NEYMAR has cheekily taunted his girlfriend Natalia Barulich’s ex Maluma.
Flanked by his Paris Saint-Germain pals, hyped up by their victory over RB Leipzig – Neymar made the tongue in cheek dig at the Colombian singer, who used to date Barulich, through the medium of song.
Maluma, 26, recently released a song entitled “Hawai” – reportedly all about his split with Barulich last October.
But clearly unflustered by the song, Neymar, 28, and his mates appeared to mock it.
In a video posted by Angel Di Maria, Neymar and a number of his team-mates including Ander Herrera and Mauro Icardi sing along to the song, struggling to contain their laughter.
And in the aftermath of the video’s release, Maluma deleted his own Instagram account.
The song, as well as its video, appears to shed light on Maluma’s feelings post-breakup.
An exchange between a male and a female is seen at the beginning of the music video, starting with the latter saying: “This relationship is becoming toxic.”
Maluma replies: “What the hell did I do now?”
The woman then hits back: “You just don’t get it. I can’t continue like this.”
Our generation is going to change the world. 🙏🏼♥️ @gqrussia June print & digital covers 🇷🇺
Lyrics in the song translate from Spanish to English to include apparent references to images of Natalia with Neymar on Instagram: “The picture that you posted saying he was your sky.
“Babe, I know you well, I know it was uploaded to make me jealous.
“I won’t tell you who, but someone told me they saw you crying.”
Earlier this year, Natalia told Danny Morel’s podcast that her previous relationship with Maluma turned “toxic” because she was giving “1,000 per cent” and only receiving “20 per cent” in return.
Despite this, an insider told Page Six that there are “no hard feelings”.
At the time of the split, Natalia told them: “I love Juan Luis [Maluma] very much.
“But right now we need to take time for ourselves and our careers so that we can continue to grow as artists and individuals.”
Natalia and Neymar appeared on the cover of GQ Russia together in May, having confirmed their relationship in February.
Can we just stay here forever? ✨
