Neymar cancels large party after receiving backlash


PSG striker Neymar has apparently cancelled the star-studded New Year’s Eve bash he had reportedly organised.

The footballer received major backlash after it was made public that he was hosting a 500 guests party that would span five days.

Brazilian newspapers reported the 28-year-old had organised the large party at a rented mansion near his luxury home in the paradise resort of Mangaratiba near Rio de Janeiro. He did this, despite the restrictions in place by the country to contain the spread of coronavirus.

According to reports, Brazilian prosecutors launched an investigation to determine how it breached the country’s pandemic safety measures.
