The Trump-loving owner of the New England Patriots football team has been charged in Florida at a massage parlor for soliciting prostitution.
Miami CBS reporter Jim DeFede reported on Twitter that Patriots owner Robert Kraft was charged in Jupiter, Florida with 24 other people after a months-long investigation into a massage parlor.
Kraft was one of 25 people charged in the case. The rate was $59 for a half hour inside the massage parlor and $79 for an hour.

Kraft is a longtime friend of the president’s — who even reportedly called the Patriots owner every day for a year to console him after his wife died.
Though Kraft came up against Trump in 2017 over the president’s comments on athletes kneeling in protest during the national anthem, he’s regularly praised him in the media since.
“He’s been very supportive and I know he’s working very hard to serve the best interests of the country,” Kraft told Fox & Friends earlier in February.
