'RHOBH' star Diana Jenkins DENIES Epstein link and 'madam' rumors: 'I was a broke a** refugee'
Diana Jenkins took to her instagram to snuff out rumors about her running a 'celebrity prostitution' ring and spending time with Jeffrey Epstein
Since Diana Jenkins was announced as the new cast member on 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Season 12, the rumors mills were buzzing with wild stories about her. One such accusation was from a blog run by a person who goes by the name of Enty Lawyer. The blog accused Jenkins of using her coffee table book featuring several celebrities' racy pictures as a 'front for celebrity prostitution'. The person also accused Jenkins of spending a 'LOT of time with Jeffrey Epstein' alongside a picture of Jeffrey Epstein and former president Donald Trump talking to a blonde woman who bore a striking resemblance to Jenkins.
Since then fans took to various discussion forums on the Internet to question the decision of casting Jenkins and also her alleged ties to Epstein and running a prostitution ring. As the Bravo show's premiere approached closer, the buzz around Jenkins' past got louder, leading to the new housewife finally taking to her Instagram to put the 'ridiculous madam rumors' to rest and also clear her name from being associated with Epstein.
On May 10, a day prior to the premiere of 'RHOBH' Season 12, the new housewife shared two posts on her Instagram page to put all the rumors about her to rest. In the first post, she shared a 4-minute video clip of Dr. Haris Silajdzic, former Prime Minister of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina, showering praises upon Jenkins and explaining the key role that she played in drawing the world's attention to the Bosnian situation and the ethnic genocide by Serbia. Dr Silajdzic can be heard describing Jenkins as a "successful businesswoman" with a big heart, and claimed that her attempts to speak up about Bosnia led to powerful people's attempts to assassinate her character.
Jenkins captioned the clip with her own take on the rumors and blamed the 'fake news' for designing rumors "to assassinate and discredit" her character and to prevent her from joining world politics and speaking on Bosnia and Herzegovina's behalf. She wrote, "Please listen Dr. Haris Silajdzic speak. Let’s put ridiculous madam Rumors to rest once and for all. This is the first time I am Speaking on this subject. Fake news is a powerful tool in hands of an enemy. I spent my adult life fighting for human rights and bringing war criminals to justice. Serbia's aggression on Bosnia and Herzegovina brought devastation to so many families and my entire country. It brought so much misery to My family and Me. My brother lost his life defending democracy. No different to what Russia and Putin are doing to Ukraine. In the name of all the victims, My decision was to fight them in international courts With everything I had. We won. But unfortunately, I paid the price with these fake rumors designed to assassinate my character and discredit me from world politics and speaking on Bosnia and Herzegovina's behalf. Sadly for them It was in vain. Bosnia and Herzegovina is in my heart and my soul and I will always proudly represent 🇧🇦."
Her post was met with a lot of love and encouragement from her followers. However, when one of the followers questioned her ties to Epstein based on the rumors, she decided to respond with another post to clarify that she was never associated with Epstein. Alongside a screenshot of Enty Lawyer's tweet, she pointed out that the picture of Epstein and Trump speaking to a woman who resembled her was in fact a model named Ingrid Seynhaeven. She also pointed out that at the time when that picture was taken, she was back in London still struggling to make ends meet as a refugee. "Let’s address this to. When these man were doing whatever they were doing I was broke a** refugee in London with no passport no name no country no family no one to help me . Surviving on barley any food . Sending whatever I could to my parents in Bosnia to survive. working 3 jobs to put my self to college. @entylawyer you knew the truth and yet you did this F*** you for putting me in the same bag with this monster. Woman in the picture is Ingrid Seynhaeven - Victoria Secret Angel Party - Laura Bell Club in NYC April of 1997."
With Jenkins clearing up all the rumors around her, hopefully, fans too will come around and enjoy watching her on the Bravo show.
