This is just off the wire. Famous talk show host and comedian David Letterman dropped a personal b0mb today during the taping of CBS Late Show on Thursday night. Letterman said that he was a victim of a 2 million dollars extortion attempt.
Why somebody was trying to extort money from David Letterman? Because David had relations with a member of the staff of his production team and the extortionist came to know about it. The person trying to black mail David Letterman wanted to be paid $2 millions to remain quiet.
I think David Letterman did the right thing by reporting it to the cops. First of all being married and all and just having the baby, David Letterman should not have gotten himself into a relationship with somebody on his team. Now that he did, its good he did not fall for the extortion attempt. Had he paid the money, the black mailer would have never stopped.
After contacting cops, David Letterman was told to pay the extortionist a fake check. Thats how the cops caught the perpetrator.
As of going live, the name of the extortionist or the lady on the staff with whom David Letterman had relationship are not known.
Do you or do you know somebody who works on David Letterman’s team? Do you have any inside information on this?
