According to Brazilian publication Globo Esporte, Manchester United winger Antony has been accused of engaging in acts of “domestic violence, threat, and bodily injury” by a former partner in his home country of Brazil.
Gabriela Cavallin, who was in a relationship with the 23-year-old forward in 2022, has reportedly filed a police report in Sao Paulo.
Cavallin alleges that Antony assaulted her on May 20, which coincided with Antony’s participation in a Premier League match against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.
The report mentions the existence of “photos of abrasions and threatening messages,” and Cavallin is said to have discussed previous instances of aggressive behavior by Antony.
In light of these allegations, Cavallin is urging Brazilian authorities to take immediate action to protect her while further evidence in the case is collected.
Globo Esporte also reveals that Antony had a relationship with the same woman throughout 2022. In June 2022, Cavallin shared on social media that she had experienced a miscarriage while she and Antony were expecting their first child.
As of now, neither Antony, his representatives, nor Manchester United have issued any comments regarding the allegations.
