A series of exchanged texts and pictures, and a catfish scandal involving former professional basketball player, Chris Andersen, brought Paris Roxanne into the limelight. At the time, she was 17 years old. She has managed to stay relevant and famous through a career as a model, and a relationship with renowned musician, Don McLean.

Despite the controversies that have plagued her name on social media and the rest of the internet, Roxanne continues to thrive, with hundreds of thousands of followers on social media platforms. The secret lies in her charming personality and admirable beauty.

A Look at Paris Roxanne’s Background

The beautiful model was born in California, United States; she was born on the 24th of February 1994. Paris was raised along with her siblings by their parents who are both from the United States. She is an American of white heritage.

From a very young age, Roxanne began to nurture a dream of becoming a model, a dream she eventually got to fulfill thanks to Instagram. As for her education, details remain unknown. The gorgeous model hasn’t shared such information with the public yet.

Roxanne began her modeling career when she was seventeen years old. She opened her first social media account on Instagram in 2011. Afterward, she started attracting a lot of fans around the world as she uploaded tons of bikini pictures to entice her fans. Being a fitness fan, Paris has never stayed away from the gym, and a mere look at her reveals her hard work in maintaining a sexy physique.

The social media model further garnered the attention of top entertainment websites, including Maxim, Playboy, and TheChive; they all started featuring the fast-rising model on their sites.

Her Sister Is a Professional Race Car Driver

Paris Roxanne came from a middle-class family, and her parents reside in Riversdale, California. However, there is little information regarding the family she hails from.

While it is not known if she has other siblings, we know that the social media star has a sister named Courtney Crone. She is a race car driver who once won the FormulaSPEED 2.0 class in the Formula Car Challenge Series. So far, she has competed in more than 16 championships and over 364 races.

Here’s How She Became Very Popular

Paris Roxanne did not spend a lot of time on social media before she got the first significant boost to her years of online popularity. It was a scandal best described as fraud involving a minor. The complicated story began with Paris, whose erotic pictures drew the attention of professional basketball player, Chris Andersen. Over a week of conversation, both of them exchanged sexual images and messages, but unknown to the former Cleveland Cavaliers player, she was a minor. Paris had claimed that she was 21. This went on for a while, long enough for them to meet in person in Denver.

However, after weeks of conversation, things began to unravel. Paris and Anderson discovered that they were both getting catfished by a Canadian woman named Shelly Chartier. She had gained access to both their accounts and thus, their interactions were going through her, including nudes and sexual messages. The discovery came after Chartier tried to extort $3,000 from Andersen by pretending to be Paris Roxanne’s mother.

The matter got reported to the police, and Shelly Cartier was convicted of fraud along with other crimes. She was sentenced to 18 months in prison. The 2011 incident drew the attention of millions of observers across pop culture, from basketball to social media, and inadvertently turned Paris Roxanne into a famous personality.

Appearance on MTV’s Catfish

Despite the criticism she received for falsely representing her age, Paris Roxanne managed to scale through the scandal with little negative consequences. On the positive side of things, she drew more interest on Instagram and launched a modeling career. She appeared on entertainment websites like Maxim, Playboy, and TheChive, while raking money from brands who took advantage of her notoriety to sell their products.

Six years after the scandal, Paris appeared in an episode of the MTV show, Catfish. While on the show, the crew tracked down Shelly Chartier who had since been released from prison. On the show, Roxanne admitted her worry that Shelly would catfish again.
