Cristiano Ronaldo’s accusor Kathryn Mayorga wants the case reopened in the US

Lawyers attempting to reopen a rape lawsuit seeking millions of dollars in damages from Cristiano Ronaldo will present arguments in a US court on behalf of accusor Kathryn Mayorga.

The original case, initiated in 2018 and dismissed in June 2022, is being brought back to court by plaintiff Kathryn Mayorga. She claims that a confidentiality agreement established between herself and Ronaldo in 2010 was violated by the football star and his associates in 2017.

Kathryn Mayorga is now pursuing $25 million (£20.6m) in damages. Mayorga has given consent to be publicly named, and she alleges that Ronaldo raped her in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2009. Ronaldo, represented by his legal team, has asserted that the encounter was consensual.

In 2010, the two parties entered into a confidentiality agreement, in which Mayorga’s lawyer indicated that his client received a payment of $375,000.

Las Vegas prosecutors reopened their investigation into the case following Mayorga’s filing in 2018. However, a year later, they determined that there wasn’t enough evidence to substantiate the allegations.

A panel of three judges will hear oral arguments from both sides during a special session in Las Vegas on Wednesday. However, an immediate decision on whether to reopen the civil case is not expected.
