Stripper ‘manipulated HBO executive into leaving her his life savings’


By The Daily Mail 

A 31-year-old stripper has been accused of seducing a lonely HBO executive into leaving her his life savings, just six months after they met at a strip club in Atlantic City.

Micky Liu, an IT director at the cable network, died last March at the young of age of 50 after struggling with obesity, a heart condition, diabetes and alcoholism.

Three months after his death, Veronica Beckham says she first found out that Liu had named her the beneficiary of his 401(k) account, retirement plan and life insurance policy.

But Liu’s sister May Liu claims Beckham initiated a sexual relationship with the express purpose of milking her brother of his fortune.

‘Beckham, as a professional exotic dancer, was adept at applying and using coercion and manipulation upon men,’ May Liu alleged in Surrogate’s Court documents filed last month, obtained by DNAinfo.

‘Immediately after Beckham met Micky Liu, she preyed upon Micky Liu’s vulnerability by exerting influence over him in the form of moral coercion and by performing sexual acts on and with Micky Liu.’

May Liu is demanding to have her brother’s money returned, through the exact total of the inheritance is not mentioned in court documents.

In her deposition, Beckham says she first met Liu in July 2014, at the Scores strip club in Atlantic City’s Taj Mahal hotel.

During their first meeting, Beckham says they hung out for about a half-hour in the club before leaving to spend some time with Liu’s friends in the casino.

After that, Liu returned to New York while Beckham flew to Florida to see her mother, who was sick.

But the two kept in contact over the phone, with calls and text messages, and when Beckham had to return to New Jersey in  August to end her lease, she says Liu paid for her ticket home.

He also let her stay at his bachelor’s pad in Midtown for a little more than a month as she settled her affairs.

Despite Liu’s sister’s claims that the two had a sexual relationship, Beckham says they only ever were friends – though she does admit they talked about whether to become romantic at one point.

‘We had more of an everlasting friendship,’ Beckham said.

During the 35 days she lived with Liu, Beckham says he let her sleep in his bed while he slept on the couch. She also went back to stripping, working about two to three times a week at the Scores club in Manhattan.
