It seems the story surrounding Rosie O'Donnell's daughter and the heroin dealer she met on Tinder has taken a darker turn.
If you don't remember, Chelsea O'Donnell was discovered hiding in Steve Sheerer's attic after a week long search earlier this month — which resulted in the 25-year-old being charged with child endangerment.

On Monday, it was reported that a nude photo of Sheerer was found on the 17-years-old's phone. Ugh.
It appears that the grown adult knowingly sent the snap to Chelsea over the internet.
Anyone else totally creeped out?!
Nonetheless, it appears that the Tinder user could face some serious jail time as he's been specifically charged with third degree endangering a child and third degree distribution of obscenity to a minor — where each charge could add up to five years.
Judge Phillip Miller explained:
"[ Police ] retrieved the 17 year old victim's cell phone [ and found evidence ] of inappropriate communications over the last several weeks between Sheerer and the minor."
Currently, Sheerer's cash bail has been set at $40,000 and has been banned from contacting Miz O'Donnell or her family, which is no shock to anyone.
Our thoughts are with the Rosie and her family during this trying time.
