Cheetah Girl's Photo Scandal Costs Trio A Parade Spot
Pop trio THE CHEETAH GIRLS have been axed from the MACy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York next week (27Nov08) following singer ADRIENNE BAILON's nude photos hoax scandal, according to Internet reports.
Sources tell PerezHilton.com the girls have been uninvited to the big parade, which will he headlined by Miley Cyrus.
Bailon hit the headlines last week (ends14Nov08) after claiming nude shots of her had been leaked online without her consent. The Cheetah Girls star's sacked publicist later revealed the incident was a publicity stunt.
She claimed her laptop was stolen in New York and snaps showing the star posing provocatively for the camera subsequently appeared online, but her ex-spokesman, Jonathan Jaxson, has confessed he and his former client concocted the leaked photo story
in an effort to boost the singer's profile.
A Thanksgiving Day Parade insider tells the website, "The girls were scheduled to be in the parade and perform, but after Adrienne's recent photo incident, organisers didn't think it would be appropriate to have her at a family-oriented event."
