Spitzer Scandal Call Girl Ashley Dupre Seen With Married Businessman

Ashley Dupre, the call girl known as "Kristen" who brought down former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, was seen with a married New Jersey businessman on Tuesday renting a hotel room in Manhattan and leaving separately on Wednesday afternoon, according to the New York Post.

Dupre, 23, and 35-year-old Thomas J. "TJ" Earle, the wealthy scion of a major New Jersey asphalt company, were spied ducking into the Gramercy Park Hotel, where they rented a room Tuesday after a long day of drinking, dining, shopping and snuggling together in limos around New York City, sources told the Post.

The two then separately left the Gramercy the next afternoon, after spending much of 24 hours in each other's company. They walked out of the hotel 10 minutes apart, seemingly to avoid being photographed together, according to the Post.

Earle lives with his wife and their two kids fewer than two miles from Dupre's family home.

His apparent date with Dupre might have been kept quiet if they had not chosen to reserve a room at the Gramercy on the same day Lindsay Lohan and her DJ gal pal, Samantha Ronson, were staying there. Lohan's presence drew a swarm of paparazzi, one of whom recognized Dupre when she got out of a car with Earle.

The Earle Companies' Web site says, "We understand that our reputation for honesty and integrity took many years to build, but that it can be destroyed in just a few moments."
