An influencer who allegedly tore off a teenage boy’s leg in a fatal motorcycle crash has been branded a rapist by a Brazilian model.
Bruno Fernandes Moreira Krupp, 25, was arrested after he allegedly hit a 16-year-old with his motorbike on a pedestrian crossing in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday, 30th July.
He was allegedly going so fast that the schoolboy’s leg was torn off and flung down the road.
He did not have a motorcycle licence, and it is believed he was doing over 100 kph (62 mph) in a 60-kph (37-mph) area.
Now model Priscila Trindade has claimed to her 10,500 Instagram followers that Krupp raped her six years ago.
She said she was discouraged from reporting the incident at the time.
She alleged: “What happened to me took place many years ago, at the time I met him… I met him with a bunch of friends, we flirted, and, after some flirting, I agreed to go to his house in Niteroi to then go to a party.”
She added that she decided to spend the night at his house, as she lived further away.
Krupp allegedly left Priscila at his house and went back to the party, returning home later.
The model claimed: “He arrived drunk at 6am and forcefully grabbed me. I told him several times to stop and he literally forced me.
“He really forced me.
“After much reluctance, I gave in and it was horrible. It was very uncomfortable because if I had screamed, I would have woken up the whole building, and I didn’t have the courage to do anything drastic.
“In the middle of the situation, he grabbed his mobile phone and even tried to film me naked on his bed.
“I was upset, but he said so many stupid things that I could only think about leaving.”
She said she did not feel comfortable reporting the crime at the time because she felt people would judge her.
The model encouraged any other victims to speak out and also posted screenshots of messages she said she had received from women who claimed they had been abused by Krupp.
Krupp’s lawyer, William Pena, described the allegations as “opportunism”.
Road crash victim Joao Gabriel Cardim Guimaraes died in hospital.
Pena admits his client had been riding recklessly but claims brake failure was to blame.
Krupp is now also being investigated by police for the reported rape and fraud.
The fraud case dates to 2021, when Krupp allegedly conned victims out of around BRL 428,000 (GBP 67,600).
