MANHATTAN — The VIP matchmaker who's an alleged accomplice to "Millionaire Madam" Anna Gristina is negotiating with prosecutors about turning herself in, sources told DNAinfo.

Jaynie Mae Baker, 30, could surrender as early as Monday or Tuesday, sources said. Her whereabouts have been unknown since DNAinfo broke the story about Gristina's alleged Upper East Side brothel run out of an East 78th Street apartment.

Baker has also hired Robert Gottlieb, a high-powered criminal defense attorney.

"I am representing her," Gottlieb said Saturday morning. He didn't elaborate further on Baker's whereabouts or the negotiations with the Manhattan District Attorney's office.

The DA's office declined comment.

Prosecutors are expected to ask a judge for a high bail for Baker, sources said. She and Gristina have both been indicted on prostitution charges, and Gristina is being held at Rikers Island on $2 million bail.

Prosecutors have been looking to question Baker, who they believe to be an co-conspirator with Gristina, a pig-loving mother of four who's accused of running a high-end prostitution service that catered to wealthy and powerful men. She was indicted with Gristina, but has yet to be found. 

Baker, who lives in Williamsburg, worked as a recruiter for VIP Life, a matchmaking service that pairs wealthy men with beautiful and engaging women, according to its founder Lisa Clampitt.

Baker's LinkedIn page says she attended Broward Community College in Florida, and her page on IMDB lists her as a cast member in "WWE $250,000 Raw Diva Search," a 2005 professional wrestling video.

"Have tried many things but have learned sitting at a desk pulls the energy from my soul and thus not for me," Baker wrote on her LinkedIn page.

On her Facebook page, she wrote she had co-hosted a fundraiser for an animal shelter with Gristina at a nightclub in the West Village.  Prosecutors believe Gristina and Baker knew each other from similar high-end networking dinners.

Gristina is due back in court Monday for a hearing to determine whether her attorney, Peter Gleeson, should be placed under a gag order. First Amendment attorney Ron Kuby is expected to speak on Gleeson's behalf.

The hearing will also determine whether Gristina is entitled to her court-appointed attorney, Richard Siracusa.

Gristina was under investigation by the DA's anti-corruption unit for five years, and she was allegedly heard over wiretaps bragging about being protected by powerful friends.

In an article in the New York Post, she said prosecutors grilled her to divulge names, but she refused. The story ran with a photo of Gristina sitting on a man's lap.

DNAinfo determined that man was Sly Francis, a former NYPD detective who also worked for the FBI and the Manhattan District Attorney's Office.
