Earlier this month, German publication Der Spiegel caused a stir after releasing a report claiming the Real Madrid player had settled out of court with a woman whose identity has been protected, but is referred to as "Susan K." in the legal documents, in order to silence her claims that he anally raped her in his Palms Place Hotel room.
According to a letter that the alleged victim wrote the athlete months after the alleged attack (which Der Spiegel has obtained), the soccer star and K. met in the VIP area of a club before they went back to his place. The two allegedly exchanged numbers, kissed, and when "he wanted more, she said 'no.'" That's when it's said he grabbed her and forced himself on her.
Ronaldo's camp responded to the report by calling it "journalistic fiction" and denounced any ties between the celeb and the settlement documents.
