Adrienne Bailon Nude Picture Publicity Stunt - She just wanted a little Attention

Adrienne Bailon apparently wanted to transform herself into a sex symbol — but it sounds as though things went pretty wrong.

Steamy snaps started circulating the internet this week after her laptop was stolen from JFK airport and returned for a $1G ransom — but it turns out it the talk of the naughty photos was all initially a PR stunt.


Bailon's (now ex) Hollywood publicist/pal Jonathon Jaxson (who only started working with the songstress "as a friend" two weeks ago to help spice up her image) admitted to Tarts that after the laptop was stolen he and the 25-year-old decided to "juice up" the story by saying that "nude pictures could have possibly been stolen."

"Adrienne's tour with Cheetah Girls will be over December 22nd, so she is then free to pursue other projects and wanted to be seen as more adult and sexy," Jaxson said. "So after the laptop was stolen we used it as an opportunity to drum up some publicity and start speculating about nude photos, but we never expected anything to get out."

Oddly enough, Jaxson said that the steamy snaps were actually stolen from the starlet's Sidekick phone (not her laptop) so it's under suspicious circumstances as to how the pics have been made public.

"Adrienne and her boyfriend (Kim Kardashian's younger brother Robert) swear they didn't leak them, but it wouldn't surprise me if Adrienne did."

It's either her or someone very close to her," Jaxson added. "Things are pretty ugly, what should have been an image boost has really turned around and bitten her in the butt."

As for how the teen idol is handling the heat?

"Adrienne has been crying for two days straight, she's on her Cheetah Girls tour right now so she has to explain to her fans and is totally distraught. Her career is in real jeopardy," Jaxson said, adding that they aren't exactly friends anymore and won't be working together in the future.

Speaking of work, we don't expect Bailon to be getting any assistance from her current family-friendly employers in the future either, especially given that it seems she used scandal for self-promotion.

According to a Disney insider, talent contracts have very "tight wording" with regards to maintaining an appropriate code of conduct and somehow we don’t think they’d be happy about one of their tween idols flashing the flesh for her phone camera.

A Disney spokesperson said they were still looking into the situation before issuing a comment. Bailon's (official) rep did not respond to a request for comment on the latest revelations regarding the purported PR stunt.
