Kathryn Mayorga: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

American Kathryn Mayorga filed a complaint in a Nevada district court last week that alleges global soccer phenom Cristiano Ronaldo raped her nine years ago and paid her $375,000 to never say a word to anyone.


Now 34, Mayorga, claims Ronaldo forcibly sodomized her in a penthouse suite in the late spring of 2009. Mayorga, a Las Vegas native, was described in court records as being “raised in a middle-class family;” her father a firefighter and her mother a stay-at-home mom. She earned a degree in journalism but was “variously employed as a schoolteacher, model and sales-product representative,” and was previously married but then-separated from her husband and was openly dating and living a ‘typical’ life.

Ronaldo denies the sexual assault; that she was paid off is a matter of record. And as of late Monday afternoon, Las Vegas police released a statement that it had re-opened the investigation.

The details of the assault are graphic and may be disturbing for some readers.

Here’s what you need to know:

1. Mayorga Alleges Ronaldo Unsuccessfully Tried to Rape Her Vaginally & Then Sodomized Her in His Vegas Hotel Room While People Partied in a Hot Tub:


In her complaint filed Sept. 27 in Clark County Nevada Eighth Judicial District Court, Mayorga says in June of 2009 she was invited by a friend to go to the Vegas nightclub Rain where she met Ronaldo in the club’s VIP section. Ronaldo invited a group of people to his hotel suite to check out the view of the city.
In the suite was a hot tub. Mayorga was invited in but said she did not have a swimsuit. Ronaldo offered her something to wear in the tub. She followed him into a room in the suite for gym shorts and a top, and when she went to the bathroom to change, he came in with an erect penis and told her to perform oral sex, the complaint reads. She said no, and stated she wanted to leave the suite. She alleges that Ronaldo then pulled her into a bedroom and onto a bed and tried to have intercourse with her. She covered herself to prevent it, the complaint states, and then, the complaint reads, Ronaldo turned her over and forcibly sodomized her while she screamed, “No, no no.”

The complaint alleges that Ronaldo said he was sorry after the rape and that he was “usually a gentleman,” The complaint reads that Mayorga, with “anal contusions’ and in severe emotional distress, a post-trauma she suffers from to this day, she drove to her parents home and told a friend what happened.

Later that day, she reported the sexual assault to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police but did not name Ronaldo save to say he was a famous soccer player “out of fear of public humiliation and retaliation.” She was examined at University Medical Center “where physical evidence of the sodomy was documented and photographed.” Mayorga claims she was told by a nurse that if she named Ronaldo, she’d be accused of having consensual sex and then coming forward to make a rape claim for money, the complaint says. A week later, she was interviewed by a detective and named Ronaldo. The complaint states that the police too told her she’d be accused of making up a false claim to extort money. The complaint says that there was no police follow-up.

She hired a lawyer and Ronaldo’s “fixers,” the court document reads, “personal reputation protection specialists” who the complaint lists as defendants “DOES I-XV and ROES (corporations) I-XV” to “investigate, assess, and monitor” Mayorga, her family and friends and keep tabs on who she was talking to. And to make sure to keep tabs on efforts to publicly disclose the alleged sexual assault and what cops were doing. The complaint says Ronaldo’s “team” had a source within the police department who said the incident wold not be further investigated or prosecuted and suggested a settlement be negotiated to keep Mayorga from going public.
A settlement was reached and a non-disclosure agreement was signed. But her lawyers now say it was done at a time when Mayorga was seriously psychologically impacted from the trauma of the alleged rape that she was in no shape to be participating in a negotiation.

Monday afternoon, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department issued a statement from its Office of Public Information:


“The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department responded to a call of a sexual assault on June 13, 2009. At the time the report was taken, the victim did not provide detectives with the location of the incident or suspect description.
