British socialite-turned-Tv star Tamara Ecclestone has complained to police after allegedly receiving blackmail threats.
The daughter of billionaire Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone reached out to cops on Monday (05Dec11) after she received correspondence from a would-be extortionist, who allegedly threatened to release personal information about the 27 year old.
She has been questioned by police officers, who have now launched a blackmail investigation.
A spokesman for London's Metropolitan Police says, "We received a complaint regarding an inappropriate communication relating to the release of personal information. The allegation is being investigated as blackmail."
