Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Is this blackmail

Blackmail no. This is not demanding money with menaces.
What you can do though is seek a Court order to stop him telling anyone. This is because he shouldnt be saying you either do X or I will do Y. So whilst its not illegal you can get a Court order.
