Trouble In Myer’s Paradise For Jennifer Hawkins
There appears to be friction between Myer’s and Jennifer Hawkin’s management resulting in Jennifer Hawkins being dumped from the high profile Myer’s G’Day USA event.
The Daily Telegraph reports:
She will now not make the trip and her Cozi label has been dropped from the show.
Jessica Hart, one of Myer’s stable of fashion ambassadors, will replace Hawkins and represent the retail giant at the event.
Myer menswear ambassador Kris Smith will still attend the event.
Myer CEO Bernie Brookes said the shock decision was the “culmination of a number of issues” between the Myer team and Hawkins’ manager Sean Anderson.
Sean Anderson responded by saying:
“This is a personal issue that the head of Myer PR has with me which I’m trying to sort out with Myer privately,” he said.
The article goes onto say Myers were increasingly frustrated by restrictions and constraints placed by her management on what Hawkins would and would not do in her role with Myer and the lack of awareness of her other deals.
I would be interested to know what Jennifer is thinking about all this. She is extremely popular and won’t want anything tarnishing her nice girl image. Her contract with Channel 7 ended this year where she had an up and down time with the Make Me A Supermodel not being renewed after its first season.
