It's been claimed a disgraced former football superstar was taken in by a madam to live in her brothel prior to his most recent arrest.
The Sunday Telegraph received information from an unnamed staff member at the Langtrees brothel in Perth that former AFL superstar Ben Cousins had been living there for three months.
The email claims that escorts were sometimes called out of hours and asked to drive Cousins around the city or to 'babysit' him if we was feeling lonely.

The correspondence also claimed that Cousins was invited to live at Langtrees by madam Mary-Anne Kenworthy, who told staff the footballer was a distant relative.
'She fed him, clothed him, gave him a place for him and his associated to stay...provided him with numerous girls, hell she even threw him his 40th birthday there,' one staff member wrote.
The sex worker claims Cousins apparently kept to himself at first but soon his alleged drug use and company he kept made some of the staff feel 'uncomfortable'.
They also claimed the breaking point came when the staff started to receive the out of hours calls to help look after Cousins.
He moved into the apartment on the first floor of the brothel but was only allowed to stay there whenever Miss Kenworthy's ex-husband was not in town.
