Fashion ‘Wild Child’ Jordan Barrett leaves IMG to sign with Sydney’s Kult

Earlier this year, Australian model Jordan Barrett was slammed by the talent scout who discovered him at the age of 13, saying he needs to make the ‘correct decisions.’

And now it’s been reported that Jordan, 21, has left the world’s biggest modelling agency IMG to sign with Sydney’s Kult.

The Daily Telegraph reports that the ‘it’ model’s IMG contract ended earlier this year, which was a major blow to the agency.

‘They apparently tried hard to keep him but he would not be swayed,’ a source told the publication.

Jordan reportedly moved to Kult as he had relationships with some of the agents.

The blonde hunk hails from Byron Bay and was discovered by IMG talent scout Kirk Blake at the tender age of 13.

Kirk recently slammed the ‘male supermodel’ for his behaviour.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, he said Jordan ‘needs to rein it in.’

The comments came after Jordan had been pictured partying wildly and making rude gestures to the media.

‘He is unstoppable at the moment but I still think he has to make the correct decisions,’ Kirk said.

‘Why are we celebrating someone who gives the media the finger?’ he asked.

Jordan has also risked a ban from Instagram in recent months, for posting raunchy images.

Last year he re-uploaded a pornographic image to his page, which showed a censored version of a photo of two people having sex.

Jordan tagged his eyewear range Heavilly Sedated in the post.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia last August, Jordan defended his habit of sharing racy pictures online, arguing they were ‘artistic’.

‘Those photos are all art. It’s an art account. It’s all art, every image on there,’ he explained.

Jordan maintains the ‘art’ account separately to his personal Instagram page.
