Ronaldo Admitted That He Had Raped Kathryn Mayorga in Las Vegas Hotel
Ronaldo was accused of raping a Kathryn Mayorga in a Las Vegas hotel. He has admitted his crime and is sorry for his actions.
Kathryn Mayorga accused Cristiano Ronaldo that he has raped her in a Las Vegas hotel. As per her reports, the incident happened in 2009. She claimed that she had been repeatedly saying no but he continued in his act. The lawsuit was filed in Clark County in Nevada this Friday. The Portuguese player who has been playing for Juventus has finally accepted this accusation and said he was sorry for the act. He said that usually he is a gentleman and it was an exceptional case.
Kathryn said that the 33-year-old player has taken advantage of her vulnerable emotional situation. He even forced her to come to a settlement which was a nondisclosure agreement. She also said that the alleged person gave her $375,000 to keep silence on this matter.
When the case came out in 2017 in a German publication called Der Spiegel, representatives of Ronaldo denied all claims. After the outlet broke the news of the claim Friday in a meeting with Mayorga, Ronaldo's attorney called the detailing obtrusively unlawful. He said that it abuses the individual privileges of his client Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo came live on an Instagram post, on Friday telling, "What they said today, fake -- fake news. They want to promote themselves by adding my name. It's normal. They want to be famous -- to say my name. Yeah but it's part of the job. I'm (a) happy man and all, all good."
All about the attack
As per the sources, on 13th June 2009, both of them met at Palms Hotel and Casino. The football player initially invited her along with some of her friends and some other people to the penthouse suite. As per the case filed by Kathryn, Ronaldo asked her to join in the Jacuzzi. As she did not have a proper dress, Ronaldo gave her a t-shirt and shorts.
As she was changing the dress in the bathroom, Ronaldo came inside the bathroom and approached towards her. He asked Kathryn to have oral sex with him. As per the records of Kathryn, she refused to do so immediately. When she did not agree, Ronaldo forcefully pulled her inside the bedroom and raped her. During the instance, she screamed “No” repeatedly but he did not pay any heed to her refusal.
As per sources, the very next day she went to the hospital for the sexual assault examination. Soon after she also reported the same to the police. When Ronaldo was in front of her for identification she refused to identify him. As per her statements, she was afraid of public humiliation at that point of time. A few weeks later, finally she came out of the trauma and said to the police, detective and the nurse who examined her about the name of the person. All of them said that saying the name to all would make her subject to retaliation and she will be portrayed as a mere blackmailer targeting a celeb.
The lawsuit said, "The psychological trauma of the sexual assault, the fear of public humiliation and retaliation and the reiteration of those fears by law enforcement and medical providers left the accuser terrified and she was unable to act or advocate for herself."
As per reports during this time, Cristiano Ronaldo had already prepared himself with a team of "fixers" or "personal reputation protection specialists" who would defend the case for him. In that lawsuit there were allegations of Mayorga, her friends and family being monitored. The officials were reportedly developing and implementing strategies that would prevent or delay the public disclosure of the said allegations and therefore prevent the criminal prosecution of Ronaldo. The team of Ronaldo reportedly communicated with Mayorga's lawyer during that time, who initially agreed to go into a private mediation with the other party. Sources say after this Mayorga's lawyer did not go to the Las Vegas police for a follow-up.
How the case was under covers till now
In mediation discussions, Ronaldo's representatives led her to believe they have been trying to compensate her for her injuries, and that agreeing to the agreement prohibited her from taking the case further with the police. In fact, the lawsuit claims, Ronaldo’s group made an attempt to hinder a criminal research and tarnish Mayorga's credibility. While doing so they were diminishing her possibilities of pursuing a claim for civil damages. The allegations form the basis of Mayorga's claims of coercion and fraud, racketeering and civil conspiracy, and abuse.
As per the lawsuit, Kathryn’s relatives who live in Las Vegas, attended mediation to provide her with emotional assist and recommendation. But they have been excluded from discussions by Ronaldo's crew and the mediator.
Keeping in mind the fact that Kathryn is a vulnerable person, his crew bolstered the danger of public humiliation on her if she or everyone else publicly disclosed her allegations. They threatened to fabricate her words that would say that she was having consented intercourse after which she was making a fake claim so she may want to extort Ronaldo for cash.
Mayorga defined mediation as re-experiencing the sexual assault, an ordeal marked via extreme fearfulness, entire helplessness and eventually a sense of passivity.
The additional claims against him and his representatives include intentional infliction of emotional distress, coercion and fraud, and abuse of the susceptible person.
All through these years, Mayorga maintained her silence as her emotional health suffered beneath the burden of stress disorder, as reported in the lawsuit. She says that she has been struggling throughout to preserve relationships after that incident and her mental situation made it difficult to maintain a job consistently.
Recently, a sports activities website leaked copies of documents and communications between Ronaldo and his crew relevant to the mediation to Der Spiegel. This published a detailed account of the allegations in April 2017.
Cristiano Ronaldo being such a big name getting involved in such frivolous activities is really shocking. Still, there are supporters who are sharing comments in favor of the act. There were comments like "As if Ronaldo even needs to rape a woman." Maybe comments like such were the reason why Kathryn couldn’t come up with the incident before.
