Ronaldo insists sex was ‘completely consensual’

One of Ronaldo's major sponsors, Nike, said it is "deeply concerned by the disturbing allegations".

A lawsuit filed September 27 in Nevada state court seeks to void the non-disclosure agreement that Mayorga's attorneys say she signed while accepting $375,000 to keep quiet.

It had been reported by a Portuguese newspaper that Ronaldo plans to claim the Spanish club put pressure on him to sign a settlement with Mayorga.

Now his lawyer, Peter S. Christiansen, has issued a statement through Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes' website.

In the statement the lawyer representing Ronaldo states: 'What occurred in 2009 in Las Vegas was consensual in nature.

Der Spiegel had reported about documents with Ronaldo's alleged statements on the incident.

Christiansen declined to comment further.

Las Vegas police say they have reopened a sexual assault investigation of the encounter between Ronaldo and Mayorga.

The lawyers followed with the lawsuit about two weeks ago.

The woman also alleges the former Manchester United and Real Madrid player dispatched a team of "fixers" to obstruct the criminal investigation and trick her into keeping quiet for $375,000 (€325,000).

Cristiano Ronaldo denies raping Kathryn Mayorga, and insists their encounter was "consensual".

Apart from this, it features WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, micro USB, 3.5mm audio jack and micro SIM slot. The user experience is pretty much stock and except for the Nokia Camera app, there's no customisation whatsoever.

The psychiatrist, Norton Roitman, has testified numerous times as an expert witness in state court in Las Vegas. "I pushed him away and kept saying, "No".

That is nearly certainly a reference to Der Spiegel, the German publication which reported the existence of Ronaldo's settlement in 2017 and published Mayorga's account last month.

Ronaldo had previously rubbished the allegations, calling Der Spiegel's report as "fake news" and his legal representatives would sue the magazine.

"So that there are no doubts: Cristiano Ronaldo vehemently denies all the accusations in this civil action", the statement says.

By 2015 dozens of entities (including law firms) in different parts of Europe were attacked and saw a lot of information on their electronic equipment being stolen by a hacker.

He said the hacker then "tried to sell such information" after "significant parts" had been "altered and/or completely forged".

According to Correio da Manha, the agreement was completed in January of 2010, even though Ronaldo was against it and had maintained his innocence.

Rather, it's claimed Ronaldo entered into the agreement on the advice of his advisors, in order to end "outrageous accusations made against him".

"Although Cristiano Ronaldo is accustomed to media attention, inherent in the fact that he is a famous person, it is absolutely deplorable that the media continue to propagate and stimulate an intentional defamation campaign based on stolen and easily manipulated digital documents".

'Mr Ronaldo will leave future discussions of any and all legal matters to his attorneys here and in Europe.
