Miss Mayorga, 34, now an elementary school teacher, told Der Spiegel that she met Ronaldo on June 13 2009 at the Rain nightclub in Las Vegas when she was a 25-year-old aspiring model.

"They want to be famous to say my name, but it is part of the job".

Ronaldo's legal team swiftly responded to this new article, revealing that they plan on suing the German publication for the "blatantly ilegal" article, adding that it is "probably one of the most serious violations of personal rights in recent years".

A Las Vegas woman recounted the events that took place the night Ronaldo allegedly sexually assaulted her when he was on holiday with his brother in-law and cousin.

She said she filed a rape report with Las Vegas police the next day, according to the paper.

According to Der Spiegel, who claim to have seen a copy of the documents, Ronaldo's account of the evening was conflicting. Fake, fake news. They want to promote my name.

Mayorga also claims she went to the police and had photographs taken of her injuries at a hospital, but later agreed to an out-of-court settlement because she felt "terrified of retaliation" and was anxious about "being publicly humiliated." . Ronaldo allegedly offered her some athletic shorts and a T-shirt and directed her towards his bathroom where she could change.

The court documents claim the footballer confirmed the pair had sex but said it was consensual.

Christian Schertz said the report was "an inadmissible reporting of suspicions in the area of privacy".

Mayorga is quoted by Der Spiegal as saying: "By this time, he's (...) on his knees".

Her lawyers are now seeking to find the declared non-disclosure agreement void.

The 31-page lawsuit accuses Ronaldo and the other named defendants of participating in a "conspiracy to obstruct the criminal investigation and prosecution of Cristiano Ronaldo" for the alleged sexual assault, the Las Vegas Review Journal reported Saturday.
