Neymar Ditches Prestigious Soccer Awards To Party With Rihanna


Soccer superstar Neymar was left with two choices this past weekend. On one hand, the sports legend could attend a major European soccer award show where his Paris Saint-Germain teammate, Kylian Mbappe, would be honored for his impressive streak this season. And on the other, he could blow it all off and hang-out with the Bajan boss lady, Rihanna. Indubitably, the answer here goes without saying. 

According to TMZ, the 27-year-old athlete was expected at the prestigious awards show known as the Union Nationale des Footballeurs Professionnels (UNFP) Football Awards Ceremony in Paris. Though Neymar found it best to turn up at the Boum Boum nightclub in Paris with Rihanna instead. After all, who turns out an invite from badgalriri? The latter was in celebration of the songstress/entrepreneur launching her new luxury fashion brand

Proof of the soccer star’s decision was retrieved from social media as Neymar posted a photo with the caption “Queen and powerful woman 👑🤫 @badgalriri.” And while Neymar attending would have been nice, Mbappe was still honored for a successful season this year. Precisely, the youngster was given accolades and won both the Ligue 1 Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards.
