Cristiano Ronaldo

The mother of superstar footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo has spoken out to defend him against rape allegations after an American teacher Kathryn Mayorga accused him of raping her in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2009. 

Dolores Aveiro said she had ‘confidence’ in the 34-year-old Portugal forward and insisted: ‘I know the son I have.’ 

The mother-of-four also lashed out at Ronaldo’s accuser, saying she ‘didn’t go to his hotel room to play cards’. 

At a PR launch in Lisbon she said: ‘I have confidence in my son when it comes to what happened. 

‘When she went there, it wasn’t to play cards. It was to do something. I know the son I have.’  

The Portuguese footballer has since denied the claims despite multiple reports that he paid her £290,000 settlement for her silence after they met.
