Manchester, England (CNN)Cristiano Ronaldo said he was a “happy man” and that the truth will come out about the rape allegation against him, while answering questions Monday at a news conference in Manchester, England.
Speaking for the first time since Kathryn Mayorga went public with her accusations, Ronaldo said: “I know I am an example. I know, 100%. On the pitch and outside the pitch. So I am always smiling, I am happy man, I’m blessed that I play in a fantastic club. I have a fantastic family, I have four kids, I am healthy. I have everything. So the rest, it doesn’t interfere on me. I’m very, very well.”
Mayorga says the star Juventus forward raped her in a Las Vegas hotel room
in 2009 while she repeatedly screamed no, according to a lawsuit filed in Clark County, Nevada.
