Cristiano Ronaldo has expelled as "phony news" allegations by a US lady who charges she was assaulted by the Portuguese footballer in 2009.
In an Instagram video, Ronaldo stated: "They need to advance [themselves] by [using] my name. It's ordinary."
Ronaldo's attorneys say they will sue Germany's Der Spiegel magazine, which initially revealed the assertions.
The magazine composed that Kathryn Mayorga had asserted Ronaldo, 33, assaulted her in an inn room in Las Vegas.
Ms Mayorga, 34, is accounted for to have documented an assault report with Las Vegas police soon after the supposed occurrence.
In 2010, she supposedly came to an out-of-court settlement with Ronaldo including a $375,000 (£288,000) installment for concurring never to open up to the world about the charges.
Her legal counselors are currently trying to pronounce the non-revelation assention void.
In an announcement, Ronaldo's legal advisor Christian Schertz said "the revealing in Spiegel is conspicuously unlawful".
He included that he had been told to look for remuneration for "moral harms" over "likely a standout amongst the most genuine infringement of individual rights as of late".
