Jordan Finlayson Biography
Who is Jordan Finlayson ?
A former reality star has been thrown behind bars after allegedly stealing a credit card, just months after vowing to turn his life around following his latest stint in jail.
Beauty and The Geek finalist Jordan Finlayson, 31, faced two separate court hearings in Sydney on Wednesday on four counts and a warrant of apprehended violence.
The charges include two counts of common assault and destroying or damaging property under $2,000, and possessing identity information to commit an indictable offense.
The assault and battery charges are understood to relate to an alleged incident of domestic violence with a relative, against whom Finlayson has also filed an AVO.
Finlayson was granted bail for that matter on February 17 before she was revoked in Central Local Court on Wednesday in light of the new fraud charge.
She has remained in custody until her next court appearance on March 10.
Officers forced entry a short time later and arrested Finlayson and a 36-year-old man before taking them to Mascot Station.
“The man has been charged with an outstanding arrest warrant for three offences, including injuring a person with the intent to cause grievous bodily harm, contravening the ban/restriction on AVO and brawling,” NSW Police said in a statement. release.
‘He appeared in the Central Local Court the following day (Friday 18th February) where he was formally denied bail to reappear in the same court on Thursday 14th April.
Finlayson was charged with two counts of common assault, destruction or damage to property and solicitation of arrest and was scheduled to appear in Downing Center Local Court on Wednesday, February 23.
However, the day before the court hearing, she was arrested by police officers at around 10:45 am. m. in a house on Tweedmouth Avenue, Rosebery.
“A 31-year-old woman was arrested and taken to Mascot Police Station, where she was charged with possessing identity information to commit an indictable offense and an arrest warrant,” NSW Police said.
“Police will argue in court that the woman was in possession of a number of NSW driving licenses and credit cards.”
The allegations come just months after the former Penthouse model vowed to quit self-destructive behaviors after being jailed for drug offenses while trapped in a $5,000-a-week addiction.
In April 2020, the former NRL cheerleader was sentenced to two years and three months in jail, but she was paroled last September after serving 15 months.
At the time of her arrest in July 2019, Finlayson admitted to taking a weekly drug cocktail, which included heroin, Xanax, marijuana and GBL, while working as a lingerie waitress in the drug-fueled party scene of Sydney.
Her wild lifestyle sparked a costly addiction and led her to overdose at one point, culminating in her imprisonment when she turned to crime to fuel her habit.
But in an interview after her release in December, Finlayson vowed to start her life anew and get over her checkered past.
“I am deeply ashamed and ashamed of what I had become: drugs are selfish and it took five years out of my 20s,” she told the Daily Telegraph.
‘For two and a half years before jail I used all drugs; cocaine, GBL (a liquid); my life was blurry, I disappointed a lot of people and made bad decisions.
“I was so broken that I overdosed and went to rehab six months before I was arrested, but I couldn’t stop.”
Finlayson said prison was scary and the “wrong place” for her, but she needed the “wake-up call”.
It was a sentiment she kept from the beginning of her sentence, telling the court in a letter that she “let everyone down” and declaring that she would prove that “everyone makes mistakes” but can recover from them.
After her release, she told the publication that she had cut off toxic friends, started studying an entrepreneurship course, and chose promotional and modeling work, as well as returning to lingerie waitressing.
But despite her strong claims, she has landed back in a cell just three months later.
NSW Police said they attended a house in Botany around 4 p.m. m. on February 17 as part of ongoing investigations to locate a man wanted on an outstanding warrant.
Finlayson was a cheerleader for the NRL’s Cronulla Sharks and Wests Tigers clubs and the Sydney Kings basketball team in 2014.
She briefly rose to fame in 2011 as the beauty finalist on Season 3 of Beauty and the Geek.
She and the season’s ‘geek’, Lachlan Cosgrove, began dating after she wrapped up the show, but broke up ten months later.
In 2013, she became the face of the iconic Australian brand Chiko Rolls for an advertising campaign.
The producers of The Bachelor expressed interest in putting her on the show as a contestant, but Finlayson declined.
She also appeared topless in photo shoots for Penthouse magazine in 2018 and often shares racy images with her 37,500 Instagram followers.
