She’s been called Asia’s sexiest DJ, but Angie Vu is currently starring in real-life caged heat.
A federal judge has ordered Vu to cool her heels in a New York City lockup while she faces extradition to France on parental abduction charges, the Daily News has learned.
“The Vietnamese-born Angie Vu Ha sought release on bail last week, arguing that she would never go on the lam because she’s such a big international star.”
Vu, 32, was arrested by U.S. marshals at Kennedy Airport on Wednesday as she attempted to board a flight to China with her 9-year-old daughter. She had bought a ticket on the flight that day after receiving a state court summons to give up custody of the youngster, according to papers filed in Brooklyn Federal Court.
The feds were armed with a warrant issued by a judge in Paris alleging she was a fugitive from charges of failing to return the child to her father, who has custody.
The Vietnamese-born vixen sought release on bail last week, arguing that she would never go on the lam because she’s such a big international star. She has been featured in Playboy magazine and the Internet film “Underwater Action,” when she is not spinning records at posh clubs in Asia.
But the judge agreed with Assistant U.S. Attorney Ryan Harris, who stated in court papers that “allowance of bail in any amount would not guarantee the fugitive’s presence in court and would invite the possibility of embarrassing the United States in the conduct of its foreign affairs.”
Vu, who has also modeled high-end clothing and started a modeling agency, has been globe-hopping since she broke an agreement with the child’s father, Richard Froger, a Frenchman. Froger had agreed to let their daughter stay with Vu for part of her summer vacation and return to France on Aug. 29.
But Froger received an email from Vu on Aug. 28 informing him that the child was in Vietnam with relatives and would be staying there for one year, court papers state.
Authorities confirmed the child flew to Taiwan on Aug. 27 with Vu and apparently onward to Hanoi.
She returned to the U.S. in October, and, the day before her arrest, posted photos on her Facebook page from a pumpkin farm in Long Island, where she was vamping in a Wonder Woman costume.
Federal defender Mia Eisner-Greenberg declined comment.
Sources said the little girl is back with her father now, so the next move is in the hands of the French court to decide whether the charges will be pursued or dropped.
