Brazil's Neymar may have plenty on his mind these days, but a problematic issue of "Playboy" is no longer on that list.
The Brazilian variant of "Playboy" features in its June issue a model named Patricia Jordane, who's pictured in the issue wearing goalkeeper gloves and not much else. However, the magazine referred to her as "The brunette who charmed Neymar," and that didn't sit well with the Brazilian star.
On Wednesday, a Sao Paolo court determined that "Playboy do Brazil" overstepped its bounds in associating Neymar's name with Ms. Jordane, and ruled that the magazine must be pulled from the stands. The court also mandated a fine of about $4,500 a day for every day the magazine was not withdrawn.
There aren't many photos of Ms. Jordane online that are fit for a family website, but here's a selfie from last month:
