Simone Biles’s ‘Brazilian boyfriend’ tells Zac Efron: ‘I saw her first’
In addition to cementing her place as one of the most successful gymnasts of all-time at the Rio Olympics, Simone Biles has also found herself at the heart of a bit of a love triangle.
Earlier in the week Biles met her longtime crush Zac Efron, and the two even traded kisses on the cheek as she continued her Olympic dominance.
But Brazilian Olympian Arthur Nory Mariano, who has been spotted repeatedly in Biles’s social media during the Games, is letting the That Awkward Moment star know he sees what is going on.
Hey @zacefron I saw her first... She is my girl ❤️😁🙏🏻 Proud of you Simone! You are phenomal in whole world and special. You made history. Love u "sai daqui ZéKi Éfrom, ta pensando que eu sou bobo é? Desde 2013 estou com ela.. Ela minha garota. Sou da lapa e lá nois breca talaricas. 😂" #love ❤️ Repost from @simonebiles @TopRankRepost #TopRankRepost 💚✨ @arthurnory
Mariano’s joking defense of Biles has of course set social media ablaze as everyone tries to figure out if America’s favorite gymnast is really dating the floor exercise bronze medal winner, or if the two are just carrying out a very public flirtation as the Summer Games progress.
