Many observers look at Zahia Dehar and wonder if it is actually a bad thing to be a elite prostitute when one considers the benefits that have been accorded to her as a result? Zahia Dehar is a French lingerie designer who used to be an underage prostitute. It is common knowledge that she became famous because she was found to have slept with two members of France's National Football squad, Franck Ribery and Karim Benzema. However, while many who have made the same mistake have been jailed without a question, Zahia Dehar became famous and wealthy.
Zahia Dehar does not disclose the fact that she is an underage prostitute to Franck Ribery and Karim Benzema, two wealthy footballers and in the process she becomes not only the victim but also famous. As the result of her deception she has become a well known model who has been able to secure numerous modelling opportunities because of her notoriety. In addition, she is now a French reality television star and the muse of one of the most famous fashion designers in the world, Karl Lagerfeld.
Who says crime does not pay? For Zahia Dehar, being an underage prostitute has made her rich as a result of being caught by the police. One question that people have brushed over is that while the authorities have been pursuing a case against the footballer stars Franck Ribery and Karim Benzema for using the services of an underage prostitute which all of the parties have denied they had any knowledge of, what message is the Zahia Dehar situation sending to young women?
Is it acceptable for a young lady to lie when the opportunity for great wealth presents itself that she can potentially use the high profile names of her clients to further her life at their expense? Zahia Dehar deserves much credit for moving on with her life and not letting herself be defined by her prior work as an underage prostitute. Nevertheless, the fact that Zahia Dehar has been able to profit from the deception of her clients sends a dangerous message to young girls who might consider following in her path and hoping that the same fame and fortune will follow because Zahia Dehar's situation is the equivalent of catching lightning in a bottle, it may happen once in our lifetime but a person would be foolhardy to expect it to happen twice because it won't and the consequences may be severe for all parties involved.
