Straight out of Tent City, Mistress Seven wants to hurt -- and be hurt

"I had all the hopes and dreams of what love was going to be. Here he was, giving me the love and attention I was craving, but then he started hitting me six weeks after I got there. It was not mutual. I did like the aggression in consensual sex situations, but not the hitting."

That Seven says she now loves to be hit, pummeled even, by trusted "playmates" is something she can't really explain.

She says she and Malmsteen regularly used cocaine and other drugs, and that the violence escalated as time passed.

(Malmsteen's management company did not respond to requests for comment for this story).

In August 1993, according to accounts in the Miami Herald and, later, in Miami New Times, Seven's mother called the Miami Shores police, alleging that Malmsteen was holding her daughter with a shotgun in another part of the house.

A SWAT team surrounded the home and, after a four-hour standoff, Malmsteen surrendered to police in his bathrobe.

Seven declined to press charges, and an aggravated assault complaint was dismissed.

The highly publicized incident didn't spell the end of the tempestuous relationship.

The two were married at a castle in Stockholm later that year, on December 26, 1993.

Wedding photos of the couple are revealing: Seven says Malmsteen wouldn't allow her family members to attend, and her bridesmaids were three women who had won a fan-club contest.

The bride was anything but blushing. In fact, she looked downright sad, which she says she was.

Seven says she went on several world tours with Malmsteen, and that he abused her in front of his bandmates and hangers-on.

As the turbulent six-year relationship wound down, Seven says she found herself fighting back — and hard — against the 6-foot, 3-inch Swede.

"I became an animal — a drugged-up, drunken animal," she says. "I was not well, and he made me even sicker."

Along the way, Seven says she wrote the lyrics to Malmsteen's tune, "Prisoner of Your Love." She's on the album credits but says she never collected royalties.

The chorus goes, "Encaptured by the beauty/I'm a prisoner of your love/Enslaved by the passion/I'm a prisoner of your love."

Seven says Malmsteen changed her original lyrics from what she calls "a song about literal imprisonment to a sappy love song."

Seven says she won a settlement totaling a few hundred thousand dollars when her marriage to Malmsteen officially ended in April 1998.

She remarried that same month, to a well-known DJ she'd met at a Miami rave.

With that relationship, "it was drugs, drugs, drugs and what I thought was love," Seven says.

The new couple plowed through Seven's divorce money, spending it on bad investments and narcotics.

Within a few years after remarrying, Seven says, she had a life-altering experience after being locked up for a misdemeanor in San Diego. She says she "found the Lord" during that stay and resolved to go straight and try to salvage her fading second marriage.

A subsequent long stretch at San Diego's Christian Recovery Center gave her the strength to rejoin her spouse in New Orleans (where they had moved) and to attempt to persuade him to give Jesus a shot in place of their beloved white powder.

They joined a Baptist church there, where she would testify about her previously wayward life, ran an addiction-recovery group, and ingested (she swears) nothing stronger than an aspirin for two years.

"I was really sold-out for God at that point," she says.

Photos during that time are as revealing as the creepy ones of her wedding to Malmsteen.

Several photos show Seven posing with huge ocean fish that she caught herself.

Sans makeup, with a ball cap on backwards and a big, proud smile, she seems genuinely happy.

"I am a serious fisherwoman, and I love it out there on the water, because fishing for me is very, very physical," Seven says. "I was happy in that moment."

She says she's still in touch with God:

"I know some people think that's ridiculous, a dom with my history and my bullshit still believing in God. But when I die, I know it's going to be between me and Him, so I don't give a fuck what people think."

In New Orleans, Seven set up a residential and commercial cleaning business with another woman from her church that thrived for a time. She says loved the hard work, the labor that kept her from ruminating too much about her life.

But her relationship with hubby number two was kaput. "When we sobered up, we realized we didn't know each other at all, and that was that," she says.

Seven says her church abruptly rejected her after she split from her husband.

Within months, she returned to the wild life she had fled.

Soon, she was back to drinking, drugs, wild sex and seemingly obligatory dysfunctional relationships.

About five years ago, short of money and wondering which end was up, Seven (still Amber at that point) returned to Arizona.


Seven has decided to cook a big meal for her roommates, a few pals and a reporter.

I met amber in 94 while she was married to yngwie, and she was a drunk spoiled brat that cheated on him and went out of her way to hurt him. She maintained a posse of strippers from Phoenix that she put up in a hotel on yngwie's dime! We had to carry her out of I too many bars to even count, all the while she was pitching a fit and raising hell!! On a few occasions passersby actually thought she was being abducted and tried to intervene! What a mess!! Yngwie is no saint and I can't honestly say he didn't smack her around as she claims, and I do recall seeing bruises on her arms once, and on her face on another occasion but she said it was from an accident...

i have personally had the opportunity to meet Seven she is a real down to earth girl! just because she had chose the career path that she does doesnt give anyone the right to criticize her! i can consider her a friend and not on a business lever but personal level! if she werent doing it for those who want it done chances are youd be doing it yourself but not as good as she has seemed to do it! weve hung out chilled and kicked it even had a couple drinks together! so for those that wanna criticize her rethink where your at in life and notice where she is your all struggling shes living!

In 1993 I used to hand out with Yngwie and Amber at the Miami Shores home, Matts the keyboard player also lived there. Poor guy, he could write a book on the horrors that went on there. Anyhow, Amber was very jealous of Yngwie and his fame, she never showed any support in his music. She hated when I or others would sit and listen to Yngwie play, she would act like a jealous child and cause a scene. I never saw Yngwie ever put one finger on her, and she would push his buttons, even when he was intoxicated. She was an evil bitch then, and a back stabber. I took pictures one night and she stole my film before I left! She would go through Yngwies phone book of celebrities and call all his friends...Embarassing the poor guy. She would cheat on him, and she was the abusive one from what I saw. I couldn't stand her, but had to pretend, just to be around Yngwie. I'm so happy Yngwie through that whore to the wayside where she belonged. He was too good for that trash. She made a career out of sex, what a classy broad. You will have all the time in the world for torture Amber when you arrive in Hell.

I knew amber when she went to church in New Orleans. The church didn't just drop her. I was there. Her and my mom were friends. She just dropped it. But she's still so hot. I would pay for her services. I do remember going to the water park with her one time in Baton Rouge. It sucked that she wore a t shirt over her bikini

I very recently (days ago) had the 'pleasure' of meeting M7, first online, then about two hours later I met her, face to face. After being welcomed into her home and brief exchange of "hellos" and "how are yous", M7, wearing a red body net, leather panties, thigh high black boots and matching gloves (yes, thats all), pulled me close for a big hug. She pulled away and with that 1,000 watt smile she says, "Oooh, great positive energy!"Now people, understand this, enhancements or not, this woman is smoking, effing hot! And for those guys writing in claiming to have the manhood to make her melt, better re-think those glutteral thoughts, that's the wrong ticket to this game! From what I 'experienced' (and that is all I'm going to say), from what her internet viewers were requesting her to do via the numerous live cams, it is obvious that M7 has been around the block of her subculture, many, many times.One other thing you guys, there is no room here for stage fright, I mean, none, if you know what I mean...

I don't agree at all with StellarTruth's (#16) comment, "Instead of carving things in your arms, why don't you just cut your wrists???,"despite the fact she know's her. In fact, I find it to be very inappropriate and beyond hurtful. I know that people have feelings so I try to keep what I say/type in mind. Amber Dawn aka: Mistress Seven, I for one don't want you to harm or kill yourself. You and I both know that Yngwie did love you and tried to "save" you. Unfortunately, what he didn't and maybe he still doesn't know and understand is that another person can't "save" another. They can only try to love, support, and help you get the professional help you need. But, in the end it's all up to you.

I know this woman and know her well. Everything that comes out of her mouth is just a big pack of lies. She'll tell you how great you look and that she loves you to your face and when you walk away, all she does is talk shit about you! I don't believe any of her stories and there is a reason she does not work at DOI anymore. She is a liar, a thief, and a whore. Just go be the prostitute that you know deep down inside you were always meant to be AMBER! We all know you are good for NOTHING else! You are as fake and phony as the boobs on your chest, the tan on your skin, and the extensions in your hair! Instead of carving things in your arms, why don't you just cut your wrists???

Amber, I don't believe your story either. I met you and Yngwie backstage at the Troubadour in Los Angeles in 1993. He was nothing but respectful toward you. In fact, he treated you like a freakin' Queen! There was NO CLUE that you were abused in ANY way. You were not wearing much clothing so everybody could see that you didn't have any bruises anywhere. Why would you wait so many years to "come forward" with your story if it were legitimate? Could it be that maybe you are getting too old for prostitution and are looking to get paid for your made up stories?? Why don't you try WORKING for a living?

interesting story.. but why does every story that wants to put a human face on an adult performer always focus on the child hood problems and destructive tendancies of the person. I only hope miss beautiful seven feels comfortable with what was published. I would have liked to hear more about things people wouldn't assume about an adult performer.. there was some of that.. but I wanted more...

Amber Dawn, I don't feel a bit sorry for you. You tried to ruin Yngwie's career starting back on August 17, 1993, and it didn't work. Both you and your mother, Susan Elaine Potter, knew exactly what you both were doing. Amber Dawn, you know what really happened on August 17, 1993 and in court. You are a gold-digger. By your own admission in this interview, "you like to hurt people and people to hurt you." But yet you allege that Yngwie abused you. If Yngwie abused you as you allege why didn't you go to the hospital, a doctor, where are the X-rays, photos, etc.? I have to agree with this comment by youknowwho, "I never thought the day would come...but she's as CRAZY as her mother!!"On July 5, 1994, I remember when you pushed Yngwie on stage at The Bayou, Georgetown, Washington, DC on "The Seventh Sign Tour." All he did was introduce you to his fans in a very loving way as he new wife and you took your sweet time coming out. He had to call you out on stage twice. Finally, when you appeared on stage he gave you a kiss and you violently pushed him and he almost lost his balance and fell. Luckily, he regained his balance and didn't fall. The whole audience took in a huge sigh of shock and disbelief at your actions. After that you could have heard a pin drop. Next, Yngwie took a short break and went backstage and he peeked his head out from behind the curtains and he had tears in his eyes. My heart sank. I so wanted to kick your ass for doing that, but I am a lady and I didn't. What good does it do to retell a story full of lies about Yngwie that happened fourteen years ago? How do you think this makes Yngwie's son, Antonio, feel? Do you even care? I doubt it! You enjoy hurting people well there's a saying, "What goes around comes around."

Comment by youknowwho � May 21, 2007 @ 01:24PM" youknowwho" the person who said that, "She is just as nuts as her mother."

Now THAT was a very good story. I am not interested in that lifestyle, but the way you put it together made me read every word. I don't think I would like to go out with this woman, but I would like to meet her in a group of people. Thanks for finding this out of the way person.

I read this poor wretches story and well all I can do for the poor dear is recomend that she go to church and get saved. That's no way to live, it'not even a real career, but only and excuse to act like a pop-TART! God has some plan for her and I don't think whipping men for money is it. She also needs a shrink to work out her sexual hang-ups. If she wants, and if you contact her for me, I can recomend that she seek out pastor RDouglas Chuckuemeka of new destiny christian church out in Laveen Az. She's to smart to carry out the devils work.Being a mistress is what whoremongers do, She's better than that.

Always have been a fan of Rubins stories, and I was wondering what the heck he was doing with this on. But it was a wonderful job at revealing this young lady for who she is without pulling resorting to the juvenile tone that has infected a lot of your publication in recent years.

I was a life long friend to Amber when we were young... it was hard to read this and think about our life together. I'm not even sure how to feel about "Seven". I do feel a bit sad and scared for Amberdawn. I'll always remember and love her!!

Great story. Really appreciate the non-judgemental tone - it's so refreshing to find a well written piece like that puts a truly human face on this normally taboo part of our society. Thanks for sharing your life, Mistress Seven.

And John... who cares what your mom thinks??

Loved the story, though it was very sad in a way. That girl is beautiful, but she is troubled and is trouble. She's the kind of girl my mother always warned me about.
