John Stamos Extortion Plot: Gay Affair?

Actor John Stamos (ER, Full House) appears to be the victim of an extortion plot involving photos taken of him at a party in 2004. It's unclear how or why these photos would be so damaging to his reputation. Rumours are rampant that the photos depict the popular actor doing drugs or having a gay affair. At the time these photos were taken Stamos was married to actress and model, Rebecca Romijn. The following year the couple divorced. Did these photos have something to do with their break-up? The Smoking Gun reports that two people from Michigan demanded that Stamos pay them nearly $700,000 or they'd publicly release the photos. Agents in the case have arrested Allison Coss, 23, and Scott Sippola, 30, in connection with the extortion plot.

UPDATED (12:00 PM, December 8th, 2009) reports that John Stamos confirms he was allegedly blackmailed for $680,000 and that the photos are merely him "posing with fans."

No one gets blackmailed for simply posing with fans.
