How has the Ronaldo revelations not been commented on yet? Absolutely awful. I wonder how Juventus/the football community writ large will react.

A woman has come out and shed light on an incident from 2009 in Nevada where she claims that Ronaldo sexually assaulted her. I don't think there's any way to read all of the information thus far compiled and the article by der spiegel and not think that there is a very significant chance that she is telling the truth.

The relevant reading is all here:

Ronaldo and his legal team have responded to the claims by saying it is fake news and threatening to sue der spiegel for "violation of personal rights" which is pretty laughable.

There is a civil suit which is pending in Nevada, but I have no idea what will come of it. Can't say I'm too optimistic of any real action being taken against Ronaldo, but for me this is a stain on him that will never be removed.

TBH she shouldn't be allowed to do this. Rape/sexual assault allegations can ruin reputations if false.
What is in that doesn't look good for Ronaldo but you shouldn't be allowed to accept a settlement, not have your allegations tested and proven in a criminal court, then proceed to speak up about the incident and drag him through the mud again.

The claims may be true, I of course don't know. Taking an out of court settlement to me should signify the end of proceedings.
You want him to answer for what you say he did then take him to court and get it proven.

He basically admitted it in that questionaire he submitted to his lawyer that she was saying, "No, stop." Whether or not anything comes of all this remains to be seen but the information provided by der Speigel is incredibly damning.

Appalling reading. If true his actions simply cannot be defended and he should have the book thrown at him.

Yes I mentioned this in the on topic thread and for me it is worth noting again here. It’s a staggering admission.

No doubt a lot of these claims are dismissed as just another person perhaps trying to sling mud at a celebrity in order to try and claim a cash settlement. However, this is different for me.

Ronaldo and his legal team publicly say this was consensual, however it seems privately he admitted she was telling him “no” and to “stop”. How the fu** is that consensual?

She was saying no, but it seemed he continued regardless. Then Ronaldo and his team claim another guy caused her injuries, not him.

So often in these situations, unfortunately women are discredited and it seems the onus is on them to prove that their version is the truth.

However, I’d say that’s flipped on its head when the defendant has effectively admitted he heard the victim say no and stop, yet refused to do so.

This is f’ed. So many details in this case are horrendous. The threats made against her, the intimidation, not allowing her family to be present at mediation, Ronaldo failing to show up on the day etc.

It’s all f’ed up. Her life has never been the same since and perhaps will never be. I’m devastated for her and Ronaldo has a lot to ******* answer for here.

Waits 10 years to say anything and goes to the media , rather than the police.

Innocent until proven guilty ,doesnt count for much these days.

I mean did you even read the article? She went to the police immediately after the incident, and there is filed evidence of her report.

Have just finished working my way through that, wow. Heavy reading indeed.

Quite staggering that it’s stated Ronaldo admitted in writing to his team that she repeatedly said “no” and “stop”. WTF.
Nothing huge in the media about it though. Nobody is reporting it?? It's weird.

Your comments are embarrassing since you don't even know what happened and as of now the claims are completely unfounded.
Ah yes, I was wondering when you would crawl out of your hole and chime in. I bet you got especially giddy out of his usage of “fake news” :D

The bloke with a topless Ronaldo avatar leaps to his immediate defence, well blow me down!

Yes only a few snippets here and there, in fact I’d only heard about it because it was mentioned in the on topic thread originally.

She's attention seeking until Ronaldo is proven guilty.
This doesn’t help at all. No, she is really not attention seeking. Innocent until proven guilty for sure but calling this lady an attention seeker doesn’t help anyone. Especially not victims of sexual abuse

Maybe Real Madrid were given forewarning that the s**t was about to hit the fan in the next couple of months regarding this and decided to sell him to an unsuspecting club.

The embarrassing part is saying “you don’t even know what happened” to a person who most likely read the court documents of exactly what happened.
