Cristiano Ronaldo has been on the news recently for some bad reasons, sleeping with an under-aged prostitute, and being accused of rape.
The driver, Vince Humphrey, who picked up a British woman from the five-star Sanderson Hotel in Marylebone, London, who has accused Christiano Ronaldo of raping her in 2005 has said she was ‘happy and excited’ when she got in the car.
Vince Humphrey claimed that the woman was ‘giggling’ after leaving the former Real Madrid player’s hotel room and told the chauffeur about Ronaldo’s ‘incredible body,’
So Mr Humphrey told the Sun, when he heard the British woman he picked up in his Mercedes E-class was accusing Ronaldo of rape, he was ‘bewildered.’
Chauffeur Mr Humphrey’s gave a statement to police in 2005 and the CPS later dropped the case against Ronaldo.
Ronaldo is currently facing allegations of sexual assault from American Kathryn Mayorga who claims he raped her in the penthouse suite of the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas in June 2009.
Juventus star Ronaldo has strongly denied the allegations, and posted on Twitter earlier this week in defense of himself.
“I firmly deny the accusations being issued against me. Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in.”
The police are now facing pressure to reopen the case in the light of Ms Mayorga’s allegations.
Ronaldo made a £287,000 settlement with her in 2010 and court papers obtained by The Mail on Sunday detail how lawyers for Ms Mayorga are seeking to overturn the settlement.
However, they claim she was ‘bullied’ into signing it.
Ms Mayorga’s lawyer Leslie Stovall has said he has been contacted by another woman who ‘claims to have had a similar experience.’
The lawyer also said he’d like to speak to the footballer’s exes as ‘they’ll have a great insight into his conduct.’
