A Brazilian model was reportedly tricked by Tottenham Hotspur striker Richarlison’s doppelganger into spending a night in bed with her.
Brazilian video editor Andre Noruega reported the bizarre incident, saying that the model named Tina made the remarks on the reality TV show Big Brother Brasil. He tweeted that she claimed to have spent a night with the Brazil international at Carnaval:
“Brazilian model Tina said on Big Brother Brasil that she spent an intimate night with Richarlison during Carnaval.”
However, the Spurs frontman allegedly denies having been in Brazil at the time, pointing the finger in the direction of his doppelganger, who has now admitted that it was he who had bedded the model:
“Richarlison denied having been in Brazil at the time. Richarlison’s doppelganger (does paid appearances as him) has later confirmed it was him sharing bed with her.”
Brazilian football stars’ doppelgangers have been causing issues over the last year. Neymar Jr.’s doppelganger caused mischief at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, where he pretended to be the PSG forward and took snaps with fans and media.
Meanwhile, at the time of the reported incident, Richarlison may have been in England, playing for Tottenham Hotspur following his £60 million move from Everton last summer.
He has struggled at the north London club, netting just two goals and contributing four assists in 27 games across competitions. The Selecao striker fared much better at the World Cup, bagging three goals and an assist in four games.
His doppelganger seems to be living off the Tottenham forward’s meteoric rise and has pulled off a remarkable stunt.
Richarlison withdraws from Brazil squad for friendly against Morocco due to injury
Richarlison was handed a rare start by Antonio Conte in Tottenham’s 3-3 draw with Southampton on Saturday (March 18). However, the Brazilian picked up a knock and was forced off in tears in just the fifth minute.
He was forced to withdraw from Brazil’s squad for their friendly with Morocco on Saturday (March 25). He may have looked forward to the break from his club’s recent woes.
A return date for the Brazilian is yet to be disclosed, but he could also be set to miss Spurs’ clash with Everton on Monday (April 3). He may also not be risked for their tussle with fellow top-six contenders Brighton & Hove Albion five days later. The game with Bournemouth on April 15 seems a more plausible return date for the player.
