He is obviously good looking, wealthy and talented; as such, he turns the heads of pretty ladies wherever he goes. Just like his counterparts in the football arena, the São Paulo native has been linked to actresses, supermodels, and reality TV stars since he began his walk of fame. As a result, Neymar’s girlfriend list is long enough to make most men envious. Here’s a comprehensive look at all the women the hunky sportsman has dated through the years.
Carolina Nogueira Dantas
Carolina Nogueira Dantas is a Brazilian social media sensation who dated Neymar for a while before giving birth to their son David Lucca Da Silva Santos in August 2011. The two, however, got separated soon after the arrival of their child.
But the PSG star player has since proved to be a proud father to David, whom he often spends time with. The pair share dual custody of their son and have maintained a cordial relationship since the split. Meanwhile, Neymar’s ex-girlfriend and baby mama exchanged vows with her man Vinicius Martinez in 2019.
Soon after breaking up with his baby mama, the Brazilian football star became an item with Bárbara Evans, a Brazilian actress and model. The two dated briefly in 2011 before calling it quits. It was later speculated that the responsibility of becoming a father took a negative toll on the relationship, as the prolific striker needed to spend ample time with his son. She is popularly known for emerging as the winner of the Brazilian version of the reality show, The Farm in the sixth season.
Carol Abranches is another Brazilian model on Neymar’s list of beautiful ladies. She began a romantic affair with the hunk in the same 2011 that the footballer split with his baby mama and hooked up with Evans. The pair sparked a dating rumour after they were spotted in a yacht. They were reportedly in an open relationship at the time, which made the model and dancer to also hook up with other men during the course of the short-lived affair. No wonder, the relationship didn’t last long.

A few months later, they parted ways but eventually rekindled their romance in 2016, when they began making public appearances together.
Even though the reason for their breakups has been attributed to the football player’s infidelity, the Brazilian beauty seemed to have finally won Neymar’s heart when they got back together at the 2017 Pre-New Year’s party held in Brazil, after another breakup. With the expectation of the two finally getting things right, they surprised their fans by announcing their break up in October 2018, citing that they are finally done for good.
