The Brazilian International has denied the rape claims and said that the two continued messaging each other after the meeting in France.
Neymar further shared the private conversation and private photos of the woman to prove himself guilty.
“I’m sharing everything and the entire conversation that I had with the woman, all of our private moments,” he said. It’s necessary to open up and show this to show that nothing more really happened. What happened this day was a relationship between a man and a woman between four walls, something that happens with all couples. Nothing was wrong the next day and we continued to exchange messages,” Neymar said.
