According to TMZ Sports, Ronaldo plans to submit his DNA and cooperate with the police, as he and his lawyers claim that the encounter was consensual. Mayorga signed a non-disclosure agreement with the former Real Madrid star in 2009, but is now suing Ronaldo, claiming that Ronaldo and his team of “fixers” coerced her into the agreement.
Ronaldo currently plays for the soccer club Juventus in Italy.
