Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar has always been in the spotlight both for his performances on the pitch and for what he does off the field. The latest news that involved him, however, concerns his presence on the Tinder app, a famous place for "virtual encounters" used in particular to find a soul mate. Well these days a verified account in the name of Neymar has appeared on Tinder. Scandal of scandals, does the football player have to resort to these "tricks" to find his better half? Apparently not, because it was Neymar himself who amusedly denied the matter.
The Brazilian gossip page Gossipdodia on Instagram reported the news of the century. In fact, he posted a screenshot of Neymar's verified account on Tinder with the following caption: "And there we are! A follower found Neymar jr's account on Tinder. The profile has been verified. Would you like it? ". And it looked really original, complete with a profile photo of the PSG champion. The biography states that the user is 29 years old and goes by the name of N. Jr. Obviously in a few minutes the fact went viral on the web.
The footballer denies that he owns Neymar's verified account on Tinder
After all, the blue check next to Neymar's verified account on Tinder left no room for other interpretations. For the uninitiated, it means that the profile has been confirmed as true and official by the platform itself. A very useful gimmick for famous people because it is proven proof that you are following the “real” VIP and not an imposter. Nobody in this way should pretend to be someone else and damage his reputation. It should, in fact. But apparently that's not always the case.
Because, as mentioned, Neymar thought of it in first person - the real and verified one - to dampen everyone's spirits via Twitter. "I hope whoever is using my name as bait represents me well." And the Brazilian even took it philosophically, adding four smiley emoticons at the end of the Tweet. Neymar also replied to Gossipdodia's Instagram post, writing: "Whoever is using this account is certainly having fun, but unfortunately it's not me". In short, there is no verified Neymar account on Tinder, with all due respect to the many young ladies who are reading. But the mystery as to how it is possible that Tinder made such a mistake remains.
