Amid rape allegations against him, Cristiano Ronaldo’s ex-partner, Jasmine Lennard, has now accused the Juventus star in a series of tweets of threatening to kidnap her and causing her physical harm.
In case you didn’t know…
Last year, Ronaldo was accused of rape by a woman named Kathryn Mayorga, who alleges that the former Real Madrid star raped her in a Las Vegas hotel room when he was on holiday in the US with his cousin and brother-in-law in 2009.
Mayorga told German media outlet Der Speigel that the 33-year-old forward also paid her $375,000 in return for her silence and asked her to sign a non-disclosure agreement after the incident.
Las Vegas police have since reopened an investigation into the case, saying in a statement: “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. A medical exam was conducted.
“As of September 2018, the case has been reopened and our detectives are following up on information being provided by the victim.
“This is an on-going investigation and no further details will be released at this time.”
