'Celebrity Big Brother' Star Jasmine Lennard Accuses Cristiano Ronaldo of Abuse
Cristiano Ronaldo has been asked for a DNA sample as he cooperates with police in Las Vegas over allegations he raped USA woman Kathryn Mayorga in the city in 2009, according to American media reports.
Cristiano Ronaldo's lawyer, Peter S. Christiansen, has refused to make a statement on the latest developments in the case.
But the investigation ended a short time later because Las Vegas police say she only identified her attacker as a European soccer player - not by name - and did not say where the incident took place.
American Kathryn Mayorga has accused Ronaldo of sexually assaulting her in a hotel in Las Vegas in 2009, something the Portugal and Juventus forward has strenuously refuted.
Ronaldo, who joined Juventus in July after nine years with Real Madrid, has maintained his innocence in all public comments and statements since the accusation was published, initially dismissing the story as "fake news" in a casual Instagram Live video before issuing more formal statements through his representation.
Mayorga, now 34, reported to police that she'd been raped and received a medical examination.
Ronaldo then allegedly raped Mayorga, despite her screaming "no", before saying: "Sorry, I'm usually a gentleman". Her attorneys say she was paid $375,000 in hush money.
