Brazilian Model Cicarelli Lied. She Is Author of Suit Against YouTube

Despite her claims to the contrary, Brazilian model and MTV presenter Daniella Cicarelli, 26, is responsible, together with her boyfriend, for the lawsuit that ended up blocking the video sharing site YouTube for millions of Brazilians.

Apparently the only thing that the boyfriend signed by himself was a bill of review later in the suit, but that procedure is still part of the original lawsuit she signed.

The ex-wife of soccer striker Ronaldo is lying, concluded Consultor Jurí­dico, a Brazilian site specialized in legal matters, which had access to the couple's filing.

The initial lawsuit, which was filed in court soon after the now infamous video of her making love on a Spain beach came out, is signed by Cicarelli and her boyfriend Renato Malzoni Filho, 33.

Malzoni, a Merril Lynch banker is also the supporting actor in the steamy video that the Brazilian justice keeps on trying to prevent the Brazilian public from watching.

In a interview with Globo TV and then with Folha de S. Paulo columnist Mônica Bergamo, Cicarelli stated that she had no saying in the legal procedure.

"I'm not suing YouTube," she told Folha. "Tato's (Malzoni) lawyers were the ones who filed the lawsuit. When this whole story came out, I came to the conclusion that if I wanted to sue, I would have to sue everyone who reported the story: the newspapers, the magazines, everyone. So I decided to sue only the paparazzo."

She is referring to the Spanish paparazzo Miguel Temprano, who shot the video in southern Spain's  beach of Tarifa in Cadiz. The scenes were shown for the first time on TV at Telecinco's Dolce Vita show.

A few minutes later the hot love scenes were already on YouTube on its way to become Brazil's top shown video. How many times has it been seen? Nobody knows. Due to previous lawsuits the clip, in fact several copies of it, have been deleted and reposted thousands of times at Google's video sharing space and other sites all over the world.


An Internet community called  "Protest – Out Cicarelli" at Orkut, Google's social networking site, is inviting Brazilians to participate in a march and protest against Cicarelli on Saturday, January 13.

The idea is to gather at the Sumaré subway station in São Paulo and from there walk to Brazil MTV's headquarters, a few blocks away, where the marchers intend to call for the firing of the model and presenter. 

The organizers of the protest wrote in their Orkut community: ""We will show who is the boss in this democratic country!"

Brazilian Internet surfers have been calling for Cicarelli's pink slip and for a boycott of MTV since a São Paulo judge issued an order that took YouTube off the air for close to 24 hours earlier in the week. MTV has received about 100,000 emails asking for the presenter's dismissal. The TV station has released a note criticizing its critics:

"Although apparently legitimate these protests basically, deep down, share the same lack of values they wish to attack, since they promote censorship against a television channel".

The note, however, instead of calming the critics made them more determined to go ahead. "This note makes no sense. It is as if they called us bozos," said Márcio Motta, 22, the creator of the anti-Cicarelli community at Orkut.

"Our protest is a peaceful one. We want to ask a position from MTV. Cicarelli is a bad example for youth. And this is not the matter anymore, but censorship. She isn't pleasing anyone anymore."

  • I Love Brazil

    ie: Janet Jackson
    Oh Please. Is Brazil starting to be the morale compass that they criticize the US for? Who cares if she is lame enough to let herself be filmed in um…a compromising position. You all watched it didn’t you? she made a mistake but she shouldn’t lose her job over it. You know what they say, even bad publicicty is well… publicity. Maybe she’s more clever than you think… 😉

  • Tally

  • US congress leader called leftist by O Globo

    And my friend American bimbo, Brazil does not have the moreal mentality so don’t apply your moral stupidity here. You attacking the guy who has no public projection as a personality just shows your moral culutral learnings and your great stupidity. Ok now the site is yours! : )

  • US congress leader called leftist by O Globo

    Americans can only open their mouth to say s***t …. this ability they have is simply unbelieble how they can overcome themselves. LOL

  • US congress leader called leftist by O Globo

    Oh my god this I love Brazil bimbo cannot shut up! The woman is a presentator for the TEEN audience (altough to a teen watch the stupid programs Cicarelli does is already a tragedy, the woman cannot CLOSE that st***d mouth!!). And the Merryl Lynch banker is doing his job as a vulture of capitalism, being as brainless as he possibly can LOL.

    stephen is a ignorant brazilian and a brazilian functional illiterate lol!

  • Stephen

    Ashis. I have been to your islands and indeed they are beautiful and untouched. Thanks for letting us know about them.

  • jab

    I think it is their business.

  • Stephen

    Janet wasn’t fu*king on a public Beach! Of course she should be fired and her stud muffin too!!! Got to pay the ferry man!!
    There are dozens of other girls that can do the MTV show and most likely better..if you live here in Brazil and has access to the show you will she is a loser. 100,000 emails of protest has to mean something. MTV is absurd to say such shit. This slut is not clever but very stupid, oh please, banish her to Ibiza!!! Are you going to take the advice of a Merril Lynch banker that only can think with his D**k and not his head. No way Jose!!! Another example that in Brazil it takes 3 to change a light bulb.

  • ch.c.
