Two more women are being prepared to step up against Juventus player Cristiano Ronaldo who is currently accused of rape.
Ronaldo was accused by Kathryn Mayorga of raping her when they met in Las Vegas in 2009. Two more women with similar claims are currently being checked by Lawyer Leslie Stovall who represents Mayorga.
Report has it that one woman claims she was raped by Ronaldo after a party.
Another reportedly alleges she was “hurt by Ronaldo” and a third had claimed she entered a non-disclosure agreement with him in 2009.
It is not clear if the second and third women accused Ronaldo of sexual misconduct.
Stovall told The Sun: “I am following up to verify this information.”
However, the former Real Madrid player has denied the rape allegation stating that it is against everything he stands for.
“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 (sic) will thereby allow me to await with tranquillity the results of any and all investigations,” he said.
Ronaldo: After Mayorga, two more women to step up with allegations
According to Mayorga, she met the star player on the evening of 12 June 2009 at the Rain Nightclub in the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The star player invited her to join guests in a hot tub but she declined because she did not have a bathing suit.
Ronaldo however offered her clothing and followed her into a bathroom where he demanded she perform oral sex.
When she rejected his advance, the suit claims Ronaldo pulled her into a bedroom and anally raped her while she screamed ‘no, no, no’.
Shortly after the statement from the police on Tuesday, Ronaldo took to Instagram to label the allegations as ‘fake news’.
During a live chat with fans he said: ‘What they said today, fake – fake news.’
The post has since been deleted.
In a statement released, his lawyer Christian Schertz, said he would seek legal redress for his client from the magazine that published the allegation.
