Adriana Lima insists there’s no Victoria’s Secret in-fighting

Adriana & Alessandra v Gigi & Kendall rumours dismissed. Got that? Here's some photos.

Adriana Lima has dismissed rumours that she and fellow Victoria’s Secret veteran Alessandra Ambrosio have a feud going with the lingerie overlord’s new models Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner.

In an entirely predictable attempt at getting readers to imagine just how saucy a Lima/Ambrosio v Hadid/Jenner tag-team wrestling bout would look, OK! claimed that longstanding Victoria’s Secret models Lima and fellow Brazilian model Ambrosio were overheard slagging off their younger counterparts at an LA restaurant over lunch.

The idea of supermodels bitching each other off is hardly new, but in this instance it looks like it’s decidedly untrue.

Lima wrote on Instagram: “It’s absolutely not true. Magazines sometimes make a big buzz to sell, creating negative and false reports.

“I absolutely love those two girls, and I can’t believe how negative those magazines can sometimes be. This kind of news goes against my character and against the values my mother taught me.”

So, that’s that cleared up.

Jenner and Hadid only made their debut modelling for Victoria’s Secret last November, and aren’t officially signed up as fully-fledged Victoria’s Angels yet.

Lima became an Angel in 2000, with Ambrosio following a year later. They’ve starred in 16 annual VS shows each since then, with Lima missing the 2009 parade as she was busy giving birth to her eldest daughter Valentina at the time.

Any truth in the catfight rumours would have been doubly awkward for Lima and Hadid, as both models also represent Maybelline in their busy world of flogging jollop.

Lima, 34, has already had a troubled few weeks. Her divorce to Serbian NBA basketballer Marko Jaric was finalised in March, two years after the couple separated following their marriage in 2009. As well as Valentina, the couple have a three-year-old daughter, Sienna.
