Controversy is the name of the game when Cristiano Ronaldo is involved. A Las Vegas woman, who goes by the name of Kathryn Myorga is challenging Ronaldo over a 2009 legal settlement in which the soccer superstar agreed to pay her $375,000 to keep silent over an alleged sexual assault.
The accuser came forward Friday as the victim of the alleged incident. She spoke with German publication Der Spiegel and claimed that Ronaldo anally raped her at the Palms Place Hotel in Las Vegas.
According to Reuters, Ronaldo has denied all of what his lawyers called “blatantly illegal” accusations and reportedly plans to sue Der Spiegel for “an inadmissible reporting of suspicions in the area of privacy.”
Der Spiegel were the first to bring the existence of the settlement and the alleged incident to light last year, reporting Mayorga under the pseudonym Susan K.
At the time of the alleged rape in 2009, Mayorga was reportedly 25 years old and met Ronaldo in the VIP section of a Las Vegas nightclub. CR7 was well in his prime and was closing in on a massive 80 million pounds transfer to Real Madrid. Mayorga claimed the following happened in a letter written during her legal battle and confirmed them with Der Spiegel on Friday:
In the letter that she wrote to Ronaldo, K. describes what happened later that night of partying. She writes that she gave him her number. That he called her later and invited her to a party. Afterward, they went to his penthouse. When K. arrived together with a girlfriend, she writes that Ronaldo and his friends climbed into the Jacuzzi. And that he offered her swimwear. She claims that he followed her as she went to change, and that the two kissed. But K. writes that this wasn’t enough for Ronaldo. She writes that she wanted to go back to the others. She continues that he took her and put her on the bed. That she used both hands as she attempted to protect herself. “I screamed NO NO NO NO NO NOOOO over and over I begged you to stop. I was never so scared in my life,” K. writes in the letter.
After it was over, Ronaldo allegedly turned to her again and supposedly said 99 percent of the time he was a good guy, but that he doesn’t know what happened to that 1 percent. That’s what K. writes in her letter.
Mayorga said she has since faced emotional trauma from the incident, a common occurrence with sexual assaults.
“I’ve had like these serious breakdowns,” she told the magazine. “And again, blaming of the rape. And I blame him, and I blame myself for signing that thing.”
