Instagram star counter-sues Las Vegas timeshare mogul for $2BN claiming he sexually assaulted her

An Instagram star with nearly two million OnlyFans followers has countersued her mogul ex-boyfriend, claiming he sexually assaulted her on the first day they met and bought her $70,000 worth of Louboutins on Rodeo Drive the next day as a ‘peace offering’.

Multimillionaire Las Vegas timeshare tycoon Stephen J Cloobeck, 59, sued his Canadian ex-girlfriend Stefanie Gurzanski, 26, back in March and claimed she secretly took nude photos in his mansions and jets to sell on OnlyFans, where she goes by Baby G. 

Gurzanski also is well known for her racy photos on Instagram, where she has 1.8million followers.

Cloobeck also accused her of duping him out of $1.3million to lavish her with expensive gifts.

Six months later Gurzanski has counter-sued over claims her ex, who she dated for only five months, defamed and sexually assaulted her, according to Page Six.

The lawsuit said that in July 2020, on the first day the two met in Cloobeck’s home for lunch, an acquaintance left the pair alone and ‘Cloobeck, without permission or consent, proceeded to stand up, forcibly grab Ms Gurzanski, pull up her dress and put his head between her legs,’ as reported by Page Six. 

‘The following day, Cloobeck contacted Ms Gurzanski and told her that he wanted to take her shopping on Rodeo Drive as a peace offering,’ the suit added.

Gurzanski said her ex would take her on shopping trips and spend 'thousands upon thousands of dollars,' according to court documents

An attorney for Cloobeck told DailyMail.com that the billionaire ‘never forced himself on her (or anyone else)’, claiming that Gurzanski had ‘contradicted’ herself in sworn testimony.

‘Cloobeck has only engaged in consensual sexual relationships and has never assaulted nor battered anyone, including Gurzanski. He treated her as a queen,’ Patricia Glaser of Glaser Weil Fink Howard Avchen & Shapiro said.

‘Her claims in the cross complaint are far-fetched even for the serial liar she has proven to be.’

The lawyer said Gurzanski’s cross-complaint is ‘filled with fantastical lies, delusional accusations and revisionist history’ and ‘a brazen attempt to extort additional cash’ from her ex.

In the countersuit, documents state that Cloobeck ‘chose the stores that they went to’ and when they arrived at a Christian Louboutin shop, he ‘instructed the store manager to pick out shoes for Ms Gurzanski’.

When the manager returned with shoes Cloobeck and Gurzanski then said ‘yes’ or ‘no’. According to Page Six: ‘In the end Cloobeck… purchased and gifted approximately $70,000 worth of shoes to Ms Gurzanski.

Throughout the rest of the shopping trip, Cloobeck purchased thousands upon thousands of dollars of gifts for Ms Gurzanski.’ 

After Cloobeck, who sold his Diamond Resorts company for $2billion in 2016, ‘acted kindly and with courtesy’ towards Gurzanksi, she ‘convinced herself that he had become a new man,’ the court documents said.

It also noted that the model was ‘confused and disoriented’ by Cloobeck, who was a ‘self-proclaimed man of almost limitless wealth and political power’.

Referring to the incident on the day they met, the suit added: ‘Unfortunately for Ms Gurzanski, she was not prepared to deal with emotions and consequences of Cloobeck’s vile act, and like many abused individuals who do not believe that they could have been in such a situation, she did her best to rationalize and excuse what happened.’

According to Page Six Cloobeck also demanded Gurzanski stop appearing on OnlyFans.

Gurzanski is also suing him for defamation after he allegedly wrote a letter to her apartment building manager falsely claiming she is ‘an illegal sex worker’ when their relationship went south. 

She decided to break up with him in December 2020 over the nagging and, as stated in papers filed to California Supreme Court, he then harassed her with phone calls and texts threatening to destroy her life by bankrupting her with lawsuits. 

Cloobeck also allegedly claimed he could call in political favors to derail the Canadian’s attempts to get a green card.

The businessman stopped at nothing and later issued a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court that leveled explosive allegations that Gurzanski was a ‘con artist’ who bilked him for $1.3million in gifts over the course of their relationship.

Cloobeck accused Gurzanski of tricking him into believing she was a legitimate fashion model. 

But in reality, he claimed, she made her living selling pornography on the subscription site OnlyFans, using his lavish lifestyle behind his back as a backdrop for her X-rated shoots – including while his teenage daughter was in the house. 

Cloobeck argued that the pornographic photos ‘clearly depict and identify’ his property in an invasion of his privacy, and have caused ‘irreparable harm’ to his reputation as a businessman and political donor. 

‘She posed in the bathroom of his jet, in his private suite at The Mansion at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, in his bedrooms, on a yacht he rented, and anywhere else where she could sneak a photo to peddle on the internet,’ the complaint stated. 

The mogul said that he believed Gurzanski wanted to pursue a lifelong relationship after she ‘professed her love’ for him but that all along she was just using him for his money. 

Cloobeck, who has an estimated net worth of $100million, met the much-younger Guzanski through a mutual friend in the summer of 2020 soon after splitting with his wife of 22 years. The two seemed to ‘hit it off immediately,’ according to court documents. 

The infatuated Cloobeck ‘spent nearly every waking moment with’ the young model and splurged to buy her jewelry, lavish parties, private jet trips as well as paying her lease for a luxury apartment in Beverly Hills,’ according to court documents. 

All the while, the smitten Cloobeck said he was splashing out on extravagant gifts for the young model. In the lawsuit he filed earlier this year he claimed when that wasn’t enough, she ran up tens of thousands in unauthorized charges on his credit cars.

In one instance, Cloobeck said he gave her a credit card to make a $2,120 purchase at Louis Vuitton, but alleged she ran amok with the plastic, racking up $26,323.80 in charges for designer items.

Other expenses charged to Cloobeck’s cards included shopping sprees at Sephora, Richemont jewelry and Dior, the lawsuit claimed.

‘Gurzanski also used Cloobeck’s credit card to purchase over 100 bikinis and items of lingerie, which she then used as props in her pornographic OnlyFans posts,’ the complaint stated.

In December 2020 alone, she charged more than $72,500 to Cloobeck’s credit card – and even splashed out $1,800 on caviar after the mogul dumped her, according to the suit.

In total, Cloobeck alleged that Gurzanski racked up $185,000 in unauthorized charges on his American Express account.

But his gifts to her – authorized charges – were just as lavish. For her birthday party at the El Dorado Beach Club in Cabo San Lucas, Cloobeck said he spent $7,000 on caviar and bought 80 bottles of Domaine Ott wine and 12 bottles of Don Julio 1942 tequila.

He said other party expenses included $13,000 worth of ‘swag bags’ for her friends, which each included 10 customized items embossed with Gurzanski’s photos and nickname ‘Baby G’ plus $30,000 worth of Chanel handbags gifted to her and her five friends.

Other gifts from Cloobeck to the young model included a $200,000 Richard Mille watch, a $40,000 Audemars Piguet watch and a $40,000 diamond-encrusted Cartier ‘Love’ bracelet, he said.

When the timeshare titan did finally discover Gurzanski’s OnlyFans pursuits, he said that she responded to his request to take down all images of his properties with a demand that he buy her a $7million mansion and give her $2million in cash, which he declined.

Cloobeck’s suit called Gurzanski a ‘cunning fraudster,’ and sought to recover the funds and items that Gurzanski obtained from him in the course of her relationship.
