How blonde escort Simone Farrow with dreams of becoming a pop star was found with piles of crystal meth

A failed wannabe pop star turned to drug smuggling to fund her lifestyle – leaving behind a trail of men she used for bail money.

Simone Farrow was jailed for six-and-a-half years in 2016 after she was caught with piles of meth worth thousands of dollars in her West Hollywood apartment.

The former Penthouse Pet had mailed the drugs to Australian buyers disguised as ‘bath products’ or ‘small fountain kits’.

Court documents revealed that between February 2009 and October 2010 $580,000 was deposited in Farrow’s bank account, according to the Sunday Telegraph.

Also found in the raid were notebooks full of bizarre pop songs about sex and drugs, including one titled Let’s Bounce, Bounce, Bounce.

Lyrics for another song read: ‘I’m just a whore, your dancefloor whore, just a whore, your whore’.

Her conviction was the end of a downward spiral she claimed began when she became a teenage prostitute to pay for exclusive private schools.

She claimed her mother Sylvana Antoinette Cleaver pushed her in to the sex industry because she couldn’t afford fees at SCEGGS Darlinghurst and St Hilda’s on the Gold Coast.

Farrow, born Simone Cheung, claimed her clients included politicians and other influential people – a knack for which she carried on later.

In 1998, Farrow and her bodybuilder boyfriend Brett Boyd were setting up an erotica website when a mail bomb meant for her blew up in his face.

Boyd had his thumb and eye blow away. His face was so badly disfigured it wrecked his modelling career and contributed to his 2008 suicide.

Farrow headed to Los Angeles with dreams of pop superstardom but her promoter  Nick O’Donovan was only able to get her gigs where she paid venues to perform.

‘I observed Farrow was very flashy and a needy person who thought she was going to be the next big hit as a recording artist,’ he told police.

She eventually stopped turning up to bookings and he gave up on her.

When she returned to Australia in 2009, Australian Federal Police were there to arrest her as she stepped off a flight from Hawaii.

During her case, two separate men put up huge sums of money for her bail, only to have her skip town and leave them holding the bag.

First was Sydney barrister Anthony Renshaw who she referred to as a ‘father figure’ and called ‘dad’ or ‘Toto’.

‘No one will ever be as close to me as Tony Renshaw. He has picked up the pieces for 25 years of my life. He is like the mother and father I never had,’ she told a court.

They met years earlier through her mother and he arranged some escort clients for her, and to secure her bail he put up $50,000.

Farrow pleaded guilty to ­importing methamphetamine in September 2016 and was sentenced to a minimum six-and-a-half years jail

But she fled to the Gold Coast and he had to beg a court in 2012 for his money back, which he eventually had refunded.

Next was Sydney doctor Joseph Grech, who put up $100,000.

Another man in her orbit met an even worse fate – Xander Rian, the ‘accounts director’ for her drug operation.

U.S. police arranged to interview him five days after Farrow’s arrest, but the next day he didn’t show up and was found dead in an apparent suicide.

She is eligible for parole in February.
