Kelly Piquet always shows her unwavering support for her boyfriend, Max Verstappen, even when she is not able to attend the races. Whether she is present or not, she expresses her congratulations and admiration for him. However, amidst the recent scandal involving her father, Nelson Piquet, the Brazilian model has also stood up for him.
Nelson Piquet has been known for his controversial actions both during races and in his personal life. Recently, in 2021, he faced a fine of $950,000 for making racist remarks about Lewis Hamilton during an interview. Furthermore, he is currently facing allegations of being connected to a scandal involving the Presidential jewelry collection, amounting to $3.2 million, alongside Renan Bolsonaro. There have been rumors of a potential arrest in relation to this matter.
Despite these challenging circumstances for her father, Kelly Piquet has shown her support. As his daughter, she shared a heartfelt message on her Instagram story along with a childhood photo of herself hugging her father. The caption translated to “Happy Father’s Day to my everything.”
Nelson Piquet is alleged to have shown support for the Bolsonaro family, which includes Jair Bolsonaro, the previous President of Brazil. Recent reports indicate that Bento Albuquerque, the former Minister of Mine and Energy, was discovered with jewelry valued at $3.2 million after returning from Saudi Arabia. In order to avoid taxes, it was declared as a state gift and included in the Presidential jewelry assortment.
Nelson Piquet and Renan Bolsonaro are accused of taking the jewelry, which was initially designated as a gift from the state. It is claimed that Piquet handed over the suitcase containing the jewelry to Bolsonaro.
Kelly Piquet’s commendable actions involve supporting her father despite the accusations and expressing her love and appreciation, even in the midst of controversy.
