When the Upper East Side “millionaire madam” — who allegedly ran a brothel that brought in millions from high-flying clientele — was arrested last month, she was meeting with an unidentified Morgan Stanley banker.
Anna Gristina, who is currently being held at Rikers Island on $2 million bond, was seeking financial backing from the banker in order to develop a website that would “match prostitutes with wealthy men,” according to court documents obtained by DNAInfo.
Of course, Morgan Stanley probably isn’t happy having its name mentioned in this case. What’s more is the investment bank did a search attempting to find the unnamed banker, according to the New York Post.
From the NYPost:
The investment bank Morgan Stanley searched records of visitors at its New York offices to try to track down which of its bankers met with Gristina before her bust last month to allegedly discuss setting up an online prostitution service.
We called Morgan Stanley to find out more, but the bank declined to comment.
So look around you at work today. Who seems nervous?
