He labelled charges against him as masquerade and has refused to show up in court. Responding to the courts decision, his lawyer said he and his team are really “flabbergasted’. He has pledged to do his best to exonerate the French footballer.
“we are quite flabbergasted by this judgement. An appeal is necessary. He will be exonerated at the height of this appeal”
Mathieu Valbuena who was in court explained his intentions in informing authorities about the incident.

“When Benzema told me he wanted to talk to me, I did not think he would talk to me about that. When I had that conversation, I came out of the room, I was shocked. I felt that he insisted that I met with a person who was to act as an intermediary. He was very insistent” Mathieu said
The blacmaillers had threatened to release a sex tape of Mathieu Valbuena unless he paid off. Benzema had encouraged Mathieu to make payment to the blacmaillers.

He later told authorities of the incident instead of meeting with the blacmaillers to pay the money, which led to Benzema’s suspension from the national team.
