Las Vegas police have asked Cristiano Ronaldo to submit a DNA sample, as part of an ongoing investigation into rape allegations stemming from a night in 2009, according to TMZ.
Kathryn Mayorga, a then-25-year-old woman, alleges that she was raped by Ronaldo in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2009. Mayorga has stated that she did not initially participate in a full police investigation at the time of the alleged assault out of fear for her personal safety and the well-being of her family.
Las Vegas police re-opened their investigation into Mayorga’s claims in September 2018.
According to published documents, Mayorga reached a $375,000 out-of-court settlement with Ronaldo in 2010, in exchange for agreeing to never go public with her allegations. Her attorneys would later file suits, claiming that the non-disclosure agreement was void, and claimed Mayorga suffered “post-traumatic stress disorder and major depression” as a result of the alleged incident.
