  • ‘Fake news’: Ronaldo dismisses rape claims as lawyers set to sue German magazine

Cristiano Ronaldo has denied raping an American woman - describing the allegation as "fake news".

Kathryn Mayorga, 34, of Las Vegas, claims the 33-year-old Ronaldo raped her in a bathroom at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas in June 2009, the paper reported. The resulting lawsuit revealed that Ronaldo and his lawyers settled the matter with a $375 000 payment, where Mayorga signed a non-disclosure agreement.

But in an Instagram video, Ronaldo said: "They want to promote [themselves] by [using] my name". Yeah but it's part of the job. "I am happy, man-and all good".

"Kathryn was sexually assaulted in June 2009 by an individual named Cristiano Ronaldo", Mayorga's lawyer, Leslie Mark Stovall, said in a video published online by Der Spiegel.

The Italian club has declined to comment on the Der Spiegel report, but Ronaldo's lawyer said he would seek legal redress from the magazine for reporting he described as "blatantly illegal".

Her family, who lives in Las Vegas, attended mediation to provide her with emotional support and advice, but they were excluded from discussions by Ronaldo's team and the mediator, according to the lawsuit.

Part of the deal was a clause that she would not go public with the allegations.

The following article discusses rape and sexual assault.

'X-Men: Dark Phoenix': First Official Poster & Synopsis Have Arrived
It will simply be called " Dark Phoenix ", according to a new poster for the movie and Fox's official synopsis . However, when she is corrupted by the Hellfire Club, she becomes the Dark Phoenix and turns against the X-Men.

The documents claim that Ronaldo confirmed the pair had sex, but that it was consensual.

In the document, X says that she was lying on her side.

In an interview with Der Spiegel, Mayorga claimed Ronaldo said he was "99 per cent good a good guy" let down by the "1 per cent".

Der Spiegel says it has documents in which Ronaldo is referred to as X and Mayorga as C. In one of the documents, X states: "She said no and stop several times".

Ronaldo has since denied the allegations against him through a representative, calling them "untruthful and false". Their denials form the defamation claims in Mayorga's lawsuit.

Even Mayorga had noticed that she was being followed.

She described to the German magazine why she accepted the hush money in the first place - paid from a company account in the British Virgin Islands. But she wasn't going to be silent any more.
