Top Bulgarian Models, Singers Said to Make Money as Prostitutes
Top Bulgarian models, singers, and beauty pageant winners are also working as high-class prostitutes, a popular model has admitted.
Thus, a number of the popular Bulgarian beauties make about BGN 30 000-40 000 monthly by providing escort services to wealthy men, revealed model Katrin Vacheva in the “Code: Criminal” talks show on the Pro.bg TV channel.
According to Vacheva, many top models, pop-folk singers, and even former holders of the Miss Bulgaria title, who are featured on the covers of erotic Bulgarian magazines are featured in a catalog from which wealthy men, including businessmen, bankers, Members of Parliament and other politicians, can pick them and pay them for sexual services.
“When you become Miss Bulgaria or win some other pageant, your price goes up, and you become desired by higher-class gentlemen,” said Vacheva, who was severely beaten by a player of the Bulgarian football club CSKA Sofia in March 2010.
According to the authors of the Pro.bg talk show there are wealthy men in Bulgaria who become “collectors” of top girls, i.e. they aspire to use the services of every single girl featured on the cover of an erotic magazine.
Commenting on the same topic, Evgeniya Kalkandzieva, a former Miss Bulgaria and head of the largest Bulgarian agency for fashion models, confirmed she had heard of a catalog offering sexual services of top models but said she never saw it.
“There are rumors that a number of the Bulgarian model are also dealing with prostitution but I haven’t seen anything. There are over 100 fashion agencies in Bulgaria. Apparently, there is not enough work and money for all them. This means that some of them might offer their girls as company to wealth and powerful men,” said the 1995 winner of the Miss Bulgaria title. She also pointed out that the low fees that Bulgarian models get – between BGN 50 and BGN 300 – for their appearances might have driven many of them to offer paid sexual services.
