Lawyers for Ronaldo have reportedly threatened to sue the magazine over the story.In the suit, Mayorga said she met Ronaldo, who was then 24 years old, on the evening of June 12, 2009 at the Rain Nightclub in the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.It said she accepted an invitation to join Ronaldo and others in his penthouse suite to “enjoy the view of the Las Vegas strip.”#MeToo movementShe was invited to join guests in a hot tub but declined because she did not have a bathing suit, the complaint said.Ronaldo offered her clothing and then followed her into a bathroom where she was going to change clothes, it said.After she refused his demand to perform oral sex and said she wanted to leave, Ronaldo pulled her into a bedroom and anally raped her while she screamed “no, no, no,” according to the suit. LATEST STORIES FILE – In this Aug. 25, 2018 file photo Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo looks to the sky as he reacts during the Serie A soccer match between Juventus and Lazio at the Allianz Stadium in Turin, Italy. Ronaldo is being sued by a Nevada woman who said he raped her in the penthouse suite of a Las Vegas hotel in 2009 and then dispatched a team of “fixers” to obstruct the criminal investigation and trick her into keeping quiet for $375,000. The suit filed Thursday asks the Clark County District Court to void the 2010 settlement and non-disclosure agreement, claiming the woman was so traumatized by the events that she was incapable of participating in negotiations. (AP Photo/Luca Bruno, file)Cristiano Ronaldo on Wednesday denied accusations by a former American model that he raped her in a Las Vegas hotel in 2009 and said his conscience is clear.Ronaldo’s denial came as lawyers for his accuser said they had obtained damning correspondence between the footballer and his legal team.ADVERTISEMENT The case has threatened the reputation of the Portuguese superstar, arguably the world’s best footballer, with Las Vegas police this week saying they would reopen their file on the matter.“I firmly deny the accusations being issued against me,” he tweeted in Portuguese and English.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back Chriss“Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in,” said the 33-year-old Juventus forward.“My clear conscious (sic) will thereby allow me to await with tranquility the results of any and all investigations,” he added on his Twitter feed @Cristiano, which has nearly 75 million followers. “When Cristiano Ronaldo completed the sexual assault of the plaintiff, he allowed her to leave the bedroom stating he was sorry, he was usually a gentleman,” it said.The lawsuit said Mayorga reported the alleged assault to police the same day and was examined at a local hospital.It said the assault left her with “severe emotional and bodily injuries including but not limited to anal contusions, post-traumatic stress disorder and major depression.”Under pressure from Ronaldo’s “fixers,” Mayorga settled the case “in exchange for a payment of $375,000 and non-disclosure of the sexual assault,” the lawsuit said.It claimed the agreement should be voided because she was “incompetent and lacked the mental capacity to participate in negotiations and settlement of her claims due to the injuries suffered during the initial sexual assault.”Leslie Stovall, another lawyer for Mayorga, told reporters his client had suffered years of trauma as a result of the alleged attack, but had found the strength to speak out thanks to the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment and assault at the hands of powerful men.“The MeToo movement and the women who have stood up and disclosed sexual assaults has given Kathryn a lot of courage, and has enabled her to come forward,” he said.Ronaldo is a five-time winner of FIFA’s men’s player of the year award.The Portuguese striker, a married father of four, left Real Madrid this year to join Juventus for 100 million euros ($117 million).

first_imgA recent study conducted by ChildLink has found that a number of children have suffered from ruptured uteruses, as well as the most dreaded sexually transmitted disease, Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).In this specific research, 338 victims were screened and at least four were discovered to have ruptured uteruses, among other health implications.The report said that many of the children had to be hospitalised as a result of the extent of the abuse, while some even required surgery for their injuries. On the other hand, some children bacame pregnant while others contracted HIV, gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, or other sexually transmitted infections (STIs).According to the document, “Child sexual abuse [CSA] must be seen as an important path for the transmission of HIV, Hepatitis C, and other STIs including the virus that causes cervical cancer. Left untreated, some of these infections will lead to infertility and even death. A person who is abused in childhood and does not receive adequate medical attention, including STI screening, is at risk of suffering irreparable harm and innocently transmitting infections to others”.When it comes to other effects of child sexual abuse, ChildLink found that victims complained more of being sad, getting angry easily, feeling bad, thinking about the abuse “all the time,” crying a lot, feeling down or depressed, and “spacing out a lot.” Participants described feelings of loss of control over their emotions and their lives. Many reported new or nearly constant anxiety.Victims even reported that they are affected by nightmares, problems with sleeping or eating, flashbacks, numbness, irrational fears, incessant crying, and suicidal feelings, including significant suicide attempts.Important to note is that those victims also encounter difficulties in school, as they were usually unable to focus. “Many said their school performance suffered; several said they began getting into trouble at school; many stopped attending school; several regretted that they were unable to complete their CSEC and possibly even go on to further their studies or pursue tertiary level education. Often, CSA precipitated school cessation or failure. We must eliminate CSA so every Guyanese child can reach his or her academic potential,” the report noted.When asked what would be different in their lives if they had not been abused, the victims described completing the activities they were entitled to and enjoying the peace that should be every child’s birth right. Many said that they would have finished school, continued living with their families, been happy, had friends, and would have been able to make something of their lives.One said she “Would have had a proper job and a normal life.” A number of teens expressed their sadness at not being able to finish school and write the CSEC, which they felt would interfere with their ability to get a job for the rest of their lives.One girl whose abusive stepfather kept her isolated at home and did not allow her to play with other children, said she “would have been playing more as a young child,” the report said.Some victims complained of being faced with hardships such as raising a child, on her own, through her victimisation, disputes with parents and other family members which led to them being cast out.All abusers threatened the children implicitly, by demonstrating their power in a variety of ways. Some children reported that the abusers also issued specific threats to make them comply with the abuse and keep it secret. Some abusers threatened to kill the child’s mother, to kill the child (e.g. “I was crying and screaming and he raised his voice and said, ‘Shut your ****ing mouth before I kill you.’”) Children were also threatened that their parents would put them out if they found out, while others were told that they would make the family unhappy, the report stated. According to the report, children were even told that if they spoke out the abusers would tell people they have contracted AIDS.last_img read more

first_imgSam Allardyce is the motivator England need to restore them to Europe’s elite, Kevin Davies has told talkSPORT.The 39-year-old played under Allardyce at Bolton, and is well versed in the veteran manager’s training methods.Having held talks with the FA, the Sunderland boss is set to be confirmed as England supremo on Thursday, with his aim to create a unified team who are pulling in the same direction, with qualification for the 2018 World Cup on the line.And it is Allardyce’s man management skills which make him a great choice to take charge of this current crop of players, according to Davies.Speaking to Kick Off, the former striker revealed that success at Bolton was all down to Allardyce’s man management skills, and the way he inspired his players to make them perform at the top of their game.Davies said: “It’s just a rapport he builds up straight away, and he makes you think: ‘yeah, I really want to play for this guy’.“I think he’s done that with a lot of players. That’s why we had success at Bolton, because of what he gave you individually – he could sit you down and motivate you as an individual – and he could do that in team meetings as well.“He had a lot of great people working alongside him, and I hope he’ll do that with England as well.“[He can] get the whole team, the whole FA and everyone motivated and going in the right direction again. He’s an expert at that.”To further his point, Davies suggested that Allardyce would have no problem dropping established players if they start to upset the apple cart, as he favours a unified dressing room over having star names for the sake of their reputation.He added: “At a tournament where they are spending four or five weeks together, it needs to be the right camp, where they [the players] are all getting on.“He loves the bonding sessions, and he’ll really try to find a way to get that dressing room [united].“If it means that one or two players are evicted from that, who are upsetting the dressing room, he’ll do that – there’s no doubt about that.”last_img read more

first_imgDONEGAL TD Pearse Doherty has joined several organisations in opposing plans to sell off Coillte harvesting rights.Mountaineering Ireland, the Irish Timber Council, Peter Bacon and IMPACT Trade Union all attended a Leinster House briefing today.“All of the groups and individuals who addressed this meeting today highlighted the devastating impact the decision to sell off the harvesting rights for Coillte will have on jobs, tourism, the forestry sector and the state finances,” said Doherty. “There are 42,983 hectares of land in County Donegal under the ownership of Coillte, this is the second highest figure in the state, only being surpassed by Cork.“As the Bacon Report concluded, the sale of forestry harvesting rights would ‘in effect bring an end to Coillte as a commercial entity’. Not only would such a sale be financially bad: entailing a loss of hundreds of millions of euro, but it would also hardly make sense to have Coillte remain in existence at all if the objective is to realise value from such a sale.“Furthermore it was revealed that over 18 million people visited Coillte lands last year. It is clear from this figure that these lands are a significant tourist attraction and amenity. Currently, Coillte operates an open access policy – will this remain the case in future years if private companies have their way or will no trespassing signs be the norm?“The clear implication is that a sale of harvesting rights is in effect the first step in full privatisation. It also has massive implications for other uses of the nine per cent of the County’s land that is under Coillte stewardship. “What for example will happen to any mineral deposits under Coillte land? There was a geological survey conducted some years ago but Coillte are very coy with regards to what it revealed. When Sinn Féin raised this before Christmas at a Committee meeting we were told by Coillte that they have a ‘ball park’ notion of where potentially valuable mineral deposits are to be found.“I wonder do some of the potential privateers, such as former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern, involved with a company that has expressed an interest in acquiring either forestry harvesting rights or even Coillte land, also have a similar ‘ball park’ notion, and is that one of the motives for wanting to gain access to Coillte lands? No doubt certain people know more about those potential deposits than any of the rest of us.“Whatever the motivations for the sale, the best interests of the Irish people are certainly not among them. I am calling on this Government to honour their pre-election pledge not to sell off Coillte to private investors – it is bad enough to consider such a move for short term financial gain, but when all the evidence shows that there will be no gain at all but potentially huge losses then it really is time to go back to the drawing board before it’s too late.” STOP THE SALE OF DONEGAL FORESTS, SAYS DOHERTY AFTER DAIL BRIEFING was last modified: February 26th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CoilltePearse Doherty TDSAYS DOHERTY AFTER DAIL BRIEFINGSTOP THE SALE OF DONEGAL FORESTSlast_img read more
