Alexis Wright yields custody of her son to boy’s father
Alexis Wright, the alleged Zumba Madam, has agreed to let her son live with his father while she faces criminal charges.
According to Dana Prescott, the attorney for the boy’s father, Benjamin Hopkins, the couple agreed in Family Court that the 7-year-old boy would live with his father and change schools. “They really, to their credit, under these very difficult circumstances, they really did put their son first,” Prescott said. “Neither one of these parents have lost sight of their son.”
This decision came in the wake of allegations that Wright took inappropriate nude photos with her son. Hopkins filed paperwork asking for primary custody, citing both the photos and the media attention this case has received. Describing the pictures, Hopkins says, “My son appeared naked covered from the waist down with only a sheet. Alexis was fully naked rubbed up against my son.”
Wright has pleaded not guilty to 106 counts including prostitution, tax evasion, and invasion of privacy for allegedly running a one woman prostitution service out of her Zumba dance studio in the upscale town of Kennebunk, Maine, and videotaping her encounters without the consent of the men.
