There’s a pretty significant development in the Cristiano Ronaldo alleged rape lawsuit; the soccer star has been served with the court papers and the battle is now underway.
Remember, the accuser Kathryn Mayorga recently withdrew her lawsuit from state court in Nevada to focus on the lawsuit in federal court, mostly because state court laws were making it hard for her legal team to serve Ronaldo with the court docs.
And, just days after making the move, Mayorga’s team had success serving CR7, which means the case can now move forward.
Ronaldo’s legal team has in fact already responded to the lawsuit with court documents of their own in which they ask the judge for permission to file a new 46-page document which will presumably lay out their argument for the court to throw out the case.
As we previously reported, Mayorga claims Ronaldo raped her in a Las Vegas hotel room back in 2009 after partying together at a nightclub. Ronaldo has previously denied the allegations saying back in 2018, “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.”
Do you think he’s guilty?
