INQUIRER: Ashley Dupre, arguably the world’s most famous call girl, is being sued by a North Jersey woman who claims Dupre stole her identity. Dupre’s sexual liasons with Gov. Eliot Spitzer were made public in March and brought down the powerful New York lawmaker. After the scandal broke, the producers of the Girls Gone Wild videos scoured their vaults, found explicit footage of Dupre, and released the film. In the widely distributed video, Dupre identifies herself as “Amber Arpaio.” The camera zooms in on a New Jersey drivers license with Arpaio’s name and picture on it.
Arpaio, 26, who works in a North Jersey medical office, was thunderstruck when she learned of it. “Friends of hers said. ‘You’d never guess what’s on the internet,'” said Arpaio’s attorney, Robert E. Dunn of Morristown who filed the suit July 11 in U.S. District Court in Newark. “She was shocked. Absolutely shocked.” Arpaio is seeking unspecified damages from Dupre, the producers of Girls Gone Wild, and other unnamed parties. The complaint also says Arpaio was subject to invasion of privacy and defamation. Dunn said Dupre and Arpaio were strangers.
“My client doesn’t know her personally,” Dunn said. “She knew something of her at one point in time, years ago from the Shore area.” “Arpaio” is an uncommon name, Dunn said. There is only one “Amber Arpaio” listed in the entire country. “My client had a very private life before this came along,” Dunn said. “Now people are calling her at home…One of things that really disturbs her is if she plugs her name into the internet, all that comes up is porn sites,” he said. “It’s a very upsetting thing.” MORE
