Hulk’s ex-wife has accused the Brazilian footballer and his niece of ‘cutting his flesh like a knife’.
Iran Angelo launched an attack on Atletico Mineiro forward and Camila Angelo when they announced that they were expecting a baby together.
Devastated Iran, who has been married to the Hulk for 12 years, said in a thinly-veiled message to Star and Camilo on Instagram: “Lies and betrayals are like knives.
“They bite our flesh, make us bleed, dry up, die a little inside.
“But for those who have God in their lives, this death means rebirth.
“I am reborn with every despair and every lie that is exposed because Jesus made me stronger.”
The mother-of-three Iran posted her message along with a picture of a watch with the caption: “Only in time has the skill to uncover appearances, expose lies and show one’s true character.”
The Hulk’s ex has previously claimed that he treated Camilla like his own daughter, saying he felt like ‘burying her alive’.

She lashed out: “I have given everything to this girl since she came into this world. I sacrificed my dreams many times to make his dreams come true.
“And here I am not only talking about material things, because it is easier to give when you have money, but love, affection, attention, respect… everything.
“She knew my weaknesses, insecurities, pains, fears and loved me unconditionally.
“He managed my life, and everything he said to me was good, it was right, it was moral.
“She was perfect in everything and I gave her the direction of my life. If I was wrong, my God, it was because I loved and trusted too much.”
The Hulk confirmed that Camilla, 32, was pregnant in an Instagram post that included footage of them kissing and photos of them holding scans of the unborn child.
He announced that he was dating the younger woman in July 2019 after ending his 12-year relationship with Iran.
The loving pair married in September 2020, while the 35-year-old was still playing for Chinese side Shanghai SIPG.
It is not yet known whether they are expecting a boy or a girl.
The footballer reportedly broke the news of his relationship with Camilla to his family in December 2019.
A spokesman for the Strikers said in a statement at the time: “The Hulk called the parents and Camilla’s brother and told them the truth.
“It was the Hulk himself who made the information public because he had nothing to hide. His position is transparency and he wants to avoid lies and malicious comments.”
