Vegas police want Ronaldo's DNA for alleged rape in 2009

Vegas police want Ronaldo's DNA for alleged rape in 2009

Las Vegas investigators reportedly issued the warrant to see if the Juventus star's DNA sample matches a sample found on the dress of Kathryn Mayorga.

In her statements against Ronaldo on Twitter, Lennard also declared her intention to help Mayorga and her legal team in their case against the football star.

Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo threatened to "cut up" the body of "Celebrity Big Brother" contestant Jasmine Lennard if the model ever dated anyone else, she said in a series of tweets Tuesday.

Ronaldo has repeatedly denied the rape allegations.

Ronaldo firmly denies the claims and is offering police full cooperation, including providing a DNA sample, United States news outlet TMZ Sports reports, citing sources close to the player.

Mr. Chistiansen reportely declined to comment on the new developments in the probe.

When that lawsuit went public, cops said they would reopen the case now that they had the name of the alleged assailant and, as part of the renewed investigation, they went to Ronaldo within the last week and asked for a DNA sample as part of standard sexual assault investigation protocol.

The German newspaper Der Spiegel reported in October a year ago that Ronaldo allegedly employs a team of fixers, including at least one private detective, to deal with the public relations disaster he faced after he was accused of rape by Kathryn Mayorga.

The alleged rape occurred in June 2009.

It was there that Ronaldo forced himself on Ms. Mayorga while she begged him to stop, she alleges. Mayorga filed a police report at the time, and claims that she later accepted a $375,000 payment in exchange for dropping the charge.

Under Nevada law, there is no statute of limitations on investigations or potential charges stemming from such reports.
