In the meantime, Uribe believes the public should reserve judgment on her friend. “I want people to know that she has a good heart and she’s a good human being and she’s a good mother,” Uribe says. “It’s only one side of the story.”

Daniela Rendon is a luxury real estate agent in Miami. She was known for her integrity and working as a team to help and support others in her profession. She had a seemingly glamorous lifestyle, which was documented on her Instagram page that she later deleted. On Feb. 2, Rendon appeared in federal magistrate court, where she was charged with seven counts of wire fraud, two counts of money laundering, and one count of aggravated identity theft for allegedly illegally obtaining Covid-19 relief loans and using the money for herself, her friends, and her family. She plans to plead not guilty. Rendon had multiple side businesses in addition to her real estate work, including selling clothes and working as an influencer for a multilevel marketing company. Her arraignment is scheduled for Feb. 13 and her attorney believes that the government is targeting her and making an example of her due to her public figure status. Her friends and colleagues are shocked by the allegations and are standing by her, believing that she was too wealthy to have scammed the government.
