CR7 Lawyer Dismisses Rape Allegations, Threatens German Magazine

Cristiano Ronaldo's lawyers will reportedly take legal action a German magazine after they published accusations made by an American saying she was raped by the player.
 
 
According to Daily Mirror, Ronaldo was on holiday in Las Vegas in 2009 with his cousin and brother-in-law when he met the model.
 
Reports claim Ronaldo allegedly paid the model £287,000 as an out-of-court settlement, which contracted not to mention her claims
 
However, the player's lawyers will no seek legal action against German publication Der Spiegel over the allegations, seaking compensation for moral damages.
 
Ronaldo's lawyer, Schertz Bergmann Rechtsanwälte, has since issued a statement denying the model's rape claim.
 
“The reporting in SPIEGEL is blatantly illegal. It violates the personal rights of our client Cristiano Ronaldo in an exceptionally serious way," The statement read, according to Daily Mail.
 
“This is an inadmissible reporting of suspicions in the area of privacy. It would therefore already be unlawful to reproduce this reporting.
 
“We have been instructed to immediately assert all existing claims under press law against SPIEGEL, in particular, compensation for moral damages in an amount corresponding to the gravity of the infringement, which is probably one of the most serious violations of personal rights in recent years.”
