So…the Cindy Crawford extortionist has surrendered. That guy was crazy if her thought he was going to get money for some dumb picture! Fool! It was probably devastating to know that someone was trying to cause harm to your family especially because a little girl was involved…disgusting!
According to E!
Edis Kayalar, the 26-year-old man accused of trying to extort $100,000 from the supermodel and husbandÂ Rande Gerber, turned himself in late Monday to police in Stuttgart, Germany.
According to authorities there, Kayalar surrendered in connection with theÂ federal criminal complaint lodged by the couple last week. They claim Kayalar threatened to release a “prank” photo their nanny took of their then 7-year-old daughter tied to a chair and gagged during a game of cops and robbers. He demanded Gerber and Crawford hand over the money or he would make the seemingly inappropriate picture public.
The FBI subsequently launched a criminal investigation and a warrant was issued in Kayalar’s home country. He had been deported from the U.S. a month ago on an unrelated matterâ€”Kayalar has aÂ violent history with his ex-wife and former girlfriend that include allegations of rape and beatings.
He was booked on one count of extortion in the Crawford case and faces up to two years in prison if convicted. He’s due to appear before a judge sometime today.
