In addressing the rape allegation leveled against the Brazil Star player, Neymar, his father who also double as his agent, Neymar da Silva Santos , has said everything is a set up.
“I prefer an internet crime than a rape crime,” Neymar da Silva Santos told TV Band. “He preserved his image, his name. He needed to defend himself quickly. It is best to be true and show what happened. We knew of the blackmailing, but not of the guts to go to police in a situation like this.”
Santos insisted Neymar was set up by the unidentified woman. He said the player noticed something was wrong on the second day the two met in Paris.
“She wanted him to go to the hotel again. He went and stayed for 10 minutes. He saw a cellphone against the wall, recharging. But then he noticed it was filming. She sent a message saying she has that video. She attacks him, he jumps to the bed and tries to calm her down. Asks her not to create a mess,” the father-agent said.
“He then calms her down, leaves the hotel and asks for her return ticket. Neymar also tried to film the conversation, but couldn’t. After that second day they didn’t speak. She sent the threatening messages later,” Santos said.
Neymar’s father said he doesn’t know when his son will speak to police about the case.
