Alright peeps, put on your seatbelt on because you’re about to get on a nice little ride.
Crystal Leigh (or Lauderdale if you didn’t knew her real name) is a 32 years old woman working as a PR and marketing agent.
Let’s start with herself. She is (technically) dating Spencer Peterson, drummer of the former band Black Cards where he played with his friend, Pete Wentz, bassist for Fall Out Boy and dating Meagan Camper, Crystal’s best friend.
Are you still with me? Because we’re taking the long way home right now.
So Crystal set her best friend with the bassist from a well known band to gain a shit in the spotlight but that’s far from over.
Crystal worked for All Time Low a while ago already. She appeared with Jack Barakat quite often and who was Jack hooking up with at the time? Bryana Holly.
Funny right? Especially since Crystal was showing herself with Jack (who
is maybe the one member the most sexually driven) which brought her to a certain amount of fame as she was advertising herself next to a famous dude desired by millions of young ladies. But she needed more publicity and more sight. She needed a new band to climb the social ladder.
Wait a minute. Once ATL started to hang out with 5SOS, who befriended them all of a sudden? Crystal. Who started to “date” Ashton soon after? Her friend, Bryana.
A little bit after this, Larzaylea’s drama happened and if blew up Arzaylea’s reputation to “internet influencer”. Recently, Arzaylea got an agent/manager after she started to hang out with Crystal, who are they? White Label. Aka where Crystal works.
Still with me? Here is a little recap: Crystal set up Bryana & Ashton as a couple and signed Arzaylea after she befriended Crystal.
In the meantime, Crystal started to hang out more with 5SOS, Calum being single, she showed herself with him but the shadow that overcast we the Nalum rumour wasn’t good enough for her because of her lack of spotlight. So she basically blanked out Calum and turned toward Michael. She basically post as much shady shit about her and Michael, brainwashing everyone around her while she shows herself with people more famous than her.
So, Michael being single and drama free, she transplanted herself around him knowing that this will drag attention towards her and remaining cloudy about her relationship status.
So now, she is gaining from being around Michael but she also had to hang around Arzaylea, gaining more fame (minim compared to what the Michael drama bring her). She is a manipulative social climber and isn’t scared to used people at any cost as long as it gives her any kind of exposure.
And my last point:
Last summer, Brashton went to Coachella, who was there as well? Crystal.
Who organised the Bali trip, which was free as long as the popular participant were using an app that no one cared about & gave out full resorts name. (She did that with ATL as well to be seen with them, just like she did with Michael).
Who organised a Deadpool screening with Michael? Crystal.
She basically wedge her way into any situation that could bring her friendliness and exposure at the same time (don’t tell me you would hate someone offering you to spend 2 weeks in Bali for free at the only condition that you post stuff about the trip)
Now onto Michael & Crystal being pr or a couple, I have to be honest, I dont buy It one bit. First of all because Crystal is gonna reach a stage in her life where she wants to settle down and Michael is only 20 & can’t offer this. The age gap isn’t choking for me because it’s the difference that my parents had when they were married and, since they didn’t had the same wishes and expectations, they parted ways (which is most likely gonna happen IF crystal & Michael are a thing). My 2nd point on it is that Michael is NOT in a state of mind properly allowing him to have a relationship. He has his own issues, he is touring the world with his best friends and he doesn’t need the idea of making someone else happy on top of that since making himself happy is hard enough. I’m not saying that they are or not a couple BUT that I personally don’t believe it because I think they are both smart enough to realise that this is a v v bad idea.
Lastly, the Sydney airport matter. Have you noticed that we had paparazzi pictures at the airport? Because she works for marketing. Have you noticed that Michael never travels alone? Last time, Rena brought him to the airport and helped him to check in, otherwise he is with the crew. Michael is a really anxious person so being with someone sooth his worries and basically helps him out. But did anyone saw how annoyed he was to see paparazzi? Its because Crystal needs to have someone talking about the band, any publicity is good publicity as long as people buy magazines and talk about it but she did it without realising that MICHAEL has fucking ANXIETY.
What you guys should remember from any airport stories regarding Michael is that he is a really nervous person who needs reassurance and Crystal is a social climber who needs exposure. By helping Michael, she shows herself and gain fame.
As a summary: crystal is a publicist setting up her friends and brainwashing band members to date them in order for them to gain popularity and she uses as much people as possible to get to a higher social scale.
