Brazil striker Hulk blasted for leaving his wife of 12 years to date her niece

Former Brazil international Hulk has reportedly been dating the niece of his wife following the end of their marriage.

Hulk, real name Givanildo Vieira de Sousa, is currently plying his trade with Shanghai SIPG in China.

The 33-year-old split from his wife Iran in July 2019 after 12 years together.

The couple have three children together, sons Ian, 10 and Tiago, 8, and daughter Alice 6.

His representatives confirmed he has been dating his former niece-in-law Camila since October, who has since been forced to delete her social media accounts.

Hulk reportedly “made the information public”, insisting he “doesn’t have anything to hide.”

A representative for the player told UOL Esporte: “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.”

The spokesman said Hulk told his family and children about the relationship and, on the same day, called Camila's parents and brother.

The couple spent Christmas together back in Brazil in Campina Grande.
