According to him, he handled the matter seriously and with utmost respect, and has already provided the due clarification to the police authority. Antony added, "The police inquest is under cover of justice, therefore I cannot make its content public".

He claimed that his relationship with Ms. Gabriela, his former girlfriend was "tumultuous", and agreed to exchange verbal offenses but denied all accusations of any kind of physical abuse.

He added, "Every time, whether in testimony or in interview, she presents a different version of the accusations. Thus, I come to deny the accusations made and inform that I remain at the full disposal of the Brazilian authorities to clarify what is needed in this case".

Antony looks to trust the ongoing police investigators and is almost certain that he's going to be proven innocent.
