Here is all you need to know about Zahia Dehar, the French model and former s*x worker who was once linked with Karim Benzema with her accusing him of r*pe when she was aged 15

Football fans are well aware of the case which linked Karim Benzema and Zahia Dehar.

Back in 2014, the French judge decided that there wasn’t enough evidence to conclude that Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema and Bayern Munich winger Ribéry knew Zahia Dehar, the escort girl, was underage when the occurrences occurred.

Even though the affair brought Dehar, then 21 years old, international attention, she chose not to sue the two football professionals in a civil capacity.

Ribéry acknowledged having s*x with Dehar, but he insisted he didn’t pay and didn’t know she was underage or a pr*stitute. Benzema has refuted every accusation and denied r*ping her when she was 15.

Investigations by the Brigade de répression du proxénétisme into the activities of Abousofiane Moustaid, popularly known as “Abou Sofiane,” a former Nouvelle Star candidate who currently hosts a celebrity show on the TNT channel, led to the case’s first discovery.

Zahia later started modelling and became successful. Twelve pages honouring Brigitte Bardot were published in February 2011 in the American and Spanish versions of V Magazine. Several of the images featured were taken in New York, signalling Dehar’s comeback to the public eye. A website was formally launched on March 1, 2011, to promote her modelling.

“Iced” (“Givre”), “Cake and Candy” (“Gateau et Bonbon”), and “Love” (“Amour”) are some of her lingerie lines.
