A Serbian model claims she was offered more than $70,000 during a London business meeting to seduce world No. 1 tennis player Novak Djokovic and capture the encounter on video in order to ruin the 33-year-old’s marriage and reputation.
Natalija Scekic told Svet&Scandal magazine a man she considered to be a “serious guy” asked her to use a hidden camera to make a secret sex tape with Djokovic that could then be used as leverage in an extortion plot.
“I thought it was a hidden camera when he told me that I had to seduce Novak and film it, but not to worry about that because he was already taking care of that,” Scekic said. “He told me I could get about 60,000 euros for that and a trip wherever I wanted. I laughed, expecting him to say it was a joke, but the man was very serious. I felt very offended and humiliated. I gathered my things and left. I hope he didn’t find a girl who wants to do that, because it’s not fair to Novak. He is our best ambassador, an exemplary man, a family man. For someone to seduce him like that for money, or at least try to …”
According to Scekic, she is sharing her story publicly in order to prevent another woman from going forward with the plot and damaging Djokovic’s relationship with his wife Jelena. They have been married since 2014 and have two children together — Stefan, six, and Tara, three.
“I understand that it is more interesting for people to read Nole and Jelena are getting divorced than Nole and Jelena are in love,” Djokovic said about allegations of infidelity last year, according to The Sun. “But that doesn’t affect Jelena and me because we love each other.”
Last week, Novak Djokovic joined Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer in pulling out of the Miami Open due to coronavirus restrictions.
Djokovic won his 18th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open last month and recently broke Federer’s record of 310 total weeks ranked as the world’s top player.
“I decided to use this precious time at home to stay with my family,” Djokovic said. “With all restrictions, I need to find balance in my time on tour and at home.”
