David Beckham and Danny Cipriani: you can’t be victim if you’re famous

Is it a crime to be famous? This week, two stories about blackmail have occupied the Sun’s front page.

The first is the matter of messages hacked from a server that handles David Beckham’s emails. The hackers wanted money to make the ‘leaks’ go away. The company being targeted complained and the emails were delivered to a site that specialises in ‘leaked’ material.

In a few emails, David Beckham allegedly uses industrial language to complain about his lack of a knighthood. He comes out of it badly. But he’s the victim, right? We love the chatter and the details, but surely we can agree that he’s a victim of an apparent crime?

We love to learn that Beckham obtained a high court injunction in December 2016 blocking the emails’ publication in the Sunday Times – a waste of money and effort given that overseas organs published the stuff online. One Romanian outlet detailed Beckham’s ‘angry pursuit of a knighthood’, which included, as the Guardian notes, the former footballer allegedly calling the gong-givers “a bunch of cunts” after he was overlooked for the honour.

It’s all a good read. We can an insight into Beckham’s non-choreographed activities. But he’s the victim.

The second story is on Danny Cipriani, a rugby player. He was blackmailed by a stripper he impregnated. The story goes that he agreed to give her some money for a termination but then failed to cough up. Lisa Murphy, for it is she, had the abortion. When she was forced to miss work, due to health complications, she asked him for money, which again he did not pay. Murphy and her colleague, Violet Smith, 29, then threatened to go to the papers with the story, namely to The Sun on Sunday. Cipriani called the police.

And how does the Sun cover the story?

In the celebrity Petri Dish with Kelly Brook, Cheslea’s Ashley Cole, Danny Cipirani and Katie Price fan Jemma Henley

article-2050457-0E6D3C6E00000578-686_468x702READERS may recall the name Jemma Henley from the Daily Mail’s story “Ashley Cole’s ‘three-month affair’ with a contestant on Katie Price’s model show”.

The mother-of-three has said of her protegee: ‘She has fierce model written all over her.”

Well, you pick your surgeons and tattoo artists and you take your chances.

You may also recall her Jemma from a 2005 TV about  US Brat Camps and this 2011 report in the Oxford Mail:

A FORMER wild child teenager whose behaviour shocked TV viewers has marked turning her life around by getting a tattoo of her idol… the 22-year-old, who was expelled from five schools but has since posed for Nuts, Zoo, Maxim and Loaded, has had a full-length portrait of Jordan tattooed on her right arm.

Katie Price, Danny Cipriani Are Pranny: An OK! Love Story

“WHEN Katie Price has Leandro Penna’s name inked on her ankle earlier this year, it seems she’d finally found love.” So writes OK! editor Lisa Byrne.

“But last week Katie confirmed they had split and just days later she was snapped leaving the house of a pal of rugby heart-throb Danny Cipriani. So what exactly is going in her love life.”

Well, we’d guess she had been over to see a pal of rugby heart-throb Danny Cipriani to talk about God and the end of the world being nigh?

OK! has other ideas and thunders on its cover:

“KATIE LOVES DANNY – the first interview since going public. Their secret’s out!”
