LATEST: Supermodel Elle Macpherson has hit out at animal rights campaigners People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) after they claimed she had cancelled her deal with a luxury fur company.

PETA alleged Macpherson quit her $1.8 (GBP1 million) contract with Blackglama after receiving their letter threatening retribution - adding that she instructed her lawyers to withdraw ads she made for the company from magazines.

But the Australian insists the rumours are untrue, she is still with Blackglama and supported their new line at a New York City fashion show last night (26OCT05), reports the New York Post.
