Paulo Dybala, girlfriend censored by TikTok over controversial video

Arsenal target Paulo Dybala and his girlfriend Oriana Sabatini have been censored by TikTok after attempting the viral one-arm lift challenge.

The Juventus frontman lifted Sabatini up in the air under her thigh as the couple’s two pet dogs, Kaia and Bowen, looked on.

The model was nearly sent crashing into kitchen furniture by her boyfriend, touted as a potential replacement for on-loan Real Madrid player Martin Odegaard at Arsenal, in the pair’s attempts to emulate the online craze.

Sabatini posted the footage of their botched lift on Instagram after complaining it had been removed by TikTok censors for being unsuitable.

The footage showed the pretty brunette, also a singer and actress, grabbing at her crotch and yelling as she was flung forward in Dybala’s awkward attempt to elevate her using only his right forearm before they had another go, which wasn’t filmed.

Sabatini, who last March had to self-isolate with Dybala after contracting coronavirus, posted the original TikTok video she later uploaded on Instagram with the message: “TikTok at it again. They erased this so it’s gone to Instagram.”

One of her 32,000 fans offered his advice about what the pair were doing wrong, saying: “The problem is that Paulo’s arm is in the wrong place.

“He’s trying to lift Oriana up with his wrist and needs to put his forearm further forward.”

Juventus are reportedly ready to consider bids for the Argentine international, who has only made 16 appearances for Juventus in all competitions this season.

Arsenal is said to be planning a move for the 27-year-old if manager Mikel Arteta is unable to keep Odegaard at the North London club.

Chelsea and Tottenham are also understood to be interested in luring Dybala away from his current club.

He will enter the final year of his contract in Turin this summer.
