Las Vegas: Cristiano Ronaldo's lawyers have revealed for the first time in court documents that the football superstar paid an amount to settle allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman in a hotel in 2009.

According to a CNN report, the alleged victim said Ronaldo paid $375,000 in a settlement and confidentiality agreement after she accused him of sexual assault.

Ronaldo's legal team acknowledged that the Juventus forward paid $375,000 "to maintain the confidentiality of their dispute" in a motion filed on Friday asking to dismiss the accuser's lawsuit.

Earlier, the woman had claimed to have reached an out of court settlement with the star in 2010, and revealed that she had chosen to speak out against Ronaldo after being inspired by the #MeToo movement.

Ronaldo has always maintained that the encounter was consensual.
