The legal team representing Kathryn Mayorga, the former American model who has accused Cristiano Ronaldo of rape, is set to fly to London to interview an alleged former girlfriend of the Juventus superstar after her recent accusations.
Mayorga has accused Ronaldo of sexually assaulting her in a Las Vegas hotel room in ten years ago and the legal firm representing her has confirmed that representatives from the team will meet with his alleged ex-girlfriend Jasmine Lennard, who has offered her assistance after making accusations of her own.
In tweets that surfaced last week, the Celebrity Big Brother UK contestant said Ronaldo was a 'psychopath' and offered her help to Mayorga in her high-profile case.
She tweeted last Tuesday: "No one has any idea what he is truly like. If they had half a clue they'd be horrified."

Lennard, who claims to have dated the five-time Ballon d'Or winner in 2009 said she had been in contact with him over the past 18-months.
"I can confirm that Leslie Mark Stovall has spoken to Ms. Leonard regarding Cristiano Ronaldo," said Stovall & Associates attorney Larissa Drohobyczer, as per BBC Football.
"Mr. Stovall's travel to London England will be based upon his discussions with London lawyer Jonathan Coad and his client Jasmine Lennard."
However, amidst the strong allegations, a statement issued by Ronaldo's legal team to UK newspaper the Mirror said the footballer had no relationship or any form of contact with Ms Lennard.
"He has not had a relationship with her and he has not had any contact with her, whether in the last 18 months as Ms Lennard suggests, or otherwise.
"The voice notes posted by Ms Lennard on social media are not of Mr Ronaldo. Mr Ronaldo will take appropriate legal action in due course."
Meanwhile, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police has made an official request to Italian authorities to collect a DNA sample from Ronaldo.
