Cristiano Ronaldo’s lawyer: The documents about rape were completely fabricated

Published

Peter S. Christiansen, the American lawyer representing Cristiano Ronaldo in his rape case against a model, made a bold statement on Wednesday after claiming that the documents made by the accuser have been altered.

The Juventus forward has wholeheartedly denied assaulting Kathryn Mayorga at a Las Vegas hotel in 2009.

“The documents allegedly containing statements made by Mr. Ronaldo, which were reproduced in the press, were completely fabricated,” the lawyer said in a statement released by GestiFute, the agency representing the footballer.

Christiansen claimed that the documents had been stolen by a hacker and that alterations had been made.

“[The media] irresponsibely posted some of the stolen documents,” stated the lawyer.

“Significant parts [of the documents] were altered and/or completely fabricated.”

Added to this, he makes it clear that Ronaldo hasnt denied the actions but that the media have made the process sound different to what it was.

Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t deny that he spent the night with the accuser, but the reasons that led him to do so are at least distorted,” he continued.

“That agreement doesn’t in any way represent a confession of guilt [in the consensual relationship].”

The lawyer further claims that Ronaldo followed advice as he signed a document which ended the claims by the model, only for it to be not be adhered to.

“[Ronaldo] merely followed advice in looking to end the outrageous accusations against him,” said Christiansen.

“So he proceeded to signing the document that now the other side, the model Kathy Mayorga, has broken.”

The final claim by the lawyer just reiterates that Ronaldo has put the case in the hands of his legal team as he looks to find a solution.

Cristiano Ronaldo asked his lawyers in the United States and in Europe to deal with all the legal aspects [of the case] and expressed full confidence that the truth will prevail,” he said.

“[This has been] an intentional defamation campaign [against the player, which has been based on] digital documents, of which these have been stolen and easily manipulated.”
