After a few whirlwind days of media controversy over her daughter Thylane's suggestive Vogue Paris photos, Véronika Loubry took to the internet to defend the "too sexy" photos of her 10-year-old daughter.
The TV personality and fashion designer has closed her own Facebook account as well as Thylane's. The Tumblr devoted to Thylane's photographic work, initially titled "F**k Yeah Thylane Blondeau," has also been taken down.
According to BlackBook, who took a screenshot, before shutting down Tylane's Facebook page, Véronika posted the following message:
"hey guys im the mum of thylane something going 's wrong at the moment and bad personn in usa about pictures she make's 8 mounths ago for vogue ,,thylane doesn't know about the buzz and i want to protect her from the deapest of my heart ,,, she's so young ,, so we are going to close this accompte for a while ,,i know that all of you are good person who like her so i send you a big kiss,,thanks"
While it is a relief to see 10-year-old model's mom stepping in, some might scoff at her desire to protect her young, vulnerable girl when she allowed Thylane to appear in the Vogue Paris shoot in the first place.
But although it may be too little, too late, Véronika seems to be staging a somewhat successful campaign to shut down the Internet chatter concerning Thylane.
The Gloss notes that Dani Brubaker, the photographer responsible for all the non-Vogue pictures of Thylane floating around the web, contacted them and demanded they remove the images from their site.
