Karim supposedly extorted a teammate over his sex tape.

Well that's gonna put some tension on this team!

Real Madrid soccer star Karim Benzema was charged on Thursday for allegedly blackmailing his teammate on the France National Team over a sex tape.

Rihanna's former flame was brought in for questioning on Wednesday regarding his involvement in extorting fellow footballer Mathieu Valbuena with his intimate video.

A Versailles judge charged the athlete with conspiracy to blackmail and participating in a criminal group. The 27-year-old supposedly offered to keep Mathieu's "incriminating" flick from leaking to the public, but apparently insisted on being paid to keep quiet.

The teammates reportedly discussed the filthy film during a team meeting last month. An investigation is attempting to discover whether or not that exchange involved Karim blackmailing the 31-year-old.

The France native was released from jail after being charged, provided that he doesn't speak to anyone else involved in the case.

So, regarding games for the France National Team, neither Karim nor Mathieu are allowed to participate together until the case is closed.
