    A woman from the United States has leveled serious accusations against Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese soccer star, says Kathryn Mayorga, 34, raped her in Las Vegas in 2009. Later, Ronaldo paid her $375,000 so that she would never again speak about that night. Her lawyer, the German newsmagazine DER SPIEGEL reports in its latest issue, is now questioning the validity of that out-of-court settlement in a civil complaint in Nevada.

    In DER SPIEGEL, Mayorga has now spoken publicly for the first time about her encounter with Ronaldo nine years ago and tells her version of what took place in his hotel suite.

    Ronaldo, Mayorga claims, raped her anally. Afterwards, she says he asked her if she was in pain. "By this time, he's (...) on his knees. He says the 99 percent thing." He insisted, Mayorga says, that he was a "good guy" except for the "one percent."

    Ronaldo denies the accusations, the * was consensual, according to him. Mayorga's lawyer's claim relies in part on a document, which includes Ronaldo's description of what happened that night. In that document, the soccer player is quoted as saying: "She said no and stop several times."

    Was this accusation by a male, because if not I’m having trouble believing it.

    Do you think he would have paid her that if he was innocent in the first place?

    Yes, a very good chance that could be the case

    Businesses/car insurance companies do it all the time.

    Regardless of guilt, lawyers will draw up the cost of what it would cost if it were to go through a lengthy trial etc

    If the cost of a trial far outweighs the cost of a settlement then it will be settled, guilty or not doesn’t really come into it.

    Without knowing any facts, and assuming she was indeed raped, morally it's an absolute shambles that she took a pay off and was seemingly content enough with said pay off for X amount of time.

    If you get raped, go to the police.

    What about him being quoted as saying she asked him to stop several times?

    Is there a link to an actual official statement that he said this and not just a German paper translating a document?

    Not arguing the fact but I find it highly unlikely that Ronaldo would actually say something like that or his lawyer.

    Trying to do a bit of digging, it seems this German paper are the only ones that supposedly hold this transcript.

    I haven’t done any other reading on it, so I’ve no idea.

    Morally, I don’t think we can judge a rape victim of one of the worlds most popular stars going public and fighting it in court. Have you seen the reaction to things like this? Death threats, more rape threats, people dragging her name through the mud, being in fear anywhere you go because a Ronaldo fan or football fan might recognise you and take umbridge at ‘you’ getting one of the biggest ever footballing stars the jail.

    Weigh that up with being comfortable financially and able to just get your head down and quietly rebuild the shattered remains of your life, even then you would need to deal with your own guilt and shame at taking the easy way out at one of the most emotionally devastating times of your life.

    The two ways would require incredible strength, one would be slightly easier though.

    In the way that (unfortunately) a lot of claims are actually false (ruining the real claims), I always take these reports with a handful of salt.

    The cynic in me is more inclined to believe it was actually consensual and it wasn't till after the deed she brought up the rape claim, which was then settled for whatever reasons (see above @TimFloyd ) and now she is back at it.
    It's a bad way to look at a case, but without any other information or facts on these things, then I tend to err on the side of caution. It's a * shame that such a dreadful crime needs to be treaded so carefully, but due to it being such a terrible crime, it is equally a very damning accusation. Unfortunately for the majority of these cases that get brought up, it's usually the greed of the 'victim' that is driving it, and the crime never happened.

    Not to say it doesn't turn out the other way, and seriously wish it never happens to anyone. But unfortunately for victims, it's a serious accusation that others have ruined. For us in the public, we need to be a bit more sensible before we accuse as well. If we don't have the facts, similar to a jury, to prosecute, then we shouldn't.
