BREAKING FAKE NEWS! PSG superstar Neymar celebrated his 26th birthday in Paris on Sunday with a glitzy bash mixing teammates, friends, family and other various VIPs. Held at Pavilion Cambon in the French capital’s first arrondissement, PSG teammates Edinson Cavani, captain Thiago Silva, Kylian Mbappe, Dani Alves, Kevin Trapp, Giovani Lo Celso and Hatem Ben Arfa were among those present.
The Ligue 1 leaders were also represented by chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi, sporting director Antero Henrique, coach Unai Emery and team coordinator Maxwell. Away from PSG, Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus, Fulham’s Lucas Piazon, Marseille’s Luiz Gustavo and Lille’s Thiago Maia were all spotted at the event.
Moreover, TV personalities, poker players and stars of Brazil’s edition of reality show Big Brother all joined the party. Popular French entertainer DJ Snake performed alongside Brazilian singer Rodriguinho, Maluma and DJ Alok.
Dinner was laid on for almost 200 guests before the Brazilian artists were followed by a BMX show and breakdancing. As midnight neared, Neymar was presented with various gifts, as well as a video message from his son, Davi Lucca da Silva Santos, which reportedly reduced him to tears.
But the best moment of the night came when Al-Khelaifi introduced the present he bought for Ney: a Bengal tiger of 300kg. PSG’s president payed more than $100.000 for it, and called him Edinson, like Cavani. After seeing this kind of beast, Davi Lucca asked for a new underwear, because he peed himself.
“Kylian Mbappe tried to feed Edinson with a piece of pizza, but the big fella didn’t follow Donatello’s diet”
Then, Nasser showed everyone his skills as a feline trainer, which was his former occupation before starting playing tennis and earning millions as a football chairman. After that, Kylian Mbappe tried to feed Edinson with a piece of pizza, but the big fella didn’t follow Donatello’s diet.
From now on, Neymar is gonna spend a huge weekly budget buying meat. Buffalo, wild pigs and antelope are the main diet of adult tigers, and they need eat a minimum of 30kg (5000 kcal) daily for up to 20 years. We’ll see if the Brazilian allows Edinson to kick the penalties at home! I love FAKE NEWS. Peace and tigers!
