Football legend Ronaldinho is to marry TWO women at the same time, according to reports in Brazil. The 38-year-old Samba ace will reportedly tie the knot in August with his pair of “fiancees”, Priscilla Coelho and Beatriz Souza. The two women have been living “harmoniously” with the former Barcelona star since December at his £5million Rio de Janeiro mansion, according to reports.
Ronaldinho started dating Beatriz in 2016, but is said to have continued his relationship with Priscilla, which began several years earlier. According to reports, both lovers receive an “allowance” of around £1,500 from the footballer to spend as they wish. He also reportedly always gives the two the exact same presents, including recently buying them the same perfume during a trip abroad together. Former World Player of the Year Ronaldinho asked both for their hands in marriage in January last year and gave them both engagement rings, according to Brazilian columnist Leo Dias.
He will marry the two women at a private ceremony inside the Santa Monica condominium, in the upmarket Barra da Tijuca district in Rio, where he has lived since 2015, according to the columnist, from Brazil’s O Dia newspaper. According to reports, everything was fine until ex-girlfriend Juliana Diniz, who the footballer dated in 2011, showed up. He also travels with both women to almost every event he attends.
In March this year, during a trip to Japan with his samba music band, he posted photos a video of himself with both women to his $32 million followers of his Instagram page. They also travelled with him to the Brazilian capital Brasilia a week later, where the footballer, who is believed to be considering a career in politics like fellow footballer Romario, joined centre-right party the Brazilian Republican Party (PRB).Showbiz insider Leo Dias claimed that the climate became frosty as Priscilla and Beatriz didn’t hide their jealousy of the woman.
