    Documents say Cindy Crawford extortion target

    Nanny’s acquaintance allegedly threatened to sell photo of bound child

    LOS ANGELES - A German man was charged Thursday with trying to extort $100,000 from former supermodel Cindy Crawford and her entrepreneur husband Rande Gerber over a photo of their daughter bound to a chair and gagged, authorities said.

    Edis Kayalar, 26, has not yet been arrested. He was recently deported to Germany and believed to be in Stuttgart, authorities said.

    He was charged with one count of extortion. If convicted, he could face up to two years in prison. It was not clear if he has an attorney in the U.S.

    The photo was purportedly taken by the couple's former nanny and shows the girl, then 7, bound to a chair wearing shorts and a T-shirt.

    The daughter told her parents, who were unaware of the photo, that the nanny took the picture as part of a "cops and robbers" game, according to an affidavit filed in the case.

    The nanny, whose name wasn't released, has not been charged.

    Kayalar allegedly took the photo from the nanny and repeatedly sought to get money from Crawford and Gerber, court documents said.

    Kayalar threatened to sell or release the photo to the media if his demands weren't met, the affidavit said.

    Crawford's spokeswoman Annett Wolf issued a statement saying, "Rande Gerber and Cindy Crawford intend to pursue any and all available legal action against anyone who aids the perpetrator in the distribution or sale of the photograph of their daughter."

    Crawford, who divorced actor Richard Gere in 1995, married Gerber in 1998. They have two children.

    Absolutely they were in cahoots together. What kind of a nanny bounds and gags a child as a prank? That poor little girl. I love that their plan backfired and at the very least he's looking at 2 years in the slammer.

    Default Cindy Crawford almost extorted for pictures of her daughter bound and gagged


    Former supermodel Cindy Crawford went to the cops after a creepy German model named Kayalar tried to extort $100,000 from her in exchange for pictures he had of Cindy’s 7-year-old daughter Kaia “in revealing clothing, bound to a chair and gagged.”
    The photograph is said to be stolen from Crawford’s former nanny who had been dating Kayalar. The nanny claims it was taken during a game of cops and robbers.
    Kayalar said he saw the picture once at her apartment, an FBI affidavit says. The nanny told him it was Crawford’s daughter and boasted, “Do you know how much this picture is worth?”
    According to Kayalar, he took the photograph along with a hand-written note that said, “The babysitter went crazy & tied everyone up& they need your help! Please.” (It’s the note she would have used as part of the prank).
    Initially, Kayalar claimed he was broke and asked for a reward for returning the photo. Naturally, Cindy told the cops and the they picked up Kayalar and sent him to immigration who threw him out of the country. It didn’t stop there though, Kayalar is now trying to blackmail Crawford again by threatening to sell the pictures to tabloids if $100,000 isn’t wired to his German bank account. No money has been wired and the FBI is still searching for him.

    WTF? Who really bounds and gags a kid during cops and robbers? That part should be acted out at the most, or skipped completely.

    When I was a kid cowboys and indians were great fun. With the totempole we tied each other to when got captured. Sadly we didn't have a digital camera and developing cost a lot otherwise we would have lots of pics.

    Oh, sorry, I don't live in the creepy, oversensitive puritan world that reads monstrosity into everything because of the effeing media hype.
    sure some kids are abused but not every. If Cindy doesn't have a problem with it (except for someone trying to blackmail her) why do you? Or did I miss something? Does she think her daughter is a victim? Or she is a creepy fuck as well, who's actually a paedophile?

    Revealing clothes... yeah, I guess she's in her PJs.
