MANILA, Philippines – Jeane Napoles, 23, the younger daughter of Janet Lim-Napoles, deactivated her social media accounts shortly after her mother was named the person behind an alleged multi-billion-peso pork barrel scam.
The controversy put the young lady's lifestyle – lavish by most standards – in the spotlight.
But she neglected to remove an old personal blog from 2011, which has allowed netizens to scrutinize her extravagant lifestyle.
The scandal implicating Napoles was first reported by the Philippine Daily Inquirer on Friday, July 12. By Thursday, July 18, her daughter Jeane's Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts had been deactivated.
Jeane's blog shows her inclination for designer shoes, bags, and clothes from brands like Louis Vuitton, YSL, Chanel, and Christian Louboutin.
It has pictures of her trips to Paris and Tokyo, as well as her posing with Hollywood celebrities, including Justin Timberlake, Josh Duhamel, Blake Lively, and Justin Bieber. Another post shows her and her 3 siblings attending a movie premiere, also in Hollywood.
Comments on the Internet decried the young Napoles' lifestyle and accused her of using pork barrel money obtained by her mother to sustain it.
But Jeane is not the only Napoles child to be subject to scrutiny.
Jeane's older sister Christine is seeking a congressional seat. Christine is a nominee of the party-list group OFW Family Club, which might just get enough votes for another seat in the House of Representatives, based on belated but official Commission on Elections figures.
Janet Lim-Napoles has denied all accusations and said she is willing to open her bank accounts as part of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) probe into the scam.
