Ben Affleck & Bruce Willis' Call-Girl Troubles

Posted Wednesday February 28, 2007 6:01 PM GMT

Not only did they star together in the movie 'Armageddon', but Ben Affleck and Bruce Willis might have something a little more embarrassing in common. Both actors have been included in a list of alleged patrons of a call-girl service run by the former world-renowned madam, Jody "Babydol" Gibson.

Due in stores Thursday February 29th, her new autobiography, Secrets of a Hollywood Super Madam, alleges that both Affleck and Willis were patrons of her call-girl service before she was arrested eight years ago.

Gibson claims to reveal the details of Affleck's "steamy night with a hot blonde" as well as a "wild time" involving Willis, in a snippet from her Website.

"This book is about my life servicing the rich and famous…and their sex, sex, sex!" Gibson wrote in the introduction to her memoir.

Other alleged patrons on her list of clients included Jim Belushi, Gary Busey, Tommy Lasorda, Don Simpson, and Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Willis and Lasorda said through their lawyers that they never used Gibson's service and had no idea why their names appeared in her records. They accused Gibson of exploiting their fame to boost her book sales.

"I have never heard of this woman and don't know why she would accuse me of something like this," a statement from Lasorda read. "But if she prints these lies, I intend to sue."

Willis' attorney, Marty Singer, said: "The story is a complete fabrication. Bruce doesn't know this woman. He's never even spoken to her."

On the other hand, Jones said he might have used Gibson's escort service. "It's possible," he said. "I crossed paths with her back then. She was a madam, but if I remember right, she wanted to be a singer in a band."

Authorities never prosecuted any of Gibson's clients, and there is no independent evidence that the men she listed actually patronized her service.

According to E!, Gibson used the name "Sasha" in her role as a madam and started her California Dreamin' escort service in 1986 while trying to launch her career as a pop star.

"By the time she was arrested in 1999, she had expanded her business to 16 states and Europe, and was charging customers between $500 and $3,000 for personal encounters with the more than 300 women she employed, among them porn stars and models," E! reports.

"She was convicted in April 2000 of running an international prostitution ring and served 22 months in Chowchilla, one of California's toughest prisons, where she suffered a fractured skull after being beaten by fellow inmates," reports Sarah Hall.

Since her 2002 release from prison, Gibson has continued her efforts to break into the entertainment industry, launching a clothing line and shopping the film rights to her life story. The movie deal will probably hinge on how well the book does.
