Anand Jon Alexander (pictured), now 40, is writing a book in which he claims he was wrongly targeted and is now serving a 59-year sentence for rape 

The disgraced fashion designer who first put Ivanka Trump on the runway is speaking out in a new book seven years after being locked up for rape and a dozen other criminal charges, including having a sexual relationship with a minor.

Anand Jon Alexander, now 40, is writing a book in which he claims he was wrongly targeted and is now serving a 59-year sentence for rape. 

'What I did as absolutely immoral, but not illegal,' he told a former acquaintance, according to Page Six. 'I had a lot of sex, but it was not illegal. Everyone was over 17, except one girl who lied about her age.' 

Alexander was charged with preying on aspiring young models under the pretense that he would be able to help them launch their careers. When he was convicted, he accepted a deal and plead guilty to forcing a woman to perform oral sex in exchange for a promise of modeling work.

Initially, he was charged with preying on dozens of women, but the figure eventually dropped to three. Prosecutors said some of the victims were minors, and some were drugged when he forced himself on them.

However, in his new book, he claims he was a victim of police racism.

'This was about lifestyle. The police saw a brown-skinned man having sex with white girls,' he told a Page Six source.

In the book, he discusses dressing stars such as Janet Jackson and Mary J Blige, and his friendship with Ivanka Trump. Alexander and Trump met when she was just 14, and he was the first designer to have her model his clothing on the catwalk. 

About the beginning of her career in fashion, Alexander said: 'Ivanka did five shows for me. She'd take the subway to fittings.'

Alexander has now been in jail for over seven years, and his family hopes the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit will overturn his conviction.

Born in India, Alexander, known professionally as Anand Jon, launched a fashion line in 1999 and built it into a high-flying career

The wealthy family recently filed a motion for discovery in a Dallas federal court, which says: 'The Los Angeles Jury Trial was riddled with the red flags of due process violations, jury tampering and intimidation, racism-xenophobia and many unresolved discovery issues.'

Born in India, Alexander, known professionally as Anand Jon, launched a fashion line in 1999 and built it into a high-flying career.

He was featured on Tyra Banks’ popular reality contest, worked with such celebrities as Paris Hilton and Mary J. Blige and was among 20 people profiled by Newsweek in 2006 as up-and-coming players in various industries. 

Then sex assault allegations against Alexander began surfacing in 2007. He was convicted in Los Angeles the following year of sexually assaulting seven women and girls, some as young as 14.

Alexander's attorney said after the plea that he admitted to the crime so he could get evidence and materials from New York prosecutors needed to ‘effectively overturn his California conviction.’

‘Considering the initial 49 charges included allegations of rape, drugging and mafia death threats, the settlement of one conviction involving Mr. Alexander's giving oral sex to an adult female was acceptable,’ they said in a statement.
