You have to hand it to Andressa Urach: She doesn't give up easy.

One week after she welcomed Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal to the World Cup by painting the soccer star's jersey on her nude torso, the Brazilian model and reality TV star showed up to the team's training session in Sao Paulo on Wednesday. Her goal? To grab the attention of Ronaldo as the ailing star prepares for Sunday's match against the United States.

Urach, however, was removed from the premises after gaining access with a press credential on behalf of a Brazilian television station that she is working with. Terra.com reports that security at Portugal's camp had been enhanced since last week when a boy ran on the field to get Ronaldo's autograph.

"I came to say good luck to (Ronaldo) and got kicked out!" Urach wrote on her social media accounts. "Whatever happened to freedom of expression?"

Urach attracted plenty of attention on June 11 with her bodypainting stunt before being asked to cover up and leave. (She did, but not before disrobing again to do an interview that's been a hit on YouTube.)

Urach's notorious ties to Ronaldo, however, go back much farther than this World Cup.

Urach claimed in 2013 that she and Ronaldo were having an affair together. The claim made headlines in Europe as the alleged affair had supposedly taken place just 48 hours before Real Madrid's 4-0 loss to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

Ronaldo, who dates Russian model Irina Shayk, vehemently denied the affair.

Here's what Ronaldo wrote on Twitter at the time:

"I was informed that The Sun (newspaper), faithful to its editorial line, will publish an article where is given voice to a so called Andressa — someone seeking the limelight on my account.

‘And I wonder why this happens one day before a very important game for my team. Deeply outraged by a situation intended, in vain, to affect my personal life."

Many Ronaldo fans have filled up Urach's Facebook and Instagram accounts with messages — most of them not very polite — to leave their hero alone.

Urach is no stranger to seeking the spotlight. Her Wikipedia entry lists her as the runnerup in Brazil's "Miss Bumbum" competiton in 2012 and a contestant on the sixth season of "The Farm," a Brazilian reality show.

Portugal opened its World Cup with a 4-0 loss to Germany on Sunday and Ronaldo's health for the U.S. match is in question. If both don't bounce back against the United States, Urach may not have many more opportunities to "say good luck" to Ronaldo.
