Viviane Araujo robbed in downtown Rio de Janeiro last Wednesday night

Ms. Araujo, queen of the Salgueiro samba school, was waiting in a car as she prepared to enter a movie theater premiering State of Exception. Vivi starred in the film and was there to promote the film’s opening night. In the movie, Vivi plays the role of a policeman’s wife.

According to Vivi, “I was in the car waiting to enter the festival and was assaulted. They stole my phone and my watch. I was not hurt and I do not think they recognized me. There were two guys with guns. I am still very nervous. They stole the purse of my aide, Deborah Martinez, with everything inside. This was the first time I was assaulted like this.”

Later she added, “It’s all right, thank God. My secretary came from home and brought the spare key. My aide is filling out the police report. I was just scared because they were armed.”

Strangely, Vivi got robbed a few days before this event when on Sunday, September 30, somebody stole her cell phone at a Gay Pride parade. No force was used in this earlier robbery, however.
