Cristiano Ronaldo Dismisses Rape Allegations As "Fake News"

  • Cristiano Ronaldo moved to Italian powerhouse Juventus in the summer

Kathryn Mayorga, the accuser, claims that during a fun night in Las Vegas back in 2009, Cristiano Ronald raped her as she shouted "no, no, no" and then paid $375,000 for her silence.

Kathryn Mayorga sued Ronaldo in a district court in Clark County, Nevada on Thursday, and is also seeking to void a $US375,000 ($278,300) settlement she alleges she was coerced into signing to keep quiet, according to the complaint seen by Reuters and according to Ms Mayorga's lawyer.

She says he apologized after it was over, "stating he was sorry, he was usually a gentleman".

The footballer, who now plays for Italian club Juventus, denied the claim last night on Instagram, calling the story "fake news".

"What they said today, fake - fake news".

"They want to promote [themselves by using] my name". But it is part of the job. "I'm [a] happy man and all, all good".

Initially, she refused to identify Ronaldo to police, fearing public humiliation, her complaint says.

According to the woman, they met at the Palms Hotel and Casino, and that is when the famous sportsman invited her and a group of her pals to his hotel suite.

These claims have been denied by Ronaldo's legal team as "blatantly illegal".

Ms Mayorga, 34, is reported to have filed a rape report with Las Vegas police shortly after the alleged incident.

Third woman accuses Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct

Leslie Stovall, Ms Mayorga's lawyer, said in a statement on Monday his client wanted to, "obtain justice by holding Cristiano Ronaldo accountable for his conduct".

It said the assault had left her with "severe emotional and bodily injuries including but not limited to anal contusions, posttraumatic stress disorder and major depression".

But while she was changing, Ronaldo, 33, entered the room, exposed himself and asked her to perform a sex act.

Ronaldo has since denied the allegations against him through a representative, calling them "untruthful and false".

Der Spiegel's deputy editor-in-chief, Alfred Weinzierl, on Sunday said the magazine stood fully by its story. She had taken notice of comments about the athlete's desirability, she told the magazine, including statements to the effect of, "As if Ronaldo even needs to rape a woman".

"He wouldn't let me leave", Mayorga told Der Spiegel.

"Basically he. he begged me to touch his penis for 30 seconds", she said.

After playing for Manchester United and Real Madrid, he joined Serie A heavyweights Juventus for a reported US$117 million (NZ$177m) transfer fee.

Ronaldo is one of the biggest names in world sport.

Ronaldo's girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez, is standing by him as well.
