Ouch! Model Accuses Ronaldo Of Raping Her, He Denies It

Cristiano Ronaldo allegedly raped a US model and then said “sorry, I’m usually a gentleman”, according to court papers filed in Las Vegas which the star has branded “fake news”, Daily Mail reports

Kathryn Mayorga, a 34-year-old teacher who was an aspiring model at the time of the alleged assault, claims Ronaldo raped her in a bathroom at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas in the early hours of June 13, 2009.

The ex-Man United, 33, player spoke out in a video on Instagram just hours after her lawyer filed court documents about the case. Grinning into the camera, he said, ‘No, no, no, no, no. What did they say today? Fake, fake news.’

According to documents filed at Clark County District Court on Friday, the footballer invited Mayorga and a friend to his penthouse suite “to enjoy the view of the Las Vegas Strip”. Mayorga claims she refused to get into his hot tub because she did not want to ruin her dress, then Ronaldo offered her some athletic shorts and a T-shirt and pointed her towards a bathroom where she could change.
The court documents state that as she was changing, Ronaldo entered the bathroom, exposed himself and asked her to perform a sex act.
the striker then turned Mayorga on to her side, and that even though she was screaming “no, no, no!”, she was raped by the star.
The documents claim Ronaldo left the bedroom after the assault, “stating he was sorry, he was usually a gentleman”… She later hired a lawyer, and in 2010 negotiated a £287,000 out-of-court settlement. As part of that deal, she agreed never to go public with her allegations. She is now saying that she only signed the settlement because she was “terrified of retaliation’ from Ronaldo.

She says she has been left traumatised by the incident and has now gone public, in part because of the #MeToo movement.
