Cristiano Ronaldo's advisers 'tried to silence rape accuser'

Cristiano Ronaldo moved to Italian powerhouse Juventus in the summer

Soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo told a woman, "Sorry, I'm usually a gentleman" after raping her during a night of partying in Las Vegas in 2009, court papers claim.

In an Instagram video, Ronaldo said it was normal for people seeking popularity by using his name.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Cristiano Ronaldo is set to drag German publication Der Spiegel to court over "blatantly illegal" claims that he had unlawful intercourse with an American woman nine years ago.

Mayorga alleges she reported the incident to Las Vegas police later that day and went to hospital where evidence of the alleged rape was documented and photographed.

Ronaldo, who called the rape allegations against him "fake news" Sunday, allegedly paid the woman more than $350,000 in 2010 to keep the incident quiet, according to UK's Sun newspaper.

According to Der Spiegel, who claim to have seen a copy of the documents, Ronaldo's account of the evening was conflicting.

"No no no. They want to promote [themselves] by [using] 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's lawyer Christian Schertz said in a statement the report was "an inadmissible reporting of suspicions in the area of privacy", and that he would seek legal redress for his client from the magazine. "I am a happy man and all good".

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

Fox News generally does not name sex assault victims, but Mayorga gave her name to Der Spiegel for her interview, and she is named as the plaintiff in the court papers filed in Las Vegas.

Reuters was not able to independently verify Mayorga's allegations.

She has also filed a civil suit to have the nondisclosure agreement thrown out.

Ronaldo plays for Italian powerhouse Juventus and had three assists in a win Saturday.
