Mark Jackson extorted by stripper

Mark Jackson, former St. John’s and Knicks star, claims he was subject of blackmail scheme by ex-lover Alexis Adams (right).

“I recognize the extremely poor judgment that I used . . . in having an affair six years ago — including the embarrassing communication I exhibited during that time,” the Brooklynite said in a statement. “I made some egregious errors. . . . With deepest regret, I want to apologize to my church family. I was wrong. We must live holy.”

The Jacksons’ marriage survived, but Adams held on to the pictures like a time bomb while nursing a grudge against the one-time All Star.

In one message to Shaw before the shakedown, she exhorted him to “concentrate and f— (Jackson) up! he is a Fake ass man of god.”

Jackson was approached two months ago at a Memphis hotel by Shaw, 40. The suspect showed Jackson a folder with the damning photos and the CD.

Jackson quickly paid $5,000 cash and destroyed the materials — only to have his tormentor resurface two weeks later in a series of emails, officials said.

Jackson’s wife of 22 years was contacted next with a threatening message regarding the photos.
