How did Bruna Marquezine and Neymar meet?
The pair began dating after being introduced to each other at Rio Carnival in 2012.
They split up in 2013, but they were officially back together before the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
After breaking up and reuniting again in 2016, the pair split up again before the striker left Barcelona.
Why did Neymar and Bruna Marquezine break up?
There were a number of rumours on why the pair broke up, with everything from cheat allegations to politics.
Neymar is believed to have voted for Brazil’s staunchly right wing president Jair Bolsonaro, while Bruno is a vocal supporter of the opposition Workers’ Party.
But in an interview with Vogue, Bruna simply said:
Bruna revealed: “We are finished.
“It was his decision. I am going to ask that this issue isn’t prolonged because normally I don’t speak about my personal life.
“I have a lot of respect and affection for him and for everything we went through together.
“I just want to clear this point up, because we are living through a critical and dangerous time, a time with a lot of hate and no, the breakup had nothing to do with that [politics].”
