TMZ has picked up on Ashleygate, although not directly mentioning the Diva. The gossip site’s rather suggestive title reads, “WWE Diva Fingerd in Escort Ring”… classy:
A prominent female WWE star has been named as an employee of an L.A. escort service that the FBI is probing.
The FBI confirms to TMZ that there’s an investigation into the Bella Models escort service in California and Florida, but wouldn’t confirm the WWE star’s role. Rolling Stone says that, according to the Bureau, the WWE babe, Playboy and Maxim models, and porn stars were employed by Bella.
We’ve put in a call to the WWE, but haven’t heard back.
Now that the story is getting gossip blog attention, it’s only a matter of time the national press picks it up on it… and then it’s only a matter of time before WWE is bound to respond! Screw going to see Iron Man, grab a chair and pull up some popcorn and tune into Ashleygate!
