Neymar responds to claims by Nike he sexually assaulted an employee
There is news about Brazilian football superstar Neymar.
According to reports, Nike cut ties with Neymar in 2020 after a Nike employee said the soccer superstar sexually assaulted her in 2016.
Neymar has denied the allegations but was dropped after refusing to participate in an investigation.
Neymar took to his official Instagram account to give his thoughts on the game.
He said, “Facts can be distorted because people see them from different angles. We cannot deny that life is like this. It’s part of it! I even understand when someone criticizes my conduct, my way of playing and living life. We are different! I really don’t understand how a serious company can distort a business relationship that is supported by documents. Written words cannot be modified. They are very clear. Leave no doubt!
Since I was 13 years old, when I signed my first contract, I was always warned: don’t talk about your contracts! Contracts are confidential! Contrary to this rule and claim that my contract was terminated because I did not contribute in good faith to an investigation, this is absurd, a liar. Once again I am warned that I cannot comment in public. Outraged I will obey!
But the WSL story is very clear. In 2016 it seems that they already knew about this event. I did not know! In 2017 I traveled again to the USA for an advertising campaign, with the same people, nothing was told, nothing changed! In 2017, 2018, 2019 we made trips, campaigns, countless recording sessions. And they told me nothing. A matter of such seriousness and they did nothing. Who are truly responsible?
I was not given the opportunity to defend myself. I was not given the opportunity to know who this person was who was offended. I don’t even know her. I’ve never had a relationship. I didn’t even have a chance to talk, to know the real reasons for his pain. That person, an employee, was not protected. I, a sponsored athlete, was not protected. Until when?
Irony of fate I will continue to stamp a mark on my chest that betrayed me. This is the life! I remain firm and strong, believing that time, always this cruel time, will bring the true answers.
Faith in God!”
