Whoa. This is kind of crazy.
It was only back in July that Real Madrid soccer star Karim Benzema was linked to Rihanna…
And now he's reportedly under arrest!

The 27-year-old Frenchman, who also plays for the French national team, was taken in for questioning on Wednesday in regards to his connection in the extortion attempt of his teammate's sex tape.
According to reports, the investigation behind Mathieu Valbuena's tape began in July in Versailles, France, and involves footage shot on a cell phone.
Though it was only last month that Karim and Mathieu supposedly had a conversation about the sex tape, which has investigators trying to figure out whether it was part of the alleged blackmail plot.
If RiRi's former flame is convicted, he could face up to five years in French prison for blackmail.
Yikes. Hopefully Karim has nothing to worry about it, but only time will tell!
