Nevada woman sues Ronaldo for alleged sexual assault

ESPN  YouTube

Cristiano Ronaldo has dismissed as "fake news" accusations by a USA woman who alleges she was raped by the Portuguese footballer in 2009.

The magazine reported that the two reached an out-of-court agreement which involved her remaining silent on the alleged rape and him paying her $375,000 (£275,000).

Indeed, Ronaldo's lawyers say they will sue Der Spiegel magazine, which originally reported the allegations.

Finally, she also alleges that Ronaldo used a team of "personal reputation protection specialists" to keep tabs on her and intimidate her by threatening to claim that she consented to sex with the soccer player.

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", the 33-year-old star of the Portuguese national team said in a post that was later deleted. "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 court filings, she claims Ronaldo invited her, her friend and others to his penthouse suite. Mayorga also revealed the protracted legal process by which she subsequently agreed to settle the claims. A nurse who examined her said the same thing, she says in the lawsuit.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police yesterday said an incident report with the number listed in Mayorga's lawsuit was filed on the night of the alleged attack, and said the case was reopened last month after the victim came forward with new information. She only wanted to report a sexual assault and submit to a medical exam, he said.

It said the assault had left her with "severe emotional and bodily injuries" and "major depression".

Der Spiegel alleged he raped someone past year as well but a rep for Ronaldo denied it vehemently.

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

As Mayorga was changing into a bathing suit in the bathroom, Ronaldo entered the adjoining bedroom and reportedly exposed himself to her, asking her to touch his penis and perform oral sex on him.

She described to the German magazine why she accepted the hush money in the first place - paid from a company account in the British Virgin Islands. He's played for the top clubs, including Spain's Real Madrid and England's Manchester United, and joined Juventus this summer for a reported $117 million transfer fee.
