Nike Says It Ended Deal With Neymar Amid Investigation of Sexual Abuse



PSG and Brazil National Team player, Neymar Jr was sponsored by Nike since he was 13 and the contract was ended last year.

In 2018, a longtime employee filed a complaint to Nike saying that during a marketing tour in the US in June 2016, the woman helped Neymar, who appeared to be drunk, into his hotel room after midnight. While there, Neymar tried to force the woman to perform oral sex and blocked her from leaving the room

The company said its investigation did not reach a conclusion as to whether an assault had occurred, which was why it made no public statement at the time. And the contract was terminated because he refused to cooperate with the investigation.

Nike said:
“No single set of facts emerged that would enable us to speak substantively on the matter,” Nike said in a statement. “It would be inappropriate for Nike to make an accusatory statement without being able to provide supporting facts. Nike ended its relationship with the athlete because he refused to cooperate in a good faith investigation of credible allegations of wrongdoing by an employee.”

Neymar denies. He now has an endorsement deal with Puma.

Her $1 million donation to Vanderbilt University has contributed to the development of Moderna's vaccine - you can't save 2020 much more than that. Oh, but in case you needed another reason to love Dolly this year, she also spoke up in support of Black Lives Matter, saying, “Of course Black lives matter. Do you think our little white asses are the only ones that matter? No!” How to even sum up John Boyega's 2020? He's spoken out very publicly about his thoughts on how his role in Star Wars dwindled over the course of the trilogy, but more importantly, he spoke up even louder at a Black Lives Matter demonstration in London, making waves with his passionate speech.
