Karim Benzema to stand trial in ‘sex tape’ case in October

Mar 31, 2021 10:55 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema will face trial for his alleged involvement in blackmailing former France teammate Mathieu Valbuena in a "sex tape" scandal in October, French prosecutors said on Thursday. He is accused of involvement in a plot to extort money from Valbuena by pressurising his former national teammate to pay blackmailers who threatened to reveal an intimate video in which Valbuena featured. Instead, Valbuena informed the police. Though Benzema denies any wrongdoing, but has not been selected for his country since the affair came to light in 2015.
