It was previously reported that representatives of Cavallin have compiled an extensive 70-page report detailing her reported experiences during her relationship with the Brazilian player.
According to lawyer Vanessa Souza, Antony could potentially face accountability for three distinct offenses in England, including sending threatening messages, confining her in a residence, and causing injuries through domestic violence.
Recently, new evidence emerged when a Brazilian account posted WhatsApp messages allegedly containing threatening content from the Manchester United player, along with purported images of Cavallin displaying wounds on her head and hands.
As a consequence, the 23-year-old has been excluded from the most recent Brazil squad. Simultaneously, Manchester United issued a statement emphasizing their commitment to treating the matter seriously and noted that a police investigation is currently underway.
Furthermore, it appears that the player himself has now commented on the accusations, with quotes circulating on social media and multiple accounts posting on X.
Regarding the incident, he purportedly mentioned:
“I expressed my intention to leave and explained my obligations. In response, she angrily threw plates and cups on the ground. I held her to try and calm the situation without causing harm.”
