English model Jasmine Lennard vows to expose Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo's lawyer says USA investigators are seeking DNA from the soccer star in their investigation of a Nevada woman's allegation he raped her in his Las Vegas hotel penthouse in 2009.

The German newspaper Der Spiegel reported in October previous year that Ronaldo allegedly employs a team of fixers, including at least one private detective, to deal with the public relations disaster he faced after he was accused of rape by Kathryn Mayorga.

The reports state that the warrant has been sent to the court system in Italy, where the five-time Ballon d'Or victor plays for league leaders Juventus.

The warrant has reportedly been sent to Italy, where Ronaldo plays for the Turin-based Juventus football team.

Las Vegas police reopened their investigation into the case shortly after Der Spiegel published its report.

Mayorga's lawsuit accuses Ronaldo, 33, and his camp of taking advantage of her fragile emotional state to coerce her into signing a settlement and nondisclosure agreement in 2009.

She alleges the striker then paid her $375,000 to keep it a secret.

In a statement, Ronaldo's legal team said Ronaldo had "no specific recollection" of meeting Lennard at any point.

Christiansen confirmed the payment was made to Ms Mayorga, but said some documents presented as evidence had been "stolen" and "completely fabricated", while Ronaldo described rape as an "abominable crime" within an October statement he issued to "firmly deny" the accusations. Mayorga has said Ronaldo raped her in a hotel room in 2009. The goal is to test it to see if it matches DNA found on the dress worn by Kathryn Mayorga on the night she claims Ronaldo raped her.

The police case was closed in 2009 when the alleged victim, Kathryn Mayorga, declined to name her assailant.

Ronaldo himself has repeatedly denied the allegations, initially in a set of tweets and later in a number of interviews. She went on to explain how she believes Ronaldo's private persona is so different from the one he uses in public.
