Ronaldo ac­cused of rape

The Guardian Weekly - - International News -

A 34-year-old Amer­i­can, Kathryn May­orga, who al­leges that Cris­tiano Ronaldo raped her, has re­vealed de­tails of the events she claims took place in Las Ve­gas in 2009. May­orga claims the su­per­star foot­baller forced her to have sex with him in the bath­room of his pent­house suite, de­spite re­peat­edly be­ing told not to. May­orga also re­vealed the pro­tracted le­gal process by which she sub­se­quently agreed to set­tle the claims. It was an agree­ment that, her lawyers claim, was never hon­oured by Ronaldo.

May­orga said in an interview with Der Spiegel that she had cho­sen to go pub­lic in the wake of the #Me­Too rev­e­la­tions. Ronaldo cat­e­gor­i­cally de­nies all the al­le­ga­tions and says that sex be­tween the pair was con­sen­sual. His lawyer, Chris­tian Schertz, said the Spiegel re­port “is man­i­festly il­le­gal” and he would be seek­ing dam­ages.
