Back in September, Der Spiegel, the German newspaper which originally broke the news regarding Cristiano Ronaldo's 2010 out-of-court settlement with an American woman who accused him of rape, detailed the case further in a follow-up article. Kathryn Mayorga, the woman who alleged that Ronaldo raped her in a Las Vegas hotel back in 2009, told the story of what happened, and now there's more documents to back-up her allegations.
In a new article published Friday (Nov. 30), Der Spiegel reports that they've obtained "hundreds of additional documents." Among said confidential documents is what appears to be a confession by Ronaldo that he raped her. Pictures of Ronaldo hanging out with Mayorga have already appeared online, but a portion from the 27-page questionnaire developed by his lawyers seems particularly damning against the international soccer star.
In said questionnaire, Mayorga is referred to as "Ms. C" while Ronaldo is called "X." In the document, Ronaldo is asked to detail what happened on the night in question, with him answering, "I fucked her from the side. She made herself available. She was lying on her side, in bed, and I entered her from behind. It was rough. We didn't change position. 5/7 minutes. She said that she didn't want to, but she made herself available. The whole time it was rough, I turned her onto her side, and it was fast. Maybe she got some bruises when I grabbed her. (...) She didn't want to 'give it to me,' instead she jerked me off. I don't know any more exactly what she said when she was jerking me off. But she kept saying no. 'Don't do it.'"
In a follow-up question, he's asked if she ever raised her voice or screamed, to which he replied, "She said no and stop several times." A revised version of the questionnaire, compiled months later, simply revised his answer to "No." The document, which was reportedly never shown to anyone outside of Ronaldo's legal team, lines up more with Mayorga's version of events.
Ronaldo has denied the allegations.
"No, no, no, no, no. What they said today? Fake, fake news,” he previously said in an Instagram Live stream about the allegations. "They want to promote my name. It’s normal. They want to be famous to say my name, but it is part of the job. I am happy, man—and all good.”
