Brazilian soccer star Neymar Dos Santos Jr has publicly apologized for cheating on his pregnant partner Bruna Biancardi.
The Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) player’s apology comes after reports claimed that he had been having affairs with other women behind Bruna’s back.
He was reportedly “exposed in a chat with a lover on Valentine’s Day,” and was also seen with his ex-girlfriend Bruna Marquezine in Miami last year.
Neymar posted a long message on Instagram admitting that he made a mistake and that he wanted to try to make their relationship work.
“Bru. I do this for both of you and your family. Justify the unjustifiable. No need to. But I need you in OUR lives
“I saw how much you were exposed, how much you suffered with all of this, and how much you want to be by my side. And I stand beside you.
“I did wrong with you all. I risk saying I’m wrong every day, on and off the pitch. Only I solve my mistakes in personal life at home, in my intimacy with my family and friends…
“All of this hit one of the most special people in my life. The woman I dreamed of following beside me, mother of my child.
Has it touched his family, which is my family today. She touched her intimacy in such a special moment that is maternity,” he wrote.
The 31-year-old then explained why he decided to apologize publicly although he had already apologized privately.
“Bru, I already apologized for my mistakes, for unnecessary exposure, but I feel obligated to come publicly reaffirm that. If a private matter has become public, the apology has to be public.
“Can’t imagine without you. I don’t know if we’ll work out, but TODAY you’re sure I want to try.
“Our purpose will prevail, our love for our baby will win, our love for each other will make us stronger.
‘ALWAYS US. I love you ❤️.’
According to Em Off, Neymar and Bruna have an ‘agreement’ that allows him to ‘be free to flirt and even have sex with other women despite his commitment to Biancardi.
The agreement states that Neymar ‘must be discreet’ with his outside relationship, ‘must wear a condom’, and ‘not kiss them on the mouth’ during intimacy with ‘other women’.
Neymar and Bruna are believed to have started dating in 2021 and went public in January 2022 via an Instagram post.
In April 2023, they announced that they are expecting their first child together.
Neymar is already a father of his 12-year-old son, Davi Lucca who he shares with his ex-girlfriend and social media personality Carolina Dantas.
The Brazilian is currently recovering from a long-term injury as he hopes to be ready for pre-season ahead of 2023/2024.
Nermar’s future at PSG is currently uncertain as reports claim the player is open to a return to Spanish giants Barcelona.
