Thirsty Warriors fan and Instagram model Roni Rose has apparently been linked to a Bay Area prostitution ring for her affiliation with the website Mad Girls Fitness.
Dominic Salazar, 54, of Pleasant Hill, has been charged with human trafficking, pimping and three pandering counts related to running a “house of prostitution,” according to court documents. Police say Salazar was running a business called “Mad Girls Fitness Club,” which advertises itself online as selling modeling, advertising and pole fitness parties.
Authorities say they found evidence that Salazar recruited sex workers by placing online advertisements for models, then telling women who applied that they would need to be prostitutes before they could become models. He then allegedly used online advertisements to set up deals for sex services online, and would split the profits with the women under his employment. To date, authorities say they have not found evidence that he used violence or threats to coerce sex workers.
Two undercover detectives, wearing wires and microphones, paid Salazar a visit last week after the tip about his business came in, Pleasant Hill police Lt. Scott Vermillion said.
“Once they got inside, it was exactly what we suspected, a house of prostitution,” Vermillion said. “They made a deal of sex services for money, and when the money was given, we called it and that’s when the arrest was made.”
According to several websites Rose heavily promoted the website on her Instagram page but has since taken down all the photos and links off of her social media sites.
Rose’s images are still prominently featured on the Mad Girls Fitness website.
That could explain why she could afford better tickets than Ayesha Curry at the NBA finals.
