French Footballer, Franck Ribery and Real Madrid star Bayern Munich are in hot waters and may be convicted for dealing with an underage call girl Zahia Dehar.
Muslim convert Ribery confessed to having sex with the Algerian-born beauty but denied knowing she was underage.
Ironically, Ribery converted to Islam after marrying wife Wahiba who he claims to be his childhood sweetheart. Ribery and Wahiba have two children.
Needless to say, though they are still together, the marriage is on the rocks!
Zahia on the other hand, now 21, has spoken publicly about how the footballer paid £5,000 for first class flights and a five-star hotel to hire her for a single night on his 26th birthday on April 7, 2010.
She told France’s Paris Match magazine: “I was Ribery’s birthday present.”
However, she did tell investigators that she had lied about her age and the players had no way of knowing she was underage.
The age of sexual consent is 15 in France, but the legal age to work as a prostitute is 18.
Six other men who ran the Paris brothel where she worked are also on trial.
But not everyone involved in this is in dire straits. While the players’ futures hang at stake, Zahia has gained quite a lot from the publicity! She has achieved a minor celebrity status in France and has started her own soft-porn website as well as her own brand of lingerie.
