A sexual assault case involving Cristiano Ronaldo filed by a woman, Kathryn Mayorga, has been reopened by Las Vegas Police.
Mayorga, 34, claims she was raped by the Juventus forward in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2008.
The allegation was first reported by a German magazine, Der Spiegel, which claimed that the incident was filed with the City’s Police.
Las Vegas Police confirmed that such case was reported and they had investigated in June 2009 but had not suspects.
“At the time the report was taken, the victim did not provide detectives with the location of the incident or suspect description,” a statement said.
The Police department also confirmed the case been reopened last month, September.
“As of September 2018, the case has been reopened and our detectives are following up on information being provided,” it added.
They are said to have reached an out-of-court settlement in 2010 where the former Real Madrid star paid $375,000 (NGN 136m) to the woman for her never to go public with it.
Ronaldo and his representatives have refuted the allegation calling it fake news and say they will take legal action against the magazine while her lawyers are seeking to declare the non-disclosure agreement void.
