Alleged footage of a man, who is believed to be Neymar, being beaten by a woman, who is said to be Najila Trindade Mendes de Souza, the woman who claims that the football superstar raped her in Paris last year, has just surfaced online.
Leaked footage of Neymar getting hit by the woman that accused him of raping her. This is absolutely shocking. pic.twitter.com/VTSa5GSBsE— FutbolBible (@FutbolBible) 6 июня 2019 г.
Neymar: I don’t wanna be beaten.— FutbolBible (@FutbolBible) 6 июня 2019 г.
Girl: Then you'll hit me..
Neymar: No, no I do not like it, no.
Girl: But I'm going to hit you! Do you know why? Because yesterday you attacked me and left me here alone!
Neymar: Don’t do that! Calm down. Wait a second! Calm down.
In the video, apparently filmed on a secret camera, the man can be heard saying, “No, no, no, do not hit me, no”, while the woman is yelling, “But I’m going to hit you. Do you know why? Because yesterday you attacked me and left me here alone!”
While the authenticity of the footage is yet to be verified, many social media users have come to the conclusion that the entire incident was a “setup” and that the woman was trying to provoke him to hit her back and then cut the video to show only that part:
Always knew Neymar was innocent. Now lock that bitch up for the rest of her life. pic.twitter.com/uAA2gyjXfL— Nemesis™ (@Moriarxty) 6 июня 2019 г.
Have to feel for Neymar. This video shows he was clearly set up by the girl. pic.twitter.com/F3nNMUGJqq— Football Unlimited (@FootballUnlimi1) 6 июня 2019 г.
The translation proves she was trying to get Neymar to hit her back on video. She tried to ruin Neymar’s life and career and she can just walk away from this without punishment. https://t.co/mSWdmXESNm— ♕ (@PuIisicEra) 6 июня 2019 г.
The plan was that he was going to retaliate and hit her too, so that she could then cut the video and show only the part where he hits her.— Vlad (@8Paolo8) 6 июня 2019 г.
this one just wants to ruin Neymar's career....— Emmy_Walker (@Emmyzuel) 6 июня 2019 г.
She set it up hoping he'd retaliate so she could edit the footage and make it look like he attacked her.— Dean (@ArsenalNexus) 6 июня 2019 г.
Just an hour before Neymar was set to enter the pitch for a friendly match between Brazil’s national team and Qatar in Brasilia on Thursday, excerpts of a televised interview with Trindade were broadcast on the network SBT.
“It was aggression together with rape”, the alleged victim said in the interview, which will air on Monday.
The accuser, who works as a model, admitted that she liked Neymar and wanted to have sex with him, but says that the situation changed after their first meeting at a Paris hotel – as the footballer paid for a plane ticket to bring her from Brazil to the French capital.
“He was aggressive, totally different than the boy I got to know on the messages. Since I really wanted to be with him I said, OK, I’m going to try to handle this”, she went on to claim, adding that after some kissing, “he started to hit me… then he began to hurt me a lot, and I asked him to stop because it hurt”.
Trindade said that the footballer apologised but purportedly continued hurting her while they had sex.
According to Trindade, the footballer was drunk and aggressive, and purportedly forced her to have sex with him against her will. She claimed that she was in shock so didn’t turn to the police at the time.
Meanwhile, Neymar took to social media over the weekend with a now-deleted seven-minute video to strongly deny Trindade’s allegations and insist on his innocence.
“I’m accused of rape. It is a heavy word, it is something very strong, but that what’s happening now. I was caught by surprise, it was very bad and very sad to listen to that, because anyone who knows me, knows of my behaviour, knows that I would never do something like that. What happened that day was a relationship between a man and a woman, inside four walls, something that happens with any couple”, the footballer said, adding that it was a “setup”.
Neymar’s father, for his part, claimed that his son was the victim of a blackmail attempt, but that he “will push for justice to be served as quickly as possible”.
Following the publication of those images and messages in the video, which was deleted both by Instagram and Facebook over policy violations, Neymar is now facing a police probe in Brazil for releasing the woman’s intimate photos without her consent.
“He didn’t have a choice. He preferred to commit an internet crime than be accused of rape”, his father said.
In a parallel development, Trindade has threatened to make public the video of the alleged sexual attack in a bid to destroy Neymar’s career, the Daily Mail reported, adding that the accuser allegedly said that she “should have killed the player when she had the chance”.
