Zahia Dehar, the prostitute who is at centre of a storm in France for sleeping with three top French footballers, has admitted that she lied about her age, and doesn’t think that any of them should be prosecuted.
Franck Ribery (who has been linked with a move to Chelsea this summer), Sidney Govou and Karim Benzema are alleged to have paid to sleep with the wannabe model, and it has been claimed that Ribery flew the young French Moroccan to a hotel in Germany last year, when she was legally underage.
Miss Dehar told police: “I slept with the men, but I wasn’t truthful about my age.”
“I loved them all. They treated me with utter respect and should be left alone. They spoiled me, and looked after me. They were my men.”
She has been helping the police with their enquiries, but is not expected to face any charges herself, and has spoken openly to the press. She also released some sexy photos which she hopes will help her in her desire to become a top model.
Prostitution is not so frowned upon in liberal France, and Ribery’s wife has already agreed that she will stand by her husband during this ordeal and will be going to the Champions League tie against Lyon this week as usual.
I wouldn’t have believed her if she had told me she was only 17!
