“It is with a heavy heart that I come to you to tell you that I have a blackmailer on my team who is claiming to have a copy of probably nude video of me. And for three days now he has been threatening to go online if I don’t give him something.
“I am not one that will give in to blackmail, I have told him to go ahead. I have already spoken to a couple of friends and I want to thank them for giving me words of encouragement, my wife, my family already I told them when this happened so please I just want to let you know. In my line of work anytime can happen, if my omission you happen to get my nude and then you are now saying you want money with it, I don’t think it will happen with me,” he said.
