While still a legend on the soccer field, Ronaldinho has denied the report that he will marry two women at the same time in August.
“I’m not going to get married, it is the biggest lie,” he told SporTV on Thursday.
Ronaldinho is a legend.
His formative years with the Paris Saint-Germain and Barca soccer teams revolutionized the sport and he was paid handsomely for it. He retired earlier this year, but now we know how he’s keeping busy: his two (almost) wives.
According to The Sun, the 38-year-old athlete is set to wed his two fiancées, Priscilla Coelho and Beatriz Souza, in August. The trio is said to have been living harmoniously in his Rio De Janeiro mansion since December. Within the relationship, Ronaldinho is said to give both women about 1,500 euros a month to do whatever they want. The footballer supposedly met Priscilla years ago, and when he was still with her, he started a relationship with Beatriz.
Both women have received engagement rings with the nuptials set to go down in the Barra da Tijuca district of Rio. Coelho and Souza are both said to be from Belo Horizonte, which is where Ronaldinho played with Atletico Mineiro and where led the club to its first Copa Libertadores title in 2012.
Ronaldinho isn’t the first athlete to juggle two women at once, Los Angeles Clippers guard Lou Williams did the same. He even talked about it with Sports Illustrated a few months ago and revealed that he likely isn’t the first basketball player to do so.
“I hear about it every day. Every single day. More players do that than you know. I was just the first person to have it mentioned on a song,” he told Sports Illustrated.
Williams ultimately decided to stick to one girl now, but he did manage to have Drake create a song in his honor.
