  • Juventus' Mario Mandzukic left talks with his teammate Cristiano Ronaldo during the Serie A soccer match between Napoli and Juventus in Turin Italy Saturday

A woman has filed a lawsuit accusing Cristiano Ronaldo of rape, according to a new report by German weekly Der Spiegel.

She has reportedly launched a civil suit against Ronaldo in the USA state of Nevada in relation to the rape allegations, according to court documents filed on Friday last week.

Germany's Der Spiegel magazine published a report naming woman who allegedly came to a $375,000 settlement back in 2010 with Ronaldo and agreed to keep silent. Ronaldo allegedly offered her some athletic shorts and a T-shirt and directed her towards his bathroom where she could change.

In her lawsuit, Mayorga states that she did go to local authorities that same day, but did not name her alleged attacker until several weeks later after numerous police interviews.

In an Instagram video posted this weekend, as reported by the BBC, Ronaldo responded, claiming: "They want to promote (themselves) by (using) my name. I am a happy man and all good".

She says she only signed the original document because she was "scared" and "didn't want her name" in the public spotlight.


During an Instagrma live session, Cristiano also addressed the allegations when prompted.

Juventus' Mario Mandzukic, left, talks with his teammate Cristiano Ronaldo during the Serie A soccer match between Napoli and Juventus in Turin, Italy, Saturday. However, on Saturday it provided a document showing the civil suit filed in District Court in Nevada in which the complaint outlines in detail allegations of a sexual assault dated June 13, 2009.

Mayorga told Der Spiegel she no longer felt bound by the non-disclosure agreement as she suffers from the consequences of the night nine years ago. He has been named player of the year five times and recently completed a €100m (£89m) transfer to Juventus from Real Madrid.

Mayorga did not answer telephone calls to her home, Reuters reported.

At the time of the alleged attack, Ronaldo, then 24, was in Las Vegas on holiday with his brother-in-law and cousin. According to court documents Der Spiegel claims to have seen, Ronaldo insists the sex was consensual.

"I've had like these serious breakdowns", she told the magazine.
