Chloe Ayling wants to share her harrowing story with the world.
The model, who was allegedly drugged and kidnapped with the intent of being trafficked online, says that she may make a career change. According to the Metro, she told ITV she isn't ruling out creating a documentary or book about her ordeal. "It’s good to take opportunities in order to raise awareness about it," she says.
The 20-year-old budding model says that she went to Italy for a gig booked by her agent. When she got there, men drugged and abducted her. They told her that their plan was to sell her for the purposes of sex on the Dark Web. Her six-day ordeal ultimately ended when the men found out that she was a mother (the gang allegedly doesn't kidnap mothers). One man was later arrested when he took her to the British Consulate.
News of the possible documentary was met with mixed reviews on social media. Some felt that it was a ploy to bring the model publicity— and they questioned the veracity of her story.
Others have pointed out that Ayling's story already sounds like a movie, and perhaps a documentary could increase awareness of sex trafficking and save future victims.
