A woman has come forward with rape allegations against Cristiano Ronaldo.
Kathryn Mayorga says Ronaldo raped her in a Las Vegas hotel in 2009.
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."
Mayorga claims she received $375,000 in exchange for her silence; her lawsuit seeks to void the settlement and agreement.
Ronaldo's representatives denied the rape allegations when German publication Der Spiegel first reported them in 2017.
Mayorga met Ronaldo at the Palms Hotel and Casino on June 13, 2009, the complaint says. Ronaldo invited her, her friend and others to his penthouse suite.
Mayorga went to the hospital for a sexual assault examination but she refused to identify Ronaldo to police.
