Franck Ribery & Karim Benzema: See You In Court!

What nicely manicured, green shrubbery Clairefontaine, France has. Image taken: 13.08.2012.

Today’s soapbox speech is brought to you by the number four.

1. A bit of BG: originally the France international colleagues had only been formally accused. But as of yesterday, the duo was formally charged with soliciting a minor for sex. Franck has already admitted to having sex with the prosti, while Karim vaguely responded to Miss Dehar’s story by saying he was “not affected” by it or her claims. Not confirmed – yet – but will surely come out sooner or later is whether either player knew that Zahia was 16-years-old at the time of their respective romps.

2. But really, what we want to know is what Mrs Ribery has had to say about all this (behind closed doors since she ain’t saying it publicly)? Not sure about you, Kickettes, but if we had two kids by a man who’s often considered to be one of world football’s ugliest players, we’d be full steam ahead on engaging divorce lawyers in a bidding war.

3. Also annoying: you’re going to be a ‘player’, for God’s sake at least play legally and don’t get busted.

4. Ugh, Karim. We know. You’re a 24-year-old gazillionaire and on top of the world and we shouldn’t place burdensome expectations on you. But still. Your once illustrious shine is beginning to wear a tad thin on our mantle.

Or perhaps we’ve said too much.

    Karim is as thick as a whale omelette. Sorry but there's nothing going on in his head at all. As for Mrs Ribery not divorcing, come on, have you seen her? Frank may be ugly but he's rich and famous and some dumb broad will sleep with him for that. NO ONE in their right mind would boff Mrs R.

  2. Not to condone adultery but I can understand Franck paying for the box(I mean it's amazing he's not a virgin). But Karim should be able to charm a cute girl back to the hotel. this whole ordeal could have been avoided…

    SMFH…damn Karim. I'm can't be bothered to give out a single f*ck about Frank, but UGH KARIM WHY!? OUT OF ALL THE VAGINAS IN THE WORLD IT HAD TO BE THIS ONE?!?!? But I also thought that it was Karim's agent or something that had sex with her and not Karim. Idk, idk, this is all making me sad and angry.

    • xxxo says:

      well…I dont exactlyknow for what reasons, but I believe Benz, when he says he hasnt been involved.

    • Rosie says:

      I realize that Zahia is not exactly what most of us would consider classy, but can we please refer to women as human beings instead of sex organs? The mainstream media, politicians, etc. are still treating us as nothing more than objectification material or incubators – and that's in the so-called "developed" countries. Can we please not do that to one another? Even if it is on a just-for-fun website, this type of disrespect is disheartening, and more importantly, it perpetuates a dangerous attitude that only hurts us all.

      I'm stepping off the soapbox.

      If I'm preachy on this subject, I blame my state's crazy-ass politicians.

  4. Agnes Wonka says:

    I feel sorry for Karim, but only because I like him….

  5. OhDear says:

    So we should expect a photo op of the Riberys in a show of family togetherness soon? That being said, it doesn't seem like it's the first time he's cheated on her; it's just that previous times were likely not made public.

    Other thoughts:
    1) Maybe Ms. Ribery feels that it would be better for the kids and/or that it's better financially to stay with FR, or she's forgiven him for the affair. People stay with cheaters for many reasons.

    2) The whole "she (Zahia) was a birthday present to myself" line is disgusting.

    3) Can't speak to KB's involvement in this mess, except that I don't see him being as bad as FR here (KB was 19 or 20 when this happened, presumably wasn't cheating on anyone).

  6. Danielle says:

    Nothing to do with this story – But what happened to that TV programme that used to do a Kickette section? You posted a few vids a while back and haven't seen any since?

  7. Kristina says:

    I don't pretend to be an expert, but according to Swedish law if you commit a crime it doesn't matter if you knew it was illegal or not, you can still be sentenced. So I don't know if it matters if they knew her age or not. As I said, I don't know if that applies when it comes to these kind of crimes.

    Still, very ugly business. Especially when it comes to Ribery with his wife and kids (I would never forgive), but also when it comes to Benzema. What goes on in your head when you buy another person? Shame on them!

  8. Loninha - Brasil says:

    I am saddened by this situation of Franck Ribery, as his wife did not deserve such treatment from him, she married him had children, even when all the world, despresava because of his scars, and yet he did this to her! Now Benzema be damned!

    • Lia says:

      I might be wrong with this response to you, but i think his wife is Moslem and so is he. My point here is men are not require to be monogamous, that woman is not sitting around crying. Its not his first it will never be his last. Keep your sadness for somthing else.

      • sofia says:

        you are wrong. you have no idea about islam.

        • Lia says:

          Kristina, if you're a pologamist there is no such thing as cheating. How can you be a pologamist and cheat at the same time? doesn't poly= many?

          Sofia, if I' am wrong and its your religion am so sorry.

          • Kristina says:

            lol, if you are a polygamist you are married to more than one woman. Married. So, of course a polygamist can be unfaithful. It's just that when he is unfaithful he is unfaithful to his wifes, not his wife. But he is not unfaithful to his wifes if he sleep with a woman who is also his wife. Confusing I know, but that's how it is.

            • Lia says:

              Well to me cheating is only confine to monogamy. Most polygamist don't wait for marriage before sleeping or dating their 2nd, 3rd, 4th,5th,6th wife. How can 'many'have limits?

      • Kristina says:

        You can't generalize like that. In some muslim, as well as in christian, sects they practice polygamy, but it's not the way of the majority in any of the religions.

        • Jayy says:

          Why has this comment been thumbed down? Spot on Kristina. As a Muslim, I can safely say that the majority of Muslim men do not practice polygamy.

      • Kristina says:

        And, even if you do practice polygamy, you are still cheating your wife(s) if you sleep with a woman that is not your wife.

    I've never been a Benz Fangirl though I respect his talent, but after this I never will be. Ugh.

  10. PhilippaB says:

    On the 'he said / she said' thing – she seems to have told the prosecutors that they didn't know she wasn't 18. And the prosecutors wanted to drop it, for that reason, but the judge has over-ruled them. All very unedifying. Bleah.

  11. Americus Killaponius says:

    "if we had two kids by a man who’s often considered to be one of world football’s ugliest players, we’d be full steam ahead on engaging divorce lawyers in a bidding war."

    Ahahahahaha the truth behind this statement is killing me lol.

  12. Claudia says:

    Mrs Ribery was mad but seems to have forgiven him as they've had a son quite a while after this all came out. So they now have three kids ;) And honestly, I think Wayne Rooney is less attractive than Franck Ribery… >_>
