New videos reveal fashion mogul Peter Nygard’s alleged predator lifestyle

US HEADLINES:

Peter Nygard had a private Boeing 727 decked out with a stripper pole and a bed for sex, according to his videographer — who said he filmed the Canadian fashion mogul’s 17-year-old “girlfriend” dancing at one party.

For three years, Stephen Feralio was tasked with recording every part of the accused serial predator’s sick life of luxury — from the alleged “pamper parties” held weekly for women at his Bahamas and Los Angeles mansions to trips to Las Vegas with a bevy of girls, the CBC reported.

“When I first was hired, Nygard told me that the reason why Jesus is so popular is because he had a good PR team,” Feralio told CBC News, which aired some of the footage as part of its “The Fifth Estate” series into Nygard’s alleged sex crimes, according to the outlet. “My job was to film literally everything.”

He added, “Nobody else in my world of Nygard has this evidence.”

Nygard, now 79, is accused by Manhattan prosecutors of sexually assaulting dozens of teenage girls and women as far back as 1995, including recruiting new “girlfriends” at his pamper parties.

“Nygard would just come down and choose a girl. Usually, they would be drunk,” recalled Feralio, who recorded several of the parties where the young women would enjoy a day at the beach with food and dancing.

“He would be grabbing them, dancing with them. And then at the end of the night, he would give me the signal and that meant stop filming,” the videographer said. “And he would go upstairs to the room sometimes with two or three or more girls.”

Feralio was also rolling in 2012, when Nygard boarded his private Boeing 727 airplane with his “girlfriends” — including the 17-year-old girl.

“So life on the plane, there’s food and then there’s poker and then there is karaoke and then there is maybe a movie. And then there’s drinking and dancing,” Feralio said. “And, you know, Nygard had a bed on the plane, and so he would have sex with the girls up in the front of the plane.”

In one video, the teen can be seen dancing with the other women.

“[They are] all dancing on the stripper pole on the plane,” said Feralio.

During the Las Vegas trip, Nygard appears confused at how many women he’s traveled with as he shows the group their stately suite.

“You’re all going to stay in this suite, it’s so big, so we’ve got … You guys are with me. How many girls we got? Is there one missing?”

One woman replies, “No, no, you two in that room, we three here.”

“Oh, I thought we had one extra,” he said, according to CBC News.

Feralio also caught Nygard on camera ogling a 16-year-old Olympic runner at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

“Just to be here at the Olympics and to be running, good for you, and at 16 yet,” he tells the girls.

He then tells the woman he’s with, “Get her … cell number of something. Two phone numbers. I don’t want to lose her now that I found her.”

Feralio said what was unfolding was a recruiting session.

“Part of what educates this is, in the past girls have said, ‘I found somebody else so that I don’t have to sleep with Nygard tonight,’” he said.

The fallen fashion titan has been jailed in Winnipeg since Dec. 14. His lawyers called his incarceration a virtual death sentence, given his elderly age and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nygard is indicted in the US on charges including sex trafficking and racketeering — and US prosecutors have been fighting to extradite him to Manhattan.

“Harm to his victims has included not only economic and psychological harm but also numerous instances of nonconsensual sex, including nonconsensual group sex, attempted forcible rapes and drugging of victims,’’ US prosecutors previously wrote in court papers.
