Fashion influencer Arielle Charnas shares ‘date’ photo with husband as couple fends off embezzlement, marital rumors
Something Navy founder Arielle Charnas shared a smiling photo Thursday next to her husband, Brandon Charnas, as the couple’s reps battled swirling internet rumors questioning their marriage and financial dealings.
“Morning coffee date,” Arielle Charnas captioned an Instagram image showing her with Brandon Charnas.
The cheery post came the same day a publicist for the couple slammed online speculation that Brandon Charnas embezzled money from Something Navy as a “disgusting, coordinated smear campaign” and denied divorce rumors in a statement to the Daily News.
“All of these rumors are fake,” the pair’s rep added. “Arielle and Brandon are happily married. There was absolutely no embezzlement.”
Something Navy CEO Matthew Scanlan also responded to the rumors, telling Women’s World Daily that any embezzlement speculation involving Brandon Charnas is “categorically false” and that he couldn’t embezzle money even if that was the real estate advisor’s plan.
Arielle started the $100 million clothing company as a blog in 2009.
“Brandon Charnas does not have access to company bank accounts,” Scanlan said. “He is not an employee of the company, and he has no access points.”
Something Navy did not immediately address a Daily News request for comment.
The Long Island-born Arielle, 35, and Brandon Charnas, who have three daughters together, haven’t directly addressed the rumors. Brandon Charnas is the co-founder of New York-based Current Real Estate Advisors.
Arielle Charnas’ Instagram post Thursday received positive comments from fitness guru Hilaria Baldwin, stylist Danielle Goldberg and real estate titan-turned-reality TV star Barbara Corcoran.
“Beautiful couple,” Corcoran wrote.
