It’s been claimed Jennifer Hawkins will retire as Myer ambassador over an alleged pay dispute.
But on Friday, the model looked to have not a care in the world as she continued her luxurious Maldives vacation with husband Jake Wall.
The 34-year-old was seen in an Instagram snap lounging on a beach chair alongside her handsome beau, revealing her enviable figure in a skimpy white bikini.

Jennifer looks incredible in the image, showing off her sleek blonde locks, blemish-free visage, lithe arms and washboard stomach.
Shielding her eyes behind a pair of aviator sunglasses, the model also drew attention to her sparkling engagement ring while resting one hand underneath her chin.
Jake, 35, who took the selfie, is shirtless and conceals his gaze with a black cap and coordinating sunglasses.

According to Sydney Morning Herald’s Private Sydney, the blonde beauty, who has been a Myer ambassador for almost 12 years, will be replaced by reality star Elyse Knowles, 25, who will do the same job ‘at a fraction of the price’.
The publication has claimed Jennifer will officially ‘retire’ from the role in November, and will have to strut her stuff down the catwalk one last time in the Sydney spring-summer launch later this month, with Elyse.
Private Sydney has claimed that Jennifer was earning an impressive $1.3 million a year for her Myer gig, while Elyse’s contract is worth just $150,000, which has ‘ruffled Jennifer’s feathers’.

PS reports that Jennifer’s team were ‘infuriated’ last week, with insiders claiming Myer ‘planted’ stories about Elyse and new spokesperson Josh Gibson, before her departure was announced.
Elyse’s career, meanwhile, has been going from strength to strength since she won the thirteenth season of The Block in 2017.
The fitness enthusiast has picked up a string of high-profile endorsements this year, including becoming the face of Seafolly and Davidoff’s Cool Water fragrance.

‘Jennifer has been a huge inspiration to me growing up and into this industry and I am thrilled to have the chance to work alongside her with Myer,’ she told The West last week.
Meanwhile Jennifer already has a lot on her plate, balancing contracts with Colgate and Mount Franklin, along with her own tequila line and fake tan range.
She also develops multi-million dollar properties with her builder husband Jake under their J Group company.
