CCU Cheerleaders Accused Of Prostitution Reportedly Worked As Strippers, Used Website To Find Sugar Daddies
After weeks of speculation we have now a little bit more info concerning the Coastal Carolina cheerleading squad who were indefinitely suspended pending a conduct investigation after an anonymous tipster alleged that they were part of a prostitution ring.
According to an investigation done by the school, some of the girls admitted to working as escorts and used SeekingArrangement.com, a legal website that helps connect women with “sugar daddies”.
The entire cheer team has been suspended from cheering due to a pending conduct investigation, but are still permitted to attend class.
According to the investigation report obtained by The Sun News through a Freedom of Information request, cheerleaders involved in the escort services were paid between $100 and $1,500 per date.
Cheerleaders also would receive goods such as Michael Kors purses, as well as shoes and clothes, according to the investigation. One cheerleader was offered $800 to escort a male to New York Prime, according to the report.
The cheerleaders would not engage in sexual favors, the report stated, but the investigation found “evidence of an escort service.”
The cheerleaders ran the operation through the website seekingarrangement.com, according to the report.
Text messages between cheerleaders advised team members working at the strip clubs, including Thee DollHouse, to quit their jobs until after a national cheerleading competition taking place in Dayton Beach, Fla., according to the report.
It is worth noting that unless the school can prove that the girls had sex for money then nothing that they did is illegal. It is also unclear if they violated any of the school’s conduct policies by working as strippers and escorts.
Here’s a copy of the school’s investigation report obtained by Deadspin.
