Those neckerchief-donning emo kids who burgled Lindsay Lohan and friends last month are old news. Balloon Boy’s dad pulling the mylar over everyone’s eyes? Pffft. So last week. The hot new Hollywood crime is extortion. First David Letterman, now Cindy Crawford. Popeater tells the compelling tale:
A German model was charged Thursday with trying to squeeze $100,000 out of Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber over a photo of their then-7-year-old daughter bound to a chair and gagged.
The photo was reportedly taken by the couples nanny during a game of “cops and robbers,” according to an affidavit obtained by the AP. The unnamed nanny has not been charged. According to affidavit, Kayalar stole the photo from nanny somehow and repeatedly tried to get money from Crawford and Gerber starting this July.
