Fresh Scandal: Franck Ribery Reportedly Involved in Underage Prostitution Ring

Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery has become embroiled in yet another prostitution scandal, five years after the infamous Zahia affair which prompted worldwide controversy at the time, report French media outlet ​Closer.

The former Marseilles star was cleared of all wrongdoing by the French courts on the 26th of November 2014, but the winger was recalled for questioning following fresh reports of a new scandal, with the French anti- prostitution brigade (BRP) calling Ribery in following reports of his involvement in an international prostitution scandal, which reportedly involves an underage escort.


The events are said to have taken place in Paris, France, with Ribery said to have paid a friend to bring 10 escorts to a late night party.

Ribery is also reported to have handed his friend an envelope with €15k to bring the several high end escorts to the aforementioned event.

However, the friend in question allegedly handed each escort €500, meaning he kept €10k for himself. Bristling at this, the disgruntled escorts chose to speak to the media after missing out on what they were owed.

In addition to the already controversial affair, the events are said to have included an underage escort, with reports claiming a 17-year-old prostitute was involved in the night in question.

Consequently, Ribery was called in for questioning following these fresh allegations, but was subsequently released on the evening of the 26th of November 2015.

Ribery was, however, subjected to extensive questioning and the BRP are in the process of further investigation.

This is yet another event that adds to the black cloud currently polluting French football, given the recent terror attacks at the Stade de France last month and Karim Benzema’s ongoing sex scandal involving compatriot Mathieu Valbuena.
