Fallout with Lele Pons
Cerny used to be good friends with social media personality Lele Pons but the pair eventually developed a bitter feud. Cerny stated that at one point she realised content had been disappearing from her own Instagram and YouTube accounts over a period of 6 months, including photos and videos. Her accounts had also been placed on private so that no new followers could subscribe. Cerny accused Pons about being the perpetrator and eventually confronted her, getting an admission of guilt. Cerny has since stated she believes Pons was jealous and attempting to undermine the success of her career.
In 2010 a friend of Cerny’s from Miami, Michael Camponi, gave her the chance to get involved with charity work. Camponi and his family were running a program to help support a camp in Haiti as it recovered from natural disaster. The program provides donations of food, clothing and other supplies with a focus on ensuring children were looked after. After finding success as a Playmate, Cerny was able to provide more financial support to the foundation and use her connections to generate funding and donations, establishing it officially as the Play Foundation in Haiti. Cerny hopes to continue to grow the Play Foundation and her management company, Dirty Dutch, has pledged to help her spread it throughout the Caribbean and the rest of the world.
