Bombing suspect Cesar A. Sayoc Jr. never worked for the real Chippendales, as he has claimed to a judge, and instead worked at a cheap knockoff of the male dance revue.
TMZ.com reports that Sayoc worked for Gold Productions, a touring company of male dancers that have used the Chippendales name and been sued on multiple occasions by the real company.
A Chippendales spokesman also told TMZ.com they had no idea who Sayoc was before he was identified Friday as the primary suspect in the recent string of explosive devices sent to enemies of President Donald Trump.
Court records reveal that Sayoc was on probation for grand theft and battery in 2014. Because of legal history, he asked a judge to approve out-of-state trouble for what he claimed was his job as a road manager for Chippendales.
The order was approved, even though he wasn’t working with Chippendales at the time, the company told TMZ.com.
