Internet Livid After Robert Kraft Allegedly Parties It Up Amid Prostitution Scandal


Just hours after police in Jupiter, Florida, accused New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft of soliciting prostitutes, Kraft was seen in Hollywood attending Oscar parties.

Kraft attended a party put on by billionaire Ronald Perelman Friday night and then attended an event held by billionaire Barry Diller on Saturday, according to the New York Post and other sources.

A source told the New York Post that the guest list at Perelman’s party included some heavyweights.

“‘It was everyone who’s anyone,’ a source said of the guest list that we hear also included Barry Diller, Ron Meyer, Vivi Nevo, Netflix honcho Ted Sarandos and Comcast’s Brian Roberts, along with director ‘SNL’ guru Lorne Michaels, Ron Howard, Jamie Foxx, Pharrell Williams, Spike Lee, Gal Gadot, Don Johnson, Warren Beatty, Sylvester Stallone, John McEnroe and rocker Jimmy Buffett,” the Post article said.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos was also at the party, the Post reported.

Kraft, 77, was charged with two counts of soliciting prostitution at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter on Friday. It was part of a sting operation of an alleged human trafficking operation.

Kraft is expected to be formally charged and arrested today for the two counts of soliciting prostitutes, Yahoo Sports reported. Both are misdemeanor charges.

He is not being accused of charged with anything related to human trafficking.

A spokesperson for Kraft released a statement Friday denying the charges, Yahoo reported: “We categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity. Because it is a judicial matter, we will not be commenting further.”

The NFL released a statement on the matter Monday.

“Our personal conduct policy applies to everyone in the NFL. We will handle this allegation in the same way we would handle any issue under our policy,” the NFL said.

“We are seeking a full understanding of the facts, while ensuring that we do not interfere with an ongoing law enforcement investigation. We will take appropriate action as warranted based on the facts.”
