According to TMZ Sports, Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo will cooperate with Las Vegas Police after he was asked to submit a DNA sample for the investigation into rape allegations against him.

CNN reported on the case in October, noting Kathryn Mayorga said Ronaldo raped her in Las Vegas in 2009. The CNN report cited a lawsuit that alleged Ronaldo said "he was sorry, he was usually a gentleman" after the alleged attack.

Mayorga said she received $375,000 for her silence in 2009, but the lawsuit said she was not in a fit emotional state to sign the nondisclosure agreement.

The lawsuit is attempting to void the nondisclosure agreement, and police reopened the investigation in 2018 after it was originally closed in 2009.
