The glamour model even took ketamine to fool police into thinking it was a real crime, the court heard.

Chloe, 20 claims she was drugged, stuffed in a bag and held in a mountain village for a week, after being lured to a fake photo shoot in Milan last July.

She claimed she was to be sold on the dark web by a gang called Black Death.

But doubts arose about her version of events after it emerged that she went shopping with her kidnapper and shared a bed with him.

Asked by prosecutor Paolo Storari who kidnapped Chloe, Herba told the court: “It’s complicated. I planned it but it wasn’t like she said”.

Polish Herba, who has lived in the UK for 8 years, befriended Chloe in 2015 on Facebook.

The pair even went out for dinner and dancing near her home in Surrey, the court heard, later keeping in touch on social media.

Chloe had financial problems and was frustrated that her modelling career hadn’t taken off, Herba claimed.

Speaking through a translator he told the court that Chloe mentioned “a film where there was an organization that kidnapped and sold women, and that such an incident would be very useful so that people would know who she was”.

She thought her money problems were resolved when she dated wealthy businessman Rory McCarthy, but when the relationship ended badly, “the idea of the kidnap was born”, Herba told the court.

Herba admitted that he booked Chloe for a fake photoshoot in Milan last July, but claimed that once she arrived she agreed to the plan and was convinced it would make her famous.

Herba never threatened her “physically or psychologically” he told the court. More on Mirror
