She says her involvement with drug trafficking had placed her in mortal danger, and she'd been forced to go into hiding to protect her life: "I wasn't trying to flee the country at all; I was trying to protect myself from being killed or harmed."

Farrow was accused of running a major operation, shipping methamphetamine concealed in bath salts all across the world using both government and private postal services. Her bail was set at $160,000.

Although she'd appeared in campaigns for brands like Ed Hardy, Starr worked predominantly in the men's market, modeling for publications like FHM and Penthouse.
