‘The Face’ Contestant Fired From Modeling Agency After She Was Discovered Creeping With Naomi Campbell’s Ex
I suppose hooking up with your old boss’s on-again, off-again boyfriend would be the perfect way of demonstrating that she isn’t exactly on your list of favorite people. But, then again, committing such a bold act could also come back to bite you— just ask Miss Universe China 2011 and former The Face Contestant, Luo Zilin (Zi Lin).
The pageant girl-turned-reality star wasrecently photographed locking lips with Naomi Capmbell’s ex-boyfriend Vladimir Doronin. According to the Daily Mail, the two are an item. What makes this story even more scandalous is that during Zilin’s entire stint on the show, she was “Team Naomi,” and really acted as the legendy supermodel’s protégé. One source even claims that Luo met Vlad through Naomi!
“It’s fair to say that Luo and Vlad met through Naomi, it’s really unprofessional of Luo and it’s not great behavior on Vlad’s behalf.”
You could probably guess that Naomi wasn’t too pleased about this. Not long after the photos surfaced, it was announced that Zilin had been dropped from her management company, MIX Model Management NYC, due to “unprofessional conduct” and an “unacceptable work ethic.”
‘Zi Lin’s contract with MIX Model Management NYC was terminated last week due to ongoing unprofessional conduct and unacceptable work ethic,” said MIX co-founder, Neal Hamil.
Ouch! And if that isn’t bad enough, one of Luo’s former teammates from the modeling competition has been ripping her to shreds on social media.
Naomi has yet to directly comment on the betrayal, but it appears that she did make reference to it via her Twitter page.
What a mess!
