Vitamin brand hints they’ve dropped Nadia Bartel as an influencer amid WAG’s snorting scandal


Nadia Bartel has been dumped by a vitamin brand for ‘not sharing its values’. 

The former WAG, 36, was been at the centre of a scandal after video leaked online showing her snorting a white powder, believed to be cocaine, and breaking lockdown at a gathering in Melbourne on Thursday night. 

On Sunday, JSHealth, a company who sell vitamins and supplements and is popular in Instagram circles, dumped Nadia as an ambassador after she had previously endorsed the brand on her social media.

However, in a post shared to JSHealth founder Jessica Sepel’s Instagram page on Sunday, the vitamin merchant went out of her way not to call Nadia by name – instead bizarrely rereferring to her as ‘this individual’. 

Sepel wrote: ‘Today I’ve had to make a hard decision as the founder and face of my brand, and let go of a brand endorser. I have to stand for what’s right. 

‘We are a health brand who is very serious about aligning with individuals who share the same values.’

She added: ‘In saying that, I’m human and compassion is what the brand has always represented. Mental health is the number one priority here. 

‘I truly wish this individual strength and peace during this time and although I do not condone what happened, I am a believer that humans make mistakes and we are not a brand who wishes to beat anyone when they are down.’

She concluded: ‘I stand for compassion and kindness, regardless of a situation. From female to fellow females – I wish you only peace and strength during this time. May we all find peace, always.’

On Sunday, a source close to the high-profile star claimed that Nadia was betrayed by a member of her own inner circle who leaked her sensational ‘cocaine’ video to the media.

‘The cocaine video was deliberately leaked by someone within Nadia’s elite Melbourne social circle,’ the source told Daily Mail Australia. 

Clip: The clip began with the fashion and beauty influencer appearing to lean over the plate with a rolled-up banknote in her left nostril as she presses her right nostril

‘This is someone who for all intents and purposes seems to be Nadia’s friend on Instagram but they are secretly jealous,’ they added.

The source went on to say that the video being posted by Ellie in the first instance was a genuine mistake, ‘but Nadia’s nemesis pounced on it and immediately sent it to people she knew could get it to the press quickly’.

Leaking the video was part of ‘a campaign of revenge… someone wants to shut her down,’ they added.
