You just assumed it was over, didn't you?
We haven't heard much of anything as it pertains to the charges facing New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft in recent weeks. The 78-year-old was officially charged with two counts of soliciting prostitution at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida. That scandal materialized in February, shortly after the Patriots' Super Bowl victory, and new details have now emerged in a detailed piece in Vanity Fair. And they are scathing.
Vanity Fair maintains that according to Jupiter police, Kraft paid money to one spa worker in exchange for a sexual act that also involved a separate employee. The graphic details, which we will spare you here, don't cast the Patriots owner in the best possible light.
Upon leaving Orchids of Asia, Kraft was stopped by police for a minor traffic violation but ultimately got off scot-free with warning-- reportedly after he flaunted his Super Bowl ring to the officer. Later that same day, Kraft is to have called up a close friend to recount the sexual act he experienced the spa.
The following day, Kraft returned to Orchids and qualified for the spa's "early bird special" for $15 off any treatment. He reportedly engaged in two different sexual acts, and later flew to Kansas City to watch New England face off against the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.
At this time, neither Kraft nor the Patriots have issued any additional statements on the ongoing legal proceedings or Vanity Fair's report. But suffice to say that this story isn't going away just yet.
