Maluma is “good and safe” despite deleting his Instagram on Wednesday after Neymar, who is reportedly dating his ex Natalia Barulích, seemingly shaded him online.
The singer’s own management company, WK Entertainment, posed the question on their Instagram, “Does anyone know what happened to Maluma’s Instagram?”
“No one knows why he deactivated it, especially since he’s so open on it,” a source told us. “But we know he’s good and safe.”
After Neymar’s team, Paris St. Germain, beat RB Leipzig in a UEFA Champions League semi-finals match on Tuesday, the soccer player and his teammates posted a video on Instagram singing along to Maluma’s new single, “Hawái,” to celebrate.
“Let’s go, let’s go band,” Neymar’s teammate, Ángel Di María, captioned the clip in Spanish. “Always united.”
The track was a peculiar choice since Maluma, 26, wrote it about Neymar and Barulích’s relationship following his split from the model.
In July, a source told us, “Maluma did not tell Natalia about the song. He wrote it based off of his own personal experiences.”
“Hawái has the Papi Juancho alter-ego effect on everyone, including players like him,” an insider told us of Neymar’s apparent diss. “Papi Juancho” is a nickname used to reference Maluma’s alter-ego of a “player, lover, and sexy persona.”
Despite the back and forth, a source previously told us there are “no hard feelings” between Maluma and Barulích.
