JODY “Babydol” Gibson was a former American madam active in Hollywood in the 1980s and 1990s.
Gibson died on Sunday, January 2, 2022 at age 64, according to TMZ.
Who was Jody ‘Babydol’ Gibson and what was her cause of death?
According to TMZ, Gibson was found dead in her Yucca Valley home around 11am on Sunday.
Gibson appears to have died in her sleep, and no foul play is suspected, TMZ reported.
Her husband, Eric Markel, confirmed her death to the outlet, explaining she was not battling any known illness but had suffered dramatic weight loss of late.
Markel said his wife dropped down to about 87 pounds.
He explained how the two were in the midst of a nasty lawsuit regarding the sale of their home and believes she died of "exhaustion" from the turmoil.
Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Gibson operated an escort agency during which she employed several hundred women in 16 US states and also in Europe.
At the time of her arrest, prosecutors argued that Gibson ran one of the largest prostitution procurement operations since Heidi Fleiss, employing around 300 women.
In June 1999, she was arrested on charges of pimping and conspiracy and served 22 months in the Central California Women's Facility.
