Parents who force their children to participate in beauty contests are simply "sweethearts" compared to Irina Ionesco, a French photographer working in the genre of "erotica". Her daughter Eva started posing for racy photos when she was just five years old, and by the age of twelve, the girl had already been on the covers of Playboy and Penthouse magazines.
You can read about Eva Ionesco's difficult childhood and her life today in our material. Spoiler: the woman never managed to recover from the traumas of the past.
Eva Ionesco was born on July 18, 1965 in Paris. The girl did not know her father, and her mother — Irina Ionesco — practically did not devote time to her daughter, shifting the responsibility for her upbringing to the shoulders of her grandmother.
Only when Eva turned 5 years old, a woman who was passionate about photography and bohemian parties, noticed that she gave birth to a very beautiful baby girl — blonde hair, doll-like facial features, plump lips… All this made Eva an ideal model for her photos. At least, Irina herself was sure of this.
When her mother first suggested that she pose for a photo, Eva was very happy! At that time, she did not even suspect that she was participating in something indecent. The main thing for the girl was to spend as much time as possible with her mother, so she gladly agreed to all the adventures that she offered.
Irina noticed Eva's enthusiasm, and soon their almost harmless photo sessions acquired an erotic subtext. The woman dressed up the little girl in stockings, revealing dresses, corsets and veils, applied makeup to her and told her what to do.
Over time, the photographer's inflamed brain began to generate more and more disgusting ideas. Irina began to photograph her young daughter surrounded by adult men. But we will not share these pictures for obvious reasons.
At that time, eroticism and pornography in art were not something out of the ordinary, so when Irina decided to hold an exhibition of photos of her daughter, she was waiting for a real furor. Representatives of the bohemian crowd highly appreciated both the talent of the photographer and the appearance of the girl herself.
To consolidate her popularity, Irina introduced her daughter to other photographers working in the "nude" genres, including Jacques Bourboulon. This is how Eva's career as a nude model began.
It was the photos taken by Bourboulon that graced Playboy magazine in 1976. So, Eva became the youngest model ever to appear on the cover of an erotic publication, because at that time she was only ... 11 years old!
Later, the Spanish edition of Penthouse decided to repeat the experience of Playboy. In 1978, footage from a candid photo shoot of Eva appeared on their pages.
After the publication of the magazines, thousands of people began to advocate for the deprivation of Irina's parental rights and bringing her to court. The woman was accused of promoting child pornography and bullying a child. By the way, when the girl saw her photos (then she was 12 years old), she had a nervous breakdown.
In 1977, caring people managed to ensure that Eva was handed over to other people for upbringing — the parents of the famous shoe designer Christian Louboutin became the guardians of the girl. But even they could not return her to a normal childhood. After all that Eva had to endure, she could no longer be a normal child.
Because of bullying at school, Eva stopped attending classes and completely devoted herself to an acting career.
It should be noted that even as a child, thanks to the efforts of her mother, Eva managed to appear in several films — Roman Polanski's "Lodger", "Spermula" and the erotic tape "Dissolute Childhood", which was banned in most countries shortly after its release.
Upon reaching the age of majority, Eva first of all undertook to defend her honor and rights. The girl sued the publications, insisting on deleting her pictures, and years later she tried to "clean" the Internet from them.
In 2012, Eva filed a lawsuit against her mother for "stealing her childhood". The court rejected many points of the claim, nevertheless, the woman received moral compensation. Although, she herself claims that no amount of money can save her from the heartache that she is still experiencing, especially when she meets her old pictures on the Internet.
Eva's mother Irina Ionesco
By the way, the distribution of photos was facilitated by Eva's mother Irina. Despite the ban, the woman kept the negatives of the pictures and years later began selling them again, trying to ride the second wave of popularity.
In 2011, a film by Eva Ionesco called "My Little Princess"was released. And although the events of the tape are partially fictional, the connection between her and her mother is clearly visible in the images of the main characters. Years later, Eva could not forgive Irina.
And we fully agree with her.
And what do you think about the photos of young Eva? Art, pornography, or madness?
