Model Tries To Extort Jaromir Jagr Over Photo. He Doesn't Care; Starts Selfie Trend [PHOTO]

Sure, it come with lots of perks, but being a professional athlete can be tough. As one example, people are always trying to take advantage of you -- and that is exactly what happened to Jaromir Jagr.

The 43-year-old Jagr was photographed sleeping next to a 18-year-old model who later tried to extort him for $2,000 according to a Czech tabloid.

I don't know about you but I can't read Russian but the fine people at were kind enough to translate for us.

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 defenceman Dominik Rudl.

The fact that Jagr just "doesn't care" is amazing to me. Having said that, would $2,000 have been that much to stop her from posting the photo? I guess it is a principle thing.

It also goes to show any photo can be turned into a meme now.
