Football legend Ronaldinho has opened up on reports he is to marry two women at the same time. Reports in Brazil suggested the former Barcelona star, 38, will tie the know with his two fiancees in August this year. Ronaldinho has reportedly been living “harmoniously” with both Priscilla Coelho and Beatriz Souza at his £5million Rio de Janeiro mansion since December.
The Brazil legend was in the West Zone of the city on Thursday for the launch of his R10 brand and he rebuffed the claims.
“The whole world is calling me,” he told SporTV when asked about the reports.
“I’m not going to get married, it is the biggest lie.”
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 on Thursday.
The same story claimed he would 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.
