Cristiano Ronaldo Accused of Rape by American Woman, Lawyers Defend Juventus Star Footballer.

He issued a statement today firmly denying the attack.

"I firmly deny the accusations being issued against me", tweeted the 33-year-old, who plays for Juventus in Italy's Serie A. "Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in".

Now, Las Vegas cops have reopened their investigation into the incident.

"These injuries rendered Kathryn incompetent to participate in the negotiations and settlement and nondisclosure in 2010", Drohobyczer said.

Mayorga sued Ronaldo last week in civil court, seeking to void a confidentiality and payoff settlement agreement and claim additional damages.

The unidentified "fixers" were named as co-defendants.

"Out of concern for Kathryn's psychological condition, Stovall & Associates referred her to a board-certified psychiatrist".

Mayorga is out of the USA and not speaking to media about the lawsuit she filed last week seeking monetary damages from Ronaldo, lawyer Larissa Drohobyczer told The Associated Press.

The Nobel in physics will be announced Tuesday, followed by the award for chemistry on Wednesday and the peace prize on Friday. Allison and Honjo have previously shared the 2014 Tang Prize, touted as Asia's version of the Nobels, for their research.


Mayorga says she refused and wanted to leave - but Ronaldo "pulled [her] into a bedroom and onto a bed and attempted to engage in sexual intercourse".

Ronaldo had denied the allegation in 2017, when it was first reported by a German news outlet, Der Spiegel.

Las Vegas police told PEOPLE's Maura Hohman on Monday they've reopened the investigation into Ronaldo's alleged 2009 assault against Mayorga. She characterized Mayorga in 2009 as emotionally damaged, fearful, depressed and humiliated after the alleged attack and pressure from Ronaldo's representatives.

Ronaldo was serving a one-match suspension after being sent off in Juve's match with Valencia a fortnight ago and watched on from the stands at the Juventus Stadium alongside girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez and seven-year-old son Cristiano Jr.

What did Ms Mayorga's lawyer say?

Ronaldo is now in his first season with Juventus after spending almost a decade at Real Madrid.

Ronaldo, who is a Portuguese citizen, went from Manchester United to Real Madrid in 2009 for a then-record sum of €94 million (NZ$166 million).

Drohobyczer declined to immediately make the document public Wednesday.

That night, the lawsuit alleges, Ronaldo asked the woman to perform a sexual act on him in a bathroom as she was changing into attire to wear in a hot tub.
