JDS not reuniting with wife, but she firmly remains his manager

Monday, February 04, 2013

There were recent reports that former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos was determined to reunite with his extranged wife of ten years, Vilsana Picolli.

The reports are false – the pair, although close, have no intention of reconciling. However, she will remain as his manager.

“It’s a lie that I said that one of my goals in 2013 is to regain Vilsana,” said JDS on his official website. “Our relationship is eternal, it is the most important person in my life, only we are not married anymore.”

His wife concurred.

“I would definitely put an end to current news about our relationship and our marriage,” said Vilsana. “Junior and I have been married for 10 years. Many couples over 10 years cultivating quarrels, enmities. Others do not. We cultivate a friendship, a relationship without fights, where trust, respect and, above all, true love has always existed.”

“We want the good of each other. Always was and will remain so. Together we make the decision not to continue longer married. Marriage is a life stage and we are in another stage. Today I met Junior and more than anyone else. I am responsible for the entire administration of his career. That will not change, I will continue taking care of him, taking care of his career…. We’ll be friends forever. “
