Actors, models, and singers know they have an allegiance of fans the world over. They make sure their base doesn’t forget about them by posting on social media their latest professional and at times personal endeavors.
Still, there are some people who take their respect and admiration of beautiful women too far. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Sandra Bullock, Blake Lively, and Selena Gomez are just some of the women who have been stalked by fans. Luckily, for these women the men were given restraining orders or put behind bars depending on the threat. Blurring the line between fiction and reality can sometimes be a little too much for people.
Sometimes the adoring fan though is the one who falls victim to its own celebrity obsession.
Yu ‘Martin’ Xu alleges he paid Sydney-based agency Royal Court Escort for ‘sexual services’ from Hollywood actress Megan Fox, Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel and Independence Day actress Angelababy but was stood up.
Mr Xu said an agent told him that the agency would provide ‘female escorts of international standing for the provision of sexual services’, according to documents filed in the NSW Supreme Court.
The court documents refer to Hollywood actress Megan Fox, Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel (pictured) and Independence Day actress Angelababy, but it is not suggested the women are escorts.
Yu ‘Martin’ Xu alleges he paid Sydney-based Royal Court Escort for ‘sexual services’ from celebrities, but the agency stood him up and ‘the person was not provided’.
He said the company agreed to facilitate the meeting anywhere in the world if he paid $3.7 million, as well as the costs of transport and accommodation.
‘It was agreed that if (Mr Xu) paid the sum of $3.7 million (the agency) would provide Megan Fox, Candice Swanepoel and ‘Angelababy’ as escorts for sexual services,’ Mr Xu’s statement of claim said.
Mr Xu then alleges the agency stood him up, and despite making the payments he never met with the A-listers.
There is no suggestion that Megan Fox, Candice Swanepoel or Angelababy are escorts.
He launched legal action against the parent company of Royal Court Escorts in an effort to recover the $3.724 million he claims to have paid.
To access the services Mr Xu paid the agency a $24,000 ‘joining fee’, he claimed in court documents.
After another payment to the agency in July 2014, he paid a further $500,000 on August 13, 2014, court documents said.
Another $500,000 payment was made two days later, with two more payments totaling $2.5 million on August 19, the documents said.
Mr Xu’s statement of claim said ‘It was agreed that if he paid the sum of $3.7 million the agency would provide Megan Fox, Candice Swanepoel and ‘Angelababy’ as escorts for sexual services.
Mr Xu claimsthat the agency agreed to send Angelababy (pictured) in September 2014 but the alleged rendezvous fell through when ‘the person was not provided’
A final payment of $200,000 was transferred on August 21.
In his statement of claim, Mr Xu alleges that he had organised to meet with 27-year-old model, singer and actress Angelababy, who recently starred in Independence Day: Resurgence.
Mr Xu says that the agency agreed to send Angelababy in September 2014 but the alleged rendezvous fell through when ‘the person was not provided.’
It is understood the parent company of Royal Court Escorts, Nalwa Holdings, will defend the claim but they have yet to file a defence statement with the court.
