“Márcia, Kely, Edinho, Jennifer, Joshua, Celeste, family (children of the heart), grandchildren, nephews, Lucia… be less heavy… Márcia, may God give you the lap you need”, he wrote.

The two met in 1980, when Xuxa was 17 years old, and he, 41, after posing together in a photo shoot for a cover of the extinct magazine “Manchete”. In an interview with the podcast “Papagaio Falante”, in April, she said that the relationship between the two was not smooth and that the player had a “double personality”.

“He was from 17 to 23. He has a split personality, speaks in the third person. I fell in love with Dico (nickname), who was passionate, he was family. (…) But sometimes (he) arrived with a shirt stained with lipstick It said: ‘these women keep wanting to grab Pelé’. I was very young. It wasn’t easy at all”, she vented during the interview.
