Lara fires back after losing Speedo sponsorship

Melbourne: Australian model Lara Bingle has taken to Twitter to vent about being ‘spat out’ by Speedo, her major sponsor.

In a series of posts, the struggling swimwear model was reacting to weekend reports that her career was over.

"People think your success is just a matter of having a pretty face. But it’s easy to be chewed up and spat out," a daily quoted her as tweeting.

"What people say isn’t going to stop me. I have to do things for myself. You’ve got to stay ahead of the game to be able to stay in it," she said.

While Bingle remains on contract with Speedo, the iconic Aussie label has signed Rachael Finch as their leading ambassador.
