The family of Juventus football star Cristiano Ronaldo who has been accused of rape have spoken out concerning the allegations against him.
Taking to Facebook and Instagram to show her support for her brother, his sister, Katia Aveiro and mother, Dolores Aveiro posted a photo of Ronaldo in a Superman cape with the caption:
“I want to see who has the courage to put this photo on their profile for a week and make a chain for him..for Portugal, for him, for us and for the union of our people, for justice. He deserves it,” the caption for the photo read.
The photo also had two hashtags in Portuguese. One translates as “#Ronaldo, we are with you to the end” and the other as “Justice for CR7”.
In the wake of Kathryn Mayorga’s accusation that the 33-year-old Portuguese assaulted her at a Las Vegas hotel in 2009, three sexual misconduct claims have come up and currently under investigation. As part of her claim, Mayorga also alleges that Ronaldo paid a settlement fee of $375,000 at the time.
The football star has maintained his innocence twice on social media, tagging it as “fake news”.
