Uh-oh, tennis champion and model Maria Sharapova has apparently gotten herself into quite the pickle. Reports say that the successful 30-year-old athlete is being charged for her involvement in a luxury housing scheme deemed by Delhi police as “cheating and criminal”.
If convicted the Russian tennis star could face “a seven-year prison sentence and a fine under Section 420 of the Indian Penal Code.” Unilad
Officials spoke of the model/athlete’s involvement in criminal activities;
“The tennis star has now been booked for cheating and criminal conspiracy by Delhi Police, following a local court’s order. An aggrieved homebuyer had approached the court.
The developers of the project have also been booked under similar charges. However, no one has been arrested in the case yet.”
According to Times Of India, Sharapova advertised and attached her name to the luxury home development which was highly publicised and promised to be completed by 2016.
However, the project never took off.
Hmm. Tricky, tricky.
