HULK’S ex-wife has claimed it feels like she has buried her daughter alive after the Brazilian striker married her niece.
The Shanghai SIPG forward, 34, ended his 12-year relationship with Iran Angelo in July 2019.
Just five months later, reports linked Hulk to her stunning niece Camila Angelo.
The striker then reportedly married the 31-year-old in March.
After being ditched by Hulk, Iran has opened up on her heartbreak.
She claimed Camila was like a daughter to her and said it feels like she is “burying her daughter alive”.
According to Portuguese source Record as cited by Marca, she added: “I wake up and go to sleep without understanding why everything happened to me.
“The pain is very great, sometimes I think it will tear my heart out. She was a daughter to me.”
When asked about her relationship with her niece, who is now her ex-husband’s wife, she explained that: “I gave everything to this girl since she came into the world.
“I sacrificed my dreams so many times to make her dreams come true.
“And here I’m not just talking about material goods, because these are easy to give when you have money, but love, affection, attention, respect … everything.
“She knew my weaknesses, insecurities, pain, fears and had my unconditional love.
“She managed my life, and for me everything what she said was good, it was correct, it was ethical.
“She was perfect in everything and I gave her the direction of my life.
“If I was wrong, my God, it was because I loved and trusted too much.”
Hulk and his new missus regularly share snaps of each other to their Instagram pages.
The striker shared an image of them together this week alongside the caption: “You taught me what it’s like to truly love and above all what it’s like to be loved.
“I have no doubt what I wish for myself from now: a life by your side.
“Happy birthday my love. Love you my little one.”
