A Chinese businessman is suing an Australian escort agency to which he paid more than €2.3m, believing he was going to get to spend the night with Hollywood stars including Megan Fox, it has been claimed.

The man paid A$3.7m for supposed encounters with Ms Fox along with Victoria's Secret model Candice Swanepoel and Chinese model and actress Yang Ying. Named as Yu Xu, the businessman believed he had arranged for the women to meet him in China.

He has now launched a legal action against the parent company of the Sydney-based agency Royal Court Escorts, the report in Australia's 'Sunday Telegraph' said.

Mr Yu claimed to have been told he would be provided with "female escorts of international standing for the provision of sexual services".

There is no suggestion that Megan Fox, Candice Swanepoel or Yang Ying, known by her nickname 'Angelababy', are escorts.

"It was agreed that if (Mr Xu) paid the sum of $3.7 million (the agency) would provide Megan Fox, Candice Swanepoel and 'Angelababy' as escorts for sexual services," Mr Xu's statement of claim said.

Mr Xu was said to have paid the agency in August 2014, but the alleged agreement collapsed when Angelababy failed to meet him a month later.

"He wants to recoup the cost and is suing the agency's parent company for breach of conduct, misleading and deceptive conduct, and unjust enrichment," the report stated.

"It is understood the company will defend the claim but it is yet to file a defence statement with the court."

The number posted on the website of the agency was not working when contacted yesterday.
