Arielle and Brandon Charnas deny marriage trouble and embezzlement rumors

The Internet was ablaze yesterday with rumors that Brandon Charnas, husband of Something Navy found Arielle Charnas, had been embezzling funds from her clothing company.  A spokesperson for the couple told E! News today, “There was absolutely no embezzlement. This is all part of a disgusting, coordinated smear campaign attempting to damage Arielle and Brandon’s reputations and lives.”

There was also speculation on Reddit that the couple were heading for a divorce. The spokesperson confirms any breakup rumors are “patently false” adding, “they are happily married and in love.”

Something Navy CEO Matthew Scanlan has also denied the speculation, telling E! News yesterday in a statement, “This is categorically false. Brandon Charnas does not have access to company bank accounts. He is not an employee of the company, and he has no access points.”

Charnas handled the rumors in her own way this morning posting a photo on Instagram with her husband and a small caption that read, “Morning coffee date.”  There we have it!
