Involvement with Pele

Although reports of their affair only started to circulate after 2008, when the two met each other, which was their second encounter, it is believed that Pele and Marcia Aoki met for the first time in New York City when the two were there, separately for their different purposes, all the way back in 1980. The two seemed to enjoy each other’s company but things didn’t progress further as Pele was a married man and her too.

Marriage

In 2008, Marcia Aoki and Pele met each other, as surprising it may sounds, in an elevator. The two were surprised seeing each other after such a long time, it was a stroke of coincidence. The two caught up on their lives and got to know more about each other. Marcia Aoki by the time had been going through a rough divorce, during which Pele seemed to provide a shoulder. They soon started seeing each other on a regular basis and Pele too soon left his wife Assiria being fully involved with Marcia.

(Pele however already has 5 children from his earlier two marriages)

He started playing professional football when he was only 15 years old and played for brazil when 17. He’s the all-time leading goal scorer for Brazil, scoring 77 goals and a record-setting 643 goals for his club Santos in just 659 matches, averaging a stunning almost 1 goal per game record.

He has won so many trophies and honors, that we could fill an entire page with it. Some of it includes winning the FIFA world cup 3 times, he is the only player to achieve this feat. He was awarded the FIFA Player of the Century award in 2000. He was knighted by the Queen of England in 1997 and has been awarded the  Ballon d’Or 7 times, in retrospect. Initially, during his playing days, only European players were eligible for the award, but FIFA and France Football reevaluated this and honored the best, just like he deserved to be.

Controversy

But for now, we can tag those rumors to be baseless.

 

Net Worth

From her successful business empire Marcia Aoki established from the grounds up, on her own efforts, she has accumulated a considerable amount of wealth, and is a millionaire, with her worth being almost equivalent to $2 million, thanks to her entrepreneurship.
