Law student drops domestic violence allegation against Antony

One of the three women who have made claims of domestic violence against Manchester United star Antony has dropped her case.

Antony was first accused of assaulting former girlfriend Gabriela Cavallin, who alleged that the Brazilian attacked her on several occasions between June 2022 and May 2023.

Cavallin had also claimed that she required hospital treatment from the alleged assault. She also accused Antony of dislodging one of her breast implants by punching her in the chest, requiring her to undergo surgery.

Few days later, two other women came forward with claims against Antony, including law student Rayssa de Freitas, who alleged to have been injured by Antony following an assault in a car.

Rayssa de Freitas had claimed that she needed hospital treatment after being attacked by Antony and an internet personality Mallu Ohana in the backseat of Antony’s Land Rover after a night out in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo. The case has been dropped at the request of the law student.

The Telegraph has now reported that De Freitas has withdrawn the allegation against Antony, and a police report from the time has also been retracted in full.

Antony has continued to strenuously deny all the domestic violence allegations against him, and he remains on indefinite paid leave from Man United while he contests the accusations.

The Brazil international who left Sao Paulo for Ajax in 2020, has scored eight goals and provided three assists in 48 games for the Red Devils since his big-money move to Old Trafford.

Antony’s absence coincides with Jadon Sancho’s exile from the first team, as the England international has been ostracised by Erik ten Hag after publicly calling out the manager’s claims over his effort in training.
