Love Ranch brothel owner Dennis Hof has placed Monica Monroe and Ryder Cherry, the two working girls who entertained Lamar Odom, on indefinite suspension “after TMZ broke the story about their statement to police that Odom was “snorting” something” in the bathroom while they ‘partied’ with him” on October 13, according to TMZ.
“Through interviews with the prostitutes who were with him since that point, it was learned that he possibly ingested cocaine in the bathroom,” Nye County Sheriff’s Detective Michael Eisenloffel said in his sworn affidavit seeking a search warrant.
“They indicated that they heard him snorting,” according to a transcript of Eisenloffel’s statement given to a judge over the phone at 10:15 p.m. on Oct. 13, the day of Odom’s collapse.
Hof says he’s taken action against the brothel girls for several reasons. First, the ladies knew there is a strict no drugs policy at the Ranch (and ALL of Hof’s brothels) — secondly, they failed to tell management about the “snorting” — also a no-no.
Moreover, it is a assumed that at least one one of the two prostitutes surreptitiously photographed Odom in his room, and then peddled the photos to the highest bidder. Hof is reportedly furious about a client, let alone a celebrity, having his privacy violated in such a manner.
He says both girls have been MIA since the Odom incident — they fled the Ranch, won’t respond to phone calls — and reportedly have not made themselves available to investigators working on Odom’s case since the day of the event. They also reportedly fled before authorities could have them drug tested to help determine just how directly involved they may have been in Odom’s collapse.
Hof previously announced he won’t pay their share of Odom’s $75,000 fee until they come back for a face-to-face meeting with him.
