Reality star fights Tinder hookup’s sex-for-cash claim

BUSTY former Penthouse Pet and reality TV star Suzi Taylor allegedly told a man she met on Tinder he couldn't leave her apartment without paying her cash because "I have bills to pay, I have Rebels and bikies coming to my house chasing me for money".

According to court documents, Taylor, 49, is alleged to have told the 33-year-old Brisbane man she "lured" to her luxury apartment "If you want to go any further you need to cough up some money" as they lay on her bed kissing, and she took off her top, exposing her breasts.

Taylor, also known as Suellen Jan Taylor, is fighting the claims.

The extraordinary details of Taylor's alleged violent extortion of the man, who knew her as "Katie", can be revealed for the first time after The Courier-Mail obtained his witness statement, filed in the Supreme Court during the former The Block contestant's successful bail attempt.

"This is what I do for a living and my time is my money," the man claims Taylor told him.

"I believe by this comment Katie was implying that I needed to pay her for sex. This comment completely shocked me, and I have then said 'I am not paying for anything'."

Police have alleged Taylor, a mother of three, is earning money "by illegal means", according to court documents.

The revelations emerged in the same week The Courier-Mail photographed Taylor attempting to report to Palm Beach Police Station on the Gold Coast as part of her bail conditions - only to turn up late with a mystery, tattooed man who was sporting an ankle monitoring device. The pair knocked on the closed door of the police station, and resorted to slipping a note under the door before leaving.

Taylor faces 15 charges including deprivation of liberty, unlawfully detaining the man, assault occasioning bodily harm in company, extortion and drug possession. She intends to refute the version of events the man told to police and will challenge his credibility at trial, the court heard.

The man she allegedly held captive told police he met Taylor on dating apps Tinder and Plenty of Fish, and she invited him to her Brisbane home "for a drink" via a message on Plenty of Fish on October 29.

He told police he believed Taylor, who was on bail for car theft and breaking-and-entering at the time she was charged, was "aged in her late 30s to early 40s".

The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told police he was shocked when Taylor told him he needed to pay for sex after she allegedly told him "Let's take this into the bedroom" in the early hours of October 30.

When he refused to pay, he claimed to police he feared he would be "killed" by Suzi or her flatmate.

He told police he was allegedly tied up with a phone charging cable by Taylor's flatmate, Ali Ebrahimi, and then beaten by Taylor and Ebrahimi as they demanded he hand over the PIN to his phone so they could withdraw money from his online bank account.

The man told police that Taylor told Ebrahimi: "No, he isn't going anywhere, he has been here hours now. I have bills to pay, I have Rebels and bikies coming to my house chasing me for money, so I am not letting him go until I get my money".

Taylor denies she ever told the man she owed money to the Rebels and bikies, and says she does not owe them.

"I have no affiliation with any Outlaw Motorcycle Club. Any suggestion that I do is false," Taylor states in her affidavit filed in court.

The man told police that Taylor told him "You owe me $500" and when he replied "Absolutely no way do I owe you $500", she became angry and called him "a prick, asshole, and a thief".

"Katie also stated to me 'This is what I do for a living and my time is my money'," the man told police.

"I have continued to deny that I owed any type of money, because at no time did Katie say she was a prostitute and nor did she infer that I would need to pay her any money during any of my conversations with her.

"Katie has then screamed out to the males in the other room, yelling to them 'Ali, this guy has got no money'."

Taylor states in court documents: "I do not believe that I have a drug addiction issue. I do not know what the police mean when they allege I am earning money 'by illegal means'."

The alleged victim identified Ebrahimi and Taylor as his attackers from police photo-boards and agreed to be photographed by police to show bruising. He alleges Ebrahimi withdrew $950 from his bank account by using his card and PIN at an ATM at the New Farm IGA supermarket after Ebrahimi allegedly threatened: "You better make sure this number is correct. If I come back here and it's not the right number you're dead."

Taylor has been on bail since December 16, and has been living in Currumbin, on the Gold Coast, with her cousin.

Her strict bail conditions include a ban on leaving the state, a ban on going to Fortitude Valley or New Farm, an 8pm curfew, reporting to police three days a week, a ban on contacting the alleged victim or Ebrahimi.

She must not possess drugs and must have a low alcohol level when tested.

She is due back in Brisbane Magistrates Court on these charges on February 3.

Her Legal Aid lawyer, Thomas Schafer, stated in court documents that Taylor could face trial in the District Court on the extortion and assault charges by late this year.
