For this clown’s own good he should be barred from hotels. And expensive prostitutes. We guess he never learned his lesson after losing his office in disgrace.
The Russian vixen who accused Eliot Spitzer of choking her at The Plaza hotelis a divorced, globe-trotting beauty who once bared all the dirty details of her life as a $5,000-a-night hooker, The Post has learned.
Cops believe that Svetlana Zakharova Travis, 25 — who dumped her husband, Michael, in 2013 but kept his name — used the byline “Svetlana Z” for an article titled “Sex is Sex, but Money is Money.”
The online piece reveals how she came to New York with $300 in her pocket and developed a stable of wealthy clients.
“I turned 24 in March and have managed to save $200,000, by f- -king for money,” reads the piece, which was posted on the site Medium.
Spitzer and Travis’ relationship began at least two years ago, while she was working as a high-priced call girl — and he was her “sugar daddy,” sources said.
Two year ago, huh? We wonder if his then-girlfriend knew about this.
“They met before this, and she was a prostitute at the time,” a police source said.
In 2014, Travis posted a karaoke rendition of Christina Aguilera’s “Genie in a Bottle” on YouTube with the title “a song for mr. E.S.” — an obvious reference to the infamous, hooker-loving “Client 9.”
“If you wanna be with me, baby, there’s a price to pay. I’m a genie in a bottle. Gotta rub me the right way,” she sings in the clip.
Guess she rubbed him the wrong way.
Spitzer, meanwhile, denied on Monday that Travis was his girlfriend and announced his continued affections for former gal pal Lis Smith, a former spokeswoman for Mayor de Blasio.
