Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo will not be charged for an alleged rape in 2009, according to the Associated Press. A woman claimed she was raped by Ronaldo in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The authorities investigated the matter. However, prosecutor Steve Wolfson said the incident did not happen.

Ronaldo’s attorney Peter Christiansen said the sex was consensual. However, Kathryn Mayorga and her attorneys argued otherwise.

She also has a lawsuit that is ongoing against Ronaldo in Las Vegas, according to the story. She alleges that either Ronaldo — or people working for him — allowed a confidential financial settlement to go public.

At press time, it is not clear what is going to happen with the lawsuit.

Ronaldo just completed his first season with Juventus in Serie A. Before joining Juventus, he played for Sporting CP, Manchester United, and Real Madrid.

This past season, Ronaldo had 21 goals in 31 matches. He also had eight assists in 2,688 minutes.

Several days later, he played in Portugal’s 1-0 win over Netherlands in the UEFA Nationals League final.
