Cindy Crawford Thanks FBI for Nabbing Blackmailer

Originally posted 03/10/2010 03:00PM

A would-be blackmailer accused of targeting Cindy Crawford and husband Rande Gerber in an unsuccessful extortion plot has been sentenced by a German court to two years behind bars.

Edis Kayalar, 26, was convicted of threatening to sell what he called a "sexy" photo of the couple's then-7-year-old daughter tied to a chair with a gag in her mouth. The child apparently was playing when the photo was taken, according to authorities.

In a statement Wednesday, Crawford and Gerber said, "We want to express our gratitude to the FBI, the U.S. District Attorney's Office in Los Angeles and the German law-enforcement authorities for their coordination and efforts in this case."

INSIDE STORY: How Celebs Thwart Their Blackmailers

In an industry where privacy is hard to come by, celebrities prefer to keep their dirty laundry behind closed doors. But a recent string of extortion plots against Hollywood players has them coming out swinging – no matter the risks of humiliation or hardship.

Larry Stein, an attorney who represented actor Rob Lowe and his wife in an alleged extortion plot by their former nannies, says, in fact, more celebrities are willing to face down their blackmailers.

"Celebrities have to let people know that they’re not going to be extorted, or that they’re not going to be threatened," Stein says. "It’s important to distance yourselves from these people and tell them you’re not going to be bullied by them … People are prepared to stand up to it now."

Accused Cindy Crawford Blackmailer Surrenders

The former male model whom police allege tried to blackmail Cindy Crawford of $100,000 has turned himself in to police in his native Germany.

According to authorities, Edis "Eddie" Kayalar, 26, obtained a photograph of Crawford and husband Rande Gerber's then-7-year-old daughter tied to a chair in revealing clothing, taken by her nanny during a game of cops and robbers. Kayalar then allegedly tried to parlay the photo into a payout from the celebrity couple – lest he give the photo to the media. He was charged last week with one count of extortion despite having already been deported to Germany, where he allegedly continued to try blackmailing the couple.

On Monday, Kalayar went to a Stuttgart police station and surrendered himself, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Cindy Crawford and her entrepreneur husband Rande Gerber were the victims of a $100,000 extortion scheme involving a photograph of their 7-year-old daughter purportedly taken by the couple's former nanny, according to court papers filed Thursday by the FBI and the U.S. attorney's office.

The photo shows the child "in revealing clothing, bound to a chair and gagged," say the documents filed in U.S. District Court, reports Los Angeles TV station KTLA.

According to an affidavit in the case, the child informed the Gerbers that the nanny took the photo as part of a "cops and robbers" game. Annett Wolf, a rep for the former supermodel, issued a statement saying the photo was taken without Crawford's knowledge.

It's hard to age gracefully as a supermodel. But at 43, Cindy Crawford has her coping strategies firmly in place – a mixture of acceptance and defiance.

"I have cellulite. I admit it," the legendary cover model says with a laugh in the September issue of Redbook, on sale Tuesday.

But if you think she's going to hide herself away as a result, forget it. "Sometimes I just say, 'Screw it, I am going to wear a bikini,' " she says.
