Dawn DaLuise, who had celebrities like Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Aniston and Alicia Silverstone as clients, became upset when esthetician Gabriel Suarez set up shop near her West Hollywood “skin refinery.”
When DaLuise began noticing emails, fliers and a Craigslist ad indicating that she wanted someone to come have sex with her, she assumed that Suarez was responsible and allegedly tried to take out a hit on him by contacting a former NFL player she knew.
“She is culpable for putting the hit on him,” Capt. Shaun Mathers of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department told the Los Angeles Times. “She believed it would be carried out.”
DaLuise has been charged with solicitation of murder and is being held on $1 million bail.
“That she just thinks she has the right to kill a human -- and me on top of that … It’s just work, it’s not that serious,” Suarez said. “It’s really made me fearful of being alone.”
Police believe that DaLuise’s friend, Edward Feinstein, was actually responsible for the cyber-stalking campaign.
The ex-NFL player who DaLuise contacted never made any attempt to carry out her request.
