Avielle Janelle Hernandez is currently the subject of many conversations. Most notably, her controversial “Coco Chanel and Her World” series caused a sensation in both fashion worlds. For the past few months, she has been criticized for posting pictures on her blog showing her with her mother, father and two other women. The pictures were purportedly taken in countries such as Morocco and India. The controversy began when bloggers claimed that the woman in the pictures was not really Coco Chanel.
The original blogs stated that the woman in the pictures was actually an employee of the Chanel fashion house who had worked with Avielle for the past 18 years. The woman in the photo alongside Avielle was identified as Mrs. Yaphet, and Avielle claims that she is a former Miss America contestant who is now an executive assistant to her mother, Mrs. Yaphet. According to the blogger who started the original thread, Yaphet gave birth to Avielle in Thailand five months ago. She then went on to say that the two are now living in New York City.
While it has been established that Yaphet was present during the birth of Avielle, there have been indications that she may be the instigator of the entire situation. Initially, Yaphet posted a status stating that she was in town to tend to a sick relative but then posted a picture of herself and villa on Instagram. When asked about the image, the mother of the two denied any knowledge of Yaphet and promptly removed the photo from her Instagram page.
Avielle Janelle Hernandez was quick to take advantage of the situation and use the opportunity to promote herself on both Instagram and her own website. She has already released several songs off her upcoming album, which include sample verses from her “amarie” song where she sings about meeting her lover in jail. Her own website states that she will be releasing another song called “Tears” on Tuesday, the same day as the original release of her first song, while several other songs from her new album have been shared across the internet.
It seems that the real motivation behind the racy pictures and posts was a need to attract more attention to the singer. The original post included a plea for someone to find Avielle and bring her home to America. There is no suggestion that the woman in the photograph is in actual fact the mother of the star, nor does anyone know if she is an American football player or an actress. There are however many people of interest in the arrest of this woman including American football team coach Urban Meyer. Reports suggest that Meyer is consulting with the prison authorities to try and get his star player out of the country.
Whether this woman is innocent or not remains to be seen. While posting degrading and sometimes racist pictures online may seem like an innocent enough thing to do, she has been doing it for quite some time now. She has also posted pictures of herself in the same prison as Neiman Marcus’ David Beckham. While it is unclear what exactly she wishes to do with her celebrity status, she is certainly not spending millions of dollars a year on a private jet to fly around the world to see her children.
It seems that Avielle Janelle Hernandez is using her fame to get out of a tough situation. She may be using the prison letters, to get back at her former lover by posting degrading and flirtatious pictures as a way to stir up gossip, as well as a way to try to get her former lover to stop contacting her and keep quiet about the problems that she is having in her marriage. While this is probably a good strategy for her and one that is likely working to some degree, it will not help her in trying to come to terms with her problems as a whole. Hopefully, after reading her recent autobiography, it will make more sense of what went wrong for Avielle Janelle Hernandez and let her begin to work through the problems that she is facing.
