According to Adrienne Bailon‘s ex-publicist, back in 2008 when nude photos of the former Cheetah Girl leaked onto the web, she was apparently the one behind them. Jonathan Jaxson, Adrienne’s former publicist, who happens to be writing a tell-all book called, “Don’t You Know Who I Am Yet?” reveals in the book Adrienne’s plan behind releasing them.
Jonathan wrote in his book, she “wanted to become as famous as the top socialites she knew at the time and asked for my help.” He continues on, “She was a very sweet girl that desperately wanted out of the kid-focused Disney star-making machine. So we had concocted a plan where we would act like her laptop was stolen at the airport in New York and she was concerned because there were nude photos on there.”
It’s not that outrageous for a celebrity to release their own nude photos as a publicity stunt – actually a lot of things celebrities do are merely for publicity. But when Adrienne blamed the photos being leaked on Jonathan Jaxson, he quickly revealed it was her behind the master plan the entire time. Jaxson says,
“After they saw the evidence, she was released from her Disney contract. And her musical group, Cheetah Girls, was promptly removed from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade because of the scandal. Most people don’t realize that the stars often go along with, or as in this case, even suggest the publicity stunt.”
Clearly we can’t be too sure WHO exactly is telling the truth here, but either way, what is Adrienne Bailon even doing these days? – If that’s not evidence that publicity stunt didn’t work, we’re not sure what is.
