"We will not be commenting any further at this time."

On Monday, Gabriela hit back with a formal letter on Instagram as cops carry on an investigation in her native São Paulo, Brazil.

The influencer and DJ's statement comes after Antony released his own lengthy statement on Instagram, admitting he had a "tumultuous" relationship with Gabriela.

She says she dated the World Cup ace on and off for two years and lived with him in Amsterdam while he played for Ajax.

The 23-year-old claims the first assault came at a nightclub in São Paulo last July when she was around 17 weeks pregnant with his baby.

Gabriela, who has nearly 500,000 Instagram followers, published a letter issued by her legal team.

It read: "Gabriela Cavallin's defence, in view of the facts and evidence that became public knowledge on this date, regarding the repeated episodes of aggression suffered by her, informs that she trusts the serious and competent investigation by the Civil Police of São Paulo.

"[And] hopes that, as such, once completed, the aggressor will be prosecuted and punished for the crimes he committed."

A statement from Antony was also published in the same evening, where he said he felt "obliged" to break his silence "out of respect for my fans, friends and family".

The 23-year-old footballer once again denied the accusations of domestic violence after a first statement published in June.

"Out of respect for my fans, friends and family, I feel obliged to speak out publicly about the false accusations that I have been a victim of," he wrote.

"From the beginning, I have treated this matter with seriousness and respect, providing the necessary clarifications to the police.

"The investigation is under judicial secrecy, and therefore I cannot make its contents public.

"However, I can calmly say that the accusations are false, and that the current evidence and the ones yet to be produced demonstrate my innocence.

He added that his relationship with Gabriela was "tumultuous" but claims it never resulted in violence.

"My relationship with Mrs. Gabriela was tumultuous, with verbal insults from both sides, but I never committed any physical aggression," he explained.

"Each time, whether in testimony or in an interview, she presents a different version of the accusations.

"Therefore, I come to vehemently deny the accusations made and inform you that I remain at the entire disposal of the Brazilian authorities to clarify anything.

"I trust that ongoing police investigations will demonstrate the truth about my innocence."

The online statement war comes after Gabriela shared a new string of text messages and pictures of her injuries as cops in Brazil carry on with the domestic violence probe.

Cavallin's fresh claims were first published by Brazilian media outlet UOL, one of the South American country's largest news providers.

In the new string of undated WhatsApp messages, the DJ and influencer claims Antony wished she was dead and told her "go f**k yourself" after she allegedly refused to reply to his messages and calls.

The Premier League ace was also axed from the Brazil national squad and replaced by Gabriel Jesus ahead of this month's two World Cup qualifiers.
