It has been reported that Brazilian superstar and ex-footballer, Ronaldinho is reportedly set to marry two women at the same time.
The Brazilian ace could tie the knot in August with his two ‘fiancees’ Priscilla Coelho and Beatriz Souza. The two women are said to have been living ‘harmoniously’ with the former Barcelona star since December at his £5million Rio de Janeiro mansion.
Ronaldinho, who is claimed to be “adept at polygamy”, started dating Beatriz in 2016 but continued his relationship with Priscilla, which began several years earlier.
The women reportedly receive an “allowance” of around £1,500 from the footballer to spend as they wish.
And it is claimed he always gives the two the exact same presents, including recently buying them matching perfume during a trip abroad together.
Former World Player of the Year Ronaldinho asked both for their hand 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 a columnist from Brazil’s O Dia newspaper.
The star’s sister, Deisi, who is against her brother’s polygamy, has already said she won’t be attending, according to Dias.
Brazilian singer Jorge Vercillo, who is Ronaldinho’s neighbour, has reportedly been confirmed as responsible for the wedding music and one of many celebrity friends who will be attending the nuptials.
Both Priscilla and Beatriz are from Belo Horizonte, the city where the footballer played with Atletico Mineiro, leading the club to its first Copa Libertadores title in 2012.
Although Ronaldinho has never publicly confirmed his relationship with the women, friends of the star reportedly treat them both as his fiancees, according to reports.
