Non-disclosure agreement was done to stop insulting accusations

As per Mayorga, there was an out-of-court settlement reached, with Ronaldo paying $375,000 to hush her up and sign a non-disclosure agreement.

Christiansen revealed that "Ronaldo doesn't deny that he agreed to conclude an agreement."

He added, "This agreement is by no means a confession of guilt."

It was rather done after advisers guided him to put an end to accusations made against him.

The duo exchanged numbers and later met up at Ronaldo's penthouse, where Ronaldo had other friends over.

Ronaldo then allegedly invited her to change into a swimsuit, took her to his bedroom, and anally raped her.

This isn't the first rape accusation against Cristiano Ronaldo

This isn't the first allegation of rape against Cristiano Ronaldo. In 2005, Ronaldo had been arrested and questioned for allegedly raping a woman in a London hotel. However, owing to insufficient evidence, Scotland Yard dropped the case against Ronaldo, who was 20 at the time.
