According to the Associated Press, Ronaldo told police that one of them requested $30,000 to hide the story from the media. (Prostitution is not illegal in Brazil.)
"He admitted to everything, he wanted to have fun," Police inspector Carlos Augusto Nogueira told AP. "But he committed no crime at all, it was immoral at best."
Nogueira said he believed Ronaldo's version of the story because the transvestite left the police station before completing questioning.
