A burlesque dancer who was accused of taking care of a 13-year-old boy and saying that she had ‘dibs’ to his virginity flashed her breasts on a busy city street when faced with a TV crew.
Bethany Edgecombe, who uses the online persona ‘Blondie’, admitted that she sent the Queensland teen sexually explicit messages and nude photos on Instagram when A Current Affair approached this week.
The 20-year-old, who regularly posts provocative photos to her 100,000 followers, started a conversation via a private message after he mentioned her in one of his messages.
When he was confronted with a TV crew in the center of Melbourne, the exotic dancer initially laughed for claims that she cared for the boy, but finally admitted that he had sent him inappropriate messages.
“What would you like to say to this boy’s parents?”, Asked reporter Dan Nolan.
“Thanks, that’s my comment,” she said, lifting her crop top to expose her breasts in the middle of a busy road in broad daylight.
Although Blondie admitted that she had sent the boy sexually explicit messages, she claimed that she did not seriously agree with him.
“Have I ever seen the boy? Have I ever seen the boy or is it just stupidly innocent talking? … That’s how I see it, “she said.
When asked how many other underage teenagers she had sent nude photos, she replied: “It was really only this one boy.”
No charges have been brought against Blondie, but the Queensland police said in a statement that the investigation was ongoing.
Blondie was accused of texting the teen’s nude photos while he was at the movies with his mother.

Text messages show Blondie asking if the boy slips into the bathroom.
“Now … show me what I am doing to you? Sneak away to the bad bad boy. Sneak away and don’t tell your mom, “she wrote.
When Nolan showed the speechless 20-year screenshots of her correspondence, she claimed the messages were old.
“You know I was 18 when I did this,” she said. “It’s like two years ago.”
But it is claimed that the text messages were sent last year.
One of Blondie’s first messages to the boy asked if he was a virgin before she said, “I call dibs about that virginity.”

“Hold that virginity, I will visit your part of the city in a week or two,” she then sent the boy accompanied by a kissing emoji.
The boy answered that he was “sharp” before the exotic dancer urged the boy to keep their plans secret.
“And don’t tell anyone, [I] don’t think you are even legal, “she wrote.
Blondie then asked the boy how old he was, to which he replied that he was 13.
“I really have to be a pedo, because it’s so hot,” she replied.
As the messages continued between the couple, Blondie – who claims to be a law student – made more references to a pedophile.
“Well … I’m officially a pedo,” she wrote. “I didn’t know you were that young … I shouldn’t look after you as much as I did. But I’m not going to stop. ”
In a statement, the boy’s mother said that Blondie was chasing her son, although she knew he was only 13.
“What kind of a sick person does that? How dare she manipulate a child with her bad perverse ways for her own self-gratification, “she said.
The boy told A Current Affair that he initially enjoyed his conversations with Blondie before she became “intrusive.”

“But after a while, she started acting a little crazy! She was intrusive and a little obsessed.
“She said she wanted to take my virginity, but it wasn’t fun anymore, she was weird and I’m not that stupid. I’m not dating 20-year-olds. “
The boy’s family said they had provided all information to the Coomera police on the Gold Coast last year.
The Queensland police have released a statement that “these cases take time to investigate thoroughly, especially when a forensic investigation is required.”
It said the case is still being investigated.
