Taylor Swift knew Jessica Hart is trouble — so she kept her from walking in… the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show!
According to a new report, the 25-year-old singing superstar banned the model from participating in this year’s show — claiming she’s not as “angelic” as Victoria’s Secret would like you to think!

“It’s not been announced that Jessica is not walking, but it was a direct request from Taylor that this be the case if she were to go,” a Victoria’s Secret insider revealed.
“No one can know that Taylor requested Ms. Hart not be in the show. They kept that under wraps, but that’s the facts.”
As you may remember, the 28-year-old model landed in hot water after last year’s show when she told ‘Women’s Wear Daily,’ “I think, you know what, God bless her heart. I think she’s great. But I don’t know, to me, she didn’t fit. I don’t know if I should say that.”

Well, it turns out she definitely should not have said that… Of course, Victoria’s Secret thought Taylor was a good enough fit for the show considering they brought her back for a second time this year (this year’s show was taped in London on Dec. 2)!
And though Jessica did sort of apologize — telling ‘Vogue,’ “It was taken out of context, but I have certainly learnt my lesson” — it clearly wasn’t enough!

Taylor got her way, the report explains, even after Victoria’s Secret’s chief marketing officer, Ed Razek, previously denied rumors the diss cost the Australian beauty her job with the lingerie company.
After it was reported Jessica was being fired, he said, “There is no truth to the rumors that Jessica Hart has been fired or that she will no longer work with the brand. As you will see, she was a great part of our show and we look forward to continuing to work with her.”
