Leslie Stovall, representing American former model Mayorga, now 34, told The Mail on Sunday: "I have had a call from a woman who claims to have had a similar experience." He refused to name the woman in question.

Ronaldo is accused of anally raping Mayorga in a bedroom while she cried "no, no, no", having grabbed her from a separate room in a Las Vegas penthouse where she was changing.

He is also accused of coercing Mayorga into accepting $375,000 hush money, which her lawyers claim she was 'bullied' into signing, per The Mail.
