São Paulo decided to terminate its contract with goalkeeper Jean, who is imprisoned in the United States, accused of assaulting his wife.

His wife made the complaint in videos posted on her Instagram. She said the goalkeeper beat her during their vacation in Orlando, Florida. Jean was arrested in Orange County, accused of domestic violence, and already has a lawyer accompanying him in the country.

Sought, the press office of the player says he awaits more information about the case and still does not know if it will comment.

Milena posted three videos during the early hours of Wednesday, claiming to be locked in the hotel bathroom with a bruised face and stating that he had just assaulted her.

She also showed messages that she received from the athlete through the Instagram, in which Jean says that the woman has ended his career and so "her daughters will starve." "Psychological pressure after aggression," said Milena.
