Facing the breakaway, “Planeta Xuxa”, which was still on the air at the time of the fight, had its shortest season (from April 7 to July 28). One of the moments that marked the feud between the two was when Xuxa replied to Marilyn: “Do your job and I’ll do mine.”

For many years, Xuxa and Marlene kept silent about what happened. In 2015, Xuxa addressed the topic in an interview with Record, saying she was tired of being “dominated” by a director. After that, the presenter made several statements and outbursts about the relationship with her ex-partner, such as being a “dummy”, “stolen” and feeling “used”.

In April 2021, after Xuxa’s statements offended her during an interview with journalist Luís Erlanger, Marlene Mattos filed a complaint against the presenter for defamation. In September, the Public Prosecutor’s Office dismissed the case and acquitted Rainha dos Baixinhos.

“Marilyn didn’t want a black baguette, but I was delighted with her beauty,” the Queen accused the Little People.
