Cristiano Ronaldo signed for Juventus in July

Cristiano Ronaldo's lawyers are threatening to sue German magazine Der Spiegel after it published detailed and graphic allegations that the Portuguese star raped an American woman in Las Vegas in 2009.

Mayorga has spoken publicly for the first time about the alleged encounter with Juventus forward Ronaldo, who was under contract at Real Madrid at the time, saying she was raped by the five-time Ballon d'Or victor after a night spent partying.

However, the player's lawyers will no seek legal action against German publication Der Spiegel over the allegations, seaking compensation for moral damages. The validity of that out of court settlement is now being questioned in state of Nevada in the United States.

In the letter that she wrote to Ronaldo, K. describes what happened later that night of partying. Afterward, they went to his penthouse.

Kathryn has given further details about the incident and has claimed that she was screaming "no" when she was being dragged and raped in the bathroom and the bedroom. But K. writes that this wasn't enough for Ronaldo.

"At that moment, one of his friends came in and asked: 'What are you doing?' I took the opportunity to quickly put my dress back on and said: 'We're coming out.' And he said yes, we're coming". Her lawyer said that he had filed a civil complaint seeking to declare the non-disclosure agreement void. "When I wouldn't touch it, he begged me to suck it. I was never so scared in my life", K. writes in the letter.

Mayorga insists that she had signed the settlement out of fear but her new lawyer has questioned the legality of the out-of-court settlement. "It violates the personal rights of our client Cristiano Ronaldo in an exceptionally serious way", Professor Dr Christian Schertz said in a statement. This is an inadmissible reporting of suspicions in the area of privacy.
