Melbourne (ANI): Australian model Lara Bingle has parted ways with her new manager after just three months. In October she booted her management team at International Quarterback - the team that has successfully represented her partner, cricketer Michael Clarke, for six years, reports News.com.au.
She persuaded publishing executive Deb Baker to give up her job and devote herself to Bingle"s career, but the pair went their separate ways last Friday. Baker is said to have been left frustrated by the experience, especially since it had taken her two months to extract herself from her well-paid role at Harper"s. According to sources, Bingle, who wants a bigger profile in fashion but has yet to find a partner, was guided by her stylist and close friend Christina Centenera when she decided to ditch the management team that previously brokered her lucrative contracts with Speedo, Vodafone and Synergy, said to be worth about 600,000 dollars a year.
Centenera, fashion editor at Harper"s Bazaar, even had thoughts of managing Bingle herself but instead brokered a meeting with Harper"s national sales manager, Baker. Bingle, 22, is now in talks with Max Markson who represents the Chk-Chk Boom girl Clare Werbeloff and housetrasher Corey Worthington.
