The first ever photograph of Michael Schumacher since his horrific accident back in 2013 is reportedly being auctioned in Europe for £1 million pounds.
The photograph was taken at the F1 legend’s home in Geneva, Switzerland where he has been cared for since 2014, reports the Daily Mail.
At the minute an investigation is underway seeking to find out just what parasitical human being it was that took the photograph and how they managed to sneak it out of the Schumacher residence.
The photograph has been condemned by Michael’s friend and manager, Sabine Kehm, who said:
Michael’s health is not a public issue, and so we will continue to make no comment in that regard.
We have to protect his intimate sphere. Legally seen and in the longer term, every statement related to his health would diminish the extent of his intimate sphere.
Personally I think it’s a sad reminder of humanity merely knowing that there are people in this world who would take a photograph of an incredibly ill man in his own home with only one intention in mind – to sell it and make a fortune.
Apparently prosecutors are investigating the images as a violation of Schumacher’s ‘personal range of life’.
Now I guess we can only hope that the police find out what evil human being is trying to flock such images for their thirty pieces of silver before it’s too late.
