Julieanna "YesJulz" Goddard, was just named "Snapchat Royalty" in June by the New York Times, and this month she was being extorted by a model. This is the kind of odd things that happens when you're famous, right? Unfortunately, it happens all too frequently. Miami Beach police that Hencha Voigt, a popular model on Instagram, threatened to leak sexually explicit images of social-media star unless she gave her $18,000.

Police arrested Voigt on charges of extortion, along with a man named Wesley Victor.

According to police, Victor and Voigt threatened to release the explicit photos and videos of YesJulz on social media. The two contacted YesJulz last week, saying they had hacked into her cellphone and stole images, according to the Miami Herald. The police report states that Voigt even sent "a few pictures and videos as proof." 

YesJulz received a text message from Victor saying, "18K cash there (sic) on usb you can have them back as I said you dope chick. I like your movement look if I feel any (sic) business game over your choice." 

That's when YesJulz complied and agreed on a time and place for the meeting. One thing they Voigt and Victor didn't see coming: Miami Beach Police. Cops say they found the pair in a car at the meeting location. That's when Voigt was "seen attempting to conceal a cell phone by sitting on it," according to police. Once they searched the car, they found a phone that the police identified as the one used to extort YesJulz. 

The Huffington Post called YesJulz "the Queen of Snapchat" and Ryan Seacrest named her as one of the people to follow on the popular social media platform. She got her start after promoting events for South Beach clubs such as LIV and Story. But now, she's jet-setting around the world hosting parties with the biggest rappers and athletes. She recently landed a marketing deal with Puma and Red Bull, along with Kylie Jenner. Her publicist told the New York Times that YesJulz has 300,000 viewers on Snapchat. 

YesJulz could not be reached for comment. 

The social media star tweeted today, "I love you Miami. Thank you for having my back."
