In 2009 Cristiano Ronaldo had a brilliant career at Real Madrid, but a rape complaint overshadowed everything he was doing professionally. A woman named Kathryn Mayorga had appeared before the United States justice to ensure that the striker had abused her in Las Vegas, and the scandal was worldwide.
Mayorga’s face gained international resonance, although the truth is that she already had a career as a model. She was born on May 30, 1984 in the state of Nevada, in the home of a couple made up of a housewife and a firefighter. It was precisely in a nightclub in that place where she met the footballer, and where the abuse occurred, for which the current Al-Nassr star apologized.
After the controversial night, the woman approached the Eighth District Court in Clark County, Nevada, on September 27, 2009, to file a formal complaint. However, in 2022 it was learned that the judge conducting the case dismissed it, which caused the plaintiff to lose the opportunity to continue with legal actions.
The most recent news on this issue is that both Mayorga and his lawyers asked the court to annul the dismissal, in order to precisely reopen the possibility of the European being tried, something that is very difficult to happen. Although the dismissal does not mean that Ronaldo has been declared innocent, it represents an end to the process, due to lack of evidence, technical errors or other causes.
Currently, the American no longer works as a model, but rather studied a degree in journalism and also prepared to become a teacher, which is why it is believed that she performs both functions. Apparently, she does not have social networks and nor does she give interviews to the media.
