The hairstylist, who recently appeared on Carey’s reality TV show Mariah’s World, was charged with felony possession of narcotics with intent to sell, two charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance and possession of controlled substances in a non-original container. She pleaded not guilty to all four charges during her arraignment on February 13th.
Priano got her start in the fashion industry thanks to two of her uncles who are also famous hairdressers. Priano has credited them with giving her a boost after she was fired from her first salon job.
“I had to wash and blow dry everyone’s clients and sweep hair,” she said in an article on Mane Addicts. “All I could think about was how I didn’t spend all of that time, money, and energy at school to be a janitor. I refused to sweep and in the end, I got fired. I then called my uncle who took a chance on me, which in the end really sparked my career.”
According to court documents obtained online, Priano is due to appear on April 6.
