The former Inter Milan star was engulfed in deep frustration after his failed move to French club Le Havre in 2015 after leaving Atletico Paranaense the previous year. The Ligue 2 club offered the Brazil international a contract at the Stade Oceane, with Adriano agreeing to the deal.

But the proposed substitution failed at the last minute after the takeover at Le Havre went wrong. And according to Brasil publication Extra, the 2004 Copa America winner, entertained himself in the only way he knew by visiting brothels.
They claim that Adriano flew from France back to Rio de Janeiro where he spent £13,000 on 18 prostitutes. He took a group of women to a private party at the Vip’s Motel where he spent another £8,600 to party until the wee hours of the morning.
The four-time Serie A winner is well known for his off-the-pitch performances. Fan favorite Parma was cleared in 2014 of drug trafficking after being accused four years earlier. Last year the burly striker sold his luxury home and all his belongings – except for his medals – and moved into a luxury hotel for £10,000 a month.

And just last month, Adriano allegedly refused a breath test after being caught driving without a license. Local reports said refusal to take a breath test, which is considered a serious offense under Brazilian rules, led to a fine of nearly £500 and a 12-month driving ban.
A police spokesman said of the incident: “Former Flamengo player Adriano Leite Ribeiro was stopped in the early hours of Sunday on a street called Avenida Lucio Costa in Barra da Tijuca and refused to take a breath test.”
“When the documents he was carrying were checked, the police found his driver’s license frozen. Adriano’s vehicle was intercepted and only released after the driver who was allowed to drive arrived.”
The former Corinthians centre-forward retired in 2016 after a brief spell at Miami United where he scored one goal in his only game.
