Melissa Cheng, also known as Empress Ming, was arrested with her fellow dominatrix Mindy Dixon, or Lady Vi, after engaging in sexual acts with Rev. Travis Clark while inside a Louisiana church on Sept. 30.

The scandal: A passerby noticed the lights were still on inside the Saints Peter and Paul Roman Catholic Church in Pearl River, Louisiana, before 11 p.m., according to The Times-Picayune.

  • After peering inside a window, the unidentified passerby saw stage lighting, and a phone and camera set up on tripods. The dominatrices were dressed in corsets and high-heeled boots while Clark was dressed partially in his clergy outfit.
  • The passerby managed to record Cheng, 23, and Dixon, 41, having sex and using sex toys on the altar with Clark.
  • The three were arrested on obscenity charges with authorities claiming the charge came from “obscene acts [that] occurred on the altar, which is clearly visible from the street.”
  • Clark, who has been suspended by the Archdiocese of New Orleans, was released on a $25,000 bond while Cheng and Dixon, posted a $7,500 bond. All three could face six months to three years of jail if convicted.

The aftermath: Cheng, who describes herself as a “half-Asian, half-German goddess,” said in a tweet she needs a “proper vacation after being so traumatized” from all that’s happened, Heavy reported.

  • In one of her OnlyFans posts, the professional dominatrix said she feels overwhelmed with anxiety from the incident.
  • “My privacy gets violated and I get in trouble. Maybe people shouldn’t snoop in windows and then complain about what they see, especially at night. Ridiculous. I’m so shaken up, I keep having nightmares and panic attacks and literally can’t work on anything,” she wrote.

  • A week after their arrest, both Cheng and Dixon posted a statement on their separate Twitter accounts, stating they are “not at liberty to discuss the details of an ongoing case.” Instead, they shared a screenshot of the statement made by their attorney, Bradley Phillips.

  • “It is very regrettable that ‘Lady Vi’ and ‘Empress Ming’ are being presented to the world as criminals when, in fact, they have done nothing wrong,” the statement reads, adding that everyone involved is a consenting adult and the incident happened “behind close doors, on private property, and none of the conduct alleged was criminal in nature.”
  • The altar where the sexual acts occurred was reportedly burned and replaced with a new one, according to WVUE.
