Adrienne Bailon has joined the ranks of Miley Cyrus and Vanessa Hudgens after The Cheetah Girls star became the latest Disney stripper to be caught with her pants down over the weekend. In case you missed it, a pair of scandalous photos of the Latina ass out–literally– hit the Net with a vengeance on Sunday.
The intimate images, snapped for Adrienne’s longtime boyfriend Robert Kardashian, were stolen after the star’s personal laptop was swiped from JFK Airport in her hometown of New York last month.
A lawyer for the former 3LW lead singer says his client is mad enough to sue over the humiliating leak. But is she really?
Celebrity informant Jonathan Jaxson, a friend of Adrienne’s, says he and the star originally planted rumors that there could be nude shots of her on her stolen laptop in a bid to “make her seem more of an adult – rather than a Disney star.”
Jonathan says he never imagined there actually were any such pictures. Of course, if he’s is telling the truth, it raises the thought that Adrienne leaked the nude photos herself.
“We decided to put [the rumors] out there as a plot to gain more attention for Adrienne’s image and make her seem more of an adult and, possibly, a sex symbol – rather than a Disney star,” says Jaxson, who once worked as a publicist for Adrienne’s future sister-in-law Kim Kardashian.
Right, because naturally Hollywood executives are just knocking down doors to hire 25-year-old B-listers with nude images of themselves floating around the World Wide Web.
A nude photo scandal, or rumors of one, probably won’t kill your career if you’ve already established yourself as one of the “It Celebrities” of the moment. Just look at Pamela Anderson or even Vanessa Hudgens. But can naughty pictures boost your status if no one cares about you from Jump Street? Me thinks not.
