She had sexual relations with a very important man in that family. He’s not as important as his brother but very important. We’ll call him the “SIDE RULER”. His past indiscretions in sex and business have been hard for the family to cover up. He publicly dated porn stars, and gleefully procured prostitutes -even while married. As such, he’s been a nightmare for his country’s security services. The ruling family has had many occasions to lock down the media and cover up various offenses of their family members. But this time would not be so easy; since it didn’t even occur on their home turf.
When the “Side Ruler” began to party with Mari and Monster, it wasn’t only the sex — but the business deals. Ruler has always tried to hustle a buck, and to party with all these billionaires was irresistible. So while sexually abusing teen girls, he was also putting together very rewarding business deals. All structured through proxies and shell companies. For the other elites, it was a grand chance to hob-nob with a member of the ruling family. Though he was “cash poor” his family still held massive holdings and massive influence around the world.
Mari had been having trysts with him for years. She and Ruler were known to party with others, male and female and it never drew much attention until Mari and Monster’s actions began to draw heat. In the words of one member of the ruling family who knows all about it — the act of trying to erase the Ruler’s links to Mari & Monster: “is like trying to get the toothpaste back in the tube.”
So a member of the Ruler’s security services was appointed to try and bury or handle the entire situation for Side Ruler. This guy — this go-between/middle man — knew instantly that Mari was the weak link. She had much to lose, and could be compromised. So they focused on her, and getting her in line. While doing surveillance on her, they discovered Mari’s reaching out to the Russian oligarch.
The Russian was friends with the ruling family too, for other reasons. Mostly diplomatic or to secure his visas and finances in that country. He “donated” nearly a billion dollars of his fortune to various fronts that always swung back to the ruling family. So when the middle man contacted the Russian for a “favor”, he knew that he could be in deep shit; out in the cold; if he were to not oblige.
Since he’s on very thin ice with other Western nations already? He said he’d do what he can to help the family. So he’s allowed the intelligence service to hear every word he and Mari discuss. No matter how painful it can be for him — he knows the ruling family will protect him, and re-pay the favor. At least he hopes they will and will keep him out of Mari’s shit-storm. The last thing he needs is legal system attention.
Back when Monster and Mari first began to come under the spotlight for their crimes, they turned to a “dream team” of the best attorneys they could find. This was lead by a lawyer (Lawyer 2 mentioned previously) who had done more than just be friends with Monster and Mari — he was a participant. This guy had repped Monster, who was his pal, for years. His image and legal community standing was beyond reproach and as a fighter for justice.
Mari had another friend (also mentioned earlier) who was an elite, wealthy, powerful lady we called “Princess”. Her family was political royalty and not just powerful but maybe the most powerful in the halls of lawmaking and justice. Princess had a carefully crafted image of good deeds and noble causes she gave herself to. As did her then-husband, another political legacy himself. So Princess knew how the game was played, and how the wheels were greased.
Princess found herself in trouble a few years back. When she did — she turned to a bulldog attorney who fixed not just her legal problems, but her spin control. His main strategy was to attack the victims and undermine the cops and prosecutors. In fact this wasn’t the first time Princess had to rely on that (or any) legal bulldog to get her out of trouble.
A couple of years before her public arrest for DUI, the Princess had another accident. That one was a single-car accident with no victim and it all “went away” before any charges were filed. Why? Her attorney in that case was a trusted legal scholar who knew the local prosecutor in the area of the wreck. A few calls, a few laughs, and it was gone. No victim, no harm, no foul. That legal scholar is the same one we call “Lawyer 2”.
Several years before THAT wreck, however, Princess got herself in an even earlier jam. (Her first of the three we’ve mentioned — you’d think she would’ve learned). She had another wreck, while she was very intoxicated. She was married at that time, and her hubby’s name carried as much weight as her own in their home state. But Princess had rear-ended a car while wasted.
The car she hit belonged to a teenager who was poor and had a record of arrests. That was the FIRST TIME the Princess found out about the legal bulldog. He was called in by her (and her hubby’s) friend — the legal scholar (aka Lawyer 2). The bulldog attorney attacked and threatened the poor teenage kid into submission. By the time they were done with the kid and the kid’s family? They merely accepted an agreement to cover the repairs to the kid’s car. There was never even a police report or any trace of it in the legal system. Both the bulldog and the legal scholar made sure.
So when Princess ended up in two more jams (her next DUI wreck; then her more public DUI wreck) she naturally turned to her attack dog lawyer, assisted by the legal scholar lawyer. And so it was that when Mari asked her politically-connected, powerful friend, Princess, for ideas on how she and Monster could save their asses? Naturally Princess referred the same attorneys.
Their track records of “attacking the victim” and using investigators to “background” the accusers, detectives, and prosecutors was legendary. Those that could not be bought off, or who were not friends willing to trade favors — were threatened, attacked, or scared off. Both of these lawyers would create such chaos; cross-suits; and then spin so much politically-motivated bullshit that it would cloud the entire civil and criminal landscape around Monster and Mari.
This was what made these attorneys so feared.
They even got the District Attorney in the jurisdiction in New York to go to bat for Monster to make his punishment EASIER. So brazenly, that even the judge hearing the case admonished the A.D.A. for arguing FOR the Monster! (The very man the ADA was supposed to be prosecuting). But oddly enough, nobody seems to be looking into the political ties of that D.A. to Monster and Mari either. Maybe someday, somebody will. (Follow the money as they say).
Meanwhile, out in Hollywood, a certain A-Lister is leaving for a long vacation. He’s the same A-Lister who found himself a guest at one of Monster and Mari’s parties in that foreign country. It figures since he was friends with the dictator of that country. But the A-Lister (who is either a director or actor or even maybe a little of both), never took part in the sexual abuse. He was more interested in the drugs and networking. He also was interested in his habit of documenting his travels.
The A-lister had, in fact, quite a collection of his home videos. Some of these are historical and others are very private. He always planned to keep them “sealed” until after his death, then have a filmmaker assemble them once unsealed. Back when he visited the estate to party with Mari and Monster, he took his small camera and recorded the festivities. Until it was suggested to him that he stop immediately. But he had already recorded many of the elite, famous, and powerful guests and some of their partying.
What he recorded was not so much anything of a criminal nature, but was actual proof of people who were there — and who they were with. It is proof that contradicts statements of VERY powerful people who deny being at Monster & Mari’s “parties” (or only knowing them briefly years ago). It would be enough to support many of the charges by showing visual proof of who was with who.
In short, it may not be a smoking gun, but it’s a helluva loaded one.
