Twenty-year-old Gabriella Lenzi will be cheering for her new superstar boyfriend, Neymar, this summer at the World Cup. The Brazilian supermodel is a Sao Paulo native, and has already been spotted posing for photographers in Barcelona… or maybe she’s just there to support her handsome beau.
1. She and Neymar Haven’t Publicly Admitted Their Relationship
Rumors that these two were dating started early last month, and Gabriella has since been spotted roaming the streets with other WAGs. Is this suggestive of her romance with Neymar? Probably. Lucky her, since Neymar is currently the world’s seventh richest soccer star.
Mid-Day reports that Lenzi recently traveled to Camp Nou in Barcelo for a photo shoot. The two have yet to be seen together in Brazil, but it’s only a matter of time before the paparazzi hunts them down.
2. She Has More Than 404,000 Followers on Instagram
Like Neymar’s former girlfriend, Bruna Marquezine, Lenzi really likes taking selfies– whether it be at the gym, at the beach, or in an elevator. Before Marquezine, the soccer superstar dated 20-year-old Carolina Dantas, who is the mother of his son, David Lucca de Silva.

Lenzi is currently the face of DF Model agency, and is studying fashion at Fundacao Amanda Alvares Penteado (FAAP) in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
3. She’s a Swimmer and Gymnast
The 5 ft 9 in model’s Instagram is filled with fitness pictures. It seems like the fit brunette spends her time in the gym when she’s not posing for photographers. Multiple sources report that gymnastics and swimming are her main exercises that help her stay fit.
4. She’s Caught Esquire’s Eye
5. There’s A Lot of Pressure on Gabriella To Help Neymar’s Game
Multiple sources have indicated the immense pressure football fans have been placing on Lenzi. While Neymar is famous for being one of the best players in the game, his playing has recently been subpar- this most likely has something to do with a transfer scandal about the payment to his dad. Fanshare writes,
The big question that she is going to be faced with is can she make him happy and get him back to scoring goals for his club team Barcelona so that he will be ready to lead the Brazilian football team to victory.
