Married Santos’ proposal

But teen said no


Long Island Rep. George Santos proposed to his then-teenage boyfriend five years before he and his wife divorced, according to a report.

“Good evening everyone! As you all may already know Pedro and I have decided to join our toothbrush­es! Lol and a very few friends have been selected to share this special moment with us!,” Santos wrote in a 2014 Facebook invite shared with the Daily Beast by Santos’ old roommate, Greg Morey-Parker.

Pedro Vilarva, who was 18 when he met the then26-year-old Santos in 2014, also told to the outlet that Santos (inset) invited friends to celebrate the engagement, although Vilarva never accepted the proposal.

“Thanks for sharing this very important day in our lives,” Santos wrote of the planned Nov. 23 celebratio­n at La Bonne Soupe in Midtown. However, the party “never happened,” Vilarva said. “He asked me 3x but I didn’t accept it,” Santos’ former lover told the Daily Beast via text message. “There was never a party [or] anything in regards to it.”

The public invite came just two years into Santos’ marriage to Uadla Vieira Santos, a Brazilian woman whom his housemates rarely saw and only knew as “a friend,” according to the Daily Beast.

Morey-Parker told the Daily Beast that Santos once “tried to get me to marry some Brazilian woman so she could get citizenshi­p,” saying he could make money from the deal. The report did not elaborate on when that suggestion was made.

Santos remained legally married until September 2019. After the Daily Beast article was posted, Santos said: “I will not give comment to slanderous accusation­s made by a person of the likes of Gregory [Morey-Parker].”
