Cibele Dorsa (October 14, 1974 – March 26, 2011) was a Brazilian actress, model and writer. She also appeared on the cover of the April 2008 issue of Playboy Brazil.[1][2]


Personal life

Dorsa had a relationship with the Brazilian entrepreneur Fernando Oliva with whom she had a son, also named Fernando. Later she married and divorced the Brazilian show jumping rider Alvaro de Miranda Neto, who subsequently married Athina Onassis Roussel. Dorsa and Miranda had a daughter named Viviane.[3]

On June 7, 2008, Cibele Dorsa suffered a grave car accident that killed the friend who drove the car and caused her severe injuries. She stayed one month in hospital and was immobilized for two more months. She wrote a book titled 5:00 da Manhã (meaning 5:00 A.M. in Portuguese) about this tragic experience. The title is a reference to the hour when the accident occurred. [4]

In 2010, she started a relationship with the E! Brazil TV presenter Gilberto Scarpa. They planned to get married in April 2011 but Scarpa committed suicide by jumping out of their apartment on January 30, 2011. Scarpa jumped through the same window that Cibele Dorsa would less than two months later. [5]


Dorsa died on March 26, 2011 after having fallen from a window on the seventh floor of her apartment building in Morumbi, São Paulo. The death was being investigated as a probable suicide.[6][7] The suicide was confirmed by messages posted in her Twitter and a suicide letter addressed to her children.[8]
