First it was John Travolta and now David Letterman has found himself in the middle of an extortion plot. And the details aren't pretty!
Letterman received a package in the mail from a con artist who threatened to expose a string of affairs that Letterman allegedly had with different female staff members, reports the New York Daily News.
"This morning, I did something I've never done in my life," Letterman told his stunned audience during a taping on Thursday.
"I had to go downtown and testify before a grand jury."
Letterman admitted to having a string of affairs with women who work for him.
The con artist demanded $2 million dollars from Letterman, but Letterman didn't budge and instead he notified the Manhattan District Attorney's office.
The District Attorney's office had Letterman send the con artist a phony $2 million dollar check--which led to his arrest this afternoon.
Letterman married Regina Lasko seven months ago after dating for over 23 years. They have a five-year-old son together. More details coming soon!
