A PLAYBOY cover girl and Miss BumBum winner dubbed the “Powder Queen” has been jailed for eight years for running a sex and drugs gang in Brazil.
Flavia Tamayo, 22, was arrested last year in a hotel in Vitoria, Espirito Santo on July 21 — and stripped off in front of stunned guests while cops tried to handcuff her.
Tamayo, who also goes by the name Pamela Pantera, has been jailed for dealing drugs and prostituting herself after being imprisoned in the Brazilian state of Espirito Santo between June and September last year pending trial.
The adult film star was part of a drug-trafficking gang set up by prostitutes.
Cops found the porn star and her female accomplices had specialised in selling Class A narcotics, including cocaine.
Detectives found they had been selling the drugs to wealthy customers in the Federal District where the capital Brasília is located.
“The information we have is that she created a package, a combo of prostitution and drug sales, either for the consumption of that [sexual] relationship or for a later,” said prosecutor Rafael Correa.

“She worked at first as a call girl providing drugs to people who were contracting her services.
“But there is also evidence that she also had something like a drug delivery service in the federal capital.”
Tamayo, who has been dubbed the “Powder Queen”, once featured on the cover of Playboy in Portugal.
Her arrest made headlines when police officers tried to apprehend her and she caused a scene at a hotel, taking her clothes off in front of the officers and guests.
During the raids carried out by the police in June last year, during which they served 37 arrest warrants, they seized large amounts of cocaine, firearms and ammunition.
Investigators at the time said that they believed that the criminal organisation run by the prostitutes had a “sex programme” that involved supplying escorts and drugs to rich clients.
While prostitution itself is not illegal in Brazil, employing sex workers and running brothels are.
She also participated in the Miss BumBum Brazil contest, which she won in 2018.
The court said that the model can serve her sentence in a semi-open regime and the sentence can be appealed.
