New Zealand Warriors Player Konrad Hurrell was reportedly involved in a sex scandal which has taken the country's sports arena by storm.
The Integrity Unit of the National Rugby League (NRL) has started investigating the alleged involvement of the rugby star with TV actress Teuila Blakely. The sex tape was "discovered" on the net on May 4.
The sex tape was apparently watched by only a few hundred, most of them being teenagers. The video was soon taken down.
Fox Sports reported one of Hurrell's friends was suspected to have uploaded the video with no permission from the people involved in it. It was The Courier-Mail that broke the news for the first time. The video has been found on a page on Instagram named after a TV celebrity from New Zealand.
Blakely was quick to admit that the video, which was recorded a couple of months back, featured her along with Hurrell. The 39-year-old Kiwi TV star has a 22-year-old son, which Hurrell is also of the same age.
The actress was seen performing a sexual act on Hurrell while he was driving a car. "Yeah it was me," Blakely said. She said it was a private video between her and "Koni," which she fondly calls Hurrell.
She added that it was "a tape between two people who have a lot of fun together." Blakely said she was not Kim Kardashian.
NRL COO Jim Doyle confirmed the alleged matter was under investigation.
"All I am going to say is that I am aware of it," Doyle said.
He added they were "made aware" that there was "something there" but they were "following up on it" presently.
Wayne Scurrah, Chief Executive of the Warriors, said the Warriors would like to "establish facts first" in relation with the alleged involvement of Hurrell in the sex tape. The club is presently compiling a report on the alleged scandal.
Meanwhile, it has been rumored that Hurrell wants to leave the Warriors.
