Benzema suing for breach of confidentiality in sex tape case

PARIS (AP) -- Karim Benzema's lawyer will take legal action against a radio station that published a transcript of a conversation between the France striker and a friend which was recorded as part of the investigation over a sex tape involving national teammate Mathieu Valbuena.

Sylvain Cormier told The Associated Press on Tuesday that French radio Europe 1 violated the confidentiality of an official investigation.

The extracts published on Monday tend to give credence to the claim that Benzema, who was charged last week with conspiracy to blackmail and participation to a criminal group, took an active role in the extortion scam.

The investigation, which includes wiretap evidence, started when Valbuena decided to take legal action after being contacted by a man claiming to be in possession of an incriminating sex tape.
