3 Playboy bunnies were jailed for 24 hours in Mexico while they were doing their volunteer service in Mexico.
Three Playboy Playmates recently went down to Mexico to volunteer their “services” at a music festival, where they sipped bubbly and celebrated each other’s company. It was all fun and games until the cops showed up and discovered one huge problem before taking the playmates to Stupidville, and rightfully so.
American Lauryn Elaine, Frenchwoman Marie Brethenoux and Turkish citizen Elif Celik were reportedly ‘mingling’ at an exclusive party when they were pounced on by the officers.
The three models had been drinking champagne at Playboy’s Music Fest in Merida on June 30, when immigration officers stormed the event in a midnight raid and detained them, Elaine told Fox News.
According to the New York Post, the trio were arrested by immigration police and tossed in a fabulous Mexican jail after being accused of working the Playboy Music Fest in Merida, Mexico, on June 30, 2017, without work visas. The models tried to explain to the police that they were simply “volunteering” their services at the event and not being paid, but they were still arrested and taken to jail. This is when things took a turn for the worse for the bunnies.
According to them, they were detained for 24 hours and had to beg for food and water.
“We came to Mexico to celebrate each other’s company and to gain publicity with our fans by coming to these parties in Meridá and Cancun,” Elaine said.
“Around midnight, immigration came and busted into our party when all of us girls were sitting at our VIP tables enjoying champagne and music.
“They then rounded us up into a large room and weeded us all out by checking everyone’s IDs.”
She said that the three were not being paid for the event.
“We do not get paid for these events so we were wrongfully taken because they abused their authority and thought they could shake down Playboy Mexico by taking us,” she said.
She added they were put “in a holding cell cage for almost 24 hours, and we had to beg for food and water.
“Luckily our Playboy Mexico family was extremely quick on taking action.”
Playboy Mexico described the incident as a “misunderstanding”.
There was no response from Mexican authorities.
The trio took to social media to describe their treatment and relief at being released.
“Even after detention in Merida nothing can stop us!” Brethenoux wrote on Instagram.
“Happy to be out!!!” Elaine wrote. “Being in Mexican Immigration detainment was AWFUL!! They were so mean!”
