Oscar De La Hoya admitted to the FBI that he consumed cocaine and alcohol before engaging in sexual activities with two women who allegedly attempted to extort the boxing champ for millions of dollars, and his information landed a woman behind bars.
According to the criminal complaint obtained by The Blast, De La Hoya told FBI investigators on February 9 he met with a woman at his apartment in Pasadena, CA after arranging a date through the dating website, “seekingarrangement.com.” He says that after an hour another woman showed up before the group “consumed alcohol and cocaine,” and then he disrobed and asked the two girls to “perform various acts upon him.”
De La Hoya said he paid each woman $2,000 but they wanted more money. He also claims they took an expensive leather bag as “collateral” before they left his home.
A few weeks after the incident, De La Hoya received a text from an unknown number claiming The Golden Boy was captured in a “2-hour long” video during the sexual encounter and he needed to pay both women $1 million each or the tape would be made public. The FBI then launched an undercover operation and began communicating with the woman, who used the alias “Kathryn.”
Shanna Moakler, De La Hoya’s ex, was also contacted and told the tape would embarrass her and Atiana, the 19-year-old daughter the ex-couple share. Moakler told the FBI she was sent 7 photos of De La Hoya appearing “in the nude and engaging in sexual acts with various foreign objects.”
Their daughter was also sent a message on social media that the people involved needed to get in touch with De La Hoya, and that he had been filmed “intoxicated” and doing “weird stuff.”
Investigators claim they communicated with Kathryn and negotiated a price for the video that reached a value of $600,000 before tracing her to a Fairfield Inn in Ft. Lauderdale and raiding the woman’s room.
Kathryn was arrested on April 14, and transferred into the custody of the U.S. Marshals. The next day she was charged with 5 counts of extortion.
The documents state she admitted to being involved, but said she only agreed to help negotiate a payment for the other two women.
Since the case is being handled out in L.A., we’re told Kathryn is currently being transferred to California.
De La Hoya has admitted to drug and alcohol abuse in the past, and has received treatment for addiction multiple times. He was recently charged with a DUI in 2017.
