The FC Barcelona legend lost his mother earlier this year, and the devastating news is said to have hit him hard.

According to close friends, the 2002 FIFA World Cup winner is now drinking more excessively than before.

"Every day is a party," Ronaldinho's friends told Brazilian newspaper Extra, as cited by Marca.

"He starts drinking vodka, whiskey, gin in the morning, and only stops drinking the next morning.

"It is not something of late, but we noticed that it became more intense after his mother's death."

Here are some other players who battled with alcohol and drugs:

Another insider said that Ronaldinho, who spent five months in a Paraguayan prison last year after being caught with a fake passport, has continued to party up a storm in his Brazil mansion, despite his mother having passed away after contracting COVID-19.

"He had a New Year's Eve party and everything," another friend added.

"Several friends from Rio went there because he feels very lonely in that immense place where he lives.

"He has a barbecue, he dances, he always goes far. He lives in a fortress with everything he needs.

"Ronaldo has a huge heart and tries to be generous with his friends. But not all of them are true friends, and I see a lot of damage being done to him."
