Auckland model, influencer dropped from agency after attending infamous North Shore lockdown party

Model and social media influencer Charlie Wilson has been dumped from her managing agency for attending Saturday night's now-infamous North Shore party in breach of COVID-19 rules. 

As Auckland remains in alert level 3 lockdown, only outdoor gatherings between two households can take place with a maximum of 10 people. No indoor gatherings with other bubbles are allowed.

New Zealanders were outraged on Sunday after footage emerged of the house party with what appeared to be more than 50 young people in attendance; drinking, dancing on tables and kissing. 

As attendees were named and shamed on social media, most deleted their Instagram and Facebook accounts. 

But Wilson, who has over 40,000 followers on Instagram, has now been dropped from her management agency after it received multiple tip-offs over the weekend she was at the party. 

Verano Management posted on its Instagram Story on Monday morning revealing it was no longer representing Wilson.

"We do not support or condone the events of the past 24 hours by anyone involved," the agency wrote in a statement. 

"Thank you to all for bringing the issue to our attention.

"Stay home and stay safe." 

According to its website, Verano is a management company for online creators and models on paid-content sites like Fanly, Patreon and OnlyFans. 

"We take a percentage of our creators' income [and] reinvest it into paid promotions within our network to consistently scale their fanbase," the site reads. 

Police confirmed to Newshub on Sunday they received "multiple reports" via the 105 COVID-breach reporting system in relation to the party. 

They said there may be an update in the coming days if more information becomes available.

Another attendee, who reportedly works for a doughnut company, allegedly used an 'essential worker' pass to get into Auckland for the party.
