Wellington: Tyra Banks has set the record straight: she’s not returning to modelling.
The former supermodel sparked speculation that she was coming out of her self-imposed retirement when she signed a contract with IMG Models earlier this month.
She has now revealed that she will be working with the agency in a "broader capacity" and not as a model.
"I joined IMG for a bunch of reasons. I`m building my company and I realised there are a lot of companies that I can help and that can help me. I used to be with IMG five years ago and now it`s nice to return in a broader capacity," Stuff.co.nz quoted Tyra as saying on her official website.
"And to set the record straight, I`m not coming out of modelling retirement ... IMG is such a huge company, there are many things I will be doing with them. Some fashion-related, but don`t expect to see me at any go-sees!" she added.
