.HOOKERS AND ADNAN "HONEY" KHASHOGGI

"She was also friendly with multi- millionaire arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi, who was one of her biggest clients and liked her to call him "Honey"."

"Adnan Khashoggi called her regularly to ask for girls and he loved being called `Honey'. He would even refer to himself by that name."

THE AMAZING FALL OF HIGH SOCIETY VICE PRINCESS

Madam to the super-rich now lives in a Scots council flat

Derek Alexander Exclusive

SHE was the high-society vice princess who led a champagne lifestyle and mingled with Royalty.

Blonde Zoe Paine's little red book was like a directory of the British aristocracy and provided the rich and famous with high-class hookers.

She counted Princess Diana's brother Earl Spencer as a friend and rubbed shoulders with criminal Darius Guppy.

But ex-society madam Paine's existence is now a million miles away from that of her powerful and flamboyant friends.

The mum is now broke and living on benefits in a Glasgow housing scheme.

The designer-label clothes have been swapped for a worn T-shirt, denims and trainers.

Her new home is a council flat in the city's Carmyle, instead of the £250,000 village home she had in High Wycombe, Bucks.

Glasgow-born Paine ran the Diplomat escort agency in London in the 90s and was the boss of dozens of prostitutes.

Her agency was a favourite with the jet set and her girls charged Hooray Henrys £1000 per night for their steamy services.

Many of her prostitutes would accompany Diplomat's wealthy clients on foreign sex and drug trips.

Paine raked in thousands of pounds each week from her international prostitution empire.

She was also friendly with multi- millionaire arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi, who was one of her biggest clients and liked her to call him "Honey".

She once boasted that one of her clients was a world leader from the Middle East.

But her decadent lifestyle has now collapsed and she's now living on £53.95-a-week income support from the Government.

Mum-of-two Paine was raised in Glasgow before moving south of the border. Her Scots accent has been replaced with a high-pitch Cockney chirp.

Friends say she is writing a book about her sexploits and is looking for a publisher.

A friend said: "Zoe's agency was the most popular in London. Diplomat's clients wanted a certain type of girl.

"The girls were educated and many had their own professional careers away from being call girls. It's easy to see why so many men in powerful positions would use Zoe.

"But it's changed days for her now. She doesn't have a job and scrapes by on benefits. It's hard to believe she used to keep company with Earl Spencer and other rich and famous people. She got on well with them and didn't look out of place. Zoe was never a prostitute and was motivated purely by making money out of running the business.

"But things have gone sour for her and the people she once socialised with would be shocked to see her life now.

"She's spent time writing a book about her life. It will leave a lot of her former clients in a sweat.

"Adnan Khashoggi called her regularly to ask for girls and he loved being called `Honey'. He would even refer to himself by that name."

Paine was a close friend of inter-national fraudster Darius Guppy and attended his wedding to Patricia Holder.

She was also on the guest list for Earl Spencer's marriage ceremony when he tied the knot with model Victoria Lockwood. Friends say the Earl was shocked when he discovered Paine led a secret life as a madam.

Guppy was jailed for five years when he was found guilty of a £1.8 million diamond sting. He paid a man £15,000 to stage a robbery in a New York hotel room and then lodged an insurance claim with Lloyd's.

But he was caught a year later and sent to prison when accomplice Peter Risdon told police about the plot.

Paine's Diplomat Agency was at the centre of a murder inquiry when one of her girls was murdered.

Sharon Hoare, 19, was found strangled in a London flat in 1991.

A murder squad detective was carpeted by Scotland Yard when he made sexual suggestions to a woman helping with the investigation.

When the Sunday Mail approached Paine, she said: "I'm broke and I don't have the same lifestyle I used to.

"But I still have the same friends and know of a lot of secrets belonging to a lot of powerful people.

"I'm not involved in the vice industry any more. I just want to come back to my roots."
