Neymar: PSG Star Denies Rape Allegations

Neymar is currently preparing for the Copa America

Brazilian superstar, Neymar, has been accused of raping a woman in Paris on May 15. The PSG forward has denied the accusation.

According to a leaked police report, which was filed in Sao Paulo, it is alleged that Neymar attacked a woman in a hotel room in the French capital city of Paris.

The 27-year-old megastar is currently with Brazil preparing for the Copa America on June 14. However, the Paris Saint-Germain forward attempted to prove his innocence by posting what he alleges is a WhatsApp exchange between the pair.

The leaked police documents suggest the unnamed woman first encountered Neymar on Instagram and he later suggested they meet in Paris. Neymar allegedly provided her with a flight ticket and hotel reservation in the French capital.

The leaked police report states that “at some point, Neymar became aggressive, and through violence, engaged in sexual intercourse against the will of the victim.”

Following the accusations, Neymar’s management dismissed them as unjust, stating that the footballer had been the “victim of an attempted extortion” and “evidence of attempted extortion and non-rape will be submitted to the police authorities.”

Neymar took the unusual step of posting a seven-minute video to Instagram to address the allegations before posting what he claims to be a WhatsApp conversation between himself and the alleged victim.

The PSG star has also recently been involved in a series of unrelated disciplinary incidents with his club that have resulted in him being stripped of the captaincy and a three-match ban.
