WASHINGTON (AFP) – The rape lawsuit against Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has been dropped, according to a report from Bloomberg yesterday.

A notice of voluntary dismissal was filed last month in Nevada state court in Las Vegas.

The filing did not say whether the accuser, American Kathryn Mayorga, had reached a settlement.

Mayorga filed a complaint last year alleging she was sexually assaulted by Ronaldo in 2009 in a Las Vegas hotel.

Ronaldo, 34, strongly denied the accusations.

Mayorga said last year that while she had agreed to a financial settlement with Ronaldo shortly after the alleged incident, her emotional trauma at the time did not allow her to participate in the mediation process.
