Juventus striker, Cristiano Ronaldo has again denied claims he raped a model nine years ago inside a Las Vegas hotel room.
This comes just two days after Las Vegas police reopened an investigation into Kathryn Mayorga’s claims that Ronaldo raped her in 2009.
Mayorga, a 34-year-old teacher who was an aspiring model at the time of the alleged assault, alleged that the football star raped her in a bathroom at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas in the early hours of June 13, 2009.
Taking to his Twitter page this afternoon, the former Real Madrid star wrote:
‘I firmly deny the accusations being issued against me. 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 conscious will thereby allow me to await with tranquillity the results of any and all investigations.’
