A Las Vegas woman has sued Cristiano Ronaldo for an alleged rape at a Las Vegas hotel in 2009, according to a complaint filed by her lawyer.
Kathryn Mayorga sued Ronaldo in a district court in Clark County, Nevada on Thursday.
She is also seeking to void a $375,000 settlement which she accuses Ronaldo and his team of taking advantage of her fragile emotional state to forcing her into signing a settlement and nondisclosure agreement in 2009.
The lawsuit claims that Ronaldo met Mayorga at a Las Vegas nightclub in June 2009 and the next night invited a group of people,
including Mayorga, back to the penthouse suite where he was staying.
That night, the lawsuit contends,
Christiano asked the woman to perform a sexual act on him in a bathroom
as she was changing into attire to wear in a hot tub. He then pulled her into a bedroom and
raped her as she screamed "no, no, no," the lawsuit said.
"When Cristiano Ronaldo completed the sexual assault of the plaintiff, he allowed her to leave the bedroom stating he was sorry,
he was usually a gentleman," the lawsuit said.
When reached by CNN, Mayorga’s attorney declined to respond beyond what was said in the lawsuit.
Ronaldo’s agents denied the rape accusations when German publication Der Spiegel first reported them in 2017.
His lawyer referred to the allegations as “blatantly illegal.”
Ronaldo also responded on Instagram saying,
“What they said today, fake -- fake news. They want to promote by my name. It’s normal. They want to be famous -- to say my name.
Yeah but it’s part of the job. I’m (a) happy man and all, all good.”
The 33 year old and a Portuguese is undeniably one of the best footballer the world has ever seen.
He plays for Juventus and Portugal national team as a forward.
