Brazil Star Hulk Has Bizarrely 'Left His Wife For Her Niece'

Brazil star Hulk has bizarrely been in a relationship with his niece following the end of his marriage.

Hulk, real name Givanildo Vieira de Sousa, is currently playing for Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG.

The 33-year-old reportedly split with his wife Iran back in July after 12 years together.

The couple also have three children together but it's not stopped Hulk from entering a relationship with her niece-in-law Camila.

However, the former Porto man's representatives have spoken out and defiantly defended the pairing.

They told UOL Esporte per Daily Star: "It's in his position to be transparent, to avoid lies and malicious comments.

"Remember the Brazilian's marriage ended in July and Camila was also separated for many months."


Camila was reportedly Iran's 'favourite niece' and took to social media to explain herself.

Per The Sun, she wrote:

"Aunt Iran, I first want to tell you that this message is not an explanation or justification of anything.

"I needed to tell you some things that unfortunately circumstances do not allow me to say personally.

"Although it is irrelevant to you now, I love you very much and care about you, so I am speaking here.

"I really want you to know things that maybe everyone will talk about differently, mere speculation, but I don't really judge them because outsiders know absolutely nothing and most of the time just want the situation to be worse.

"It's been very hard to face all this, but I wouldn't do it if it wasn't true."

She has since deleted her social media accounts following the backlash.

Iran has also had her say on her ex-husband's new relationship as the saga rages on.

She told UOL columnist Leo Dias: "It is deeply regretted that Mr Hulk, not content with ending a marriage of more than 12 years, he then did not respect the pain of the one who always devoted love, affection, respect and consideration to him - as well as his children, whose supreme interests should be preserved by their father. "

It's certainly a bizarre and unique story.
