The Portugal international's lawyers have indicated their intention to sue Der Spiegel for its "blatantly illegal" reporting.

What's more, Ronaldo reportedly insisted that he was a "good guy" except for the "one percent". Kathyrn Mayorga was born and raised in Las Vegas, suffered from a learning disability and played softball and soccer in her youth.

Her allegations cite that she was in the bathroom changing her clothes and Ronaldo came to her and exposed himself while asking her to perform a sex act on him. However, documents revealed by the publication show that Ronaldo, when originally asked by his legal representation, acknowledged that Mayorga repeatedly denied his advances and said "no" during the encounter.

Later, Ronaldo allegedly paid her $375,000 (€320,000) as a settlement.

Ms Mayorga, 34, is reported to have filed a rape report with Las Vegas police shortly after the alleged incident.

According to Deadspin's synopsis of the report, in June 2009, Mayorga, 25 at the time, had met Ronaldo, then 22, at a nightclub at the Palms Casino.

She later hired a lawyer, and in 2010 negotiated a £287,000 out-of-court settlement.

The documents add: 'The plaintiff [Ms Mayorga] refused and stated she wanted to leave the hotel suite.

In a public display of support for Ronaldo, his 23-year-old girlfriend Rodríguez, who mothered his second child, Alana, issued a statement on her Instagram account.

However, the lawsuit then alleges that Ronaldo's team hired "fixers" to shadow her, stalk her, and dig up dirt in a bid to discredit any potential criminal case.

Appearing relaxed and smiling in the live streamed video, Ronaldo suggested Ms Mayorga was making the accusations to garner fame off the back of his celebrity status.

The lawsuit also the psychological impact of the incident had made Ms Mayorga feel suicidal and left her struggling to maintain her relationships and stay in work.

In the document, X says that she was lying on her side.

Last night Las Vegas Police declined to comment.

Even Mayorga had noticed that she was being followed.

Those statements mirrored thoughts she once had about Ronaldo, she told the magazine.
