Brazilian striker Ronaldo quizzed by Rio police after motel ‘row with transvestite prostitutes’
Brazil striker Ronaldo was questioned by police after a run-in with three transvestite prostitutes he took to a motel.
The AC Milan star left an upmarket Rio de Janeiro nightclub with the call girls, according to police, but offered them about £300 each to leave when he discovered they were men.
Two accepted but Ronaldo claims the other, Andre Luis Ribeiro Albertino, demanded £15,000.
She posted a grainy video on YouTube which purports to show Ronaldo and also posed with car documents said to belong to the three-time FIFA World Player of the Year. Prostitution is not illegal in Brazil. However, according to reports in Brazil, he told a police officer he feared the episode could end his career.
Police chief Carlos Augusto Nogueira Pinto said: “Ronaldo’s testimony is more reliable. From zero to 10, I give his testimony a nine. “He was very excited and wanted to go out and have fun, without the press knowing. “Ronaldo said he is not good in the head and that he is going through psychological problems because of his recent surgery. “But he committed no crime at all, it was immoral at best.” The player is back in Brazil recovering from a career-threatening knee injury. Ronaldo released a press statement, saying: “In view of recent events and in order to clarify the athlete Ronaldo has never been a user of drugs, had no criminal complaint registered against him and is the victim of an attempted extortion.”
