Brazil’s Football Legend Roberto Carlos sentenced to jail for 3months due to Child support debts



Brazilian legend, Roberto Carlos, has been sentenced to three months
in jail in Brazil for delays in paying more than £15,000 in child

The former Real Madrid star owes the money to former partner Barbara
Thurler, who he has two kids with, and as a result, he was given a jail
sentence by the Rio de Janeiro courts.

According to Brazilian media, the World Cup winner and father of nine
children claimed financial problems to justify the delay of payment to
his ex and had wanted to pay the money in installments.

Judge Mayane de Castro said the family rejected a proposal by the
44-year-old to pay the sum in instalments. But the Samba legend’s lawyer
Fernando Pittner said the matter would be resolved without Carlos
serving time.

Roberto Carlos who recently welcomed his ninth child with current
wife Mariana Lucon, is Real Madrid’s ambassador in Asia and Oceania.
