The teenage call girl accused of sleeping with at least three French football stars when she was underage today broke her silence over the scandal announcing: ‘I loved them all’.
Zahia Dehar, now 18, said she was ‘shocked’ that the players were facing up to three years in prison for the crime.
She said that Franck Ribery, 27, Karim Benzema, 22, and Sidney Govou, 30, had all treated her ‘with utter respect’ and should be left alone.
It came as provocative pictures of the would-be model were released in Paris.
Ribery, believed to be a £40 million target for Chelsea, flew the young French Moroccan to a hotel in Germany, where he is currently a winger for Bayern Munich, last Spring.
He is then said by police to have paid her up to £2,000 for sex – something he continued to do back in France.
Miss Dehar was one of 18 girls quizzed during a police raid on the Café Zaman, a notorious brothel on the Champs Elysee, last week.
She has told vice squad officers that she had £2,000-a-night sex with all three players.
Prostitution is legal in France, but those selling sex must be over 18.
Miss Dehar, who lives in Paris, even celebrated her 18th birthday with Ribery – many months after their relationship started.
Ribery – who was sent off for a horror tackle last night playing in the Champions League semi-final against Lyon – told examining magistrates that he ‘saw the girl over a number of months in 2009’.
