Cristiano Ronaldo & # 39; admits that he has paid $ 375,000 raping prosecutor & # 39;
Cristiano Ronaldo has acknowledged that he has paid his rapist prosecutor Kathryn Mayorga $ 375,000 to settle the claim in 2010, it appears.
American model Mayorga claimed that the football player raped her in a hotel room in Las Vegas in 2009, but Ronaldo strongly denies the claims.
The Las Vegas authorities announced last month that there was insufficient evidence to file a complaint against Ronaldo, 34.
Mayorga is continuing a civil case, but Ronaldo's lawyers want them to be thrown away – they say the claim had already been settled in 2010 with a payout and confidentiality agreement.
In newly filed court documents, obtained by TMZ, Ronaldo camp would recognize the $ 375,000 figure.

His lawyers say the payment was not a confession of debt, but merely an attempt to keep the story under the attention of the public.
Mayorga's lawyers now want the agreement to be thrown away.
Ronaldo & # 39; s representatives refused to comment when they were approached by MailOnline today.
The Portuguese player's lawyers acknowledged that he and Mayorga had sex in June 2009, but insisted that it was consensual.
Ronaldo said last October: & I strongly deny the allegations made against me. Rape is a horrible crime that goes against everything I am and in which I believe. & # 39;
His mother Dolores stayed with Ronaldo for the entire month and said in February that she & # 39; had faith in my son when it came to what happened & # 39 ;.
The mother of four also lashed out at Ronaldo's & # 39; s American prosecutor and said she & # 39; did not go to his hotel room to play cards & # 39 ;.

Ronaldo & # 39; s girlfriend, the 25-year-old Spanish model Georgina Rodriguez, also assisted him for the claims.
The civil lawsuit, in which Mayorga claimed more than $ 200,000 in damages, has been relocated to the federal court.
At that time, the police could not have a meaningful investigation & # 39; because Mayorga refused to say who was abusing her or where it took place, said US prosecutors.
As a result, detectives & # 39; were unable to search and seize vital forensic evidence, & video showing Ronaldo and Mayorga together was lost, she added.
Mayorga contacted the police in August last year to reopen the case, after which she named Ronaldo as the alleged attacker.
Her lawyers said she was inspired to speak out and make her claim public through the # MeToo movement against sexual harassment.

In January, a Spanish court handed Ronaldo a suspended two-year jail sentence for committing tax fraud while in Real Madrid.
This was immediately reduced to a fine of 365,000 euros ($ 410,000), in addition to another fine of 3.2 million euros ($ 3.6 million).
Ronaldo left Real Madrid last summer after nine seasons at the club and joined the Italian champion Juventus.
While in Spain he became Real Madrid & # 39; s highest goal scorer ever, settled 451 times after joining Manchester United for a then-world record £ 80 million in 2009.
He helped Real win three consecutive Champions League titles in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
Ronaldo is also the most capped player in Portugal, with 158 games, and record goalscorer, with 88.
