Djibril Cisse arrested over sex tape blackmail

Former Liverpool striker Djibril Cisse has been arrested over an alleged sex-tape blackmail plot targeting France star Mathieu Valbuena.

He was one of four people questioned by police over the alleged “extortion” early this morning.

The story was reported by L’Express in France.

Sources in the country also told the site that despite his arrest “the existence of the intimate video is not proven”.

And they expect Cisse to be cleared by French cops following their investigation.

Even by Cisse’s standards this is a mad one.

He bought the title of Lord of the Manor of Frodsham when at Liverpool and as recently as yesterday was in the news for calling his ex-wife a “disgrace” for appearing on reality TV.

Cisse, 34, also played for Sunderland and QPR.
