The Portuguese champion is starting to reach the end of the story of the alleged rape, which dates back to 2009, when Kathryn Mayorga filed a lawsuit against CR7.
What happened back then?
The alleged rape occurred in the early morning hours of June 13, 2009. Ronaldo (24), was on vacation in Las Vegas with his brother-in-law and cousin at the time of the alleged attack.
Ms. Mayorga (25), was working at the Palms Casino Resort's Rain nightclub when she met the celebrity in the VIP area.
She told Der Spiegel that the alleged rape left her with clinical depression and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

An agreement made between the plaintiff and CR7
As shown in the Daily Mail, the Portuguese identified the first solution in 2010, when they reached an economic agreement with the woman that included a confidentiality clause. The total cost is 300,000 euros.
And the case is about to be dismissed for the second time because Kathryn Mayorga filed a new lawsuit against the Manchester United player in 2018. The lawyers claimed that the girl was not in a mental state to sign a confidentiality agreement at the time. And they'd arrived to demand €60 million in damages.
CR7 Claimed Innocent
Cristiano Ronaldo has always stated that the facts against him are completely irrelevant. And he's always maintained his innocence. According to the Portuguese, his relationship with Mayorga was mutually beneficial.
Meanwhile, the Manchester United striker's lawyers in response requested that the case be closed. The defense relied on evidence presented by Kathryn Mayorga's lawyers, which included stolen documents involving private conversations between CR7 and his lawyers.
What did the court decide?
Daniel Albregts, a federal judge in Nevada, agreed with Cristiano Ronaldo's request for dismissal. Ronaldo's lawyer in Las Vegas, Peter Christiansen thus was satisfied with the detailed review of the court.
At this time, the decision of Jennifer Dorsey, Nevada District Judge, is awaited. According to the tabloid, Mayorga's legal team still has 14 days to file an objection to the court's decision. The affair will be closed unless they do something about it.
