#MeToo: After rape allegations, three more claims surface against Ronaldo

In a shocking development, three more women have reportedly come forward with claims that they were sexually assaulted by Juventus ace Cristiano Ronaldo.

The development comes after a woman from Las Vegas, Kathryn Mayorga, broke her silence and alleged that Ronaldo had raped her in 2009 and paid her hush money.

The new claims are being investigated.

Here are the details.

Speaking to British publication, The Sun, lawyers for Kathryn Mayorga said that they are probing the new allegations against the ace footballer.

One of the women claim to have been raped by Ronaldo after a party, while another alleged that she had been 'hurt' by the superstar.

Meanwhile, the third has alleged that she entered into a non-disclosure agreement with Ronaldo, like Mayorga did.

Unclear details

Several things remain unclear at this point

Several things, however, are unclear at this point.

Firstly, it's not clear whether the second and the third woman have alleged sexual misconduct on part of Ronaldo.

Secondly, it's unclear whether Italian belly dancer Karima El Mahroug, who had earlier alleged that Ronaldo had paid her €4,000 to sleep with her at a Milan hotel in 2010, is one of the accusers.

Things don't look good for Cristiano Ronaldo

Despite the lack of clarity, the new set of allegations don't look good for the Juventus superstar who has, so far, vehemently denied allegations of rape made by Kathryn Mayorga.

Mayorga had earlier alleged that she had been anally raped by Ronaldo in Las Vegas in 2009, following the footballer's big-money move to Real Madrid.

She has gone into hiding since the story broke.

A crisis?

Not everyone seems convinced about Ronaldo's innocence

Yet, despite the support by Juventus for Ronaldo, not everyone seems convinced about Ronaldo's innocence.

Although EA Sports released FIFA 19 with Ronaldo on its cover, the gaming company has since removed all mentions of CR7 social media accounts. It has added that it is 'closely monitoring' the situation.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo's sportswear sponsor Nike is also concerned about its name getting tarnished.
