Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo has denied claims he raped a model nine years ago, saying that his accusers are ”seeking to promote themselves.”
The model, Kathryn Mayorga, claimed that the Portugal captain raped her in a bathroom at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, United States.
Reacting to the allegation via his Twitter handle on Wednesday, the former Real Madrid superstar said he never raped her.
”I firmly deny the accusations being issued against me. 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 tweeted.
My clear conscious will thereby allow me to await with tranquillity the results of any and all investigations.
