Vegas Authorities Issue Warrant For Cristiano Ronaldo's DNA

A warrant has been issued in Las Vegas to obtain a DNA sample from soccer megastar Cristiano Ronaldo to determine whether it matches genetic material found on a dress of a woman who accused him of raping her in 2009.

Peter S Christiansen downplayed the development, denied the rape allegation and provided no additional details.

The model's lawyer Jonathan Coad of Keystone Law said: 'I am advising her on a possible harassment claim against Mr Ronaldo'.

A former American model, Kathryn Mayorga, 34, of Las Vegas, accused Ronaldo in a complaint filed a year ago in Nevada of raping her on Jun 13, 2009 just before he joined Real Madrid from Manchester United. Provided everything in the warrant is correct, police in Italy would now be expected to collect a sample of Ronaldo's DNA to be sent to authorities in Las Vegas.

English model Jasmine Lennard who was the girlfriend of Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has vowed to expose the Portugal global so as to help Kathryn Mayorga.

Authorities issued the warrant to Italian court because Ronaldo resides there. Las Vegas police have discovered DNA other than that of the alleged victim on the item of clothing.

Mayorga, now 34, reported to police that she'd been raped and received a medical examination.

But Kathryn Mayorga, who was an aspiring model, aged 25 at the time, claims that he forced himself on her in the penthouse of the Palms Place hotel.

Mayorga first told the German publication Der Spiegel of the alleged assault. "We have been communicating pretty much on a daily basis for the past year and half and I have messages and recordings that'll be invaluable to Kathryn and her team in showing his true nature and character how unwell he is".

Ronaldo has not been served with the lawsuit, Mr Christiansen said. She reported the assault to police the day after but did not pursue the case, and says she was paid $375,000 to keep quiet about the night.
