Sexy blackmail: Italian police attempt to seduce and extort World Cup winner

Massimo Oddo foils €150,000 extortion plan

Massimo Oddo

Massimo Oddo can sympathise with Spider-Man, as he too has a blessing that is also a curse. His rugged good looks have earned him the affections of pornstars and a delightfully homoerotic fashion shoot, but they also nearly cost him €150,000.

Bild are reporting that the Bayern Munich defender was recently seduced by two sexy (and presumably female) police officers in Italy. They photographed him in “compromising” positions, and two months ago, threatened to publish them if he did not stump up €150,000. Thoughtfully, they also showed the pictures to his wife – and the mother of his two children – Claudia Crivelli.

Oddo pretended to play along, agreeing to drop the money off at a Milan cathedral. However, when the extortionists arrived, they were not greeted by ill-gotten gains, but rather the site of 40 undercover plain-clothed policemen, who were summoned at Oddo’s behest.

In news that will shock people who had no idea there is organised crime in Italy, police say the extortionists may have been backed by a criminal gang who target high-profile celebrities.

Thanks to the excellent work of the polizia, Oddo will not have to sacrifice his chest wax or ridiculously small swimwear budgets.

UPDATE: Thanks to Brooks ‘Smartarse’ Peck at Dirty Tackle, who correctly points out my flawed German translation. There were, in fact, three sexy seductresses, and not two.

    why does the spoiler use lightbox script for its pictures? the idea is so have a thumbnail that gets bigger when you click on it… not for the same sized picture to come up in a new frame, making it utterly pointless

    Quite frequently, the pictures do expand to a bigger size. On this occasion, it did not. Keep trying though! It can be a fun game! Yay!
