Jesinta Franklin claims David Jones couldn’t afford her and AFL star husband Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin

Her name was conspicuously left off the guest list at her former employer David Jones star-studded collections launch earlier this month.

And on Friday, Jesinta Campbell took a veiled swipe at the high-end department store, claiming neither DJ’s nor Myer could afford to work with her and husband, AFL star Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin.

‘I don’t know if department stores have the budget anymore, to be quite frank,’ Jesinta told The Daily Telegraph.   

‘I don’t know if they would have the budget for us!’ Jesinta Campbell took a swipe at former employer David Jones claiming the high-end retailer couldn’t afford her and AFL star husband Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin as ambassadors

Replaced with supermodel Victoria Lee in December 2017 after two years as ambassador for David Jones, Jesinta, 27, is currently working with luxury store, Harrolds.

And the beauty – who now goes by the last name Franklin – claimed it was nice to not be ‘boxed into one little department store.’ 

‘I’m really happy being able to work alongside the likes of Harrolds and and wear the best of the best,’ she said.

Sitting front row at last week’s Myer Spring Summer Launch, Jesinta set tongues wagging she was set to sign with David Jones’ competition.

And according to last weekends Sun Herald, ‘[Jesinta] and her manager Annie Kelly were spotted schmoozing Myer’s new CEO John King post-show,’ fueling rumours of a collaboration.

Meanwhile, the rumours come after longtime Myer ambassador Jennifer Hawkins was reportedly replaced with Elyse Knowles ‘at a fraction of the price’.

Earlier this month, Jennifer, 34, took to Instagram to make the announcement that she will retire from working with the department store. 

The former Miss Universe wrote: ‘It was simply time to move on and Myer will always hold a special place in my heart.’

But reports suggest The Block winner inked a deal for $300,00 to replace Jennifer, who it’s suggested was on a $1.3 million contract.
