    (Published Tuesday, April 23, 2019)

    A woman accused of illegally performing a sex act on Robert Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots, at a Jupiter, Florida day spa, has been arrested.

    Shen Mingbi had a hearing in Palm Beach County on Tuesday, a day after she was arrested. Through a Mandarin interpreter, she was ordered to surrender her passport and stay away from massage parlors.

    Mingbi allegedly performed a sex act on Kraft at Orchids of Asia Day spa on Jan. 19. Kraft allegedly paid Mingbi and another spa worker, 39-year-old Lei Wang, in cash afterwards, according to WPTV.

    Police say the incident was caught on a hidden surveillance camera that was installed on Jan. 17 as part of a "sneak and peak" search warrant. Mingbi's arrest report alleges the camera caught her performing an illegal sex act on at least six other men, including former Citigroup President John Havens.
