Will we be seeing less of Miranda Kerr in lingerie?

According to reports, Victoria’s Secret has decided not to renew Kerr’s $1 million contract, despite the star being one of the brand’s most recognizable faces.

Though the brand won’t confirm the speculation, sources behind the scenes tell PEOPLE there’s some truth to the pervasive diva rumors. “She can be difficult at shoots and appearances. She’s not very timely,” the source says. “She’s standoffish with the rest of the girls.”

PHOTOS: See how stars get in killer shape!

But that wouldn’t be enough to get her the ax, the source continues. “If Miranda and Victoria’s Secret part ways it’s not because of her behavior. It’s purely contractual. She’ll be coming back for the show but it’s unclear if she’ll be in future campaigns. But she is definitely one of the most popular models and in high demand.”

For their part, Victoria’s Secret released the following statement from president and chief marketing officer Ed Razek: “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,” he wrote. “Any rumors 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 … In fact, I’ve already invited her to walk the runway in this year’s fashion show and, happily, she’s agreed.”

Tell us: What do you think of Kerr possibly being let go? Who would you like to see be the next Victoria’s Secret Angel?

VS models contracts are usually short live and the company always replace them with some younger model.It’s the nature of the business.

I love Miranda Kerr as a VS model- say the rumors are not true!

Samantha B. on

well, I for one hope the rumors aren’t true because she is one of my favorite models period. I was hypnotized by her at the last VS show…look at that face! how can you not love her? Orlando Bloom definitely can lol…so yes I hope it’s not true, but if it is, I’m sure we’ll be seeing plenty of her everywhere else. other agencies would be idiots not to pick her up.

Anne on

I guess her hooking up with DiCaprio and (ugh!) Bieber didn’t help her reputation too much

Tuxedo on

@Anne what ?

Sherry on

I’ve worked on set with her, and three other angels as an assistant and she is an absolute DOLL! Marissa Miller, however, not so much. I find it hard to believe the diva rumors.

Anne on

Although she looks great for her age, her contract was probably not renewed due to being “over the hill” by modeling standards. It’s just the nature of the business. You’re past your prime after 25.

I’ve always thought she was cute but never understood her being a VS model. She’s adorable, not sexy and her body is high fashion or editorial or print, pretty much anything but lingerie which demands more curves. Then again, VS angels have had subtler and subtler curves as the years go by.

I feel bad for some models. They’re told from an early age that their wonderful because of their looks, then they make gobs of money before they turn 21 and are pushed out the door at 30, max. And they spend the rest of their lives trying to stay glamorous because that’s their “only” value.

Julianna on

I for one believe the comments about her being standoffish to other models. You can see it in any group picture of VS events where Miranda has to interact with the other Angels: they all stay together and she pointedly stays apart from them, as if she doesn’t want to be a part of the group.
Plus there’s that pesky little rumor that says she wants to divorce Orli so she can try and hook up with Leo diCaprio… Where there’s smoke there’s fire after all…
I for one am glad she is no longer an Angel. I don’t relate to her at all, my favorite Angels are Adriana and Alessandra who are hard-working, sweet and very charismatic!
