Cristiano Ronaldo’s rape lawsuit dropped by Las Vegas accuser. Last year, a rape lawsuit against Cristiano Ronaldo made headlines and even dropped his club, Juventus shares down to 15%. New reports claim that a notice of voluntary dismissal was filed last month in Nevada state court in Las Vegas.
The filing didn’t state whether the accuser had reached a settlement with the Portuguese soccer player. The New York Times reported in March that Juventus, the Italian league champions, wouldn’t participate in the International Champions Cup in the U.S. this summer to avoid the risk that Cristiano Ronaldo would be detained by authorities as part of a rape investigation.
Ronaldo publicly denied the allegations and never filed a response to the lawsuit.
Katheryn Mayorga filed a complaint Sept. 27, alleging that she was sexually assaulted by Ronaldo in 2009 in his penthouse suite at a Las Vegas hotel. Mayorga said in the complaint that while she agreed to a settlement with Ronaldo after the alleged assault, she was experiencing severe emotional trauma at the time and wasn’t competent to participate in the mediation.
Footballer Neymar Jnr has also been accused of rape by a lady. He debunked the accusation with a video and series of text/chats with the accused shared to prove his innocence. Najila Trindade, the lady who accused PSG player Neymar of rape has threatened to release video of the incidence which the player has denied.
