Executive summary: Charged Hugh Grant for fellatio

Divine Brown first turned to prostitution in the early 1990s, when she was unable to pay her electric bill. In 1995, she sold oral sex to Hugh Grant. Police interrupted with a knock on the drivers' window, and both Brown and Grant were arrested. In the immediate aftermath of her highly-publicized arrest, Brown's business was brisk. "All my customers wanted the same special that Hugh Grant got," Brown has said, "but they had to pay a bit more than he did." By the time Grant came across her, she was a regular worker in the same neighborhood where Eddie Murphy later picked up a prostitute.

She appeared with Ron Jeremy in a low-budget porn film called Sunset & Divine, and toured the UK, appearing on chat shows and in night clubs. Brown enjoyed a few years of low-level borderline mainstream fame, including appearances on Howard Stern's radio show, Danny Bonaduce's TV show, and Judge Judy. She reportedly turned down an offer to guest star on Married with Children, when the program's producers would not pay what she felt she was worth. By 1997, though, she had earned enough money to buy an upscale house and enroll her daughters in a private school.

Brown was arrested in Las Vegas in 1997, after an undercover police officer inquired about her prices. The cop testified that Ms Brown replied, "I'm not into that. I have businesses. I have some girls that do that for me." She was also arrested for drunk and disorderly conduct at the MGM Grand in 2002, and her home -- unoccupied at the time -- was firebombed while she was living in Nevada.

In 2003, she was briefly employed at the famous Bunny Ranch brothel outside Carson City, Nevada. In 2004, she was arrested near San Francisco for possession of stolen property. In a recent interview, she said that her prices now begin at $2,000, with a surcharge for gentlemen who wear a wedding ring. In such work, however, there is usually a markdown between asking price and actual price.

She describes her relationship with her longtime pimp 'Gangster' Brown, as "troubled," but says her daughters are aware of her work and have no problem with it, aside from occasionally being teased at school.
