Today, German publication Der Spiegel published images of the top-secret non-disclosure agreement signed by Cristiano Ronaldo and Kathryn Mayorga. Ms. Mayorga, 34, had originally told Der Speigel that Ronaldo has raped her in June 2009. Sky Sports news had confirmed with the Las Vegas police that they had investigated reports of sexual assault following an alleged incident in June 2009.
In the document, Ronaldo is referred to as “topher”. The documents detail answers to a questionnaire created by Ronaldo’s legal team.
When asked: Did Ms. C ever raise her voice, scream, or yell?”,
He replied: “She said no several times.”
The football superstar also agreed to give the woman test results for STDs to dissuade any other possible concerns. In addition, the newspaper also published a police report wherein the caller was crying, but wouldn’t give any information about the perpetrator except that he was an “athlete” and “public figure”.
According to the magazine’s findings, the two reached a settlement agreement which involved Mayorga keeping silent about the alleged rape in exchange for USD$375,000.
However, in recent months Ms. Mayorga had told the editors at Der Speigel that she no longer felt obligated to uphold her non-disclosure agreement. Since she still felt psychological pain as a consequence of the alleged rape nine years ago. Her lawyer, Leslie Mark Stovall, filed a civil complaint to render the non-disclosure agreement entirely void.
“The purpose of this lawsuit is to hold Cristiano Ronaldo responsible within a civil court of law for the injuries he has caused Kathryn Mayorga and the consequences of those injuries”.
Not surprisingly, Ronaldo and his legal team have been adamant to dismiss the allegations and accuse the Der Speigel of false reporting and slander. According to Ronaldo, the allegations are simply another example of ‘fake news’. His legal team have described the reporting by the German publication as “blatantly illegal” and is critical of it for violating “the personal rights of our client Cristiano Ronaldo in an exceptionally serious way”.
Nonetheless, Der Speigel claims:
“There is no doubt about the authenticity of the document, since not even Ronaldo’s legal representatives raised any”
Juventus, the club that recently signed Ronaldo for over USD$100 million, is yet to common on this topic.
