Did Pearl's 'bad rep' cost her a big deal?
Sunday Sun is reporting that Pearl Thusi lost a major beauty deal because of her 'bad reputation.'
Sources claim she was on the brink of signing an endorsement with Neutrogena, but was dropped because of her bad rep.
Pearl was allegedly busted smoking week a few months ago by the press.
She was also embroiled in a racist saga, with damaging SMS proof.
Pearl's team, however, say there is no truth to the rumours.
It wouldn't be the first time that someone was dumped because of a negative press story.
The Juice has it under excellent authority that Top Billing's Lorna Maseka lost a big clothing deal after she was accused of cheating on her hubby with Katlego Maboe a few years back.
