Neymar’s Mother And Lover Questioned By Police Over Alleged Domestic Violence
The mother of football superstar Neymar and her 23-year-old lover has been questioned by Brazilian police over an incident which led to the latter being rushed to hospital this week.
Nadine Goncalves, 52, called an ambulance after her boyfriend Tiago Ramos suffered an injury during a reported row in the couple’s apartment in Santos on Tuesday night.
Ramos needed 12 stitches in his arm, with reports stating the wound was caused by a glass according to a report by The Daily Mail.
However, Goncalves’ spokesperson said it was a domestic accident. In her words:
There was a domestic accident with Tiago. Nadine thought it best to call for an ambulance as a precaution but they are fine. Everything is fine.
Neymar’s spokesperson has also confirmed it was a case of a domestic accident:
They clarified there was no assault, just a domestic accident that left Tiago’s arm badly injured. He’s still recovering. The two of them are doing well and continuing with their social distancing routines.
The romance between the two caused shockwaves in Brazil, especially as the model is reported to have been in several gay relationships before dating the footballer’s mother, including one with Neymar’s personal chef.
Footballer Neymar, gave his blessing for his mother’s relationship with Ramos back in April, telling her to ‘be happy’ in a social media post.
Neymar Santos Sr, the footballer’s father, and Goncalves’ ex-partner, is also believed to be a supporter of a new relationship.
Though the relationship has not been smooth-sailing as the duo broke-up briefly last month. As reported by the Daily Mail, pressure from Goncalves’ family following the revelation of Ramos’ homosexual past was part of the reason for the brief break-up.
Ramos is believed to have been a huge fan of the 28-year-old PSG star before dating his mother.
