3LW/Cheetah Girl Lands Deal With Playboy, Alleged Theft A Hoax ?

Cheetah Girl and former 3LW star Adrienne Bailon is reportedly close to inking a deal with Playboy, this after ‘nude’ photos of the singer hit the net earlier this week. In a deal documented by Page Six, Bailon will receive $100,000 if she poses for the magazine in what Hugh Hefner would call “stylish photos with full nudity in sufficient quantity and quality.” News of Bailon’s deal surfaces just after the reported ‘thief’, who allegedly stole her laptop and posted the photos, confessed that the whole thing was a publicity stunt. While it looks like Bailon has had the last laugh, Disney handlers have yet to release a statement concerning the singer’s role in the Cheetah Girls and the ongoing tour, which happens to run through the end of the year. Here’s what the allegedly thief, Jonathan Jaxson, had to say, who by the way worked with Kim Kardashian, Bailon’s boyfriend’s sister and star in R&B singer Ray J’s infamous sex tape: “Purely attention,” Jaxson told a CBS affiliate. Referring to the original story about ‘the cheetah girl’s’ laptop, Jaxson says “What better way to do that than to say that nude pictures could have been stolen from her laptop ?” At press time Adrienne Bailon was still on tour with the Cheetah Girls. As previously reported on Singersroom, since 2003, ‘The Cheetah Girls’ have become sort of a phenomenon ala’ High School Musical for Disney spawning three films, three studio albums, several perfume collections, dolls, room decor lines, a book series and clothing. The Cheetah Girls grossed over $26 million on their first two tours with over $17 million earned in revenue from merchandise and other related entities. Bailon burst onto the scene in 2000 as 1/3 of the R&B group 3LW. The group disbanded for the most part in 2002 after the release of their album “A Girl Can Mack”.
