Rosemeri dos Reis Cholbi is the ex-spouse of football legend Pele

She was Pele’s first serious relationship with whom he wanted to start a family with

In the Netflix documentary of Pele, his first serious relationship with whom he wanted to start a family was when he met Rose (Rosemeri) in Santos

According to him, he was a bit shy back then. He became friends with her father, and to befriend her father, he would use various tricks. 

He would say he could shine his shoes if he wanted. He initially didn’t tell people he had a girlfriend so that he wouldn’t become public. 

When he thought it was time for him to settle down, he got closer to the family and got married. 

He married Rose because he liked her, but he was too young. They didn’t have that kind of passion a couple who are madly in love had. 

During an interview back then, when asked to Rose if she and her husband spend enough time together, she replied that her husband knows how to split time between football and family, so it works well.

Pele’s infidelity is the reason behind their divorce

Rosemeri and Pele got married in 1966 in Brazil before they moved to the United States and settled in New York City in 1975

As he got more and more famous, he started getting more and more commercial deals that were outside the world of football. 

He began traveling around the world more for commercial deals than he was traveling for football. And it was tough for his family and his relationship. 

In his documentary, he has admitted to difficulty remaining faithful with the number of women getting close to him. 

He said he had affairs, some of which resulted in children, but he only learned about it later. He said

“My first wife, my first girlfriend, knew all about it. I never lied to anyone.”

However, Rosemeri had enough of the continued infidelity from Pele’s side that led their marriage to fall apart. They divorced in the year 1982.

They share three kids

They gave birth to their three beautiful kids from their marriage union, son Edinho, and daughters Kelly Cristina Nascimento and Jennifer Nascimento

But Pele is also the father of his twins Joshua Nascimento and Celeste Nascimento, who he welcomed with his second ex-wife, psychologist, and gospel singer Assiria Nascimento

Besides that, he was romantically linked with Lenita Kurtz while he was in a marital relationship with Rosemeri and conceived a daughter Flavia Kurtz outside of their relationship.

Her ex-spouse is receiving treatment after being diagnosed with a respiratory infection

The concern about Pele’s health rose after ESPN Brasil reported that he had been admitted to the Albert Einstein hospital in Sao Paulo with general swelling. 

The hospital later stated that he was admitted to the hospital for the re-evaluation of chemotherapy treatment

The great footballer was diagnosed with colon cancer in September 2021 and had his tumor removed from his colon. 

The Brazil fans unveiled the banner that displayed the image of Pele with the message “Get Well Soon” ahead of Brazil vs. Cameroon match on Friday. 

And also, Qatar made a tribute displaying a picture of him wishing him a speedy recovery. 

Pele was moved by the tribute and took his Instagram to express his gratitude to Qatar and everyone who sent him good vibes stating that he is at the hospital making his monthly visit.

He is currently receiving treatment for a respiratory infection and is in a common room; he is stable with general improvement and will remain in the hospital for the next few days, the hospital stated.
