Aside from setting the record straight with ‘Underscore’, Samantha Barbash suggests through her lawyer that she might launch a lawsuit against the film producers for misrepresenting her.
AceShowbiz -The real-life stripper who reportedly inspired Jennifer Lopez‘s character in new movie “Hustlers” is releasing her own book to set the record straight.
Samantha Barbash claims J.Lo and the film’s producers didn’t reach out to her to secure the rights to her life story and so she has written it all down for those who want to get the lowdown on her escapades.
Barbash, who is on probation after pleading guilty to conspiracy, assault and grand larceny following a Wall Street heist she masterminded, will release Underscore later this month.
In an exclusive excerpt released by Barbash to Page Six, she reveals her clients were “mostly VIP clients at Scores and Hustler” and she used to “arrange for the hottest girls to come to parties”, adding, “These parties always came with huge payouts for me and the girls”.
Barbash recalls one former client, who was a “well-known R&B singer”, who wanted to continue a party in his hotel suite and offered to pay all the girls who came an extra $8,000 (£6,600) each.
“There was no sex involved… All he wanted to do was dance with the girls and do mounds of cocaine with all the naked bodies surrounding him. After an hour and a half… he started acting beyond strange, and kept looking out the windows and under the doors constantly from the paranoia of all the drugs he ingested. Once he saw that I was leaving, he said, ‘Please don’t go. I’m sorry. I’m f** ked up. I like your company’. He handed me a huge tip and his personal phone number and we’ve been friends ever since.”
Barbash also tells Page Six she is considering a lawsuit over the J.Lo movie.
Her lawyer, Bruno Gioffre, tells the outlet, “The movie is based on court records from the trial and a New York magazine interview of one of the co-defendants in the case against dancers at Scores. Although Samantha wasn’t a dancer at that time, we believe the movie and Jennifer Lopez’s character is based on her. We plan on seeing the movie before deciding on what steps to take.”
