Cindy Crawford is the Latest Victim in an Extortion Plot

Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber are the latest celebrities to fall victim to an extortion plot.

The couple’s former nanny allegedly took a photo of their 7-year-old daughter Kaia bound and gagged to a chair and passed the photo onto to suspect Edis Kayalar.

Kayalar attempted to extort $100,000 from the couple and repeatedly threatened to sell or release the photograph to the media if they failed to pay.

In a statement, Cindy's spokeswoman Annett Wolf said: "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."

According to court documents, Kaia told her parents the photo was taken during a “cops and robbers” game with the nanny.

Needless to say, the couple wasn't too thrilled with the nanny. She's been deported back to Germany and if convicted of extortion, faces up to two years in prison.

How sick do you have to be to do that to a child?! We really hope this guy gets convicted and the judge throws the book at him--and the nanny too. How disturbing!
