It could be either:

1.) Publicity stunt

2.) Prostitute wanting money

3.) Actuall Rape

The kids is so young and if he did rape a woman it would be a very bad mistake he would regret when he grows older in his football career.

I think he would regret it no matter the age.

The 21-year-old Van Persie has been in custody since his arrest on Monday over rape allegations filed with police over the weekend.

He appeared before an investigating judge Thursday and was formally charged. He will now be transferred to a prison while prosecutors build their case.

"I think my client is dealing with a lady who feels she wasn't treated with enough respect," Van Persie's lawyer Abraham Moszkowicz said. "Shortly after the incident she had contact with two or three people, and the only thing she complained about at that moment was that someone played a joke with her clothes, and not a word about having been raped."

Prosecution spokeswoman Jeichien de Graaff said the decision to keep Van Persie in custody "was based on the seriousness of the alleged offense and in the interests of the investigation."

If convicted, Van Persie could face up to 12 years in prison, although sentences of that length are rarely given in the Netherlands for rape.

Details of the allegations were not released by prosecutors.

Dutch media reported that the accuser is a former stripper, identified only as Sandra, who claimed Van Persie raped her Saturday in a Rotterdam hotel room.

Prosecutors are reportedly comparing a DNA sample with material obtained at a hotel room.

Van Persie is one of the country's most promising young players. He scored five goals last season in the English Premier League.
