Remember when Victoria’s Secret model booker Sophia Neophitou made nasty comments about Kate Upton? In case you missed it, Neophitou told the New York Times that Victoria Secret would “never” use the Sports Illustrated hottie in any of the lingerie company’s show’s or catalogs because she has a look that is “too obvious.”
She also very sweetly added, “She’s like a footballer’s wife, with the too-blond hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy.”
Despite these harsh comments, the 20-year-old appears in the most recent VS catalog, which led many to believe that there was no bad blood between Upton and the famed company, but that’s apparently not the case.
The NY Post is claiming that Victoria’s Secret used old photos of the blonde bombshell without permission, and Kate is said to be (rightfully) “furious.”
“The pictures are from 2011,” a source told the outlet. “Kate’s not currently contracted to work with Victoria’s Secret, and they didn’t contact her before they used these images.”
So let’s get this straight. Victoria’s Secret publicly bashes Upton, and then illegally uses her image to sell their products?
If there’s any truth to this, we hope she sues them.
