Cindy Crawford’s rep has issued a statement on behalf of the former supermodel in response to the sentencing of a German man accused of blackmailing her with photos of her 7-year-old daughter. In an emailed statement to EW, a publicist for Crawford said: “We want to express our gratitude to the FBI, the U.S. District Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles, and the German Law Enforcement Authorities for their coordination and efforts in this case, which resulted in the successful prosecution and incarceration of the perpetrator.” Edis Kayalar was given two years in a German prison for extortion. He is accused of stealing a private photo of Crawford’s daughter, gagged and bound to a chair, from the child’s nanny. The nanny has said the photo was taken in jest.
