Benzema found guilty in sex tape extortion scandal


Karim Benzema was sentenced to one year in prison after being found guilty of attempted extortion of his former French teammate Mathieu Valbuena.

The Court of Versailles also ordered the Real Madrid star to pay a fine of 75,000 euros for his role in the sex tape scandal that resulted in Benzema’s exclusion from the French team for several years.

In addition, Noel Le Graet, the current president of the French Football Federation, made clear three weeks ago that the court’s decision would not affect Benzema’s career with Les Blues.

This means that despite being found guilty, the Real Madrid striker will participate at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar with France after leading them to UEFA Nations League glory back in October.
