A former Playboy model is now homeless and living on the streets in Michigan.

Sixty-year-old Christa McKenna, a world famous contortionist who made appearances in Playboy magazine in the 1970s, has been spotted panhandling in bizarre positions on the streets of Grand Rapids.

A recent report and slideshow from the Mirror shows the former model begging on the corner of Wealthy Street, giving street performances in an attempt to raise enough money to survive.

However, the sight of an elderly woman doing roadside acrobatics and contortion acts while holding a sign saying, "60 years old: need a job, God and you - please help me" has not exactly been a recipe for success. McKenna told reporters that she earns about $7 a day. "I just don’t know how I got to be this way,” she said.
