The woman who claims she was raped by Cristiano Ronaldo in a Las Vegas penthouse suite says she was suicidal in the wake of the alleged sex attack.
Kathryn Mayorga's lawyers said last night she couldn't face the press at a news conference because she has PTSD and depression nine years on.
Miss Mayorga said in a statement that she wanted to 'hold Cristiano Ronaldo accountable for his actions’ and is trying to tear up a 2010 settlement where she was paid $375,000 (£290,000) by the Juventus star, 33.
She added that she wanted to encourage sex attack victims to come forward ‘no matter how famous, wealthy or powerful’ the other person was.
Ronaldo responded by saying he has a ‘clear conscience’ over allegations from 2009 and the Portuguese football star said rape was an ‘abominable crime that goes against everything that I am’.
Mayorga's lawyers have revealed that they were retained by their client in 2017 after Der Spiegel approached her to do a story when they received copies of her 2010 settlement with Ronaldo.
After learning she was suicidal and had been abusing alcohol, the team of lawyers sent her to a board-certified psychiatrist who diagnosed her with PTSD and major depression.
The psychiatrist also determined that Mayorga was incompetent to participate in the signing of a settlement and non-disclosure in 2010 as a result of these conditions.
Furthermore, the lawyers confirmed what a Los Vegas Metropolitan Police Department officer told DailyMail.com last week when they stated that an investigation into Ronaldo began back in August.
That investigation got underway after the lawyers provided authorities with a copy of the 2010 settlement and a questionnaire that Ronaldo filled out for his team.
But why are some people so desperate in life! We saw the video… you two were happy! The only reason i will believe she has being depressed is if she has not had sex with another man since 2009. If she has, then she has no case!
