In 2010, police investigated claims that Jarrett’s motivation had been to meet women in a bid to lure them into having sex with the ”powerful” producer. It was alleged he had met up to 60 women and at least two had had sex with him, but no charges were ever laid.
The construction of the Josh Kells identity follows a similar pattern. In early October 2011, references to Joshua Rankin Kells began to appear on fashion forums online. On October 12, ”Joshua Kells” posted: ”As a designer at Versace I try to be influenced by anyone and everyone. If you were working for a high-profile label how would you separate pressure from creativity to get a result?”
What makes that entry especially notable is that it was posted just hours after Brenton Jarrett had appeared in Albury Local Court on charges relating to a fraud at Woy Woy on the central NSW coast in 2007. He pleaded guilty and was convicted, but given an 18-month good behaviour bond.
The Age is not asserting that Jarrett is not running a legitimate modelling agency, albeit under a false name. Attempts to contact Josh Kells on several numbers met without success. A female employee of Vexus offered a brisk ”no comment” to inquiries.
