EMILY PRESCOTT: £4.5m fraudster Fast Eddie hosting sex parties again

EMILY PRESCOTT: Playboy fraudster Eddie Davenport who was once jailed for seven years in £4.5million con is back hosting £80 latex and leather sex parties at his Marylebone mansion

He was once a stalwart on the London social scene, hosting A-list stars until he was jailed over a multi-million-pound fraud.

Now ‘Fast’ Eddie Davenport, 55, is back, and far from keeping a low profile he is hosting exclusive sex parties at his mansion in Marylebone. 

He has relaunched his London revels and this month hosted a 300-guest sex party called Passing Fancies. 

Clients had to be nominated by someone who had previously been to one of Davenport’s nights.

‘Only beautiful people come, only beautiful people are allowed in. Money is no object to these people,’ he says of his events. 

Although the parties seem hardly exclusive, with entry costing £80.

Davenport, a property developer who started his nightlife career in 1986 by founding the raucous Gatecrashers Ball for posh teenagers when he was just 20, later hosted sex parties. He is pictured above with two women in 2016, but there is no suggestion these women were involved in ‘sex parties’

The party’s private Instagram account doesn’t make it clear that Davenport is behind it, and one guest told me she was shocked to see him at the most recent party, where attendees were encouraged to explore their ‘hedonistic impulses’.

The invitation to next week’s party, which runs from 11pm until 6am, says: ‘Costumes strictly necessary… latex, leather and fur always welcome.’ 

There will also be a dungeon and dominatrix.

Davenport, a self-styled lord, tells me that during the pandemic, he ran events in Thailand, but now that restrictions have been eased in London his parties are ‘booming again’.

He left for Thailand in 2019, weeks after a bouncer was stabbed to death outside a Park Lane event he had hosted on New Year’s Day.

Davenport, a property developer who started his nightlife career in 1986 by founding the raucous Gatecrashers Ball for posh teenagers when he was just 20, was sentenced in 2011 to more than seven years in jail for running a finance firm called Gresham.

It conned clients out of fees as large as £285,000 for sorting out huge loans they never received. 

The judge described him as a ‘very, very dishonest man’ over the £4.5 million fraud.

However, Davenport served only three years because he fell ill and had to undergo two kidney transplants.

In 2001, the government of Sierra Leone said that while the country was locked in a civil war, it had been tricked into selling him its high commission in Portland Place for £50,000 – when it was actually worth £5 million.

James Cook seems to be finally moving on after his split from Poppy Delevingne.

The 43-year-old, who married actress and model Poppy in 2014, stepped out at the premiere of new Netflix drama Anatomy Of A Scandal last week without his wedding ring – the first time he has been seen without it in public since they parted company earlier this year. 

I hear that ex-model James has signed up to a dating app and is hanging out in celebrity haunt Chiltern Firehouse. 

Poppy, meanwhile, has moved into her own place in West London.
