Model, 20, Exposes The Seedy World Of Prostitution In The Fashion Industry

After An Agent Claims Household Names Are Paid Up To $2MILLION To Sleep With Rich Clients And Further Their Careers

EXCLUSIVE: Jazz Egger, 20 was offered £2,000 for ‘intimacy’ with a client

  • The London-based model was told: ‘that is how the fashion industry works’
  • Agent claimed that top supermodels are paid up to $2million for sex with men
  • Even sent screen shots of messages from models who said they ‘enjoyed it’

  • A young model has claimed prostitution is rife within the fashion industry after she was offered cash to sleep with wealthy men.

London-based model Jazz Egger, who recently turned 20, makes the extraordinary claim that ‘big agencies’ and ‘established models’ are involved in seedy underground dealings, with young women paid up to $2million (£1.54million) to spend the night with male clients.

Shockingly, Jazz claims she was even told that two young supermodels who have become household names have ‘spent time’ with men for money in order to get ahead in their career.

Austrian-born Jazz said she was first propositioned last summer after meeting an agent at an exclusive London club, who offered her an ‘image modelling job’ which involved a Greek yacht trip with three ‘millionaires’.

Jazz, who has 35,000 Instagram followers, also claims she has been told that one of the most established modeling agencies in the world was a ‘partner client’ of the company that had approached her for sex work.

She declined, but soon afterwards she was contacted by a second man who invited her to a private dinner with a ‘famous actor’ at a popular celebrity haunt – and advised that she would need to be comfortable with the ‘natural intimacy’ that followed.

When the then teen replied that she was ‘a model and not an escort’, she alleges the man – known only as George – shot back: ‘It’s the most normal thing in the industry, everyone does it.’

Shockingly, the agent claimed that two well-known fashion models have accepted vast sums of cash in return for ‘spending time’ with his clients.

He told her: ‘[The models] realise the value of money and how much of a difference it can make. And everyone enjoys having sex especially with good-looking guys. What is the shame? Society creates double standards that make women feel guilty.’

He added: ‘That is how the fashion industry works’ and even claimed that ‘most models get to where they were through something like this’.

George even told Jazz that one of the most established modeling agencies in the world was a ‘partner client’ of the company that had approached her for sex work.

He said: ‘All of these modelling agencies are run by hedge fund managers wanting to meet girls.’

‘This can’t be okay’

Jazz told MailOnline: ‘I would never sell my body in such a matter. I couldn’t combine it with my morals really.

‘I still respect those who do accept such offers. What made his offer highly questionable to me is that he asked me to keep quiet about it. This can’t be okay.

‘[George] reacted by spamming me with messages, in an attempt to convince me to accept his offer. It seemed like he was very experienced in that kind of conversation. He sent me screenshots of models who he allegedly worked with.’

She added: ‘I know some models that have done escort work and experienced unwanted sexual advances.

‘When I shared the article, many of my model colleagues messaged me, telling me about their experiences. It was sad to see that it’s such a common and usual thing.
