Robert Kraft charges spark petition to remove Gillette name from Patriots’ stadium

Robert Kraft charges spark petition to remove Gillette name from Patriots’ stadium

Yang has not been charged with any prostitution-related crimes, and she sold the Orchids of Asia Day Spa - the Jupiter establishment that Kraft allegedly visited - in 2013 to another businesswoman, Hua Zhang, who was charged with felony prostitution-related crimes in last month's sweep. Yang said that she'd sold the particular spa that Kraft allegedly spent time at decades prior, and she has not been implicated in a statewide crackdown on the prostitution rings masquerading as massage parlors.

Looks like this scandal just got a whole lot more interesting.

According to the Herald report, Yang became active in the political scene around Trump's rise to power and has been a prolific donor: "Since 2017, she and her close relatives have contributed more than $42,000 to Trump Victory, a political action committee, and more than $16,000 to the president's campaign".

Yang, 45, has been in the spotlight in recent weeks since a police raid on a premises in Florida, following allegations of prostitution and human trafficking linked to her business.

Trump said he was "surprised" by the charges against Kraft in the immediate aftermath of the announcement and cited the Patriots owner's own denial.

19 days later, Kraft was charged with soliciting a prostitute after he was "twice videotaped in a sex act at a shopping-center massage parlor in Florida", AP News reports.

The White House has not yet commented on the Herald's report.

On February 3, Yang posted not only a selfie of herself with the president, but also a series of photos from the Superbowl party.

Yang was spotted in photos with Trump, Trump's children and with Florida politician Ron DeSantis at the president's resort, Mar-a-Lago, the paper reported. Later in the year, she attended at least two more AAPI events in Washington D.C., according to her Facebook page.

Other than their billionaire status and fondness for playing golf together, Trump and Kraft are also linked by the lawyer the latter hired to represent him, Jack Goldberger.

The Patriots owner pleaded not guilty last week in West Palm Beach, and he has an arraignment set for March 28.
