Cristiano Ronaldo to submit DNA in Vegas rape case
Juventus striker, Cristiano Ronaldo is set to submit DNA as part of the police investigation into his Las Vegas rape case.
As previously reported, the Las Vegas Metro PD has reopened the investigation into claims made by Kathryn Mayorga that CR7 sexually assaulted her in his hotel room back in 2009.
Kathryn Mayorga went to cops back in ’09 but didn’t identify Ronaldo by name out of fear of retaliation.
Just a few months ago, Mayorga filed a new lawsuit against the soccer star saying Ronaldo and his team coerced her into signing a settlement at the time and paid her $375k in exchange for her silence.
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.
Ronaldo continues to deny all wrongdoing and plans on cooperating with investigators to prove his innocence.
