The French government has filed a formal extradition request for sexy Asian DJ, Angie Vu, to where she faces charges of parental kidnapping. The Brooklyn U.S. Attorney’s office disclosed.

The Vietnamese-born Vu has spent the last month in a Brooklyn federal jail cell after she was apprehended on Nov. 4th at Kennedy Airport boarding a flight to China with her 12-year-old daughter.

Vu was scheduled to return her daughter, Isabella, after a summer vacation, to the girl’s father, Richard Frogger on August 29th.

Frogger said Vu told hin she intended to take their daughter to Vietnam for one year.

Notification of the extradition request submitted to the State Department; and Assistant U.S. Attorney Ryan Harris notified a Brooklyn judge Thursday.

Under an international treaty covering extradition arrangements, Vu is now disqualified for release on bail.

The 32 -year-old DJ, who has posed for Playboy and appeared on America’s Got Talent, will likely remain in the custody of the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn while the extradition process plays out.

Despite having the consul of the Republic of Vietnam appeal on her behalf, a federal judge blocked Vu’s release on bail after ruling her a flight risk.

“Because Vu poses a substantial risk of flight and faces a potentially significant prison term, the government respectfully submits that Vu has not demonstrated by clear and convincing evidence that she would be granted bail in France,” Harris argued in court papers.

Froger has legal custody of their daughter. He filed charges with French authorities, who issued a warrant for Vu’s arrest.

Vu hoped the arrest order would get dropped after was reunited with her father.

According to the French prosecutor, Vu could face up to three years in prison if convicted of the charges.

However, Mia Eisner-Grynberg, who is a French defense lawyer, has said that it is unlikely a French judge would sentence her to jail.
