Cape Town - A three part video has been leaked on Twitter of Cristiano Ronaldo and rape accuser, Kathryn Mayorga, at the Rain Nightclub in the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on the night of the alleged incident.

WATCH: Ronaldo has 20 days to answer sex assault complaint

Mayorga, of Las Vegas, accused Ronaldo, in a 32-page complaint filed last month with a district court in Nevada, of raping her on June 12, 2009.

The 34-year-old female alleges in the lawsuit that she was pressured into signing a nondisclosure agreement to keep the alleged rape secret and is seeking no less than $200 000 in penalties and damages.

On Wednesday, the football megastar denied accusations by the former American model and said his conscience is clear.

Ronaldo's denial came as lawyers for his accuser said they had obtained damning correspondence between the footballer and his legal team.

The case has threatened the reputation of the Portuguese superstar, arguably the world's best footballer, with Las Vegas police this week saying they would reopen their file on the matter.

"I firmly deny the accusations being issued against me," he tweeted in Portuguese and English.

"Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in.

"My clear conscious (sic) will thereby allow me to await with tranquility the results of any and all investigations"
