That's how this weekend's Der Spiegel article starts, and it's about Kathryn Mayorga, a 34-year-old American who filed a lawsuit Friday against Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, accusing him of raping her almost a decade ago, per USA Today. Mayorga's attorney says Ronaldo's team of "fixers" negotiated a $375,000 settlement with her that included a nondisclosure agreement.
Mayorga claims Ronaldo fell to his knees after the alleged incident and told her he was "99 percent" a "good guy" let down by the "one percent".
Nine years ago, on that day he was accused of raping a woman named Kathryn Mayorga who was 25 at that time and worked at a bar in Las Vegas. "I'm (a) happy man and all, all good". It's normal. They want to be famous - to say my name.
"[The report] violates the personal rights of our client Cristiano Ronaldo in an exceptionally serious way", Shertz's statement said. At that point, the lawsuit alleges Ronaldo entered the bathroom, exposed himself, and asked her to perform a sex act, which Mayorga refused.

His lawyers have said they will seek "compensation for moral damages" on his behalf in response to the "inadmissible" and "unlawful" reports.
However, her lawyers now want to annul that agreement, which she says she only signed because she was "terrified of retaliation" and of "being publicly humiliated by being identified as a victim of sexual assault".
Kathryn claims that she went to the hospital for a sexual assault examination after Cristiano's alleged attack, and also reported the situation to police. The allegations form the basis of Mayorga's claims of coercion and fraud, racketeering and civil conspiracy, and abuse of process.
Der Spiegel says it has documents in which Ronaldo is referred to as X and Mayorga as C. In one of the documents, X states: "She said no and stop several times". His lawyers are set to sue German news magazine Der Spiegel, which published the allegations.
She described to the German magazine why she accepted the hush money in the first place - paid from a company account in the British Virgin Islands.
