Cristiano Ronaldo’s rape accuser Kathryn Mayorga demands £56m from the Juventus star.
Former model, Kathryn Mayorga accused Cristiano Ronaldo of sexually assaulting her in a hotel room in Las Vegas back in 2009. She said that Ronaldo did the misdeed after meeting her on a night out when she was 25-years-old. However, Ronaldo denied the allegation in the past.
He said that “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.”
As per the report by the Sun, Mayorga is seeking £18m for “past pain and suffering”, £18m for “future pain and suffering” and £18m in punitive damages. The rest is of her expenses in the legal process, which includes legal fees of £1.1m.
The demanding amount is equal to two years of the Juventus star’s salary. Mayorga had accepted £270,000 as part of an out-of-court non-disclosure settlement.
The scandal and allegation on some legendary footballers is not a new thing. But this recent one will surely shake the image of the Portuguese legend.
