Paris-Saint-Germain superstar Neymar has denied assaulting an unnamed woman in an hotel in Paris on May 15 claiming that he is a victim of an extortion attempt.
The name of Neymar has been drawn to public attentions over the weekend when a Brazilian lady alleged that she was being assaulted by Neymar in Paris.
It was reported that Neymar paid for the flight of the lady from Brazil to Paris for them to see before the woman claimed that the footballer got drunk and assaulted her.
Neymar says he met the woman at the hotel, but contests the serious claims from the unnamed woman who is protected by victim anonymity.

"I'm being charged of r*pe and it's a very strong thing, but it's what's happening right now.
“I was taken by surprise. It was very bad, very sad to hear that. You know my character, you know what I mean, you know I would never do something like that.
“But I've been exposed to it and I'm here to make a face of it, because I know that any news with my name involves a lot of things, it makes a very loud noise, and everybody keeps wanting my statement, and what happened was totally the opposite of what they say.
“From now on I will expose everything, I will expose all the conversation I had with the girl, all our moments, which are intimate, but it is necessary to be open, it is necessary to expose to prove that nothing really happened at all,'' Neymar explained on social media.
