Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines? “When Cristiano Ronaldo completed the sexual assault of the plaintiff, he allowed her to leave the bedroom stating he was sorry, he was usually a gentleman,” it said.The lawsuit said Mayorga reported the alleged assault to the Las Vegas police the same day and underwent an examination at a local hospital.It said the assault had left her with “severe emotional and bodily injuries including but not limited to anal contusions, posttraumatic stress disorder, and major depression.”It said she developed an alcohol problem and was suicidal.Under pressure from Ronaldo’s “fixers,” Mayorga settled the case “in exchange for a payment of $375,000 and non-disclosure of the sexual assault,” the lawsuit said.It claimed the agreement should be voided because she was “incompetent and lacked the mental capacity to participate in negotiations and settlement of her claims due to the injuries suffered during the initial sexual assault.”The suit also called for the agreement to be dismissed because it amounted to concealment of a crime for which there is no statute of limitations.The unidentified “fixers” were named as co-defendants in the lawsuit, which also accuses the Juventus forward of violating the 2010 nondisclosure agreement.In an interview with Der Spiegel, Mayorga, who has a degree in journalism from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, said she was inspired to come forward in part by the #MeToo movement which has exposed the sexual abuse of women by powerful men.Ronaldo is a five-time winner of FIFA’s men’s player of the year award.

Rockets buckle down on Kemba Walker to frustrate feisty Hornets

first_imgSports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Well, that plan got ditched after one half.Paul told D’Antoni at halftime he wanted to guard Walker after the Hornets three-time All-Star erupted for 27 points on 9-of-10 shooting. D’Antoni agreed, and the change worked — Paul helped hold Walker to eight points in the second half as the Rockets escaped with a 118-113 win.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissSPORTSCoronation night?SPORTSThirdy Ravena gets‍‍‍ offers from Asia, Australian ball clubsJames Harden scored 30 points, Clint Capela had 23 points and a career-high 17 rebounds, and the Rockets won their third straight. Paul also heated up in the fourth quarter and finished with 17 points and 10 assists for the Rockets (36-25).“I would rather not (guard Walker) as much as possible, but I also like playing defense,” Paul said, adding that nobody in the league changes pace like Walker does, making him a difficult cover. Harden had plenty of support, especially from Capela, who was all over the glass.The Rockets trailed by four entering the fourth quarter but opened with an 18-4 run behind six points from Paul, including four on fall-away mid-range jumpers.The Hornets battled back behind Walker and Jeremy Lamb, who had 18 points and 14 rebounds, and had a chance to tie with 17 seconds left. Walker missed a leaning 3-pointer from the right wing and the Hornets fouled Harden, who made two free throws to make it a five-point game. Walker missed another 3 with seven seconds left.“Maybe it was some attitude adjustments,” D’Antoni said of his team’s second-half defense. “We just played harder. In the second quarter, we lost our spirit completely and (the Hornets) played well.”The Hornets are a half-game ahead of the Magic in the battle for the eighth playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.“We just have to stay confident,” Walker said. “We are playing really hard, competing our butts off. That’s really all that matters.”TIP INSRockets: Scored 41 points in the first quarter on 61 percent shooting. … Faried didn’t start but still managed to pick up his fourth foul by the middle of the second quarter. … Gordon had six points and missed all five 3-point attempts in the start.Hornets: Walker became the first Eastern Conference player to reach 200 3-pointers when he buried a step-back jumper against Harden in the first quarter.PAUL’S RETURN View comments Eugenie Bouchard’s bid for Australian Open spot ends in qualifying Paul, who grew up in Winston-Salem and played at Wake Forest, said he enjoyed finally getting a chance to play a regular-season game in his home state. He’d missed the last two because of injuries.“So I’m sure my grandparents and all my family — all 300 of them that came to the game — enjoyed it,” Paul said with a laugh. “It’s nice to play here and not be in a suit.”BATUM’S DEFENSEBatum’s defense on Harden was outstanding all night as he flustered the MVP candidate at times and made a couple steals which led to dunks.But Batum wasn’t relishing in his effort after the game, saying “we still lost the game so it doesn’t mean anything to me. … We did a good job, trying to contain them, had a game plan.
