Former Playboy Playmate Stephanie Adams has quite the resume. Miss November '92, who is an astrologist, author, and "descendant of two Presidents" is significantly wealthier today—$1.2 million wealthier, in fact.
Adams received a healthy payout yesterday after a new York jury ruled in her favor following a 2006 spat with the NYPD that left her injured. The million dollar prize was $385,000 more than her lawyer (pictured above) was looking for, but how can you not reward the client of a man wearing that tie?
Here's a description that Adams, Playboy's first lesbian playmate, gave Gothamist when the incident first went down:
What started off as a night of celebration for my stylist's birthday, ended up one of my biggest nightmares. Thursday, May 25, 2006 at approximately 10:42pm, I was assaulted by a New York City taxi driver (Medallion # 2J70) and called 911. He realized that I called 911 to make a truthful complaint about him, and in return, he called 911 and falsely reported that I had a gun and threatened to kill him.
When I realized that he made a false report, I immediately let the lady from 911 know that he was lying and she even had a chance to hear him screaming at me before he dialed 911 and made the false report.
I stepped away from him while I was on the phone with the lady from 911 and waited for help to arrive. I walked across the street and hoped that the people I knew from the precinct would show up fast. Expecting to have the police show up and help me, I received just the opposite and ended up being assaulted by members of the NYPD.
***(Note: I mentioned the name of my ex girlfriend who works in a higher position with the NYPD than they do, and soon after I mentioned her name, they brutalized me.)***
The city has 45 days to appeal the ruling, and the law department will probably seek to have that payout reduced or the ruling overturned. Adams may be just a tad bit eccentric, but we have to commend her for keeping it tight for the past two decades. She looks amazing for 41.
