“He called me beautiful. I thought it was strange because, at first, I thought he wanted to be with my 26-year-old cousin,” she confessed. The teenager found herself involved by the professional, who invited her to barbecues, concerts, trips, events and offered to pick her up at school for meetings. The courtship was inevitable. Initially, on the sly.
Pregnant at 14
For Antonia, the model said she was a virgin when she met her ex-husband. The pregnancy took place months after the first sexual intercourse. “When I got pregnant, I was 14 years old. Then my parents found out. My mother was very nervous, she sought justice, the police station. Only she discovered it was not a crime,” he said. The crime of rape of the vulnerable is configured with the carnal conjunction or the practice of libidinous acts with children under 14 years old.

“When Lorenzo was three months old, we did the exam. This was the first time he saw his son. As I was a minor, my mother was responsible for everything. She didn’t want to fight. She took me to the United States to have Lorenzo When we did the DNA, he repaid [os custos]. The judge determined a pension and since then he has paid “, he detailed. The Justice defined R $ 17 thousand of pension for the firstborn.
According to the young woman, although the businessman is not a present father, she found herself emotionally involved by him. Not even the assaults, which started after the third year together, made her give up on the marriage. Lucas was born a month ago, the couple’s second child. “I was in love. He asked me for forgiveness, said it would be different and I believed,” he admitted.
Petal said that it ended when she was still pregnant. For Na Lata, she said she suffered aggression when she was expecting her second child. “That was the reason for our ending. It was on the day of Villa Mix’s first live. At the beginning of the year, I was already pregnant and he was very upset with me”, he recalled.
“That was when I realized that my pregnancy would be at risk. So, I put an end to it. I broke up with him, said it was our last day together and left for my parents’ house,” he said.
“He was always drunk. And that was what I ended up accepting. The next day, he woke up very sorry, said he was going to change and we went to church together. I am a Christian and I believe in the power of God. I tried everything. I thought he had the possibility to change. Every time he attacked me, he was drunk. The other day, he asked for forgiveness and said he would change “, he lamented.
According to Pétala, Araújo still does not pay the youngest’s pension and the request for this runs in court. She even reported that she provided a DNA test to prove that the two children have the same father.
