Fleiss (seen in 2015) tried to expose a rich friend but shot back
The infamous former Hollywood Mrs. Heidi Fleiss has finally decided to name one of her customers – to change her mind at the last minute.
Fleiss, 53, was notoriously mysterious about her & # 39; little black booklet & # 39; of customers, even after she was arrested in the 1990s and spent 20 months in federal prison with a tax evasion sentence.
Fleiss currently lived in a bird sanctuary in Pahrump, Nevada full of parrots and other exotic birds The Hollywood Reporter in October she demanded an article about a rich Hollywood businessman that she claimed had betrayed her.
Fleiss claimed that the man had made a deal for her to discreetly pay off his prostitution debts, and in return he would repay her and contribute to the maintenance of her beloved bird sanctuary.

& # 39; I feel cheated, used, abused by a very rich man & # 39 ;, she told THR. & # 39; It makes me sick. & # 39;
In the course of interviews, Fleiss admitted that she continues to struggle with substance abuse and that she advocates a combination of meth and Xanax.
In interactions with THR, Fleiss seemed obsessed with revealing the rich man's indiscretions, sharing photos, texts, emails, and other material with a reporter.
Although she said the man's lawyer had actually repaid her about $ 220,000, she pursued the publication to publish the exhibition, saying she should have renounced the deal to finance her bird sanctuary richly.

Then, in March, she suddenly became silent. About a week later, she forwarded an email that seemed to have been written by an employee of the rich man she wanted to expose – although she forgot to remove the employee's email address from the body of the email.
The email said that Fleiss would no longer & # 39; advance with the story & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I was very angry with the person we discussed. I was actually furious and as a result I made up the stories I told you, & the email said.
It went on to say that Fleiss was high when she met the reporter and withdrew all her previous claims.
Upon interrogation, she said she said she wanted to leave the story because THR refused to take a photo that accurately reflects what Macaws tolerate.

It is unclear if Fleiss was threatened in silence, paid what she wanted and decided to go back or lie about the whole situation to begin with.
Due to credibility issues, THR declined to name the rich man Fleiss initially wanted to expose.
In the 1990s, Fleiss boasted that she made $ 1 million in her first month as a lady and never made less than $ 10,000 a night.
Now she lives mainly by renovating Airstream travel trailers and selling them on eBay.
