Russian Playboy model Victoria Bonya claims she was detained by U.S. immigration: 'I thought it was a joke'
A Russian Playboy model claims she was detained by U.S. border agents upon arriving in Los Angeles late last month.
Victoria Bonya, 37, says she thought American immigration officials were joking when they asked her about the KGB.
“I started laughing, as I really thought it was a joke, until they asked me the same thing for a third time!’’
Bonya said agents were confused – or concerned – after discovering a “Spy-Land” business card in her luggage.
The company specializes in hidden cameras, according to the Post.
Eventually, though, Bonya’s good looks apparently got her off the hook. According to reports, the model turned TV presenter convinced border agents of her innocence by scrolling through her social media feeds – which are littered with glamour shots and an abundance of fan support.
“It was a big shock! I thought that was it and that they will deport me asap,” she added.
Along with a handful of Russia models, Bonya was booted from a luxury Dubai hotel in January after posting racy selfies of herself at the resort.
The Russian beauty boasts more than 5 million followers on Instagram and close to 2 million supporters on Twitter.
According to her feeds, Bonya remains in L.A. after arriving in La La Land on Feb. 23.
