Exchanging gloves and shorts for a suit and tie, the champion of PFL in 2021, Antonio Shoe Guy, faces a new opponent: Globo. In a lawsuit filed in the 28th Civil Court of the Court of Justice of Rio de Janeiro (TJ-RJ), the former BBB asks for compensation of R$ 50 thousand for moral damages to Jornal Extra and retraction on the same channel that reported an alleged romance with reality champion, Amanda Meirelles.

“Fantastic” news, according to Shoe Face, tarnished his image and generated speculation. Accusations that he vehemently rejects, stating that his relationship with Amanda has always been one of friendship, both inside and outside of confinement.

In August 2023, Grupo Globo outlets reported the end of the romance between the former participants, further fueling the narrative. The vehicle's defense, in turn, argues that the repercussion on the participants' lives is inherent to the reality format and that the compensation is “unreasonable”.
