Brazil and PSG star Neymar reacts to rape accusation as he denies raping a women at a Paris hotel

Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil star Neymar have precluded allegations of rape, saying he had been the casualty of a blackmail attempt by a legal advisor professing to speak to the ladies he purportedly raped.

Reports rose on Saturday through the Brazilian production UOL Sport that Neymar had held a discussion with the ladies through Instagram and, through a companion, orchestrated her to go to Paris.

It is asserted that Neymar arrived drunk in her room, the Sofitel Paris Arc de Triomphe, on May 15 before getting to be forceful and rough and after that assaulting her.

The woman, it is claimed, was left shaken by the experience and returned to Brazil on May 17. Her complaint is reported to have been filed last Friday in Sao Paulo.

A statement issued by Neymar’s management on his website said the 27-year-old forward completely rejected the allegations.

‘Although he was surprised by the news of the Police Report, the facts were already known to the Athlete and his staff, considering that a few days ago he was a victim of attempted extortion, practiced by a lawyer from the city of Sao Paulo, who, according to his version, represented the interests of the alleged victim,’ it read.

‘The athlete’s lawyers were immediately notified and have since day one taken all appropriate steps.

‘Faced with the unfortunate, illegal and outrageous event, we completely repudiate the unjust accusations and, above all, the exposure in the press of an extremely negative situation.

‘All evidence of the attempted extortion and non-rape shall be submitted to the Police Authority in a timely manner.’

The woman told police that Neymar arrived at the hotel that night ‘apparently drunk,’ and that they talked and ‘caressed’.

‘However, at some point, Neymar became aggressive, and through violence, practiced sexual intercourse against the will of the victim,’ the police report says.

The woman told police she returned home to Brazil two days later without telling French police about the alleged rape because she was ’emotionally shaken and afraid to register the facts in another country.’

Neymar’s father, Neymar Sr, earlier told local television in Brazil the accusations were a trap and that his son would publish social media conversations with his accuser, if necessary.

But it represents another blow for Neymar, who was last week stripped of the Brazil national team captaincy ahead of the Copa America tournament, with Dani Alves replacing him.

Earlier in May, Neymar was banned for three matches by the French Football Federation for hitting a fan following PSG’s defeat to Rennes in the French Cup final.

He was also reportedly involved in a dressing room fracas with his team-mates.
