(Daily Mail) – An attempt to blackmail an NHL great about a photo of him in bed next to an 18-year-old model who wasn’t even born when he won his first Stanley Cup has led his fans to create Instagram memes.
Jaromir Jagr, 43, was captured on camera in bed next to an 18-year-old from the Czech Republic when she took a selfie of them snuggled up under the covers while he dozed in the background.
The model, who has been identified as Catherine from Moravia, flashed the peace sign and puckered up for the camera when she took the picture and then tried to use it against Jagr.
The woman, or someone close to her, threatened to publish it unless the NHL legend was willing to hand over 50,000 Czech crowns [about $2,000 US currency], according to Czech outlet Blesk.
The translation via BroBible reads: ‘An 18-year old model tried to blackmail Jaromir Jagr by asking for 50,000 Czech Koruna’s or she would publish a picture of the pair taken directly after the two engaged in sexual intercourse.
‘Jagr responded by saying ‘I don’t care,’ and she published the photo.
‘The girl ended up being the girlfriend of Czech National Junior Team defenseman Dominik Rudl.’
After the photo posted on social media, Jagr fans began creating their own versions of themselves puckering up and flashing the peace sign next to humans, stuffed animals, pets and even liquor bottles.
Jagr has not offered up a response, but it’s a safe bet he doesn’t care about those versions either.
The leading point scorer among all active NHL players has laced up his skates as a member of eight teams and won consecutive Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1991 and 1992.
He now plays right wing for the Florida Panthers.
Catherine’s boyfriend Rudl, who was born in 1996, calls Jagr his idol, Puck Daddy reported.
