However, it is not the fact of having all this glamor that attracts attention, but rather how the couple managed to reach this level. According to the Civil Police, during the “Tyche” operation, young people aged 21 and 22 were discovered to be involved in digital gambling, popularly known as the “Tigrinho Game”.

Both were taken to the Guarapari police station, Espírito Santo, and charged. The crimes reported are: crime against the popular economy (from 6 months to 2 years of imprisonment and fine) and promotion of gambling (warning or suspension of activity for up to six months).
