Michael Bernback, a former contestant on ‘Millionaire Matchmaker,’ has been charged with raping three women. Michael denies he sexually assaulted them, claiming each of the reported victims agreed to engage in the alleged violent and kinky sex!

When Michael Bernback, 62, appeared on Millionaire Matchmaker in 2011, he reportedly wanted to date ladies younger than him. He now stands accused of raping at least three women, all in their 20s. Michael reportedly claims that the sex with the alleged victims wasn’t rape because they each supposedly agreed to the reported sexual encounters!

Michael says the sex between him and the women was completely consensual, according to legal documents obtained by TMZ. Michael reportedly met all three women on “sexual hook-up websites,” and that two of the women he allegedly raped knew they would be engaging in bondage and/or anal sex. In one sexual encounter, Michael reportedly said one woman allowed herself to be tied up while he allegedly “urinate[d] into her mouth.”

The documents also reportedly say that all three women admitted they were “looking for sexual liaisons.” One of the women reportedly told the police she was aware that other women would be involved in the reported sexual encounter with Michael.

The former Millionaire Matchmaker contestant, who appeared on the show in 2011, was arrested on Aug. 13 at his Sherman Oaks, California home, reports CBS News. Michael allegedly drugged one woman before sexually assaulting her. When he was arrested, police reportedly found MDMA, GHB and cocaine in his home, reports Daily Mail. He was also booked for possession.

On the show, Michael claimed he was worth more than “$8 million dollars” and owned ten homes. He owns a golf pro shop in Encino, California and his website reportedly claimed he was one of the original co-creators of the Chippendales male dance troupe. However, one of the original members denies this claim to CBS news.
