The victim has now spoken up.
Back in 2009, the summer that Ronaldo joined Real Madrid from Manchester United, he was on holiday in the U.S. when the alleged attack took place. However, she did not mention the soccer player by name at the time.

A lot has changed since 2009.
Mayorga described mediation "as re-experiencing the sexual assault", an ordeal marked by "extreme fearfulness, complete helplessness and eventually a sense of passivity where she would do anything just to be able to leave/escape/avoid revisiting the sexual assault by continuing the mediation", the lawsuit says. Ronaldo invited her, her friend and others to his penthouse suite.
However, the lawsuit then alleges that Ronaldo's team hired "fixers" to shadow her, stalk her, and dig up dirt in a bid to discredit any potential criminal case. She alleges that when she kissed him, he became aggressive and anally raped her in his hotel bedroom. But after the kiss, he tried to grab her even as she kept saying no.
She claims in the court papers that Ronaldo apologized to her after he raped her, according to the Sun. In 2010, she negotiated a $400,000 out-of-court settlement. She says she struggled to maintain relationships or hold down a job. It was rude. We didn't change position. "She had over three (3) glasses of wine".
Mayorga did not participate in the article and she was not named in it.

They finally settled on $375,000, the amount Ronaldo earned per week in his new contract at Real Madrid. The Italian club declined to comment on the Der Spiegel report. "That's when he jumped on me". What would God think of that! "I love you @cristiano." .
"I don't care about your money that was the last thing I wanted!" Which in non-legalese means that one can hope he will suffer the consequences of his actions.
"(The report) violates the personal rights of our client Cristiano Ronaldo in an exceptionally serious way", Shertz's statement said. Rape allegations against Cristiano were first reported by a German magazine in 2017, which his rep denied at the time.
"We sent written questions, to which there were no answers". "And again, blaming of the rape". According to court papers, the footballer confirmed that they did have sexual intercourse, but said that it was a consensual act.
He added: "They want to promote [themselves by using] my name".
