Patriots Haters Making Pilgrimage to Massage Parlor in Robert Kraft Bust
Fans are flocking to the Orchids of Asia Day Spa to take photos and pose for selfies.
The Florida day spa where Patriots owner Robert Kraft allegedly solicited sex has become the new Mecca for New England haters.
Over the weekend, fans of the Jets, Giants and other NFL teams flocked to the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter to take photos and pose for selfies in front of the now-closed spa’s storefront.
“I am a Jets fan, so I’m here to take a picture,” a man who identified himself as Steve told The New York Post. “It’s so sad – you’re reading all this stuff, and Kraft was contributing to all of this.”
“I can’t believe how many morons like me are here taking a picture,” a Jupiter native told the paper. “Now this place is a historical site, it’s a tourist attraction — everyone wants a picture.”
Kraft, 77, was identified by police along with 25 other suspected johns, including billionaire Boston hedge-funder John Childs, golfer Johnny DelPrete, and former Citigroup president John Havens.
Police say Kraft solicited a prostitute on at least two separate occasions at the spa within the last month and that the average cost per visit for services was $59 or $79 per hour.
A warrant for Kraft’s arrest is expected to be issued on Monday.
He is facing two counts of misdemeanor soliciting a prostitute, charges which carry a maximum 60 days in jail and $500 fine for a first-time offense.
Kraft has denied all the charges against him. “We categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity. Because it is a judicial matter, we will not be commenting further,” a spokesperson for the billionaire said.
