Neymar is not on the newspapers’ covers only when he does well on the field, but also when he is seen living his personal life. Recently, it was discovered that Cuban-Croatian model Natalia Barulich was involved with him while she was going out with Colombian singer Juan Luis Londoño Arias, commonly known as Maluma.
It was even reported that the lyrics of Hawai, one of Maluma’s latest hits, were written on the story of her cheating on him. Meanwhile, Neymar and Barulich just looked away. They never spoke publicly about it. It was also suspected that the relationship did not exist and it was just a marketing strategy by the model’s agents to launch her career in music.
Meanwhile, Maluma never stopped having fun with lots of women around the globe. He has been one of the most successful Spanish-speaking artists in the last couple of years, and he has lots of fans and admirers in Latin America too. Pretty much like Neymar, who we can consider the most successful Portuguese-speaking soccer player nowadays alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.
Less than a month ago, Natalia Barulich spoke in public after her 29th birthday. Then, she commented on her relationship with Neymar and left everybody speechless. She mentioned it was the greatest prank of all time. Neither Maluma nor Neymar referred to it, but for all the people who admires them, it can be a relief or a disappoint.
