Robert Kraft

New England Patriots billionaire owner Robert Kraft was charged with two counts of soliciting sex at a high class massage parlor in Florida, police said on Friday.

The prominent businessman was among 25 people arrested after a months long investigation into possible human trafficking, Jupiter, Fla police Chief Robert Kerr said during a news conference.

Among those taken into custody were the two proprietors of Orchids of Asia Day Spa, Kerr said.

Evidence gathered during the sting include video surveillance and photographs of the johns inside and outside of the establishment.

Kraft, 77, is accused of visiting the business on two occasions to solicit "happy endings" with his back rubs.

A spokesman for Mr. Kraft and the Patriots, Aaron Salkin, said in a statement, "We categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity. Because it is a judicial matter, we will not be commenting further."

Kraft's wife, Myra Nathalie Hiatt, died of ovarian cancer in 2011 at age 68. Their union produced 4 children.

The billionaire counts rappers Meek Mill (pictured with Kraft) and Jay-Z among his hip-hop circle of friends. He visited Meek in a Pennsylvania prison last year, after the rapper was sentenced to 2-4 years in prison for violating the terms of his probation.

"It's sad," Kraft told reporters outside the prison. "This guy is a great guy and shouldn't be here."

Mr. Kraft purchased the Patriots 25 years ago. Since then, the team has become the most successful franchise in the NFL, appearing in 10 Super Bowls and winning six titles. Kraft celebrated the Patriots' Super Bowl win on February 05, 2019 in Boston, Massachusetts.

The NFL frowns upon owners or players with criminal records.

A spokesman for the NFL did not respond to Yahoo News' request for a comment.

    R Kelly just charged with 10 counts of sexual abuse damn. Kraft will get a slap on the wrist for this. The "Johns" are typically not charged, he was hit with a mere misdemeanor. The tea IS PIPING HOT in 2019.

  • EasyBreezy

    Chile, what was his ole azz paying for? Company? A feel? Seems the V or C pill couldn't help this guy..... #OleWhiteManProblems

  • MsPam

    The tea is certainly hot, being a black man from/in Chicago is not a good thing.

  • Coy little wink

    Why is this news?

  • MJF

    lmao, he is a billionaire that will just face public shame for this incident, nothing more, nothing less.

  • Topic Influencer

    My dearest Mr. Kraft:

    If you are frens with a rapper, why didn’t you just CALL him to ask him where the hoes at in South Florida? He could have in TURN just called his homie Rozay, and you could have had a whole tribe of whores sent to your doorstep.

    That is how a man worth $6 billion US American Dollars is supposed to conduct himself. Instead you literally got caught with your dick in your old shriveled up ass hand, buying puss in a seedy massage parlor.

    Congrats, you played yourself.

    Your sister in Christ,

    77 yr old billionaire shopping for a hand job in a seedy strip mall like some overweight truck driver from Kentucky . Billionaires they’re just like us uh??!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I think this time they're going to nail him like they couldn't quite nail him the last time. A dozen witnesses testified to the grand jury, with one of them providing "physical evidence" to back up her testimony. It's hard to see him getting away with it this time.

    Bc he old and nasty and was out the game for 48 years til his wife managed to die. Then got with a gold digger. So now he back in and still think its 1962 (year before he got married) and think that its okay to still buy a hooker using this means and manner (he so damn old that is what they call them: hookers)

    Ummm he has a very young, pretty girlfriend..they’ve been together for awhile now! Men will be men but at his age and with his ? all 6 Billion..he needs to stick with his girlfriend ....smh

  • Darkandlovely617?

    I literally don’t understand. And am so embarrassed for him. I’m going out tonight on the town just to clown those who “have the game on lock” here and inquire as to how this occurred.
    It’s well known about the ladies on the books. So this here stumps me ?????

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    #doingtoomuch
    Robert Kraft is like that rich old dude in the club, trying to pick up some one of the young chicks (who everybody knows is only paying attention to him because he's got money).?

  • Darkandlovely617?

    No, he paid for her baby and that was it.
    This man is out on the town regularly.

  • Vonn

    Did Weak Mills drop & pop it like this, or is it just an example?

  • CookieMobster

    Log OUT and sit in the co-ner

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Rra Kelly has finally been indicted!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    He stinks.

    Anybody PAYING for anything sexual or doing sexually illicit things, STINK! I can smell him from here.

  • Li-Wright

    This is why prostitution should be legal. There should be one brothel in every state so these men don't have to be ostracized. There's nothing wrong with what he did, the laws are old.

  • Li-Wright

    How do you know the girlfriend isn't with a young hot thang?

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Remember that coach that was snorting coke off a stripper’s back, or some chit like that ??? They wild!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Super-embarrassing. But since Robert Kraft is a diehard Trump supporter, he's getting zero sympathy from me.

    Maybe that’s petty of me, but I. dont. care. ?

  • GAPeach

    $59 for 30 minutes, $79 for an hour. I read it on another site.

  • T Willis

    They can’t tax prostitution and the U. S. is still puritanical in its values (right wing nut jobs)

  • Li-Wright

    Onto another subject....That indictment of R. Kelly is going nowhere unless someone can ID the girl in the tape and/or verify she is indeed 14 years old and she has to testify....going nowhere.
    As for the other counts against him....those women are 40 years old. How the heck is the state going back 30 years to prove that he sexually "assaulted" them when they voluntarily went with him at 15-16 yo? This is nonsense legally....and R. Kelly will escape again. Now, the Fed case is different because he crossed state lines.

  • WhoKnew

    Birds of a feather "fluck" together.

  • WhoKnew
  • GAPeach

    It's not just the prostitution aspect. These girls were being forced, and threatened to comply. That makes this a whole different story, but I'm sure his old azz wasn't in on the trafficking.

  • DeJeri

    We all know Trump and his ilk are a bunch of tricks...just ask Stormy

    I would write a check that he can twerk his a$$ off???

  • onelove

    i wonder how much he offered...being a billionaire and all...maybe $800,000.00? hummmm!

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Let’s be real he’s a billionaire , it ain’t like women are lined up for his heart and kind soul, on his level dealing with most women would be tricking , unless she’s caked up aswell.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    I doubt tht kraft would have to force any woman to do anything as a billionaire. He has too much going on to be so ruthless . He just got his timing wrong and got caught up but trust , no one in the sports community is laughing because most of them tricking off behind closed doors. They play ball 9 - 10 months out of the year . Have no time for social life . Can’t go to grocery stores , can’t go to the movies or take walks in the park. The strip/ night club is the only outing for most .

  • GAPeach

    I stated in my comment that I didn't believe he was in on the trafficking. That doesn't negate the fact that these women were being victimized.

  • Ghost

    Oh...ok. I know I’ve seen several pictures of them together and she’s always referred as the “girlfriend “ but he’s waaaay out of my tax bracket so ?????

  • Ghost

    Expected with the age difference ???, but he’s another story ??? ijs...

  • Mielle Downey

    Many women make a living on their backs by choice. Who am I to judge and he was paying for a service. Now if the girl is underage then that is where the buck stops. Some men just don't want to be bothered with nagging women and would rather save thier money buy paying for up front.

  • Tammie Reed

    All that money and he does that yuck!

  • Eileen

    UH...all of that money and his teeth are "jacked"

  • Eileen

    I understand your point completely and I agree with it! It was 2 adults consensual whats the problem?

  • Eileen

    you wrong for that...LOL and I love my President!

  • Eileen

    Stop it...LOL men with big money have big issues

  • Bonita

    Yeah, I have no problem with prostitution between consenting adults. The only reason why the government does is because they haven't figured out a way to tax the service providers.

  • ShWa

    Nasty dog..

  • Marlika

    Wasn’t this fool dancing with that bird Cardi when she performed at one of Super Bowl parties??

    Nothings going to happen to him. He’s a billionaire. He’s get a slap on his rest like the billionaire Epstein dude.???????????

  • Alextra Ballard

    Laaawd this old seasoned hoe out in the world still tryna fcuk somebidy. Look at his yuck mouf. I guess yew ain neva to old to solicit pu&&say

  • Logan Roberts

    Damn maybe you should've tried Christian Mingles homie.

  • Mielle Downey

    I agree IG has become the new back pages and hoes ain't hiding how they make a living.

  • Mielle Downey

    It tricking if you got it and it ain't trafficking if you willing and an advertising it.

  • DeeFromLA

    Yeah but this is a sex trafficking ring, that's a little different than just getting a massage with a "happy ending" at the spa. This sounds like the services were provided by individuals being held against their will. It's possible he didn't know but still.

  • A D N

    Leave this man alone lol. I'm glad he can get an erection and then use the erection to have a happy ending.
