'Celebrity Big Brother' Star Jasmine Lennard Accuses Cristiano Ronaldo of Abuse

Woman claims Ronaldo threatened to have her “cut up” and her body “thrown in a river”

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.

Alabama and Clemson are once again 1-2 after battling the the fourth time in as many seasons in the College Football Playoff. Justyn Ross caught six balls for 153 yards and a score for Clemson, which shut out 'Bama after leading 31-16 at the half.


Central to Der Spiegel's account is a questionnaire in which Ronaldo reportedly admits that Mayorga told him "no" and "stop" multiple times.

The dress Mayorga was wearing on the night of the alleged rape in 2009 is a key piece of evidence in the case.

The Journal reported investigators want to see whether Ronaldo's DNA matches DNA found on Kathryn Mayorga's dress.

She said she wanted the agreement to be declared void, explaining that she had gained the courage to speak out because of the #MeToo movement.

Ronaldo said on Twitter after the suit was filed that his "clear conscience" would allow him "to await with tranquility the results of any and all investigations".

Under Nevada law, there is no statute of limitations on investigations or potential charges stemming from such reports.
