Ronaldo lawyers to sue Der Spiegel over 'illegal' report

(Reuters) - Lawyers for Cristiano Ronaldo said on Friday they would sue German magazine Der Spiegel after it published "blatantly illegal" accusations by an American woman who alleges she was raped by the Portuguese soccer star in 2009.

Ronaldo's lawyer Christian Schertz said in a statement the report was "an inadmissible reporting of suspicions in the area of privacy", and that he would seek legal redress for his client from the magazine.

The statement was sent to Reuters by Ronaldo's agent Gestifute in response to a request for comment on the Der Spiegel story. Gestifute did not answer any specific questions about the content of the Der Spiegel report, which Reuters was unable to independently verify.

Ronaldo is one of the biggest names in world sport. He has been named player of the year five times and transferred to Juventus from Real Madrid this summer for 100 million euros. The Italian club declined to comment on the Der Spiegel report.

The magazine said the rape allegedly took place in June 2009 in a hotel room in Las Vegas, according to Leslie Mark Stovall, lawyer for the alleged victim, Kathryn Mayorga.

Ronaldo and Mayorga then reached an out-of-court agreement, according to Stovall as reported in the magazine.

It said, according to Stovall, that she had pledged never to speak of the accusation again and Ronaldo paid her $375,000.

"Kathryn was sexually assaulted in June 2009 by an individual named Cristiano Ronaldo," Mayorga's lawyer, Leslie Mark Stovall, said in a video published online by Der Spiegel.

Reuters was not able to independently verify Mayorga's allegations.

Stovall did not immediately respond to email requests from Reuters for comment on the report and Mayorga was not available for comment in telephone calls to her home.

Her lawyer told Der Spiegel, however, that he had filed a civil complaint seeking to declare the non-disclosure agreement void.

"The purpose of this lawsuit is to hold Cristiano Ronaldo responsible within a civil court of law for the injuries he has caused Kathryn Mayorga and the consequences of those injuries," Stovall told Der Spiegel.

Schertz said he would seek compensation from Der Spiegel for "moral damages in an amount corresponding to the gravity of the infringement, which is probably one of the most serious violations of personal rights in recent years."

The magazine's Deputy Editor-in-Chief, Alfred Weinzierl, told Reuters that Der Spiegel had repeatedly written to Ronaldo's management and lawyers about the allegations before publishing its report.

"We sent written questions, to which there were no answers. Nobody sued us in connection with earlier Ronaldo reports," he said in an email.


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.

"I've had like these serious breakdowns," she told the magazine. "And again, blaming of the rape. And I blame him, and I blame myself for signing that thing."

If innocent, sue em for all they have got....

If you are however guilty, don't go back and beg ooo

People who think he's guilty for settling out of court - these stars feel it's better to pay 1 week wage rather than risk bad publicity even from a false accusation.

He is handsome, young, world famous.... if he kisses a woman, he forgets less than 10 seconds after while the woman cherishes the thought for life....

If he's rough in bed, can be termed as rape. At the same time too, some stars don't believe they can be turned down. They are used to women throwing themselves shamelessly

Not really a yardstick to judge, people can be crazy atimes. Forgotten Michael Jackson’s scandal too? Were ladies not even fainting anytime he went on stage, yet it was not enough he still went ahead to molest children. They are not predictable that’s all.

One of the most decorated footballer of all time is about to go down hard. Promiscuity and adultery are bad but rape is on a different league of its own. Let's hope a fair investigation is carried out to either exonerate the accused or corroborate the accuser's claim.

Re: Rape Scandal: Cristiano Ronaldo To Sue Der Spiegel, German Magazine by fiercehillz(m): 8:17am On Sep 30, 2018
Once you become a celebrity, make sure you have a handwritten document with you whenever you wanna have anything with anybody. The person must sign and agree that both parties are in agreement, that he/she is above 18, not drunk and willing to engage. Then you have to make a short video of both of you concurring to the act and then back it up on google drive.
