Diana LaCroix (born May 21, 1995) better known by her ring name "Lacie LaCroix" is an English professional wrestler, business woman and former model. She is currently signed to BGB (BadGalBehavior). She debuted in late 2014 after she stopped performing as an erotic dancer known as "Lolita/ Lady Godiva" in the Vesuvius Gentlemen's Club.
At the 'December to Remember' iPPV in December 2015 she pinned Charlotte Melrose during a Fatal 4-Way where she won her first Women's Championship title and became the first in the division to hold it. She also posed for a cover and nude pictorial in the May 2017 issue of Playboy.
Elizabeth was born in London, England (Kensington, Olympia) on May 21, 1995 to parents: business tycoon Janus Beresford Lovecraft III and fashion mogul Lilliana Lovecraft. Elizabeth and her mother later reverted back to Lilliana's maiden name "LaCroix". It has been speculated that this was due to her father's infidelity though Elizabeth's brother, Magnus Furio Lovecraft II, retained his father's surname.
It has also been rumoured that the Lovecraft family had multiple other children, through affairs or other means, though no solid evidence has surfaced on the matter.
Elizabeth's childhood consisted of learning multiple instruments (Violin, Piano, Flute...), languages, (French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, German, Mandarin, all of which she is now fluent) and a multitude of extracurricular activities. At 16 she was married to her first husband, Daniel Crawford. At 17, after the previous marriage seemingly deteriorated, Elizabeth married again to Silvano Calmero. Over the few subsequent years Ms. LaCroix continued to marry many prestigious and eligible bachelors from around the world (Farrouk Al-Jilani -2012-2012, Toshi Suzuki -2012-2013, Michael Yamaha -2014-2016, Prophit Ventura -2017-present) the majority of which were her father's associates.
Many theories have surfaced regarding these marriages; that either Elizabeth was used to carry out business agreements between Lovecraft Enterprise and its partners, later resulting in Elizabeth's distaste for her father ushering her to change her name, or that due to Elizabeth being written out of her father's will Elizabeth opted to marry men of power and high financial status in order to secure her lavish lifestyle. Regardless of these conspiracies Elizabeth's poor relationship with her father was confirmed in a 2015 interview with CAWTMZ where they discussed her past with plastic surgery as well as her family life. "... Overwhelming intelligence, a scintillating wit and the best body money can buy... And I still rate below a corpse..."
In early 2013 Ms. LaCroix was kidnapped from her family home, The LaCroix Estate in London, where she was smuggled to the US where she was held hostage and her father was coerced into paying her kidnappers $700,000. Theories conclude that she was taken due to her involvement with the 2012 Caligula's Casino mass fraud in Las Vegas though evidence suggests otherwise. LaCroix was found a week later in Nevada, shaken but seemingly unharmed. Many suspects were called in including Elizabeth's father, Janus Beresford Lovecraft, her brother Magnus Furio Lovecraft, as well as her best friend and former wrestler Elena Ren, among a mass of Caligula's employees and clientele. More theories believe Miss. Ren & Ms. LaCroix staged the kidnapping, due to Ms. LaCroix's DNA being found in Miss. Ren's Hollywood apartment, in order to regain access to her inheritance. Immediately after Elizabeth was found she was reinstated to her father's will.
After the heat in the media surrounding the situation subsided Elizabeth began working in multiple gentlemen's clubs around Los Angeles from Spearmint Rhino to Vesuvius where she danced regularly. She would perform in a brown wig under the guise "Lolita" or a long blonde wig which would cover her body while she would perform as "Lady Godiva". In an interview, when asked about her past, specifically regarding her past a pole-dancer she said "Well, I take pride in my appearance and I do love to enjoy myself. Dancing is what I love, it's what the men love... I don't see the harm in that. The more the merrier, darling."
Elizabeth had been training during her time in the US, initially just studying martial arts. The thrill of the fight led her to more extensive training where she began honing her snake style boxing (Shé Quán), Piguaquan, Koppo as well as minor Bartitsu from her mother. Though still practising with these styles they helped her excel her wrestling career quite quickly, spending little time in the BGB training facility before debuting as one of the original cast on the main roster. Though, arguably, she wasn't ready at that time she has since improved significantly.
Season 1: Episode 1: "Breaking & Entering"
On the first episode of BadGalBehavior Elizabeth made her debut in a match against Kaydean D'Avalos. She turned heads with her revealing attire and stiletto heels, dressed scantily clad, her head adorned with a crown. In a post match interview Ms. LaCroix regarded her revealing attire as battle armour which may give her a psychological edge against any opponent. Additionally, Elizabeth considers high-heeled footwear as vital to her attire, and has demonstrated balance and proficiency with them in ring.
Her first match ended in her losing to Kaydean, causing her much frustration and a negative reaction to Kaydean's show of sportsmanship.
During a promo at the end of the first episode Lacie was depicted cat fighting with former BGB "Baddie" Brooke though the reasons for this were never established.
Season 2: Thanksgiving Special!
In the BGB Thanksgiving Special 2015 Lacie competed against Keira Darkholme in a Native American vs Pilgrim costume contest. Lacie had apparently made sure to avoid any in ring confrontation with her backstage rhetoric in order to secure a win. Thus the contest was decided.
The winner would be decided by the public and would then be placed in the title picture. Lacie won the contest with 63% of votes allowing her to enter the upcoming title match.
Season 2: iPPV: December To Remember
On December 28, 2015 Lacie LaCroix participated against three other Baddies (Charlotte Melrose, Roxanne Marceau and Heather Courtial) where she battled and against all odds she managed to pin Charlotte Melrose to win the BGB women's champion. Her first title as well as becoming the first champion of BadGalBehavior.
She later celebrated by gloating about her win which caused her to be attacked by three former BGB Baddies "MTK".
During the large female wrestling event "DivaMania" Lacie LaCroix, with Heather Courtial teamed against Char-Lay (Charlotte Melrose and Layla Santiago) to represent BadGalBehavior alongside many other organisations/ free agents.
During the intense tag team Heather Courtial was pinned ushering Char-Lay to avert their attention to Lacie. After a short chase Lacie quickly made haste and escaped the two women, running backstage to avoid further combat.
She was later seen leaving the arena before the event was over accompanied by her husband at the time Michael Yamaha and Heather Courtial.
Season 3: Episode 1: "A Rude Awakening"
In the first episode of season 3 Lacie LaCroix was set to defend her title against former BGB Baddie Akira in her debut match. Lacie intentionally chose an inexperienced baddie to defend her title against to ensure victory.
The match then commenced as the main event where Lacie managed to defeat Akira and retain her title.
Season 3: Episode 2: "Unresolved Issues"
In the next instalment of BGB, Lacie married her significant other,
Prophit Ventura the new CEO, after they'd been dating for two weeks prior. Prophit then explained that he understood Lacie's intentions and due to this she would have to defend her title against Charlotte Melrose, her maid of honour, in a ladder match.Lacie detested the idea and insulted Charlotte before quickly leaving the ring to prepare for the unscheduled stipulationAfter a long and tiresome match both women ended up injured and bloody and after many close calls Lacie eventually managed to retain her title.
Season 3: Episode 3: 'Fashionably Late: December To Remember'
In episode 3 Lacie was again pushed into another match where she had to defend her title. Her opponent would be decided through a tournament earlier that night.
It was eventually revealed that the winner of the tournament would be Lacie's friend Heather Courtial who, prior to the match, she said was worthy.
Lacie then, later that night, would lose her title to Heather Courtial, unhappy that she lost it but relatively glad it was to a friend.
LaCroix Inc./ LACROIXGLAM:
During Elizabeth's time with BGB she was able to create a partnership between the wrestling organisation and her own, LaCroix Inc., a subsidiary of her father's company Lovecraft Enterprise. With this partnership Elizabeth was able to host an array of different fashion shows, showcasing her own designs and using the BGB ramp as a runway. LaCroixGlam became it's own mini plastic-surgery-on-the-go boutique where expert surgeons can attend to a number of different cosmetic augmentations quickly and efficiently all while offering their clientele luxury treatment and scenic views of the LA skyline from the upper floors of Diamond Heights.
The first show "LaCroix by Victoria's Secret" was held during the 2015 December To Remember; a collaboration between Elizabeth and Victoria's Secret which boosted her companies opening show significantly and propelled her sales prematurely. The lingerie designs were sold at an exclusive auction at the Rossi Estate in Italy. Copies of the designs were made at a later date, minus the expensive and fragile gemstones and they were then made limited edition and sold in Victoria's Secret stores.
The second show "LADY GODIVA" was the start of brave new designs, all leaving little the the imagination, which were sold through LaCroix's own stores on the ground, first and second floors of her business
building Diamond Heights.
There are a multitude of different shows scheduled to happen, the next being Escapades in Wonderland, filmed back in November, 2016 in Versailles, France. Originally supposed to air with Fashionably Late: December To Remember, the show will instead air at an unprecedented date.
Elizabeth has previously stated that she had tried out modelling which brought about a different kind of stress that she couldn't handle. Despite this her visage can be found in many editorial shoots, most of which were credited under a different name. The reasons for this are unknown.
"London's Hottest Export"/Playboy:
In 2017 Elizabeth posed for the May edition of Playboy which was Miami Vice in theme. Elizabeth posed in one of her very own designs for the cover and during her interview following her spread she refused to touch on her past with modelling and her childhood. The spread detailed a pictorial where Elizabeth posed nude under neon lighting. The issue also touched over other BGB "Baddies" Heather Courtial, Charlotte Melrose, and Layla Santiago through interviews etc.
Elizabeth currently resides in Los Angeles California in The Lovecraft Estate, LA, an Elizabethan inspired manor house designed custom by Lilliana LaCroix. Little is known about the building itself other than that Elizabeth lives there alone, her brother Furio visiting her regularly. She also has a skivvy of maids, chefs, and a chauffeur who seemingly live in the house with her.
Elizabeth is known for being "playfully immature". She is coquettish in nature, acting seductive nonchalantly yet ambivalently "cold".
When asked about her religion, it's public knowledge that every year she travels back to London for Midnight Mass at her family church, she responded that she is an atheist and she "simply believes in [herself]". Midnight Mass is simply a tradition in her family.
