Reports that Australian model Miranda Kerr has been dumped by Victoria’s Secret have been denied by the international lingerie company.
Victoria's Secret president, Ed Razek, released a statement saying: ‘‘We have no plans to stop working with her. In fact, I’ve already invited her to walk the runway in this year’s fashion show and, happily, she’s agreed.
"She is also a consummate professional. Any rumours to the contrary are simply untrue."
‘‘While her international commitments have kept her away from us more than we’d like over the past few years, she will always be an Angel to me.’’

Reports out of the US had said Kerr - one of the lingerie company’s top models, known as "Angels" - had been dropped for a number of reasons, including demanding a massive contract, being difficult and having too many international commitments.
Last month, David Jones terminated its relationship with Kerr. The model is estimated to have been paid $1 milllion a year by the retail chain.
It has been reported Kerr’s contract as an "Angel" is worth $US1 million ($957,000) for a three-year contract.

Razek vehemently denied rumours Kerr was difficult to work with saying: "Miranda Kerr is one of the best models in the history of the business - and easily one of the most popular. She is also a consummate professional. Any rumours to the contrary are simply untrue."
