Cindy Crawford's Alleged Extortionist

11/12/2009 9:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

We've just obtained pictures of Edis Kayalar, Cindy Crawford's alleged extortionist -- below are the mug shots and a gallery of modeling pics we've obtained.


There are two booking photos -- the one on the left is from the feds, and the other is from the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.

Kayalar was a model for HERMAEVENTS, a German company (see pics below).

Federal authorities say Kayalar was arrested and deported to his home country of Germany after allegedly trying to pry money from Cindy and Rande Gerber for a picture their former nanny took -- a picture of the couple's 7-year-old daughter bound to a chair and gagged.

Authorities say the nanny took the pic as a prank and Cindy didn't know anything about it.

As we said earlier, a man who appears to be Kayalar contacted TMZ approximately 6 weeks ago trying to sell the photo. He said he had been in a relationship with the nanny and found the photo in her room and became concerned she might be abusing the child.

Kayalar said he had taken the photo from the nanny's room and wanted to know if he could get in trouble for selling it. We offered him no advice and passed on his offer.

Kayalar has been charged with one count extortion -- he faces two years in the slammer.

In case you people didn't know it, Cindy is an idiot and the cheapest (b list, or c list)celeb. on the planet. She needs to focus on her kids instead of "attempting" to make more money...

Cindy Crawford and her husband didn't have nanny cam?

That their daughter didn't tell her parents about the picture makes me believe that Cindy and her husband didn't have good communication with their her.

The poor girl has been abused and felt she couldn't tell anyone what this disgusting nanny made her do. I'm guessing the nanny threatened the little girl.

I actually think Kate Gosselin protects her children better than Cindy and her hubby. And we all know Kate exploits her kids.

Cindy - get your daughter some help and stay home with her and stop paying others to take care of your children!

If he wasn't such a drunk woman beater I would do some naughty things with him and date him. The nanny is a sick female dog for binding and gagging a seven year old girl and then he takes the picture of the innocent minor. I would bind and gag the both of them and whip the hell out of their naked bodies. What's next child molestation and masturbation? LOL he plucked his eyebrows? He's a hot, attractive, sexy son of a biatch.

If the nanny the photographer are gonna play that naughty game of tieing up a person and gagging them and than snapping a picture of them, than they should play that naughty game together and not with a seven year old daughter of Cindy. Let's hope the both of them get their buttocks raped in jail. He should stick to modeling for more money and the parents need to research and find better nannies that they can be of assurance. It's not a pornography and crime shoot, it's babysitting and parental responsibilities.
