Las Vegas Police issue warrant to obtain Cristiano Ronaldo's DNA

Las Vegas Police issue warrant to obtain Cristiano Ronaldo's DNA

Investigators in Las Vegas found DNA on Mayorga's dress belonging to someone else, the law enforcement official confirmed to the newspaper.

Ronaldo's lawyer, Peter Christiansen, played down the significance of the warrant sent to authorities in Italy, telling AFP in a statement on Thursday (Jan 10) it was standard procedure.

Former model and schoolteacher Kathryn Mayorga reported the alleged attack to police in June 2009 and underwent a medical exam to collect DNA evidence.

CNN could not reach Mayorga's representatives on Thursday.

German weekly news magazine Der Spiegel, which first published the story about the allegation in October, said Ms Mayorga filed a report with Las Vegas police shortly after the alleged incident. Once there, say the court papers, he urged her into his hot tub, but she refused because she did not want to spoil her dress. "We have been communicating pretty much on a daily basis for the a year ago and half and I have messages and recordings that'll be invaluable to Kathryn and her team in showing his true nature and character how unwell he is". Mayorga alleges Ronaldo and his team coerced her into signing despite her emotional state. She reported the assault to police the day after but did not pursue the case, and says she was paid $375,000 to keep quiet about the night.

Inside the document, Cristiano Ronaldo was said to have offered Kathryn Mayorga £287,000 for her not to speak about anything that happened between the two of them in Las Vegas.

Back in 2010, Lennard wrote in a "tell-all" account for the Mirror that she had a fling with Ronaldo during the time when the then-Manchester United star was seeing supermodel Irina Shayk. "Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in".

"Keen as I may be to clear my name, I refuse to feed the media spectacle created by people seeking to promote themselves at my expense", he said.
