RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – Larissa Riquelme, who has been told for years that she looks like Bat Boy, is now dating the love of her life.

Larissa Riquelme, the lingerie model whose passionate support of Paraguay during the World Cup turned heads around the world, has reportedly been seen around Rio with Bat Boy.

The love affair was revealed after the Brazilian network Rede Globo, reported that the curvaceous model was assaulted in the Ipanema neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro. The assailants reportedly took a phone, passport and two digital cameras. After the incident, the beautiful soccer fan took to Twitter to reassure any rattled fans. “I’m fine, thank you all for your support!” She then wrote,  “Bat Boy is taking good care of me.”

After tweeting about Bat Boy, reporters around the world started working to put together the pieces of their love affair. Bat Boy was spotted several times in South Africa during the World Cup and Spain credited Bat Boy for leading them to the World Cup Title, but Larissa and Bat Boy were never seen together. Until now… WWN uncovered a photo (above) of Larissa and Bat Boy watching Paraguay when they defeated Japan to reach the quarterfinals of the cup.

During the World Cup, Riquelme pledged to run naked through the streets of Asuncion if Paraguay won the tournament. They did not, and Riquelme’s nude hopes ended in heartbreak. Ultimately, the gorgeous soccer fan decided to run naked after all as a present to the team’s players. While she has not yet made good on the promise, Riquelme recently frolicked in Brazil with Bat Boy. In an exclusive interview with WWN, Bat Boy says he will run naked with Larissa – in Paraguay, Brazil and in Los Angeles.

There are rumors that Larissa wants to marry Bat Boy, but Bat Boy has been a known “ladies-man” for years, so it’s going to be tough for her to get him to commit.  But she’s confident she can do it and finally tame the half-bat, half-boy. “Bat Boy and I were meant for each other. I want to spend the rest of my days rubbing his bald head, kissing his face and… giving him all my love.”

Jealous men from every corner of the world are determined to take Larissa away.  But Bat Boy just laughs at the thought of someone trying to steal her away. His deep belly laughs can be heard on three continents.
