A con artist who claimed to have proof that David Letterman bedded several female staff members tried to extort $2 million from the the funnyman, he told his audience Thursday night.
The stunning admission came hours after Letterman testified before a grand jury and admitted to "sexual relationships with members of his staff."
"This morning, I did something I've never done in my life," said Letterman. "I had to go downtown and testify before a grand jury."
The "Late Show" host received a package from an individual who claimed to have information on his dalliances with female employees and said he would be outed unless he came up with $2 million.
Investigators instructed Letterman to mail a phony $2 million check to the individual, which led to the extortionist's arrest on Thursday.
Letterman, 62, was a long time bachelor who finally married longtime girlfriend Regina Lasko in March, when he announced it on air.

Gee, I always thought he was such a nice, sweet guy....
and admitted to “sexual relationships with members of his staff.”
He had bubba om his show last week. Think he got pointers?
Probably with Biff Henderson and Paul Schafer.
David letterman, degenerate, pervert, child abuser, liar, and world class a hole.
Maybe we should come up with our own Top Ten Best Reasons not to Watch the Letterman Show.
Fancy that a very queer guy that likes women..
I’m shocked, I tell you!
Hilariously funny...love it...can't wait to find out who...his wife must be sooooo embarrassed and mad.....very cool, can't have happened to a better guy!
so THAT is why rape jokes are funny, huh....
What kind of an idiot takes a check in a situation like this?
He made lots of fun of Sarah Palin’s appearance, and I always suspected that it was because he had been turned down flat by lots of beautiful women and resented them. Looks like he had to pressure subordinates to fulfill his fantasies.
That said, I suspect the “staff member” was Larry ‘Bud’ Melman, who used to be on the NBC version of his show (back when Dave was actually kind of funny).
Gee, a liberal show business celebrity with the morals of a rutting yak. Whooda thunk ...
funniest thing ever from Dave Liberalman...
He’s been obsessed with Sarah Palin. He’s just a dirty old man.
I have seen Letterman’s wife and I have to say I cannot blame him.
