Man City star Gabriel Jesus and pregnant girlfriend forced to deny claims they have split in defiant Instagram posts
MANCHESTER CITY striker Gabriel Jesus and his pregnant girlfriend have rubbished split claims by cuddling up to each other and insisting: “We’re doing fine.”
Well-known Brazilian journalist Leo Dias said on Friday he had been told by sources close to the couple they had called time on their relationship despite pretty influencer Raiane Lima expecting their first child.
But the footballer and his partner took less than 24 hours to deny any rift with matching social media snaps showing they were still very much an item.
One, which they both posted on their Instagrams, showed Jesus with his arms round pretty Raiane alongside the message: “My love” and a heart emoticon.
In another they responded directly to the split claims by writing alongside a second photo showing them lying on their bed: “We’ve never broken up and we’re doing fine.”
Raiane, 21 also posted a selfie of herself stroking her baby bump alongside the caption: “Mummy loves you a lot.”
The stunning Brazilian confirmed last July she was dating 24-year-old Jesus after they were spotted boarding his private jet in Brazil to return to Rio de Janeiro from her native city.
The footballer had travelled to Serra Telhada in the north-east state of Pernambuco to invest in race horses that excel at sprinting short distances.

Around the same time Raiane denied claims she had been romancing a local politician when she met the striker.
She had been linked in local press in her homeland at the time to married Pernambuco state MP and tourism minister Rodrigo Novaes.
But she angrily denied reports they had a fling and that she was only 18.
The pretty Brazilian said when she confirmed she was dating Brazilian international Jesus: “I just want to clear up a few things that gossip sites have been saying.
“First of all I’m 20 and have been over-age for some time now.
“Second I was not dating anyone when I got to know Gabriel.
“Today we are in a relationship, yes, but that’s something that only concerns us.
“We are single, free and anything else said other than that is gossip and cruelty.”
Gabriel announced he was set to become a father for the first time at the end of September last year after scoring the winner in a 1-0 away victory against Chelsea.
He posted a photo of him with his thumb in his mouth looking up to the sky and wrote: “What a day! Very happy for this goal, this very important win for us and for the wonderful news.
"Expecting my first child. A celebration for a more than special moment!”
