Nude Dubai balcony model ‘ashamed’ after being deported for ‘Butt Squad’ photo shoot


A trained lawyer who posed naked in the notorious balcony ‘Butt Squad’ photoshoot in Dubai has told of her disgrace and stupidity at the stunt.

Ukrainian model Yana Graboshchuk, 27, said she was “ashamed” at having to confess to her babushka – grandmother – that she bared herself and was locked in jail in Muslim country United Arab Emirates.

The scarf-wearing granny told TSN: “I don’t know what to say about it.”

But Yana said her relative had told her “the most important thing is that I am okay”.

Yana herself “is ashamed and sure that she deserved to be in prison”, where she said they were treated like “animals” after the nude escapade.

But she rejected accusations that the group were escorts or had been involved in prostitution.

The mainly Ukrainian models spent nine days in a grim jail in the UAE before being deported.

Yana also defended wealthy Vitaliy Grishin, who funded the photoshoot, paying for the group to fly to Dubai and live in five-star luxury.
