The similarities between the twins Key Alves, participant of BBB 23 (Big Brother Brasil), and Keyt Alves extrapolate the physical characteristics: the two chose volleyball as a career. More than that, the two “baixinhas” act as libero and competed for a place in the starting lineup of the first three clubs they defended. In an interview with “O Globo”, Keyt recalled the times as her sister’s teammate.
– We played together practically our whole lives. We were recently separated. It’s been two or three years since we changed teams. During that time we played together, it was competitive all day long. It was the same position (libero), but only one played. She was the starter, she served for a long time in that position. I switched to be like her, who had more experience. So, there were fights, we took them into the house, we argued, but the next day we were sisters again (laughs). Once we started being opponents on the court, we didn’t fight anymore. Still a little feud, but much healthier. More of playing that one won and the other lost – revealed.

With the physical similarities and the same position on the court, the sisters had to live with comparisons their whole lives. For Keyt, this was a struggle she’s had to deal with throughout her career.
– What I heard most was comparison. This, in a way, made me very angry. I always hit the key that we are twins, but each one is one. We are totally different. Both in personality and on the court. We have different styles of play,” she said.
DATING WITH A PALMEIRAS PLAYER
+ ‘I wanted to be with someone, she would go there and take it’, reveals Key Alves’ twin
About ten months ago, Keyt Alves started dating Fabinho Freitas, a 20-year-old player from Palmeiras. The first publication with her boyfriend generated speculation of an engagement due to the presence of an alliance and the caption “a thousand times yes”, but the player clarified that they were just assuming the relationship that they had kept secret for months.
– We were already dating in secret, we hadn’t put it on the internet for people to know. On New Year’s Eve, we completed eight, nine months of dating. He officially asked me to date with a wedding ring. It wasn’t engagement, no. It was just for us to explain. We did this (hide) due to the exhibition and because it is very recent. Sometimes you end up talking to a month and then it doesn’t work out. Because he is a football player too, we preferred to preserve it a little more. We know that football player exposure has pros and cons. And my sister is known on social media. We’re careful,” she explained.
