Cara Delevingne at the ‘Suicide Squad’ premiere in New York on Aug. 1, 2016.
The model-turned-actress is calling out ‘The Sun’ for its VS casting story.
Cara Delevingne is slamming U.K. tabloid newspaper The Sun for running a story this week that said she wasn’t cast in the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show because she was “bloated.”
The model-turned-actress took to Instagram on Friday to address the rumors, posting a letter from Victoria’s Secret chief marketing officer and VS fashion show producer Ed Razek.
“Victoria’s Secret rarely comments on tabloid gossip, but this week’s article in British paper The Sun regarding you and the 2014 Victoria’s Secret fashion show is a complete fabrication,” read the note from Razek. “Contrary to The Sun‘s claims, which they never bothered to fact check with me, Victoria’s Secret made every effort to have you in the London show. I know, because I was the one making the effort. As a matter of fact, you were the first person invited, months ahead of anyone else.”
Razek went on to explain that the only reason Delevingne was unable to participate was because she had been shooting a movie in North Carolina, where Paper Towns was being filmed.
Since Delevingne couldn’t make it to the London show, Razek extended an invite for the 24-year-old star to join the Angels in Paris on Nov. 30. He wrote: “As always, we’d love to have you. No casting necessary!”
