Cristiano Ronaldo told a judge he was being picked on because of his star status during a grilling on claims he dodged £13.1million in tax.
The Real Madrid footie ace, 32, was quizzed by magistrates in the Spanish capital for 90 minutes at a pre-trial hearing.
But while the session was behind closed doors, it was last night reported that Ronaldo rowed with the judge, saying: “If I wasn’t called Cristiano Ronaldo I wouldn’t be sat here.”
And Judge Mónica Gómez Ferrer hit back: “You are mistaken. Plenty of anonymous people have sat where you are.
“You are under investigation for an alleged financial crime based on the evidence provided and upon which it is my duty to make a ruling.”
Ronaldo was expected to make a statement afterwards but entered and left via an underground garage in the Pozuelo de Alarcón suburb.
