Cristiano Ronaldo has been asked for a DNA sample as he cooperates with police in Las Vegas over allegations he raped United States woman Kathryn Mayorga in the city in 2009, according to American media reports.

English model Jasmine Lennard who was the girlfriend of Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has vowed to expose the Portugal global so as to help Kathryn Mayorga.

A key piece of evidence in the investigation is a dress from the night in question nine years ago.

Ronaldo firmly denies the claims and is offering police full cooperation, including providing a DNA sample, U.S. news outlet TMZ Sports reports, citing sources close to the player. However, in previous statements Christiansen has strenuously denied the allegations, alleging that what occurred in Las Vegas was consensual.

Investigations are still going on the allegations that Ronaldo allegedly assaulted Kathryn Mayorga in America even though the Portuguese has denied what he was accused of.

Lennard, who was the first celebrity to be evicted in the 2012 series of Celebrity Big Brother, tweeted after watching Surviving R Kelly: 'On that note and after much thought I am reaching out to Kathryn Mayorga and her legal team to offer my assistance in her rape allegation against @Cristiano please contact me.

Ronaldo, then 24, was on vacation in Las Vegas and met Ms. Mayorga in the Rain nightclub at the Palms Casino Resort before inviting her to a party in his suite, according to her civil complaint. It seeks to void a $375,000 non-disclosure settlement after the 2009 encounter.

However, her lawyers now want to annul that agreement, which she says she only signed because she was "terrified of retaliation" and of "being publicly humiliated by being identified as a victim of sexual assault".
