Danilo Garcia Andrade took on Najila Trindade Mendes de Souza’s lawsuit earlier this week, and is said to want to see the content of a seven-minute video filmed during the model’s second meeting with the Brazil star in Paris.

Trindade maintains the recording, of which a few seconds have been leaked on social media, includes conclusive evidence. It formed a part of the testimony she presented to Brazilian police on Friday.

The images were filmed on a tablet device which has been stolen, according to Trindade, but the owners of the building where she lives have denied claims of a forced break-in.

According to G1, she also claims to possess other proof held in a safe.

Trindade’s original lawyers walked away from her case because she had initially filed a complaint of physical abuse and not rape.

Her testimony came a day after Neymar went to a Rio de Janeiro police station, sitting in a wheelchair after injuring his ankle in Wednesday’s friendly against Qatar which ruled him out of this year’s Copa America.
