Kidnapping Suspect Claims Model, Desperate For Fame, Staged Entire Affair
Some people, desperate for fame will do anything to get it. Sell their bodies to get a good gig is commonplace in the entertainment industry, as has been recently highlighted in the Hollywood and Democratic politician sex scandals.
Now, the man accused of kidnapping model Chloe Ayling claims she plotted the whole ordeal in a desperate bid for fame, according to a report.
Lukasz Herba, 30 — who is accused of holding the 20-year-old bombshell in Italy for six days and threatening to sell her to a sex trafficking gang — said, through his lawyer, that the kidnapping was a farce.
“They planned it together so she would become famous,” Herba’s lawyer, Katia Kolakowska, told the Mirror UK.
The pair had an existing relationship and met up in Paris to plan the abduction, Kolakowska said.
The model told cops that Herba, a Polish national living in the UK, and brother Michal lured her to a fake photoshoot in Milan and drugged her with ketamine before taking her to a remote cottage.
Police said a group calling itself Black Death sought to auction her online with a starting bid of $353,000 and released her in front of the British consulate in Milan after finding out she has a 2-year-old child.
Doubt was cast on the model’s account after it emerged that she’d gone on a shoe-shopping spree during her alleged captivity.
She’s since parlayed her ordeal into speaking gigs and a tell-all book deal.
Her lawyer, Francesco Pesce, has bashed claims that her kidnapping was a hoax, calling the suggestion “evil.”
“She was subjected to a tremendous ordeal and she suffered so much,” he said.
One thing is for certain, this is far more interesting than Kim Kardashian’s robbery in Paris.
