After rumors swirled last week that the Aussie model was dumped by the lingerie brand — particularly because she's got, ahem, a "difficult reputation" — Kerr went on the record with the Sydney Morning Herald to set things straight: yup, she's outtie, and no, it's not because she's a diva to work with.
''I'm sure anyone that has worked with me would agree that it's not true,'' she told the paper.

The reason for clipping her wings, then? Now that she's 30, she wants to focus on her family and beauty line, Kora Organics. Her six-month contract with VS just didn't allow her the time to do that. She said:
"The thing is, I've been modeling since I was 13. 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. It's really important I give 100 percent to my clients and I have to be careful to make strategic long-term decisions with my personal and business interests. I've reached a point in my career where I'm developing my own opportunities that are really reflective of my passions.''Oh, and just in case you're wondering what those more important "business interests" include? Modeling for Clear Hair & Scalp Therapy, Samantha Thavas, Reebok, and Quantas — yes, airline uniforms.
