Barcelona star Gerard Pique and his popstar wife Shakira are reportedly being blackmailed over an alleged sex tape.
We should stress straight away that there is absolutely no suggestion that this involves either Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema, nor his international team-mate Mathieu Valbuena.
Benzema is currently being criminally investigated for his involvement in the extortion of fellow Frenchman and Lyon midfielder Valbuena in relation to a sex tape Valbuena is said to feature.
And now Spain stalwart Pique has also become embroiled in a similar case, with news website Diario Vasco claiming that the three-time Champions League winner and his missus are being held to ransom over the release of an intimate tape.
The report claims that, the couple are being blackmailed for a large sum of money by a former employee, who has threatened to distribute the video tape featuring Pique and Shakira involved in several sexual acts.
Neither Shakira nor her husband have confirmed the story, but they are yet to deny it either.
Blackmail and extortion cases of this type are punishable by up to five years in prison in Spain.
