Ronaldo says he has ‘clear conscience’ as Juve star denies rape allegations

Cristiano Ronaldo has denied the rape allegations made against him by Kathryn Mayorga, saying he has a “clear conscience.”

Mayorga says the Juventus footballer, who left Real Madrid during the summer, raped her in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2009 while she repeated screamed no, according to a lawsuit filed Friday.

“I firmly deny the accusations being issued against me,” Ronaldo wrote on Twitter. “Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in.

“Keen as I may be to clear my name, I refuse to feed the media spectacle created by people seeking to promote themselves at my expense.

“My clear conscience will thereby allow me to await with tranquillity the results of any and all investigations.”

On Tuesday, Leslie Stoval, Mayorga’s co-counsel, said the complaint and her “psychological” injuries, as well as the physical evidence, the settlement and Ronaldo’s alleged answers to questions about the assault, are not fake news as Ronaldo claimed on Instagram.

Las Vegas police have re-opened the rape complaint made by Mayorga against Ronaldo. Her lawyer is holding a media conference later on Wednesday in Las Vegas.
