Warrant for Cristiano Ronaldo's DNA issued in connection with rape investigation

Real Madrid’s top three priorities to get back on track

Just months after American school teacher Kathryn Mayorga filed a civil suit against the Juventus superstar, accusing him of raping her in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2009, English model and TV personality Jasmine Lennard has come forward with allegations of her own. The warrant would instruct Italian authorities to deliver the sample to Las Vegas and allow local police to determine whether the DNA in question is Ronaldo's.

Mayorga has alleged that Ronaldo raped her at a Las Vegas hotel in June 2009 after they met at a nightclub, where she was working at as a model to entice guests into the establishment.

Ronaldo, who joined Juventus in July after nine years with Real Madrid, has maintained his innocence in all public comments and statements since the accusation was published, initially dismissing the story as "fake news" in a casual Instagram Live video before issuing more formal statements through his representation.

However, her lawyers now want to annul that agreement, which she says she only signed because she was "terrified of retaliation" and of "being publicly humiliated by being identified as a victim of sexual assault".

Lennard went on in a long series of un-threaded tweets, responding to fans and declaring her stance alongside Mayorga.

She alleges the striker then paid her $375,000 to keep it a secret.

Another woman has spoken out about alleged disgusting abuse on the part of Cristiano Ronaldo. Recalling the interaction, Mayorga told Der Spiegel that Ronaldo had made a remark suggesting he was a good person minus that "1 percent".

In a statement, Ronaldo's legal team said Ronaldo had "no specific recollection" of meeting Lennard at any point. The goal is to test it to see if it matches DNA found on the dress worn by Kathryn Mayorga on the night she claims Ronaldo raped her.

Under Nevada law, there is no statute of limitations on investigations or potential charges stemming from such reports.
