For porn’s own conniving problem child and trouble magnet, it’s always been a pay to play world. But now it’s Trinity St. Clair’s time to pay.
Last summer, we reported that adult starlet, schemer and pimptress Trinity St. Clair had been sued in LA Superior Court by both LA Direct Models AND Matrix Models for unlawfully representing performers who were under contract to their licensed, bonded talent agencies.
Both agents had been provided emails and text messages related to bookings in which St. Clair held herself out as their representative.
Radix malorum est cupiditas
In our report on that lawsuit’s progress, we wrote:
After years of heedless warnings, members of the adult biz appear to be through giving Trinity a pass. And for Trinity, the price of this reversal of fortune is high … and growing.
Pay to play
St. Clair’s defense had been that the ladies booked the offending shoots on their own. Unfortunately for Trinity, the young women were prepared to testify otherwise.
With the women unwilling to back her version of events, in November 2017 Trinity settled with Matrix for a $10,000. At that time we predicted another cash settlement with LA Direct seemed inevitable. And we were right.
One must suppose Trinity is finally getting the message that when you play around with professionals who have the resources and the will to fight, you’ll end up their bitch every time.
