Playboy in custody over ‘Butt Squad’ balcony snap ‘slept with two of the models’

An American playboy who organised a photoshoot of a group of stunning naked Ukrainian models on a balcony in Dubai has refused to apologise after being arrested by authorities.

Vitaliy Grechin, 41, remains incarcerated in Dubai where he has since tested positive for Covid-19.

He picked up the tab for the $13,500 (£9,700) all-expenses-paid trip for his so-called “Butt Squad” of 17 women – but was hunted down by police after the photo, which authorities say breaks Dubai's public nudity laws, went viral online.

Unapologetic Vitaliy has now finally spoken out about the incident – and even bragged that he bedded two of the women he had with him.

The playboy has had to stay in Dubai, despite the fact his female associates have since been released without charge, with his positive Covid test meaning he must spend 10 days in an enforced quarantine.

Speaking of his current situation, Vitaliy told The Sun he is not in prison – but he's not allowed to leave the room and everything he does is monitored.

He insists his "Butt Squad" are just friends and the viral stunt was not a publicity stunt or promotion of any kind, although he has slept with two of them.

Vitaliy said: “What the girls did is wrong, based on the laws of Dubai.

"But we are talking about a bunch of very young, excited, open-minded, reg- ular girls who have nothing to do with escorting, modelling or anything else.

“In Dubai, everything is on camera. If we had other guys coming over, if these girls were prostituting, it would all show up.”

He added: “I’ve had sexual relations with two of these girls. And not at the same time. We’re normal people.”

Vitaliy paid for the women and Russian photographer Alexander Ten to go on the Dubai trip, saying he throws similar trips to exotic destinations every month.

He says the incident happened after the models stripped off their swimwear following a day in the sun and went to take a photo with the dramatic view.

“It wasn’t planned or premeditated,” he insists. “No one was forced to do anything. I organised the trip but not the shoot because there was no shoot.

“It wasn’t intended to be a publicity stunt. We didn’t have anything to promote.”

Following the incident, a police statement said: "Such unacceptable behaviours do not reflect the values and ethics of Emirati society."

But the state agreed to deport the suspects despite threats of prison sentences for those involved.

Dubai’s Attorney General Essam Issa al-Humaidan announced that those behind the controversial photoshoot would be sent back to their countries.

Mr al-Humaidan did not elaborate on what fines if any had been issued and to how many people.

Many of the UAE's laws are based on Sharia law, and people have been jailed in the past for public displays of affection and homosexual relationships.

In 2017, a British woman was sentenced to one year in prison for having consensual sex with a man she wasn't married to. The relationship came to light when the woman reported him to the authorities for sending her threatening messages, BBC News reports.
