Patriots owner Robert Kraft charged with soliciting sex at Florida spa


New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft on Friday was charged with two counts of soliciting prostitution at a Florida spa -- and cops say there's video.
Kraft, 77, is accused of paying for sexual acts at Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, located about 90 miles north of Miami. His name was among more than a dozen who were charged.
Police said they have Kraft, and others, on video receiving the sexual acts and that he participated in prostitution in Florida two separate times.
The spa had been shut down after a months-long investigation revealed women were participating in “sexual servitude,” TC Palm reported, citing arrest records. Nine other spas in Orlando, Palm Beach County and Treasure Coast had also been shut down as part of the investigation.
Police said the suspects paid between $59 and $79 for services.
Authorities said they handed the case over to the state’s attorney’s office and they were working on an active warrant for Kraft’s arrest.
"We categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity," a Patriots spokesperson said in a statement. "Because it is a judicial matter, we will not be commenting further."
The NFL added: "The NFL is aware of the ongoing law enforcement matter and will continue to monitor developments."
President Trump also commented on the charges Friday, telling reporters at the White House he was “very surprised to see it.”
“It’s very sad,” he said. “He’s proclaimed his innocence totally, but I’m very surprised to see it.”

NY POST – The billionaire owner of the New England Patriots faces charges of paying for sex at a massage parlor in South Florida, cops said Friday.
Robert Kraft — whose team scored its sixth Super Bowl victory earlier this month — was allegedly caught on camera during “two different visits” to the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter.
Kraft is among 25 suspected johns whose names were released Friday.
“He is being charged with the same offenses as the others, and that is soliciting another to commit prostitution,” Jupiter Police Chief Daniel Kerr told reporters at a news conference.
Kraft faces two counts of the misdemeanor offense, Kerr said.
Kraft was allegedly driven to and from the massage parlor by a chauffeur who will not be charged, Kerr said.
Kraft owns a condo in the luxury Breakers development in nearby Palm Beach, WPTV reported.
Of course Kraft denies that he was involved in anything illegal…
A spokesperson for Kraft said, “We categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity. Because it is a judicial matter, we will not be commenting further.”

The dude was caught on video twice! There’s no way I’m gonna believe that he didn’t know what he was doing.
But I guess the bright side of this dirty coin is that at least he was willing to pay for it and not go all Harvey Weinstein. Yeah I know, it’s sad that’s the comparison for rich and powerful men.
