Judge dismisses rape allegations against Cristiano Ronaldo
LAS VEGAS, N.V. – A United States judge has dismissed the rape allegations made against soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo in 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Ronaldo will not have to face a lawsuit. A Nevada woman has lost her bid to force Ronaldo to pay millions of dollars more than the $375,000 in hush money she received after she claimed he raped her in Las Vegas in 2009.
The Vegas judge kicked the case out of court late on Friday to punish the woman’s attorney for bad-faith conduct and the use of stolen confidential documents.
Ronaldo’s legal team does not dispute that the two had sex, but maintain it was consensual.
