A comment by Elba Ramalho on the photo of Rodrigo Godoy, Preta Gil’s ex-husband, was not well received by internet users. The 72-year-old singer from Bahia was heavily criticized due to her interaction with the personal trainer, who cheated on Gilberto Gil’s daughter while she was undergoing treatment for bowel cancer.
Upon seeing Rodrigo’s latest publication, Elba decided to comment: “Hi, Rodrigo, good to see you”, she wrote, adding a passionate emoji. Then, Preta’s ex-husband responded with many stars.
The exchange of messages was frowned upon by Instagram users: “He only wants older women to carry out the coup. Then leave it in your hands. He should go to the INSS, there’s a lot there”, joked one. “What decadence, Elba”, criticized another.
After the repercussion of the case, Rodrigo Godoy’s social network went offline. It is unclear whether it was Preta’s ex-husband who deactivated it or the profile was taken down.
Cheated on by ex for 7 months
Preta Gil was betrayed by her ex-husband, Rodrigo Godoy, for 7 months, including after discovering her diagnosis of bowel cancer. The revelation was made by the singer, during her participation in the program De Frente com Blogueirinha, last month.
“As soon as it happens, you’re left asking yourself ‘my God, what happened, what went wrong?’. When it starts to calm down, you start to remember things, various situations, and this situation… It was seven months that the guy was cheating on me, and I didn’t even suspect, I was blind,” he stated.
She then reported that she sensed something was happening, but there was no suspicion: “I had a very trusting relationship with him, so I didn’t suspect it. I started to have something [implicar] with her [a ex-stylist da cantora com quem Rodrigo tinha um caso]which is a feeling thing, and I started to have a fight with her, that she wasn’t getting along with me, my intuition, there wasn’t really anything, so much so that we stopped working together, but then it was too late, they were already connected”, he reported.
The singer also revealed that she thought the marriage was going through a crisis: “I followed the marriage, I’m not going to say it was good, but I thought it was a crisis, that we were going to resolve it, it was taking a lot to that side, and zero suspicion of betrayal. She thought he was going through a moment of crisis, so much so that we separated professionally to see if people would stop fighting. I thought it was something more like that and I didn’t care,” she said, before adding:
“Obviously, now, when we find out, everything starts to make sense: that attitude, that way, that day. But what shocks me most about this story is not the betrayal. Betrayal happens, we are human, it is hypocritical to keep saying ‘oh, my God, you betrayed me’. Betrayal happens, the carnal thing, what for me is most serious is that you choose to betray several times, which is deceiving, manipulating, hiding”, he said.
Preta Gil also pointed out how she thinks her ex should have behaved: “Then comes the most serious thing of all, which is the moment of my diagnosis. Dude, okay, are you in love, do you have a crush on me? Talk to her. She has two options: ‘Baby, honey, let’s take a break, because my wife, who I’m married to while I’m having an affair with you, is sick at home undergoing cancer treatment.’ This is an option, take a break, finish it, and then go and deal with it, take care of your wife. Afterwards, you can talk to your wife, get along with her or separate,” she commented.
And he gave another possibility: “Another option is, before all this, way back, because from what they say they started getting together in October last year, it’s been a year now… You’ve fallen in love, are you willing to embark on this? Separate it, it’s fine. Would I suffer? I was going to, but separate, man. Be a man. Does your wife have cancer? Ask your lover, tell her: ‘Girl, babe, darling, my baby, chuchuzinho, let’s take a break because I’m going to take care of my wife here?’, he declared.
The singer continued with her outburst, stating that her ex-husband left her at home to go clubbing: “He didn’t care. I make a point of saying this because this is the reality of many women in Brazil today. Not nowadays, since forever. My diagnosis came in January, I separated from him first, before discovering the betrayal because he abandoned me with cancer, he literally abandoned me. He would go out, I would stay at home. My friends were starting to notice.”
She even became worried about her ex’s mental health: “I thought [normal ele sair]. I actually said this to him: ‘Let’s get a therapist, I think my diagnosis is too heavy for you’. I often said to him ‘yes, really, the atmosphere here at home is tense, go to the pagoda with your friends, have a beer’. But this beer was drinking every day and there came a time when it started to irritate me.”
And he continued: “My friends didn’t warn me [do abandono] because I was sick and they were very afraid of my reaction. But they protected me, they came at me with everything they could. I was abandoned at home, there were these girls, my friends there, giving me baths and food, while he was on the street. You can’t think of this as normal,” she said, taking the opportunity to hit back at the haters.
“Now on the internet there are people saying: ‘Oh, woman, get over it. Tired, soap opera chapter repeated’. F*ck you, you didn’t go through what I went through, you’re not here in my shoes. So, will I get over it? I go. Will that day come? Go. But it’s a process, this happened 7 months ago. In fact, that’s what you said. Deliverance, I already understand that part.”
