A gangster turned international model who went on the run in Australia was arrested in a swimwear shoot sting.
Ben Fiberesima featured in campaigns for some of the world’s top fashion houses while wanted by British police for failing to show up for a fraud and weapons trial in 2008, the Telegraph reported.
The 30-year-old worked for big names, including Calvin Klein, Nike, Tom Ford and Yves Saint Laurent, after enjoying success as a rapper known as “Roky Million”.
He even published a self-help book claiming he managed to amass a wealth of “seven figures by the age of 26″.
Fiberesima claims 317 readers have become millionaires after reading his inspirational prose.
The jet-setting fugitive lived in Australia under a false name for seven years before sneaking back into Britain in August.
The slippery model was finally caught after falling into a trap laid by London detectives posing as fashion photographers holding a photoshoot for luxuryswimwear.
Fiberesima was jailed earlier this month for three years and nine months on a string of theft, fraud and weapons charges.
