Dearly previously reported the most “terrifying experience” of Chloe Ayling’s life after she was kidnapped to be sold on the black market as a sex slave.
The 20-year-old British glamour model recounted her harrowing ordeal to The Sun after she was released by her alleged captor, 30-year-old Lukasz Herba.
On July 11, Ayling was lured to an abandoned building under the guise of a photo shoot in Milan, Italy, when she was assaulted, drugged, bound and gagged, stuffed into a bag, and then put into the trunk of the car.
She was then taken to a remote farmhouse in the Italian countryside where she was chained up and told where she was headed:
“All girls are for the Arab market, and when the buyer gets fed up of a girl bought at auction, he can gift her to other people, and when of no interest anymore, feed her to tigers.”
She was eventually released when it came to the attention of the organization behind the kidnapping, the “Black Death Group,” that Ayling was the mother of a young child.
According to reports, Ayling was told the “boss” of the operation was furious to learn that she was a mother:
“I was not meant to be taken because the boss had seen my Instagram profile, which clearly showed that I was a mum with a young boy, and this went against the rules of the organisation.”
Although she reportedly already had interested buyers lined up, Ayling was handed over to the British consulate in Milan in exchange for £50,000 ($65,065 USD) paid to the organization by her agent.
Her alleged kidnapper, Herba, was arrested by the authorities and confessed to the kidnapping.
In the wake of the frightening ordeal, Ayling has reportedly been fielding offers to speak publicly about her experience to draw awareness to the importance of stopping human trafficking.
Her ex-partner is also speaking out about the incident — but not in the way people might expect.
According to the New York Post, Conor Keyes, the father of the toddler credited for being the reason behind Ayling’s release, has insinuated the young model is a “bad mom” for not being involved in the little boy’s life.
The 21-year-old father told the Daily Star that since Ayling’s release, she has yet to visit her son:
“She can come and see him whenever she wants to but the thing is I am still waiting for her to do that.”
Keyes seemed to suggest that Ayling has been absent from her son’s life for a while, claiming he’s been the 21-month-old’s primary caretaker ever since her modeling career took off:
“She wants to be a model and she can’t do it when she’s 40. But for now she is young and dumb. Since I was with her she has changed. She is already doing stuff that she didn’t when I was with her. […]
She is probably self-obsessed with everything that she is doing on social media, it is just photos from this country and that country. […]
That is not a normal person’s life. […]
I have got to wake up with my son every day and do this and do that.”
Ayling and Keyes reportedly met in 2014 and were in an on-again, off-again relationship before separating six months after the birth of their son.
A spokesman for Ayling did not respond to the Daily Star’s request for comment.
In an interview, Keyes told the Daily Mail he doesn’t “know what to make” of Ayling’s kidnapping and rescue.
