The walk of shame: Dubai's taxi sexpat calls in damage control
After an alleged taxi romp in Dubai, British expat Becky Blake has hired PR guru, Max Clifford to help sort out her image.
According to the Sun newspaper, 29-year-old Blake spent five days in a Dubai jail after being accused of having sex with her fiancé in the back of a cab.
Despite strenuously denying the accusations, Blake has hired Clifford, the PR mogul infamous for representing kiss-and-tell clients in the UK.
Prosecutors are currently questioning the Irish man, C.M., and Blake over charges of public indecency, consensual sex and consuming liquor, sources told Gulf News on Wednesday.
According to primary police interrogations, the arresting police officer said Blake was not wearing a shirt when he arrested the couple.
But there have been questions raised over whether the couple had enough time to carry out the act, as they were only in the taxi for a matter of minutes before a police patrol stopped them.
One source said: "It would have been impossible for the woman to have taken off her shirt and initiated a sexual activity within a time span of two minutes.”
The pair have admitted consuming alcohol but said they remained dressed at all time during the ride from the airport. According to Blake’s Irish fiancé, he was giving her a hug because she was “sad”.
Police in Dubai are still waiting on the results of forensic tests on the taxi but reports so far suggest they will be negative.
