Two of the three cross-dressing prostitutes involved in the scandal with Ronaldo have admitted lying about having sex and using drugs with the AC Milan striker.
The 31-year-old Brazil international is in his home country as he recovers from a cruciate ligament injury and has become embroiled in controversy after contracting the services of the transvestites – believing them to be women – and taking them to a motel.
Ronaldo is then said to have tried to get out of the situation after one of the men went in search of drugs.
Two of them accepted pay-offs of 1,000 reais (€381), but Ronaldo has claimed that the third, named as Andreia Albertini, demanded 50,000 reais (£63,500) and threatened to post a video on the internet if he was not paid.
Two of the prostitutes have now withdrawn their allegations, volunteering the information to local police.
Police inspector Carlos Augusto Nogueira said: “There was no drugs or sex that night.
“They said that they invented it all because they failed to receive the money they intended as extortion.”
Ronaldo’s relationship with Maria Beatriz Anthony ended as a result of the scandal, while a number of his endorsements are under threat.
