Information surfaced on Friday through the German publication, in which American woman Kathryn Mayorga alleged that the five-time Ballon d'Or victor raped her in a hotel room in Las Vegas nine years ago.
Former FIFA player and captain of the Portugal national team, Cristiano Ronaldo, has dismissed as "fake news" accusations by an American woman who said that she was sexually abused by the footballer in 2009.
The suit says Mayorga reported the assault to the police that day and also went to the hospital, but that both cops and hospital staff told her Ronaldo and his camp would try to make her look like she was trying to turn a consensual sexual interaction into extortion.
According to the documents submitted to the Clark County District Court in Nevada, after the pair met at a night club, Ronaldo invited Mayorga and a friend back to his penthouse suite. "This is an inadmissible reporting of suspicions in the area of privacy".
Football megastar Cristiano Ronaldo has labeled the rape claims against him as "fake news" and is preparing to sue.
Ronaldo appeared to dispute the claims in an Instagram live post on Friday: "What they said today, fake - fake news". It's normal. They want to be famous to say my name, but it is part of the job.
Sturridge's Stunning Goal Leaves Rüdiger Lost For Words
Arsenal legend, Ian Wright, has predicted the scoreline of the Premier League game between Chelsea and Liverpool on Saturday. Daniel Sturridge's stunning last-minute equaliser against his former club rescued a point for Liverpool in dramatic fashion.
She then hired a lawyer and in 2010 negotiated a $400,000 out-of-court settlement - which included a clause that she would never go public with her allegations.
He is then alleged to have offered her clothes to change into and pointed her towards the bathroom. It would therefore already be unlawful to reproduce this reporting. Ronaldo was there on vacation with his brother-in-law and cousin.
He added that he had been instructed to seek compensation for "moral damages" over "probably one of the most serious violations of personal rights in recent years".

Ronaldo was on the verge of joining Real Madrid from Manchester United at the time of the alleged assault, and this summer moved to Italian giants Juve in a €100 million deal.
Spiegel reported that Ms Mayorga's lawyer, Leslie Mark Stovall, has filed a civil complaint to declare the non-disclosure agreement void.
