Molly Shattuck

The news that former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader Molly Shattuck was indicted on charges of having an inappropriate relationship with a minor made national and international headlines on Wednesday.

Shattuck was well-known before Wednesday’s indictment, to which she pleaded not guilty. She joined the Ravens’ cheerleading squad in 2005. At that time, the 38-year-old was touted as the NFL’s oldest cheerleader. Along with her mother, she was later featured on the reality show Secret Millionaire. She then launched an exercise video and website called Vibrant Living, and wrote a book of the same name. She was also married to former Constellation Energy CEO Mayo Shattuck, until the couple split earlier this year. Molly Shattuck was also involved with multiple organizations. She served as a board member for the Baltimore School for the Arts, served as a Health Food Ambassador for the United Way of Central Maryland and was a National Healthy Living Ambassador for the American Diabetes Association.

Sports Illustrated and Deadspin each had headlines in the sports world. TMZ, which broke the Ray Rice and Michael Phelps stories, also splashed the headline. People and Perez Hilton also ran items. The story was leading the New York Post’s homepage this afternoon.

“We just hope that young man is receiving the help and support we’re sure he needs,” Hilton wrote of the 15-year-old boy who was allegedly involved in the relationship.

Internationally, Britian’s Daily Mail and the Toronto Star also had stories.
