Police issue warrant for Cristiano Ronaldo’s DNA in rape case

English model Jasmine Lennard vows to expose Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo Woman claims Ronaldo threatened to have her “cut up” and her body “thrown in a river”

Las Vegas police recently requested a DNA sample from Cristiano Ronaldo as part of an ongoing investigation into an alleged 2009 rape, reports the Wall Street Journal's Zusha Elinson, citing a law-enforcement official with knowledge of the situation.

"Mr. Ronaldo has always maintained, as he does today, that what occurred in 2009 in Las Vegas was consensual in nature", Ronaldo's lawyer Peter Christiansen wrote in a statement in October.

The 35-year-old American claims Ronaldo anally raped her while the two were at a Las Vegas hotel room almost a decade ago. Recalling the interaction, Mayorga told Der Spiegel that Ronaldo had made a remark suggesting he was a good person minus that "1 percent".

"On that note and after much thought I am reaching out to Kathryn Mayorga and her legal team to offer my assistance in her rape allegation against @Cristiano please contact me", she continued. The warrant was reportedly sent to Italy where Ronaldo now plays for Juventus. The goal is to test it to see if it matches DNA found on the dress worn by Kathryn Mayorga on the night she claims Ronaldo raped her.

When that lawsuit went public, cops said they would reopen the case now that they had the name of the alleged assailant and, as part of the renewed investigation, they went to Ronaldo within the last week and asked for a DNA sample as part of standard sexual assault investigation protocol. She claims that they have had a relationship for a full decade, and she suffered emotional trauma and even threats against her life.

Mayorga has previously indicated that she did not continue pressing charges out of fear of retribution from Ronaldo's camp, instead deciding to take a $375,000 settlement that came with a non-disclosure agreement that prevented her from further speaking on the matter. The Journal reported that Mayorga's DNA is on the dress, and so is the DNA of an unknown party.
