Real Madrid and French national team striker Karim Benzema is being formally investigated in an extortion case regarding a sex tape of fellow national team member Mathieu Valbuena.
Benzema was taken into custody Wednesday night for complicity in an attempt to blackmail.
Suspected blackmailers got ahold of a sex tape featuring Valbuena, and reportedly approached a childhood friend of Benzema in an effort to extort money from his teammate.
