Real Madrid legend, Cristiano Ronaldo has said he returned to nightclub with rape accuser, Kathryn Mayorga after having cex.
Kathryn Mayorga, 34, says she left Ronaldo’s Las Vegas penthouse suite in June 2009 to drive to a hospital – but ended up going home instead.
Portuguese paper Correio da Manha said today:
“The version of CR7 is different: after [cex] he and Mayorga returned to Rain nightclub and spent several hours together.”
Lawyers for the Juventus footballer, 33, want to obtain CCTV footage from Rain at the Palms Hotel.
A source said:
“Any CCTV that showed Cristiano with Mayorga in the club after visiting his room would
support his version.”
But chances are slim as Rain closed in 2012.
Meanwhile, lawyer Peter S Christiansen said Ronaldo will “no longer stand silent”.
Citing a mutual release agreed with Mayorga in 2010, he said:
“Given the breach and the inflammatory accusations, [he] feels compelled to no longer stand silent. [He] vehemently denies all allegations.”
He added that Ronaldo made the 2010 agreement to thwart any bids “to destroy a reputation built upon hard work, athleticism and honour”.
Ronaldo “vehemently denies all accusations” made against him by Mayorga, who has has filed a lawsuit against the 33-year-old claiming he raped her in a Las Vegas hotel in 2009 before sending a team of ‘fixers’ to obstruct the criminal investigation and trick her into keeping quiet for $375,00 (£268,000).
Las Vegas police confirmed on Monday that they have reopened a sexual assault case from 2009.
Christiansen says Ronaldo’s position continues to be that “what happened in 2009 in Las Vegas was completely consensual.”
