(Newser) – Lebanese model Aline Skaff lived the high life for years after marrying into the Gadhafi clan, but things have taken a turn for the worse: She's been forced to flee to Algeria with her husband, Hannibal; the family's assets have been frozen; and now rebels have handed out explicit photos of her to news agencies. The images (click to see) were found on a laptop left behind when she fled Libya with Moammar Gadhafi's son and other relatives, the New York Daily News reports.

The undated photos, some of which are "of a pornographic nature," according to AFP, show the couple on trips to European capitals, on diving and paragliding holidays, and partying on yachts and a private jet. The party-loving pair were known for sadistic treatment of their staff: A diplomatic row erupted after they were arrested in Switzerland in 2008 for allegedly beating their servants. After the fall of the Gadhafi regime, an Ethiopian woman claimed she had been beaten and tortured with boiling water by the couple, who had hired her as a nanny but refused to pay her.
