Footie ace Robinho in rape arrest

Published: Today
BRAZILIAN soccer ace Robinho was arrested over rape claims two days after flying back from his own country.



The star had spent a week in his homeland when Manchester City bosses sent a private plane to pick him up.

British detectives had planned to speak to him after City’s training camp in Tenerife earlier this month.


Back ... Robinho arrives on Sunday after Brazil flight

But they were stunned to learn he had gone to Sao Paulo — without his club’s permission — citing “personal reasons”, believed to be his 25th birthday.

He arrived back in the UK on Sunday and had a pre-arranged meeting with officers from West Yorkshire yesterday.

Robinho, who joined City from Real Madrid in September for a British record £32.5million, was back in Manchester today after being released on bail.

He trained at his club's Carrington training complex this morning.
Reported

The rape is alleged to have happened in the early hours of January 14, in the VIP area of the Space nightclub.

It was reported to police that afternoon.

Robinho had gone to Leeds with team-mates for a night out.

The girl, a student at a Yorkshire university but from the south of England, was with pals.

The two-room venue holds around 800 people and is popular with soccer stars.





Robinho — full name Robson de Souza — earns £160,000 a week. He has a wife, Vivian, and son Robson Jnr.



Last night his spokesman Chris Nathaniel said: “He strenuously denies any allegation of wrongdoing or criminality and is happy to co-operate with the police if required further.”



City are due to host Newcastle in the Premier League tonight.

A source said: “He will be back training as normal and is expected to play.”

Manchester City refused to comment last night.

I knew about it but I thought he wasn't going to be charged, so its a no story.
Almost the same thing happened with Gerrard.

Probably is going to go and get Kobe's lawyers to torment the girl, so she drops the case.

Think about... how ridiculous is this. what kind of player would go to a nightclub and "rape" a girl... this guy isnt an idiot. i doubt he was forcing himself on her... these claims are ridiculous. those girls take advantage of stars because of their wealth...

Dude needs to pick up a few tips from United's Anderson. That guy knows how to treat a lady right.

Gurk 01-28-2009 05:56 PM

He prolly thought he was in Brazil ;)

.B e e b o.? 01-28-2009 06:28 PM

I doubt he did it....famous and rich people like him don't need to 'rape', they can get girls anytime they want.

what does being european have anything to do with this news?:confused2:

Why do ppl think that rape is about not being able to get women?? It's about power and control, one thing rich powerful crave. Get a clue.

Very true.

I remember thinking this when the whole Kobe thing went down. You could very easily see it from both sides.

#1 - Kobe sexes perfectly willing starstruck girl who then decides to go after his money as an afterthought.

or

#2 - Kobe tries to woo girl and fails, but sexes her anyway because "he's a star and it's his God-given right".


Difficult to make a clear-cut call. Safe to say though that if you absolutely DON'T want sex from a celeb you probably shouldn't allow yourself to be in a bedroom alone with them.

Acie 01-29-2009 12:06 PM

Yeah, get a clue guys.

Shame on you for not understanding the mind of a rapist.
