The court in Paris convicted the Real Madrid star in an affair that agitated France and caused him to be expelled from the national team about 5 years ago
The Real Madrid striker has been released from prison: The court in France today (Wednesday) convicted Karim Benzema in the extortion case with threats from his French teammate, Matthew and Buena, using a tape in which he was seen having sex. The penalty: one year probation and a fine of $ 85,000.
The affair, which was revealed about 5 years ago, shocked the world of football and caused a shock in the French national team. The focus was on a sex tape of one of the team players, Matthew Valbuena, for which he was blackmailed by people who threatened to publish it.
Benzema advised Wolbuana to pay a ransom to those people and then it was discovered that he actually had an affair with them. The Real star has vehemently denied the allegations all along and has claimed he wanted Velboana’s favor.
The court did not accept his claim and convicted him. Benzema Wolbuana, who currently plays in Greece in the Olympiacos uniform, was not present in court when the sentence was read.
At the opening of the trial last month, one of Benzema’s associates said he had put this affair behind him. “He’s tired of messing with it.”
