Ex-Playboy Playmate Took Son in Fatal Jump at Midtown New York Hotel

Former Playboy Playmate Stephanie Adams jumped with her 7-year old son from a penthouse-floor window of a Midtown hotel in New York City Friday morning. The New York Post reports Adams leapt from a window at around 8:15 a.m. at the Gotham Hotel, and both were pronounced dead at the scene, sources said. Adams was reported to be in a “fierce court battle” with her estranged husband, Charles Nicolai, over the child, Vincent. The Post reported that Adams was recently ordered by Nicolai’s lawyers to turn over Vincent’s passport. A source also told the newspaper in March that handovers for visitation rights would happen at the First Precinct in Tribeca to ensure “no violence takes place.”
