In June 2020, Mayra Cardi made a video with an outburst about her relationship with Arthur Aguiar. The businesswoman and the actor had announced the end of their marriage in May after three years together. But they have already resumed.
In Mayra’s statement on Instagram, she said that she lived in an “abusive and manipulative relationship, where she was extremely betrayed for many years”.
Arthur also used the platform to publish a video and defend himself against the accusations. “I admit all my mistakes as a human being, but this subject is not a joke and also for my daughter I need to, in fact, take a stand,” wrote the actor.
In the statement about his participation, Arthur says he felt privileged to receive the invitation to join the BBB22 Cabin. Father of a 3-year-old girl, he already says what he intends to do with the rewards that the program can provide: “I want to give everything I can to my family”, he highlights.
Living with the other brothers may not be so easy, as he considers himself stubborn and systematic. He also reveals that he usually guards his feelings. The former swimming athlete already announces his willingness to play the game: “I only go into the water to win”, he bets.
For Arthur, joining Big Brother Brazil is a chance to improve and show who he is. “The BBB is a great opportunity for a fresh start that God is giving me”, he evaluates.
