Beautician Maria Gabriella Perez, 51, is accused of jilting Liv Tyler and Loree Rodkin out of nearly $300,000.Â Allegations include that Liv Tyler had $214,000 in fraudulent charges on her credit card over a five month period â€“ and jewelry designer Loree Redkin noticed $68,000 missing. She confronted Maria Gabriella Perez, who offered her $25,000 in free services.
Now the whole thing is disgusting.Â Here we have a beautician to the stars, who had the blessing to work with many, many A-listers â€“ and if the allegations are true, she totally took advantage of the situation. As if what she charged wasnâ€™t enough, she had to use credit cards as her own personal credit line.
Perez faces up to 25 years in prison and 2 counts of fraud.Â Her lawyer believes that she will be exonerated of all charges.
The allegations include ringing up bogus services from the salon. The charges were manually keyed in instead of swiped with a card.
