Don't mess with the angels! Earlier this week former model Kylie Bisutti, who won the Victoria's Secret Angel Search competition in 2009, revealed in her new book I'm No Angel that modeling for VS made her feel like a piece of meat. Now the brand is firing back and released a statement clarifying their relationship with the 23-year-old.

Here is the statement sent to us from reps for Victoria's Secret:

Ms. Bisutti has made numerous fabrications and misstatements of fact regarding her brief association with Victoria’s Secret. In 2009, Ms. Bisutti won an online amateur modeling competition and hasn’t worked for us since that year. The prize for the winning contestant was the unique opportunity to a one-time walk in the 2009 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Ms. Bisutti also participated in a swim photo shoot in 2009. That was the extent of Ms. Bisutti’s involvement with Victoria’s Secret. She was never a Victoria’s Secret “Angel” as defined by the terms of our Angel model contract. And contrary to Ms. Bisutti’s claims, she was never offered any subsequent modeling contracts or opportunities with Victoria’s Secret despite her multiple appeals for further work. She has repeatedly fabricated her work experience with Victoria’s Secret – including a relationship that simply did not exist."

Bisutti is currently living in Montana and describes herself on Twitter as a servant of God and step-mommy to little Noah. Her new book comes out next month.
