MANHATTAN SUPREME COURT — The alleged accomplice of "Millionaire Madam" Anna Gristina is having a tough time.

Jaynie Mae Baker's lawyer Robert Gottlieb told press outside a court hearing Tuesday, "Her entire life has been in a state of upheaval for the last few weeks. She's facing serious criminal charges, plus all the unwanted attention she is not enjoying.

"This is a very difficult time for her. This is not fun."

Baker, 30, glared at members of the press as she arrived at court, where her lawyer successfully requested a copy of an affidavit that allowed investigators to wiretap an East 78th Street apartment that Baker and Gristina allegedly ran as an upscale brothel.

"I don't know what I'm going to find," said the lawyer, Robert Gottlieb. "We have to make sure that [the wiretapping] was done according to the law."

Baker, a recruiter for high-profile matchmakers Club VIP Life,  arrived at court with her sister, Jessica. 

Both Gristina and Baker have been charged with promoting prostitution. Baker has been released on $100,000 bail, while Gristina is being held in Rikers pending $2 million bail.
