Posting Nude Pictures 

It seems like that the wife of a celebrity chef isn't afraid of posting nude pictures on her Instagram account. She posts pictures where she and her husband is either half nude or full but keeping her private parts blurred through editing. She and her better half seem to have no shame at all in posting such pictures. 

Being Mistaken For A Prostitute 

It was back in 2014 when the African-American actress was alleged to be a prostitute as she was caught kissing her husband, Brian in public. According to her, the cops speculated that she was prostitute just because she was black and Brian was white. The allegation was that she was a prostitute and her husband was thought to be a client. "Is it a crime to show affection towards your spouse in public?", she said. 

According to The Guardian, the cops arrived to arrest the two of them as they received a complaint that the couple was making out in a car which was parked outside CBS studios in the Studio City, Los Angeles. Daniele immediately blamed that the cops were discriminating her just because of her color. She was just detained but not arrested and even kept in the back seat of the police's car.

The 'Django Unchained' star was even handcuffed in the process as she refused to show her ID to the cops. She had to suffer a cut in her hand while the cops were handcuffing her roughly.

Being Sentenced Community Service 

After the whole controversy with the cops happened, Watts and Lucas were asked to write an apology letter to the cops to whom the actress had blamed of racial discrimination by the court.

Watts wrote an apology letter but didn't directly asked for an apology to the cop. It was a bit informal and she was asked to write it again. The same thing happened next time, she apologized for her actions in high emotional state.
