Ronaldo: I didn't rape Mayorga, we agreed to have sex

Juventus player, Cristiano Ronaldo has stated that what he had with his rape accuser, Kathryn Mayorga, was completely consensual. The player released this statement through his lawyer Peter Christiansen who said “Ronaldo is forced to break his silence”.

“Once again, for the avoidance of doubt, Cristiano Ronaldo’s position has always been, and continues to be, that what happened in 2009 in Las Vegas was completely consensual.”

Last week, the Police in Las Vegas announced that they were reopening an investigation into allegations made by a former model, Kathryn Mayorga, concerning an incident in 2009.

Though the police never mentioned the former Real Madrid star as involved, he however vehemently denied the rape accusations as carried by the press.

“I firmly deny the accusations being issued against me,” the 33-year-old said in a statement.

“Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in.”

According to Mayorga, she was pressured into signing a non-disclosure agreement in 2010 to keep the alleged rape secret. She is now seeking at least $200,000 in penalties and damages.

“Cristiano Ronaldo does not deny that he agreed to conclude an agreement,” added Christiansen.

“This agreement is by no means a confession of guilt. What happened was simply that Cristiano Ronaldo merely followed the advice of his advisers in order to put an end to the insulting accusations made against him in order to avoid attempts, such as those now witnessed, to destroy a reputation built thanks to intense work, great athleticism and ethically impeccable behaviour.”

Christiansen added “documents that allegedly contain statements by Cristiano Ronaldo and were reproduced in the media are pure invention.”

His mother Dolores Aveiro and his sister Katia Aveiro have both launched a campaign to seek justice for the footballer.

Sharing a picture on their social media pages showing Ronaldo in Superman costume, they wrote:

‘I want to see who has the courage to put this photo on their profile for a week and make a chain for him..for Portugal, for him, for us and for the union of our people, for justice. He deserves it.’

The picture of Ronaldo carried two hashtags in Portuguese. One translates as ‘#Ronaldo, we are with you to the end’ and the other – #Justicacr7 – as ‘#Justice for CR7.’
