MELBOURNE - Lara Bingle has dismissed claims of the girl, who says she is the cousin of the Aussie model.
Confidential reported earlier this week that Zoo Weekly Swimsuit Calendar model Nicole King, who claimed to be related to Bingle, took up bikini modeling after being inspired by her ’second cousin’.
However, Bingle took to the airwaves to deny the claim, saying she has never heard of this long-lost relative.
“This is so bizarre. I do not. I don’t have a cousin. This is just bizarre,” News.com.au quoted Michael Clarke’s ex-fiancie as saying on 2Day FM.
“I’d be so embarrassed to be lying, I have never even met her in my life, I don’t know who she is,” she added.
King, meanwhile, is standing firm, saying that her mother, Jennifer King, is a cousin of Bingle’s late father, Graham Bingle.
“We are definitely related. My mum and Lara’s dad were cousins. Of course we’re related … we both look great in a bikini, she said. (ANI)
