“Former Brazil defender, Dani Alves is “refusing to eat” and ‘wants to be locked in his cell” for most of the day, according to Cuatro al dia. His ex-wife Dana Dinorah has maintained his innocence throughout, but his current partner Joana Sanz posted a diary entry on her Instagram account explaining that their time as a couple appears to be over. Alves has been jailed since January 2023 due to alleged sexual assault. According to the report, Alves had been telling fellow inmates that his wife loved him and was supporting him amid the serious sexual assault allegations. But now the player “is completely devastated and very nervous.” Alves reportedly used to share a cell with another inmate at Brians 2 Prison in Spain but is now alone and Cuatro al dia reports that he “wants to be locked up” the whole time. No date has been set for Alves’ trial yet. The defender saw his attempt to negotiate a temporary release from prison denied in February, and his contract with Mexican side Pumas has also been terminated.
