Ronaldo’s Rape Case Gets Messier, Accuser Says He Gagged Her

The Lawyer of the woman accusing Cristiano Ronaldo of rape, Kathryn Mayorga, has through her lawyer alleged that the Portuguese footballer paid “personal reputation protection specialists” about $1,000,000.

The reputation specialists, the lawyers claimed, were employed by Ronaldo in the UK, US and Portugal to discredit Mayorga and her claims that she was sexually assaulted by the footballer in Las Vegas in 2009.

Mr Stovall claims the “fixers” coerced the former model into accepting £288,000 never to discuss the alleged assault in Ronaldo’s £775-a-night suite at the Palms Palace.

Papers handed to the lawyer by whistleblowing website Football Leaks allegedly detail the star’s use of the reputation managers. Mr Stovall has already complained to Las Vegas police and now wants the FBI, Scotland Yard and Portuguese police to investigate.

He told the Mirror: “I’m going to refer the documents [to investigators] to determine whether or not they have [committed] any criminal offences… conspiracy to obstruct, obstruction, criminal fraud and criminal libel.”

Last week Ms Mayorga tried to overturn her 2010 non-disclosure deal, arguing she was bullied into signing it.

Ronaldo, 33, has repeatedly denied Ms Mayorga’s claims. He tweeted: “I firmly deny the accusations… Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in.

“Keen as I may be to clear my name, I refuse to feed the media spectacle created by people seeking to promote themselves at my expense. My clear conscience will allow me to await with tranquillity the results of investigations.”
