Benzema admits to lying over sex tape

Reuters . Paris

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has admitted to lying to fellow France international Mathieu Valbuena over a sex video at the centre of an alleged blackmailing attempt, Le Parisien reported on Friday.
The French daily quoted extracts from Benzema’s hearing with a judge on Jan 28 in which the player reportedly said he did not watch Valbuena’s sex tape after telling the Olympique Lyonnais forward that he did.
‘I should have told him I had not seen it,’ Benzema was quoted as telling the judge.
‘I was showing off, I was acting…It’s like when you describe a movie you have not seen. I have never seen that video.’
Benzema, who has been under formal investigation since last November, has also been suspended indefinitely from the France team.
Benzema approached Valbuena about the tape during a France training camp last October.
