna through his loved-up posts on social media.
Fernanda said: “It was ugly that he omitted that part.”
Neymar has not addressed the claims, but in a cryptic Instagram post he made a public apology to Bruna, where he described having “made a mistake”.
He wrote: “I already apologised for my mistakes, for unnecessary exposure, but I feel obligated to come publicly [sic] reaffirm that. If a private matter has become public, the apology has to be public.
“I don’t know if we’ll work out, but TODAY you’re sure I want to try. Our purpose will prevail, our love for our baby will win, our love for each other will make us stronger.”
That same month it was reported there was a ‘sex contract’ between Neymar and Bruna that allowed infidelity.
According to Em Off, it was claimed Neymar was “free to flirt and even have sex with other woman [sic]” but there were three conditions.
They included that he “must be discreet... wear a condom... and not kiss them on the mouth”.
In September, video footage showed Neymar partying with two different women in a Spanish nightclub and he was accused of cheating again.
At the time, Bruna wrote: “I’m aware of what happened and once again I am disappointed but in the final stage of my pregnancy, my focus and worries are directed to my daughter and that is all I will think about in the moment.”
It’s not the only alleged ‘sex contract’ linked to Neymar.
In 2014, sensational claims emerged about his £79million transfer from Santos FC to Barcelona.
The Brazilian club’s former president, Luis Álvaro de Oliveira Ribeiro, told ESPN that Neymar’s father and agent, Neymar Sr, green-lit the deal after controversial demands were met.
They allegedly included an orgy in a London hotel, described as “one of the most luxurious” and “where the Queen had tea”.
Ribiero, who branded Neymar Sr a “lying money-grabber”, also claimed he demanded free coffees and “a private jet” to see Brazil play – as well as additional flight tickets in a contract clause.
Furious Ribiero said: “The €90m included coffees for Neymar's father, as well as an orgy in a hotel in Piccadilly, London, because Neymar's father was looking to claim everything.
“He never once paid for a coffee. I paid for the 200 coffees he had with me. That included prostitutes and a plane to take him to Florianopolis to see the national team.”
He also added: “To give you an idea, in the last contracts he demanded a clause stating the club had to pay for first-class flight tickets for him and two business-class seats for his advisors to watch Neymar play away from home. It didn't matter whether it was for the national team or in the domestic league."
There was no suggestion Neymar Jr was involved in the alleged contract activities.
Before dating Bruna, Neymar enjoyed flings with a bevy of stunning models.
Social media influencer Carolina Dantas, who shares a son with the star, is considered his first love.
They dated between 2010 and 2011 while he was a rising star at Santos FC but their romance only lasted a year.
Shortly after the split he moved on to Playboy cover model Barbara Evans, who later became famous in Brazil after appearing on several reality TV shows.
Their romance lasted just a month or two before they parted ways, and later, he was linked to another Playboy model, Patricia Jordane.
In 2013 she appeared to confirm their relationship on a magazine front cover titled: “The brunette that enchanted Neymar.”
Neymar and model Bruna Marquezine were considered a ‘golden couple’ in the Brazilian press but their relationship was plagued by turmoil.
The couple dated off and off between 2012 and 2017 after meeting at the Rio Carnival – but rumours of affairs caused tension.
Social media star Laryssa Oliveira claimed she had a romantic liaison with the footballer in 2013, telling UOL Celebridades they “hooked up a couple of times” in 2010 but also while he was dating Bruna.
She claimed the footballer flew her out for a three-day fling days before he split from Bruna.
Neymar denied all of the claims and filed a lawsuit against Laryssa.
Bruna also rejected claims that alleged infidelity ended their romance, insisting the relationship had simply run its course.
During the gaps between Neymar’s on-off relationship with Bruna, he was linked to several other glamorous women.
Ahead of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, he was said to be dating model Gabriella Lenzi and the star shared photos of them both online.
They were last seen together in Ibiza after Neymar’s national team exited the competition after losing to Germany.
Later that year he was pictured with yet another Playboy beauty, Soraja Vucelic, who he also met in Ibiza.
The model had been named Playmate of the Year by the brand’s Serbian publication in 2011.
During their fling, Soraja was reportedly flown by private jet to see him in Spain while Neymar played for Barcelona.
