Ronaldo Denies Rape Allegation As Video Of Vegas Night Emerges

By Published October 03, 2018

Superstar Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo broke his silence over the rape allegations against him just as video footage of him and model, Kathryn Mayorgra dancing in a Vegas night club on the night in question emerges.

In the footage the pair is seen dancing hours before the alleged assault took place in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2009.

Kathryn Mayorga claim Ronaldo attacked her in the penthouse suite of the Palms Casino Resort — before allegedly apologising and saying he is "usually a gentleman", a claim the 33 year-old Portugal international vehemently denied, branding it "fake news".

In the video, filmed from a mobile phone, Ronaldo can be seen clasping a drink in one hand while his other hand is around Mayorga as they danced in the VIP area.

The model who is now a teacher, claims Ronaldo later invited her to join him in his jacuzzi before attacking her. The 34 year-old who took legal action against the footballer in 2010 reportedly received a $375,000 out of court settlement that came with a non-disclosure agreement.

Addressing the issue for the first time in a tweet, Ronaldo wrote: ‘’I firmly deny the accusations being issued against me. 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 conscious will thereby allow me to await with tranquillity the results of any and all investigations.

Meanwhile, Nike has issued a statement that they are deeply concerned by the disturbing allegations and will continue to closely monitor the situation.

Nike’s sponsorship contract with Ronaldo dates back to 2003.

>The case is currently under investigation after a court in Las Vegas decided to revisit the allegations.
