Katina Powell, a former escort, claims she helped the University of Louisville throw ‘sex parties’ for its basketball team. She says that the school even paid her to provide strippers and prostitutes for the players! Here are 5 things to know about Katina and this shocking college basketball sex scandal.

Katina Powell is calling foul on the University of Louisville. The 42-year-old former-escort published a scathing tell-all book, Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen, claiming that the school threw “sex parties” for its basketball players. With former players reportedly confirming Katina’s allegations, learn more about the woman who says she was the school-sponsored pimp!

1. Katina worked with University of Louisville for four years.

From 2010 to 2014, Katina attended more than 20 alleged sex parties in the university’s dorms, according to Heavy.com. These parties were arranged by the school’s former director of basketball operations, Andre McGee, as a reward for players or as incentives for potential players to sign with the school. By the end, Katina claims she felt like she was part of the university’s “recruitment team!”

2. She started as an escort but turned into a pimp.

During the second stripping party for a potential recruit, Andre allegedly asked Katina if some of the strippers would have sex for money. “Andre was the one who always had the money … made it rain,” Katina claims, according to USA Today. And it was him that helped turn Katina from an escort into a pimp.

3. Katina’s reportedly brought her underage daughters to these sex parties.

Katina’s two daughters allegedly followed their mom into the family business when they were still minors. Katina claims in her book that her girls, Lindsay and Rod Ni Powell, were 15 and 17 when she allegedly brought them to the University’s sex parties, reports The Courier-Journal. Katina has reportedly taken back those claims, according to WLKY. She said that “everyone [she] dealt with was grown” and could “make their own decisions.”

4. She made over $10,000 for her services.

Her daughters only reportedly made $100 for allegedly having sex with players, according to the New York Post. But, Katina made a lot more. She reportedly took home over 10 grand. She reportedly kept track of every detail in journals, even saving text conversations between her and Andre. Katina then used her journals to write her revealing tell-all.

5. What she claims is reportedly true!

Five former Louisville basketball players reportedly confirmed Katina’s claims, reports ESPN. These former players said they attended parties on the University’s campus that featured strippers and one claimed he had sex with a dancer after Andre paid her. “It was crazy,” the source said. “It was like I was in a strip club.” The authorities are now investigating these allegations, according to Slate.
