Cristiano Ronaldo’s lawyer have denied allegations made by a German magazine the Juventus star raped a woman in Las Vegas in 2009.
The Portuguese is also seeking compensation from the magazine for “moral damages in an amount corresponding to the gravity of the infringement, which is probably one of the most serious violations of personal rights in recent years.”
Der Speigel ran a story on claiming Ronaldo met the victim named Kathryn Mayorga at a club and then raped her in June 2009 at a Palms Place hotel room in Las Vegas.
The 34-year-old claims she repeatedly told the superstar ‘no’ but he carried on and ignored her pleas.
He is said to have fallen to his knees and apologised afterwards.
Leslie Mark Stovall, Mayorga’s lawyer, claims the matter was settled with an out-of-court settlement which effectively silenced his client in return for USD 375K.
