The Net Worth of Ashley Martelle
How rich is Ashley Martelle? As of mid-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is over $500,000, earned through success in her various endeavors. Her online fame has led her to numerous opportunities, and as she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Online Beginnings
Very little is known about Ashley’s life before her rise to fame online, as she hasn’t revealed a lot of details regarding her upbringing, education, and family. According to her, she was originally from Louisiana but her family later moved to Miami, Florida. She decided at some point in her life that she would pursue fame through online platforms, and that was when she discovered the website Instagram.
Instagram is a photo and video sharing website owned by Facebook. It allows users to upload their own content to the service which can be edited with various filters and can then be organized through location information as well as through tags. It has become one of the most popular social media platforms on the internet with over a billion registered users. There are reportedly over 500 million users using the website on a daily basis, accessing the Stories feature of the site. This is despite all the criticism the website has gained from its ever changing policies.
Taz’s Angels and Other Modelling Work
While she started her own account on Instagram, Ashley didn’t really gain a lot of attention until she joined the group known as Taz’s Angels. The girl group which consisted of somewhere between two to eight women became famous online, as they showcased their lifestyle living in a mansion, doing drugs, and seemingly enjoying their life as a sponsor of a man named Taz – their name is taken from the film “Charlie’s Angels”. The girls started to participate in events in several night clubs as a part of the work as the Angels.
She stayed with the group for a year, and it was enough to help her online popularity rise significantly. She began to do modelling work online, and is sponsored by the retail clothing company called Fashion Nova, a retail company founded in 2006 and located in stores across Southern California. The company is known for selling inexpensive “club-wear” attire for various shapes and sizes, offering clothes for plus size, men, maternity, and curvy body types. The company is known for advertising their clothing through popular social media personalities.
Controversy with Taz’s Angels
Due to the mystery surrounding Taz’s Angels and Ashley’s quick exit from the group, a lot of people started questioning as to what the group really is apart from their social media posts. Reports started coming out that the group is actually a high profile escort service, catering to those who can give the most money. They reportedly lure in women who want to get a shot at online fame, but then they become sex slaves or sex workers for the owner and for the owner’s friends.
These reports came in line with numerous other celebrities establishing their own harem of women under their control, and is likely one of the reasons why a lot of the women don’t stay with the Angels for very long. While a lot of people online agree that this is the truth, there is nothing they can do about it as a case, as supposedly most women who stay with Taz are there consensually, while Taz and some of the other models with the Angels do not comment about these accusations. The group has been accused of selling fame and money to desperate girls.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, very little is known in terms of Martelle’s romantic relationships. She has not been very vocal about this aspect of her life, which leads to many sources stating that she is single. Model Amber Rose has expressed how attractive Ashley is in one of her online posts. Aside from modelling work, she is very passionate about her art, and one of her most popular artworks is a crossover between “Pulp Fiction” and “Looney Tunes”. She has also painted self-portraits which can be seen on her online accounts.
