Las Vegas woman sues Cristiano Ronaldo, accuses him of rape

Juventus v Napoli

Kathryn Mayorga, 34, of Las Vegas, accused Ronaldo, in a 32-page complaint filed last month with a district court in Nevada, of raping her on Jun 13, 2009.

The incident allegedly happened in 2009, and back then, Ronaldo's representatives and the lawyer of the victim reportedly agreed to a $375 000 (R5.4 million) out-of-court settlement for her to remain silent.

An attorney for Ronaldo, Christian Schertz in Berlin, did not immediately respond to emails from AP. The lawsuit said Mayorga also went to a hospital, where a sexual assault medical examination was conducted.

Ronaldo was serving a one-match suspension after being sent off in Juve's match with Valencia a fortnight ago and watched on from the stands at the Juventus Stadium alongside girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez and seven-year-old son Cristiano Jr. "It's normal. They want to be famous", he continued.

Mayorga's lawyers are to hold a news conference in Las Vegas at 3:00 pm Pacific time (0000 GMT) on Wednesday to discuss the case. But it is part of the job.
