Lily Allen has reportedly been dropped by Agent Provocateur.
The 'Smile' singer, who slimmed down from a UK dress size 12 to a size 8, is said to be "gutted" at being axed as the face and body of the sexy lingerie company after just four months.
Lily - who recently suffered a miscarriage and split from Chemical Brothers star Ed Simons - was reportedly dropped following a row between the firm's bosses Joe Corre and Serena Rees, who are embroiled in a bitter divorce split.
A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Serena loves Lily and thinks she is young and sassy. But Joe wasn't keen and canned all the pictures."
Agent Provocateur insist the photographs of Lily posing in a corset and stockings may still appear in magazines.
A spokesman for the company said: "We haven't made any decisions."
Lily was unveiled as the new spokesmodel of Agent Provocateur last November and reportedly received a six-figure sum for the deal.
A source said: "Lily was so excited about being the face of this campaign. This feels like a big demotion."
Meanwhile, Lily has revealed she has a secret crush on comic actor Ricky Gervais.
The 22-year-old star said: "He is my type. I quite like the older man. Has he got a hairy back? I like men with a bit of meat and a bit of hair. Not on the head though - I prefer them bald."
