A contestant in Brazil’s saucy Miss BumBum pageant has dumped her boyfriend after he ordered the stunning model to quit the contest.
Brunette Kaszila Prata is representing her state Tocantins in next month’s contest, which she hopes to win.
But she’s told how she broke up with her comedian boyfriend when he grew jealous of her upcoming appearance.
Kazila said: “I was very involved and I felt pressured, but I ended up thinking only of myself, of course.
“I was told to give up the contest to continue with the relationship, a proposal, at the very least, that is abusive. It really affected me.”
Kazila said the comic was trying to control her life and asked her to stop posting saucy images on social media and appearing in men’s magazines after she featured on the cover of January’s ‘Sexy Brazil’.
She explained: “I thought about myself, my career, and everything I’ve built so far.
“I don’t want any man bossing me around and telling me what I can and can’t do. I am free and independent and I’m not going to abandon my projects.
“It’s a bit crazy, because when we are in a relationship, we don’t think straight, we are influenced.”
She even said she will remain single until after the Miss BumBum pageant so nothing can interfere with her preparations.
Kazila said: “I’m betting on my shape and charisma. I’m very confident and I want to reach the final.”
Miss BumBum Brazil 2022 features 27 candidates from the country’s 26 states and Federal District.
Only 15 will progress to the final in July in Sao Paulo where they will have to impress a panel of celebrity judges.
Contestants are judged on the beauty of their rear ends with the winner scooping a GBP 22,000 cash prize and instant celebrity.
