LAS VEGAS, NV. (THECOUNT) — A Las Vegas woman who was paid a hefty $375,000 complements of soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, is now suing him claiming she was raped in 2009.

Kathryn Mayorga, whose age was not provided, claims in a new lawsuit that Ronaldo and his team of “fixers,” took advantage of her fragile emotional state to coerce her into signing a settlement and nondisclosure agreement in 2009.


Mayorga received a whopping $375,000 in exchange for her silence; her lawsuit seeks to void the settlement and agreement.

Kathryn Mayorga says the Portuguese footballer raped her in a Las Vegas hotel in 2009 while she repeatedly screamed no, according to a lawsuit filed Friday in Clark County. After the attack, according to the lawsuit, Ronaldo apologized, “stating he was sorry, he was usually a gentleman.” The lawsuit alleges that Ronaldo himself told his team of fixers that “she said ‘no’ and ‘stop’ several times.” source

Mayorga’s attorney declined to comment beyond what was laid out in the lawsuit.

Ronaldo’s representatives denied the rape allegations when German publication Der Spiegel first reported them in 2017. After the outlet broke news of the lawsuit Friday in an interview with Mayorga, Ronaldo’s lawyer called the reporting “blatantly illegal.”
