Amid multiple rumors linking him with a move away from Juventus, Cristiano Ronaldo can't catch a break and now he is on the news once again for an episode that doesn't seem to have an end. Former model Kathryn Mayorga, who accused the former Manchester United and Real Madrid superstar of sexually assaulting her many years ago, has reportedly brought back the topic demanding compensation for damages.
Mayorga claimed to be a victim of rape by the Portuguese star in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2009. The situation didn't go to court and the forward didn't face rape charges, though, as both sides agreed to an out-of-court settlement by which the accuser received over $300,000.
However, in 2018 Mayorga came back filing a lawsuit stating she was mentally incapacitated then and that she even signed it under coercion. Ronaldo completely denied the accusations, but now he faces a millionaire demand for this situation.
Cristiano rape accuser demands compensation for pain and suffering
According to The Mirror, recently unveiled court documents show that Kathryn Mayorga demands huge sums of money to Cristiano Ronaldo for pain and suffering.
As reported by that newspaper, the former model would claim about $25 million for past pain and suffering, another $25 million for future pain and suffering, and a further $25 million in punitive damages. Juventus star would have to pay almost the equivalent of a two-year salary.
This scandal seemed to be settled in 2010 with the out-of-court agreement, but some years later the issue was all over the media again, threatening to tear the superstar's world apart. Cristiano strongly denied the accusation, though. The soccer figure stated rape is an "abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in."
The famous goalscorer got used to being in the front news for soccer-related topics, but this polemic situation saw him making the headlines for much controversial reasons. Still, he never faced charges so far, but the scandal keeps looming around and now he would be facing a millionaire demand.
