According to Ming Pao Daily News, Martin Yu Xu is suing Nalwa Holdings, the parent company of Royal Court Escorts, to recoup the A$3.7 million (RM11.2 million) which he claimed he paid to have sex with Hollywood beauties.

In documents filed at the New South Wales Supreme Court, Xu claimed that an agent at Royal Court Escorts told him it would provide “female escorts of international standing for the provision of sexual services”.

He added that he could rendezvous with the women anywhere in the world, as long as he paid for their airfares and lodging, Ming Pao said, quoting reports in the Herald Sun and Daily Mail.

“It was agreed that if (Xu) paid the sum of A$3.7 million, (the agency) would provide Megan Fox, Candice Swanepoel and Angelababy as escorts for sexual services,” Mr Xu’s statement of claim said.

It is not suggested that the women are escorts.

Xu said he made partial payments until the entire sum, which included an alleged A$24,000 “joining fee”, was paid in August 2014. But he said he never met the three at rendezvous spots in China.

He said the agency agreed to send Angelababy in September 2014, but “the person was not provided”.

The China-born star who is married to actor Huang Xiaoming and currently starring in Independence Day: Resurgence said through her manager that she is consulting her lawyers as to how to handle the matter.
