Jessica Hart Dropped by Vicotria's Secret For Slamming Taylor Swift?
Victoria's Secret model Jessica Hart may no longer walk the runway for the lingerie company, the New York Post's Page Six reports, as her bosses are reportedly "furious" at her dissing Taylor Swift at the after-party of the latest fashion show.
Swift took the stage for the Christmas special that will air Dec. 10 on CBS, performing her hit song "I Knew You Were Trouble" while wearing several eye-catching outfits, including a British Invasion-themed Union Jack dress with matching shoes, a hat and gladiator heels and a sparkling floral beaded mini-dress by Zuhair Murad.
"I don't know if I should say that. I think what you find is that for a lot of us, we've been working for 14, 15 years; what it takes to make it here comes from experience and confidence and knowing how to be confident with yourself. I think it comes with age. It's definitely the benchmark of all jobs," Hart said.
Now Victoria's Secret executives are angry and allegedly planning to drop Hart as an angel, as when asked by interviewers if she thought Swift could make it as a model, Hart replied with a straightforward, "No." Due to her indescretion (or honesty), the higher-ups "won't be inviting Hart to walk in next year's show," Page Six insiders claim.
However, other sources say that Hart's quotes were misconstrued.
"I have personally been in contact with Jessica Hart and she said she was 'wildly misinterpreted' and that she thought Taylor was 'amazing,'" Victoria's Secret exec Edward Rezek said to US Weekly several days after Hart was accused of slamming Swift. "She is stunned that anyone would think differently. And that's something we can all agree on."
