Adult telly star stole £7k in benefits
A GLAMOUR model who claimed more than £7,000 in benefits while appearing on raunchy late night TV has been fined.
Dionne Stenner, 29, ( above) raked in thousands of pounds working under the stage name Morgan James — while fronting X-rated shows on the Playboy and TVX channels.
But at the same time she was claiming housing benefit, council tax benefit and income support.
Stenner, from Hove, East Sussex, admitted failing to notify the Department for Work and Pensions and Brighton and Hove City Council about the change in her financial circumstances.
She was fined £1,315 and ordered to pay costs by Brighton and Hove Magistrates.
Outside court, Stenner said she intended to pay back every penny, adding: “I’m mortified by it all. I come from a nice family and this is something that I regret. I have not tried to hide anything.”
