LOS ANGELES—According to numerous Spanish-language news reports, Interpol is seeking the arrest of Lupe Fuentes in connection with a child pornography investigation into the activities of her ex-husband, Pablo Lapiedra.
The investigation into Lapiedra began in late 2008 when the Technological Investigation Brigade (BIT) of Spain, Colombia’s National Police and Interpol uncovered a teenage prostitution ring in which one of its members, a 16-year-old Colombian girl, appeared in pornographic films for Lapiedra, according to ColombiaReports.com.
The multi-agency investigation into Lapiedra was prompted by a complaint from a school in Medellin, Colombia, after it surfaced that one of its students, the 16-year-old girl, appeared in a porn video. According to ElPeriodico.com, Lapiedra was identified as the cameraman in the videos.
The scenes in question appeared on PabloLapiedra.com, Zuleidy.com and ZuleidyLapiedraStar.com, according to ElPais.com—sites registered to his former wife, Colombian citizen Zuleidy Piedrahita, aka Lupe Fuentes.
Fuentes, a white-hot sensation in the U.S. adult film industry and current Wicked Pictures contract star, is divorced from Lapiedra and now lives in the U.S.
According to the AFP, the student testified, “Zuleidy was by colleges in Medellín and Bello, offering the students to participate in films.
“Before appearing in the video [the girl] was made to sign some papers which have a different name and pretended to be older.”
Lapiedra was arrested late last week in Spain. According to WRadio.com.co, he deceived the girls by telling them the videos he wanted them to appear in were for a “casting call” and then provided them with false documentation so they could pass for legal age.
A Colombian judge will decide on Monday if Lapiedra will be extradited to Spain.
At press time Fuentes’ official site, ILoveLupe.com, was offline.
Fuentes had not responded to a request for comment at post time.
I do understand and follow current news events. I’d rather watch news networks than sitcoms or dramatic television series. I also have a political science degree. I have been criticized for not blogging about pollictics and have had people imply that I’m not intelectual enough. But here’s the thing- I’m a (ex) pornstar. I’m in the business of entertaining masses of people. If people don’t agree with my opinon they may get offended. People will hate others over this. Look to the examples of Madonna or Ted Nugent.
I can tell you this much. Nither Republicans or Democrats are supportive of the porn industry. On the Right you have people that feel strongly on family values and religion. And on the Left you have feminists and people who like lots of industry regulation. That pretty much sums it up.
Another thing I can tell you is stay informed. Regardless of your political opinion watch all the news networks including CNN, MSNBC, and FOX. The news you see is not reliable as it is swayed by the opinon of the writer. So if you can try to watch CSPAN to see what it really going on.
Even though the political parties don’t like us it is important to be fully informed. This will be the last time I talk to you guys about pollitics though.
From the New York Post:
A rare, so-called supermoon was expected to be seen Saturday, a partial optical illusion that occurs when the moon is full and at its closest distance to Earth.
At 3:00pm Eastern Time on Saturday, the moon will be closer to Earth than it has been over the past 19 years, at just 221,565 miles away.
The closest the moon usually gets to Earth — the perigee — is about 226,179 miles. At its farthest — the apogee — the moon is 252,276 miles away.
When the perigee moon lies close to the horizon, it can appear much larger than usual as a result of an optical trick, known as the “moon illusion.”
During its peak Saturday, the supermoon is expected to appear around eight percent bigger and much brighter than it normally does.
For centuries, the supermoon was regarded as a bad omen and blamed for causing natural disasters. However, astronomers said there was no link between the March 2011 supermoon and Japan’s earthquake and tsunami March 11.
“If you try hard enough, you can associate any disaster in history to any celestial object,” Australian astronomy writer Dave Reneke said. “The moon has come close to the Earth thousands of times in the past with no ill effects.”

Female performer writes: Who is Charles Taylor? See more at http://www.StopCharlesTaylor.com
Charles Taylor (real name Michael Chapin) is a forty something dork. This guy couldn’t legitimately get a woman to screw him if his life depended on it. Charles (as he promotes himself in the adult industry) is a loser who preys on unsuspecting females interested in getting into the Adult Industry.
Why do I know this? He tried the same moves on me when I agreed to meet with him in April 2007. I called an ad Charles placed on Craig’s List for models.
When I called him, he told me he was the main agent for the area and he had connections with every producer and company in Tampa and Miami. Looking at him and listening to what he was saying should have been my first clue. Not only did I not think he knew the producers and companies he was talking about, it was very difficult to carry on a conversation with him.
I met him at Bennigan’s on Dale Mabry next to the Days Inn. During our conversation he said he needed pics of me to show his contacts. I understood this and not having sent decent photos to him I agreed asking for copies I could send out also.
When went to a porn store called Fantasy Land located at we went into a pool (game) room. He then asked me to take my clothes off and as I started to do this for photos, he told me he needed to screw me to see if I was quality enough to send to his contacts. I told him no and he said if I didn’t fuck him he wouldn’t introduce me to any producers or companies.
I then raised my voice and said louder, I’m not gonna fuck you! About 30 sec. later the door opened and a guy from the place asked him to leave. I was first shocked by what happened and then pissed off. I couldn’t believe that this asshole had just tried to pull a casting couch on me.
As soon as I got home I started doing some research on Mr. Taylor. It seems he has been pulling this kind of shit for quite some time. I made some posts, create a website and received many emails from other ladies.
It seems there are many females who also had the displeasure of being sexually harassed by Charles (Michael Chapin) Taylor. One interesting thing I found hard to believe was that Charles discovered Porn Star Jasmine Tame. In researching his sites and 1 video (he claims to be a porn star) I contacted Jasmine through her MySpace page. I had seen a video where she performed with him and wanted to see if he pulled the same crap with her. Bingo!
She did however make my day by telling me she kicked him out of her car while on the interstate. She said he wanted her to drive to shoots, pay him and fuck him. She said he just pissed her of so much she wanted him out of her car right then. Go Girl!
I also received many emails from other women who had the same unfortunate experience.
Here are a few:
Hello, my name is Nicole S. and in March of this year Charles pulled the same tricks with me. He would not take me home unless I had sex with him I was terrified. Please keep up the good work you are doing to get this sex predator off the streets and take advantage of young girls as myself.
My name is Jenny and I am a 37 yr old female. My friend and I went to Charles for an audition. He wanted both of us to sleep with him to get us started in the industry. We refused, and Charles said he would not refer either of us to companies cuz we wouldn’t sleep with him. My friend and I went to Miami to work so we wouldn’t fall prey to assholes like Charles.
I know all about this loser…I had the unfortunate misfortune to meet him, A few years ago. When he has a modeling agency that was called something else..gosh i cant remember the name of it..I think it started with a “t” good for you exposing him. He is a big loser.
As you can see Charles has used his casting couch “hostage for sex” style antics many times before. In fact Charles has gone so far as to leave girls stranded in Miami with no way home because they would not fuck him. What an asshole!
Charles is the ultimate scum in a male dominated industry. I found that this guy has over 20 different website names that mostly redirect to AdultTalentWanted.com .

Heather Pink !!!
how are you ?
your arch nemesis Charles Taylor pasted away in October 2010 of an accidental drug over dose of oxy cotton and sleeping pills according to some of his close personal friends…
i just thought you should know since he was always giving you BS for no reason at all..
Charles Taylor was hardly anyone I gave much thought to although he tried to cause some problems and blamed me for when he got thrown out an industry party.
