Novak Djokovic has survived a honey trap from a Serbian model Natalija Scekic who claimed that she was offered 60,000 Euros which is equivalent to Rs.52 lakhs. In an interview published in Serbian magazine Svet & Scandal, Scekic revealed that the plot, set up by an unnamed Brit, was meant to ruin Djokovic’s marriage and tarnish his image.
“It is true that a guy contacted me. I know him from the city of London and I considered him a serious guy,” Scekic claims. “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.”
The plan was to set her up with Djokovic. Then it would have been Scekic’s job to try and seduce the 18-time Grand Slam champion whilst secretly filming the act. “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,” she continued. “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.” “At that moment I thought of hitting him, throwing water on him, but I restrained myself because we were in a public place,” she stated. “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.” Scekic had dodged his request and did not partake in this honey trap to seduce Djokovic and she is in great awe of the tennis star.
Djokovic, who married his high-school sweetheart Jelena Ristic in 2014, is currently ranked No 1 in the world and holds 18 Grand Slam titles.
