(ATLANTA, GA) -- Update #2 for 6/19/01. Witness says on her first night at the club she had sex with Dennis Rodman.
Amanda Pappas, 22 continued on the stand today. Pappas said defendant Jacklyn Bush invited her to the club and into a semi private room when she saw Dennis Rodman. Rodman immediately began to remove her shirt. Pappas said she wasn't even an employee yet, since she didn't have her dancer's permit. Pappas said Rodman handed her a stack of "Gold Bucks". Pappas and Bush that evening had sex with Rodman in his hotel room at the Hyatt in the Buckhead district Atlanta. Note: Rodman is not accused of anything in the trial, and he has declined comment so far on the proceedings.
Pappas, who just so happens to be Bush's former lover has testified that acts of prostitution were performed inside the club, and that Gold Club Owner Steven Kaplan knew about it, and just didn't want it leaked out. Pappas said that the sex acts were paid by customers in cash or in the "Gold Bucks" which customers could by at the club with their credit cards. One of the allegations against the club is for credit card fraud. (Over billing of customer's credit cards.)
