Yes, Miranda Kerr is parting ways with Victoria’s Secret, but no, it wasn’t their idea to drop her, Kerr says.
In an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, Kerr says that her upcoming 30th birthday had her ready for a change of pace.
“The thing is, I’ve been modeling since I was 13,” Kerr tells the paper. “I’m now entering a new phase in my life. I have felt this coming since my son was born and, after I became a mother, I realized I needed to prioritize my time.”
And those new priorities include managing her Kora Organics beauty line and other upcoming projects. “I’ve reached a point in my career where I’m developing my own opportunities that are really reflective of my passions,” she says, adding that she is too busy to make major commitments — like Victoria’s Secret contracts. “I’m just not in a position to commit to a full contract at this time. It’s three months at a bare minimum.”
As for rumors that she was tough to work with? She dismisses them. “I’m sure anyone that has worked with me would agree that it’s not true,” she says. And we tend to believe her: Anyone whose baby looks like this has got to be happy all the time!
