BF gave his Syrian ex-girlfriend’s sex tape to her family to blackmail her into taking him back – and her father and younger brother both watch the video

A 19-year-old man provided a sex tape of his ex-girlfriend to her family in an attempt to blackmail her into staying in a relationship with him.

After his relationship with the woman dissolved, he put a USB containing the tape into her letterbox, along with a note threatening to release the video to the wider Syrian community if she did not resume being his girlfriend.

He also sent an explicit image of the woman to her new partner, The Advertiser reported.

The man pleaded guilty in an Adelaide court on Monday to blackmail and distributing an invasive image.
