I didn’t rape Mayorga, what we had was consensual – Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo has once again denied raping Kathryn Mayorga as he stated that what they both had in 2009 was completely consensual. According to his lawyer Peter Christiansen in a statement released through Gestifute, the company which manages the player’s affairs, “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.”

The Las Vegas Police last week announced that they were reopening an investigation into a 2009 rape allegation made by a former model, Kathryn Mayorga. Though the Police didn’t mention the player’s name, Ronaldo has however vehemently denied the rape accusations.

“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.”

Mayorga also claims she was made to sign a non-disclosure agreement in 2010 to keep quiet about the alleged rape.

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

“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.”
