The five-time World Player of the Year denies the allegations, insisting the sex was consensual. Mayorga’s lawyer is now questioning the validity of an out-of-court settlement agreed in Nevada, in which Ronaldo reportedly paid $375,000 (€323,000) for her silence.

Der Spiegel writes that the lawyer’s case is based on a document containing Ronaldo’s account of what happened on June 12, 2009. In it, the 33-year-old is quoted as saying “she said ‘no’ and ‘stop’ several times.”
