What Was Fact And Fabricated In Zola’s Story?
Fiction: The Fight between the two pimps
Remember the part in the story where Jessica goes on a job where she’ll have to sleep with five dudes for $5,000? She goes to the hotel, only to be snatched, beaten and held hostage. They want to steal her from Rudy and pimp her out. Someone did try to snatch Jessica but there was no fight and Jessica was not beaten.
Jarrett, who was there at the time, told the real story.
“At least, that’s Zola’s story. Jarrett offered a different version. According to him, there was no confrontation between Rudy and the pimp. He also denies Zola went with them on the outcall at all, saying it was he and Rudy alone who drove Jessica to that hotel. When they went to pick her up, Jarrett says, Jessica was already in the lobby. The pimp never offered Rudy $20,000 for Jessica, he says, and she hadn’t been beaten. The only thing Rudy did in retaliation, according to Jarrett, was tell the hotel clerk to call the police because a man had tried to snatch his girlfriend. (Jessica’s story closely mirrors Jarrett’s, except, she says, it was Zola, not her, who was in the room with the other pimp that night).”
