Cristiano Ronaldo’s lawyers have submitted documents to the court asking a US judge in Las Vegas to end or must arrange negotiations to resolve the case of Kathryn Mayorga – a former Nevada model who alleges the superstar Portuguese raped her in 2009.
According to AP, Ronaldo’s lawyer in Las Vegas, Peter Christiansen said Ronaldo has always affirmed that his relationship with Mayorga (36 years old) was a consensus, so he filed for dismissing the lawsuit. According to the lawyer, a document was filed on October 14 in a US court to ask the judge to make a decision for out-of-court negotiations to resolve the case.
The lawyers representing Mayorga did not answer AP questions over the phone, email and text messages related to two recent court records about her lawsuit stemming from a 2010 secret deal and paid $375,000 from Ronaldo to ask her to keep quiet about her relationship with CR7.
Mayorga’s lawyers accused Ronaldo of breaching contracts, coercion and fraud. Therefore, the former American model wants to cancel the contract in 2010 and must be compensated at least $ 200,000 from Ronaldo.
Mayorga’s lawyer said she did not break the commitment, and accused Ronaldo or the superstar’s associates of allowing the publication in European media publications in 2017. Meanwhile, the lawyers of the striker who plays for Juventus club that the confidential information was leaked by a hacker attack and it is being used by Mayorga to damage Ronaldo’s reputation. Therefore, CR7 lawyers asked the US court to issue a decision to end or dismiss the case that Ronaldo raped Mayorga in Las Vegas in 2009.
Although the lawsuit caused Ronaldo to be in turmoil when his family life was turned upside down, the 34-year-old superstar still maintained a good performance at Juventus and Portugal. CR7 has just become the 6th player in the history of world football to reach the milestone of 700 goals in official matches of the national team and the club.
