Paris Saint Germain forward, Neymar took to his Instagram story to post pictures of himself and Brazilian skateboarder, Leticia Bufoni, hanging out at Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.
In one of the pictures, Neymar and Leticia Bufoni posed in front of the Eiffel Tower. The Brazilian footballer rested his right hand on the skateboarder’s shoulder with his tongue stretched out to give his usual stylish gesture.
Neymar wrote “Love U” with a love emoji on the picture and tagged the Brazilian skateboarder. The Instagram post has left many wondering whether he is in a relationship with Leticia Bufoni or just a harmless show of love between two stars from the same country.
To further make it look like what Neymar has for Leticia Bufoni was more than just a countryman admiring his compatriot, the footballer’s photographer, Gilce Bola, took to his Instagram story and share a picture of Neymar hanging out with Bufoni at the Eiffel Tower.
In the picture, the two Brazilians were seen sited around the premises of the Eiffel Tower. The football star held a bottle of Red Bull while he chilled with the skater.
This is not the first time Neymar was seen hanging out with Bufoni. In 2019, pictures of the two Brazilians hanging out in a holiday resort went viral and no strings were attached to it.
Who is Leticia Bufoni?
Leticia Bufoni is a female skateboarder who has been skating since he was 14-year-old. Just like Neymar, she is from Brazil and she always represents the country in international skateboarding events.
Leticia Bufoni has won six X Games Gold Medals and one SLS Super Crown championship. The 28-year-old Brazilian skateboarder is regarded as “one of the most dominant female skateboarders in the world.”
Bufoni represented Brazil in the just concluded Tokyo Olympic Games where she won the hearts of many even though she did not win a gold model.
What was Leticia Bufoni doing with Neymar in Paris
Leticia Bufoni is in Paris for business. She is representing Brazil in the Red Bull Paris Conquest championship which started this week.
Neymar decided to visit the Brazilian skateboarder at the venue of the Red Bull Paris Conquest championship which is at the Eiffel Tower.
Bufoni is participating in the street tournament alongside 36 skaters, 12 of which are women while the other 24 are men. Among the 36 skaters, 6 are from Brazil including Leticia Bufoni.
Is Leticia Bufoni dating Neymar?
It is not clear whether Neymar and Leticia Bufoni are in any form of relationship but the pictures he and the Brazilian skater snapped at the Eiffel Tower came with a lot of reasons to suspect that something special is going on between them.
Both Neymar and Bufoni have been pictured together a couple of times especially in 2019. Their meeting in Paris earlier in the week is their first public meeting this year.
As at last check, Neymar who has had a couple of broken relationships in the past is in a relationship with Croatian-Cuban model Natalia Barulich.
The two lovers who are age mates have been dating since early 2020. Natalia is said to be the former girlfriend of Colombian singer Maluma.
At the time of publishing this report, there was no report about the break up of Neymar’s relationship with Natalia. Hence, the pictures Neymar took with Bufoni could be just a friendly affair.
