Axelle Despiegelaere already in Controversy over Safari Hunting Photo

While the World Cup 2014 is nearing its end and we will soon know the winner. Argentina and Germany will face off on Sunday for the World Cup Trophy. As reported earlier there is already one big winner. 17-year-old Axelle Despiegelaere scored a modeling contract with L'Oreal . Her photos of supporting Belgium against Russia have become a viral sensation. It is very surprising that modeling scouts have not discovered Axelle Despiegelaere before. Cosmetics company L'Oreal jumped on the opportunity and signed Axelle Despiegelaere as a model. 

She already filmed a video for L'Oreal that you can watch below.

Now a hunting photo of Axelle next to a dead Gazelle raises some red flags. Axelle Despiegelaere posted for some reason on July 1st the photo showing her with a rifle next to a dead gazelle in Africa. Talk about risky over-sharing. There was just recently the huge controversy of the 19-year-old Cheerleader Kendall Jones who posted several trophy photos. Did Axelle just post that because of Kendall? Who knows. Either way the cute story of soccer fan turned model just got a little less cute.

See also photos and the L'Oreal video with Axelle Despiegelaere below.

The World Cup 2014 final takes place on Sunday at 4pm local time.
