THE tearful daughter of Scots “Manhattan Madam” Anna Gristina claims her mum was running a dating service for lonely men.
Suzanna Pak will appear on a US chat show today to defend Gristina, from Kirkliston, Edinburgh, against claims she ran a multi-million-dollar vice ring.
In a recorded interview, Suzanna tells host Anderson Cooper she would have known if her mum was running a brothel.
She says: “Obviously, these men were looking for discretion and that’s why they paid so much money to find somebody to talk to, to take out to dinner.
“I am 24 years old. If she had anything to hide, she would have said something to me by now.”
Gristina, 44, denies promoting prostitution in New York.
