A woman from U.S. files rape allegations against Cristiano Ronaldo (Der Spiegel)


According to well known German magazine Der Spiegel, a woman from United States has launched a rape allegation against Juventus and Portugal football star Cristiano Ronaldo.

Kathryn Mayorga, now 34, claimed that Ronaldo raped her in Las Vegas in 2009 and paid her $375,000 as hush money, reports Der Spiegel.

The German magazine goes on to say that Mayorga’s lawyer is currently ‘questioning the validity of that out-of-court settlement in a civil complaint in Nevada’.

The rape accusation was first reported one-and-a-half years ago by Der Spiegal, after receiving the related documents from Football Leaks – football version of WikiLeaks.

Mayorga has now publicly spoken for the first time about her encounter with Ronaldo through Der Spiegel, claiming that the football star raped her anally.


Mayorga is quoted by Der Spiegal as saying: “By this time, he’s (…) on his knees. He says the 99 percent thing.”

What’s more, Ronaldo reportedly insisted that he was a “good guy” except for the “one percent.”

Ronaldo denied the rape accusations last year, claiming the sex was consensual, but Mayorga’s lawyer exposed a document, which includes Ronaldo’s description of what happened, and Ronaldo was quoted as saying: “She said no and stop several times
