Louisville Escort Allegations Prompt Reviews
An escort’s allegations in a tell-all book that former louisville men’s basketball staffer Andre McGee hired her to provide dancers to strip and have sex with recruits, their fathers and players has prompted a series of investigations.
The Associated Press reports that four investigations have been launched, two this week, to review Katina Powell’s claims in the book, “Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen.”
Powell said that three of her daughters were among those who danced with her in a Louisville campus dormitory.
“We must, as one university, continue doing the work we do to move our university and our community forward,” said Louisville President James Ramsey in a statement.
Powell’s book was released online by a publishing affiliate of the Indianapolis Business Journal. A hardcover version of the book is scheduled for release on Monday.
The book states that McGee hired her and other dancers for 22 shows performed from 2010 to 2014, mostly at Billy Minardi Hall. She said McGee paid her $10,000 during that period.
