Former darts champ questioned over nude photos sent to teen
Former darts world champion Jelle Klaasen has been accused of sending nude photos a 15-year-old girl via Twitter amnd email.
Former darts world champion Jelle Klaasen was questioned by police Tuesday after apparently sending nude photos of himself to a 15-year-old girl via Twitter and email.
According to Dutch newspaper Omroep Brabant, Klaasen conversed with the girl, who suffers mental health problems, via direct messages and sent photos of himself in states of undress. He had apparently known her family for years, and a teacher found the photos on the girl’s phone.
Klaasen, 27, made a statement Tuesday, in which he revealed he had been interrogated by police and apologized for his actions. He added that he will soon learn whether he is to be prosecuted.
Users of various darts forums suggested that Klaasen’s career is over. Some of Klaasen’s rivals have criticized him on Twitter, including Steve West, who accused Klaasen of making moves on his wife and called him a “filthy paedo.” West’s brother, Tony, also slammed Klaasen in a tweet that’s not suitable for print.
