Charges will reportedly not be brought in the Las Vegas rape case of international soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo had been accused by Kathryn Mayorga of raping her in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2009. However, prosecutors say that they were unable to produce evidence as “the allegations of sexual assault against Cristiano Ronaldo cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.”
Mayorga had sued Ronaldo, claiming she later accepted a $375,000 payment in exchange for her silence, but recently she announced that she wanted that agreement voided and went to Las Vegas police to pursue a criminal case against Ronaldo. Ronaldo had firmly denied the allegations, adding, “Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in.”
