Rape suit against Cristiano Ronaldo dropped

A rape lawsuit against Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has been quietly dropped, the UK Mirror reports.

A notice of voluntary dismissal was filed last month in Nevada State Court.

The filing didn’t say whether the accuser had reached a settlement with the Portuguese player.

It was reported in March that Juventus, the Italian league champions, wouldn’t participate in the International Champions Cup in the US this summer, to avoid the risk that Ronaldo would be detained by authorities as part of a rape investigation.

Ronaldo publicly denied the allegations and never filed a response to the lawsuit.

Leslie Stovall, a lawyer representing the woman who sued Ronaldo, has refused to respond to a request for comment on the dismissal.
