Leila Lopes Step Out Of Brazil

Due to the demands made by the organization, according to Caras magazine, one of the biggest in Brazil, samba school Unidos da Vila Isabel withdrew Lopes’ invitation to the biggest carnival in the world.

During the parade of the Unidos da Vila Isabel samba school in Rio, since this year their theme is a tribute to Angola, reigning Miss Universe, Leila Lopes of Angola, had been invited to be one of the ‘destaques’ (starring figures). It also includes a homage to Martinho da Vila, honorary president of the school, who actually had invited Lopes to take part in the festivities.

Which included a payment of $50,000.00 USD, personal security, five-star hotel, and and an exclusive ‘camarote’ in the Sambodromo, however, both Caras and UOL published that sources from the samba school withdrew the invitation due to the demands of the Miss Universe Organization. The Angolan beauty will no longer take part in the Rio Carnival due to these high conditions.
