Rape lawsuit against Christiano Ronaldo dropped by his accuser

The rape lawsuit filed against football star Cristiano Ronaldo in the United States has been quietly dropped by the accuser.

Bloomberg repots that a notice of voluntary dismissal was reportedly filed in May in a Nevada State Courtin Las Vegas, but the reasons for it are not clear at this time as the filing does not say whether a settlement was reached with the Portuguese superstar regarding the rape case.

In September 2018, Kathryn Mayorga, now 34, claimed the Juventus player had attacked her in the penthouse of a Las Vegas hotel in 2009 when she was 25 and was paid  $375,000 in hush money.

She said she was forced to sign a non-disclosure agreement by Ronaldo’s lawyers at the time, but reopened the case and filed charges in Las Vegas, demanding $200,000 in damages.

However, Ronaldo denied the allegations on social media, and said that whatever happened between the two was consensual.

In October, Ronaldo said: “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 will thereby allow me to await with tranquillity the results of any and all investigations.”

With a notice of voluntary dismissal filed by Mayorga’s lawyers, the case is now effectively closed.
