Real Madrid and France international footballer Karim Benzemais in police custody over teammate Mathieu Valbuena’s sextape case.
The sex tape of Valbuena is being shopped around after being obtained from his mobile phone. Blackmailers have threatened they will release the sex tape before Euro 2016.
Karim Benzema’s lawyer said the striker wanted to clear his name.
“When his name was mentioned by the press, Karim Benzemaimmediately let the investigating judge know he was available to investigators,” lawyer Sylvain Cormiertold Le Parisien newspaper.
It is thought that Benzema mentioned the video to Valbuena during a national team training session at Clairefontaine in early October, ahead of matches against Armenia and Denmark.
It was unclear whether he was offering friendly advice or trying to press his team-mate to pay the blackmailers.
This is not the first time Benzema is being held by the police. In 2014, he and his teammate Franck Ribery were cleared of accusations they had slept with an under-age prostitute.
