Cristiano Ronaldo firmly denies rape allegations, calls it an 'abominable crime'

Cristiano Ronaldo denied rape accusations against him on Wednesday, saying that he will do whatever is needed to clear his name but won't be speaking to the media regarding the issue. Stovall said his client has a learning disability that prevented her from being able to recognize the consequences of the nondisclosure agreement, rendering it voidable, and that the settlement documents "are evidence of a criminal conspiracy to hide and obstruct the prosecution of that sexual assault".

"They wanna promote by my name, it's normal".

"She's not going to be interviewed", the attorney said.

The suite has a jacuzzi and while Ms Mayorga was changing, the court papers seen by Der Spiegel claim he walked in, exposed himself and asked her to engage in a sex act.

Meanwhile, the LVMPD says they've reopened the investigation - but Ronaldo has not been charged with a crime. Yeah but it's part of the job.

He told the magazine: "The goal of this lawsuit is to hold Cristiano Ronaldo responsible within a civil court of law for the injuries he has caused Kathryn Mayorga and the consequences of those injuries".

The lawsuit was filed by Leslie Mark Stovall, lawyer for complainant Mayorga. The lawsuit alleges they monitored Mayorga, her friends and family as well as law enforcement to "develop and implement a strategy" to prevent or delay public disclosure of the allegations and criminal prosecution of Ronaldo.

Police authorities have reported that they retain the medical examination to which the woman was subjected at the time, although the case didn't reach a trial.

However, Mayorga refused to tell police the location of the alleged attack or to identify a suspect other than to say he was a European soccer player, OcampoGomez said. He went from Manchester United to Real Madrid in 2009 for a then-record sum of 94 million euros, or about $130 million. The Italian club declined to comment on the Der Spiegel report.

Soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has fired off his most forceful denial yet of the allegations that he raped a model-turned-teacher after a night of partying at a Las Vegas nightclub.

The lawsuit, which seeks more than $200,000 in damages, names as defendants Ronaldo and an unnamed team of fixers described as "personal reputation protection specialists" hired to make the situation go away.
