What was the sextortion bid?
Scekic exposed the scandalous plot against Novak, revealing that a guy offered her $70,000 for it.

Feeling offended and humiliated, Scekic resisted the offer and stated that it was unfair on her part to do the scandalous act on the biggest sporting icon of her nation. She said, “He is our best ambassador, an exemplary man, a family man. For someone to seduce him like that for money, or at least try to [is not fair on Novak].”
Did Novak Djokovic ever betray his wife, Jelena Djokovic?
In a troubling twist, Natalija Scekic’s revelation coincided with a period of persistent rumors surrounding Novak Djokovic and his wife, Jelena. These speculations surfaced when the couple chose not to publicly celebrate their anniversary, sparking discussions about potential issues.
As far back as 2017, concerns arose linking Novak Djokovic’s on-court struggles to potential troubles at home. Tennis commentator John McEnroe had drawn Djokovic’s parallel to Tiger Woods, whose form had dipped immediately after his marriage woes.
A source from The Sun suggested concerns, indicating that Jelena had consistently been Novak’s pillar of support. Speculations had emerged, suggesting the possibility of problems in their relationship. The decision not to attend any Wimbledon matches had raised Jelena’s usual promptness in expressing pride in Novak’s success.

Contrary to these rumors, Djokovic addressed the situation. He also confronted the gossip head-on, telling The Sun, “I understand that it is more interesting for people to read Nole and Jelena are getting divorced than Nole and Jelena are in love. But that doesn’t affect Jelena and me because we love each other.” Djokovic strongly contradicted such rumors, affirming his love for Jelena.
