Revealed: Vile ‘friend’ attempted to benefit from Michael Schumacher’s accident

Little is known of Michael Schumacher's condition since his horrific skiing accident in 2013.

It has shockingly been revealed that a “friend” of Michael Schumacher’s attempted to sell “secret” photos of the German that he smuggled from the seven-time World Champion’s home in 2016, showing the legend’s current condition.

The report comes from The Sun, who also revealed that the vile friend put the photos on sale for just over $1.2 million.

Little is known of the condition of Mick Schumacher’s father, since his horrible skiing accident in 2013.

Schumacher suffered a “traumatic brain injury” in his accident, which left him in an induced coma for a year, before he finally woke.

Images of the driver have never been seen since the crash, with those that were taken by the friend having never been looked at by the unnamed outlet that were offered the photos.

The photos were reportedly of Schumacher in bed, with German prosecutors having labelled the inhumane act as a “violation of his personal range of life” and a breach of privacy.

Interestingly, an investigation into the friend has reportedly been put on hold, despite Schumacher’s wife, Corinna, demanding for the police to take action.

The only insights into Schumacher’s condition are typically given by former Ferrari boss Jean Todt, who remains a close family friend of the 91-time Grand Prix winner.

Todt is one of the few people who continues to see Schumacher throughout the year, with Todt having revealed that he watches Formula 1 with the German.

“I don’t miss Michael, I see him. Yes, it’s true, I watch races with Michael,” Todt recently told RTL.

“But sure, I guess what I miss is what we used to do together.

“I don’t leave him alone. Him, Corinna, the family, we’ve had so many experiences together,” he said.

“The beauty of what we have experienced is part of us and it goes on.

“Sometimes success and money changes you. But Michael has never changed. He’s so strong.”

It is somewhat unbelievable to think that the incident took place nearly a decade ago, with Corinna having looked after the hero to many ever since.

She spoke about her husband last Wednesday when collecting an award on his behalf, with there having been an incredible standing ovation which broke her to tears.

“I have never blamed God for what happened,” Corinna said, when collecting an award on Michael’s behalf in Cologne.

“It was just really bad luck – all the bad luck anyone can have in life.

“It’s always terrible when you say, ‘Why is this happening to Michael or us?’ But then why does it happen to other people?

“Of course, I miss Michael every day. But it’s not just me who misses him.

“It’s the children, the family, his father, everyone around him.

“I mean, everybody misses Michael, but Michael is here. Different, but he’s here and that gives us strength, I find.”
