Model Najila Trindade Mendes de Souza, who accused Neymar of rape in a Paris hotel room, has spoken publicly about the ordeal.
The incident is said to have occurred in the French capital on 15 May after the pair began talking on Instagram.
“When he arrived, everything was fine,” she stated.
“But when we went to the hotel he was aggressive, a totally different person to the one I was speaking to through messages,” Najila told SBT.
“Then began some petting and everything was fine,” before stating that everything up until that point had been consensual.
However, things quickly changed according to the model, who said that Neymar proceeded to hit her.
“Then he began to beat me,” she said.
“The first ones, ok, I accepted, but then I began to feel pain and I said: ‘Stop, it’s hurting'”.
After the player apologised, she went on to say that neither of the two had brought protection, for which she told Neymar that they could not continue.
“I asked him to stop and then he continued hitting me violently on the buttocks,” she stated.
“I turned around, everything happened so quickly, a matter of seconds.
“I insisted he stop but he was not speaking, only acting,” Najila said.
To me, I don’t think she has a point. You followed a man to an hotel and you are accusing him of rape. What do you expect?
