Neymar, the Brazilian forward who plays for Paris Saint-Germain, has publicly apologized to his girlfriend, Bruna Biancardi, following reports of infidelity.
The couple, who have been dating since 2021, announced their pregnancy earlier this year and expressed their excitement about starting a family.
In his lengthy apology posted on Instagram, Neymar acknowledged the pain and suffering caused by the recent reports and expressed his commitment to Bruna and their unborn child.
He admitted to making mistakes and emphasized his desire to make things right and be a supportive partner and father.
He wrote: “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.”
Neymar added: “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.
“Bru, I already apologised 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.”
He ended the message by saying: “ALWAYS US. I love you ❤️.”
