  • Real Madrid reacts after being dragged into Ronaldo's rape allegation lailasnews 3

Lawyers representing the Juventus player said on Wednesday that documents had been "completely fabricated".

The weekly magazine is standing by its claims, saying it has "hundreds of documents" that substantiate its report and there is no reason to believe they are not authentic. Ronaldo's lawyer in Berlin, Christian Schertz, has refused comment about the rape allegation.

He said the hacker then "tried to sell such information" after "significant parts" had been "altered and/or completely forged".

"The documents that allegedly contain statements by Mr Ronaldo and were reproduced in the media are pure inventions".

"Any document or information under the control or in the possession of Cristiano Ronaldo should be immediately turned over to the appropriate law enforcement agencies and the offices of Stovall & Associates to expedite the investigation and resolution of the alleged discrepancies in the "Football Leaks" documents".

Christiansen added: 'In 2015, dozens of entities, including law firms. were hacked and their electronic data was stolen and captured by a cybercriminal.

Las Vegas police have reopened the investigation and want to question the Portuguese in the U.S., although Ronaldo recently put out a statement insisting he is calm as he feels he did not commit any crime.

A lawsuit filed on 27 September in Nevada state court seeks to void the NDA that Ms Mayorga's lawyers say she signed while accepting $375,000 (£284,000) to keep quiet.

The statement released by Mr Christiansen doesn't deny Ronaldo and the woman reached a non-disclosure agreement in 2010.

Cristiano Ronaldo on rape allegation: Vegas incident was 'completely consensual'

Der Spiegel said: "When we published an article about the settlement agreement between Ms Mayorga and Mr Ronaldo in 2017, his advisors called it "nothing but a piece of journalistic fiction".

Ronaldo has been accused of raping Mayorga, now 34, in a Vegas penthouse suite after a night spent partying in 2009, when the player had just moved from Manchester United to Real Madrid.

"To absolve any doubt, Mr. Ronaldo has always maintained, as he does today, that what occurred in 2009 in Las Vegas was consensual in nature", the statement added.

'To be clear, Cristiano Ronaldo vehemently denies all the accusations in this civil action, in consistency with what he has done in the last nine years.

"The statement that was issued by (Ronaldo's lawyer) Peter Christiansen on behalf of Cristiano Ronaldo presents the usual path that Mr Ronaldo and his lawyers have taken in the past when unsuccessfully fighting our investigative work".

Football star Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the highest paid athletes in sports, with a lifetime contract reportedly worth $1 billion, with Nike alone.

Ronaldo, 33, of Portugal, plays for the Italian club Juventus and his home country's national team.

"Unfortunately, he now finds himself embroiled in the type of litigation that is all too commonplace in America".
