An American woman identified as Kathryn Mayorga has sued Cristiano Ronaldo for an alleged rape.
According to reports by Deadspin, Ronaldo had signed an out-of-court settlement in 2010 with Mayorga, who was then anonymous and had accused him of raping her in a Las Vegas hotel room.
However, Mayorga has come out to reveal her identity while also recounting the full story of her encounter with the footballer. As at then she was a 25 year old model.
Mayorga who now works a teacher, has also filed a new civil suit against Ronaldo in court, seeking to have the settlement agreement voided.
Although Ronaldo’s lawyers in a statement to Reuters have described the report as “Blatantly illegal”. a questionnaire answered by Ronaldo before the settlement has him to appear to admit that Mayorga did not consent to their sex that night.
The document had answers from Ronaldo that read:
She said no and stop several times.” “She said that she didn’t want to, but she made herself available.” “But she kept saying ‘no.’ ‘Don’t do it.’ ‘I’m not like the others.’ I apologized afterwards.”
Answering the question:
“Did Ms. C. say anything afterwards about the sex being too brutal?” Ronaldo said: “She didn’t complain about it being brutal. She complained that I forced her. She didn’t say anything about wanting to go to the police.”
Ronaldo’s lawyer had also said he intends to sue the magazine.
