Once crowned as the epitome of one of the most powerful couples within the colliding world of sports and fashion, The news of Brazilian soccer player Neymar, 31, and model girlfriend Bruna Biancardi, 28, calling off their relationship only a month after their daughter’s birth comes as a major shock.
Their whirlwind romance captured the public’s attention when they announced they were dating in early 2022, followed by a brief split that summer before reconciling and eventually welcoming baby girl Mavie together. However, as with any high-profile relationship, their decision to part ways has ignited curiosity about the reasons behind their breakup.
It was Biancardi who went public through her Instagram Stories, which have now disappeared, and announced that she and her boyfriend Neymar had split after almost a year of being a couple and only one month of being parents to their child. The model addressed the status of her relationship in a short message shared with her 9.2 million followers out of the blue on Wednesday morning.
As per PEOPLE, Bruna’s message, translated from Portuguese, reads:
“This is a private matter, but as I deal with news, assumptions, and jokes every day, I inform you that I am not in a relationship.” The model continued by saying, “We are Mavie’s parents, and that is the reason for our bond.” Biancardi finished her message by saying she hopes this announcement will keep her out of the news from now on. “Thanks ,” she concluded.

The reason for the break has been fueled by many ongoing rumors being spread online, with one stating that the split comes days after Neymar was accused of sending X-rated messages to a Brazilian OnlyFans model, Aline Farias, which were shared by Farias on social media and went viral in no time. As per TMZ, the soccer player has strongly denied any wrongdoing in the case by clarifying himself on his social media page that the leaked DMs were from “years ago.”
Even though Bruna has confirmed the breakup, Neymar has yet to make any official statement.
However, he shared an update on Instagram about an injury he picked during a FIFA World Cup qualifier against Uruguay earlier in October as he was taken off in tears on a stretcher at the end of the first half, following an awkward landing after a challenge. He would confirm later that he had ruptured his ACL and meniscus completely in his left knee and would need to undergo surgery, likely ruling him out for the remainder of the 2023–24 campaign, “Everything passes 🙏”

On the other hand, this is not the first time that Neymar has been accused of being unfaithful. Back in June, the Paris Saint-Germain forward, who also shares 12-year-old son Davi Lucca with his ex-girlfriend model-influencer Carolina Dantas, took to Instagram and wrote a lengthy apology by addressing cheating rumors with well-known influencer Fernanda Campos by apologizing to Bruna and his 216 million Instagram followers by explaining why he was going public with his actions.
The translated message by Neymar, who is a forward for Al Hilal, a Saudi Pro League club, as well as the Brazil national team addressed to Bruna reads as follows:
“I do this for both you and our family. Justifying the Unjustified. I didn’t need to. But I need you in OUR life. 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 will stand by your side, Errei. Wrong with you guys. I’m safe to say I’m wrong every day, on and off the pitch.”
He continued, “I just solve my personal mistakes at home, in my privacy with my family and friends… All of this has gone to one of the most special people in my life. The woman I dreamed of following by my side, the mother of my child. Hitting his family ,which today is my family. She reached her intimacy at a moment so special that is motherhood. Bru, I already apologized for my mistakes, for unnecessary exposure, but I feel obligated to come and reaffirm that publicly.”
He concluded the message by stating, “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 sure want to try. Our purpose will prevail, our love for our baby will win, and our love for each other will strengthen us. ALWAYS US. Te amo ❤️”
