A MODEL has revealed she was offered £50,000 to secretly film herself seducing Novak Djokovic in a plot to blackmail the married tennis ace.
Serbian stunner Natalija Scekic was even offered the holiday of a lifetime if she agreed to lure the world No1 into a hidden-camera fling as part of the extortion scam.

Speaking to Marca, she said: “It is true that a guy contacted me. I know him from (London) and I considered him a serious guy.
“I am familiar with their work and they were good. When he asked me for a date, I thought it was for a business matter.
“However, as the conversation progressed, I saw that it had nothing to do with my life.
“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.
“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.
“They were really preparing a hell of a plan. I was told to take Novak somewhere to an intimate place and film it all.”
Djokovic, 33, has been married to wife Jelena for seven years and the couple have two children – Stefan, six, and Tara, three.
The 18-time Grand Slam winner has frequently been forced to deny claims that he has cheated on her.

And Natalija, who has 13,000 Instagram followers, has revealed that she wanted no part in setting up her fellow Serb in a love-cheat plot.
Explaining how she reacted to the offer, she added: “At that moment I thought of hitting him, throwing water on him, but I restrained myself because we were in a public place.
“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…”
That poor run continued in the first half of 2018, before he recovered to win Wimbledon and the US Open.
However, Jelena was absent for his Wimbledon triumph and that sparked rumours that the couple were struggling.
When asked about what caused the drop off in his performance, Djokovic said: “It was nothing physical. It was some other things that I was going through privately.”
When quizzed on allegations of infidelity in 2020, Djokovic once again categorically shut them down.
He said: “I understand that it is more interesting for people to read Nole and Jelena are getting divorced than Nole and Jelena are in love.
“But that doesn’t affect Jelena and me because we love each other.”
