Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo is accused of rape by an American woman.
The woman, named Kathryn Mayorga, tells in the German magazine Der Spiegel that Ronaldo raped her in a hotel in 2009 and then paid her $ 375,000 in silence. Her lawyer has filed a lawsuit against the footballer.
After the incident, the Portuguese international asked Mayorga if she was in pain. “Then he went to his knees and said,” I’m a good man for 99 percent, I do not know what’s with that one percent. ”
The 33-year-old Ronaldo denies having done something wrong. He says that the sex between him and Mayorga took place by mutual agreement. The footballer let his lawyers know in his turn to bring a case against Der Spiegel for publishing “undisguised, illegal accusations” of Mayorga.
Mayorga started a business after Football Leaks revelations
According to Der Spiegel, Mayorga started a business because of previous disclosures by Football Leaks. In a (hacked) e-mail to his lawyer, the attacker of Juventus described the night in question. “She repeatedly said ‘no’ and ‘stop’, but I did not want to listen.”
Ronaldo has a relationship with the Spanish Georgina Rodriguez, with whom he had a daughter in November last year. The five-time world footballer of the year had previously a twin, which was reportedly conceived by an American surrogate mother. He is also the father of an eight-year-old son, who would also have been conceived via a surrogate mother.
