Goth-rocker Nick Cave's model son JETHRO has been dropped as the face of Aussie department store Myer amid reports of his erratic behaviour.
The teenager has appeared in youth campaigns for the company in recent months, and was all set to walk the runway at the department store's gala show in Melbourne on Monday (23Mar09).
But he has been cut from rehearsals.
Myer spokesman Mitch Catlin tells the Sydney Daily Telegraph, "After the first day of rehearsals it was clear that Jethro was not the right fit for what we want from our models in a Myer parade. His term with Myer ended at the end of Sunday's rehearsals."
Catlin adds Cave's edgy look was too extreme for the slick and stylish Myer extravaganza.
But insiders tell the publication Jethro's bad behaviour was to blame.
A spokeswoman at Viviens Models, which represents Cave, claims he has been battling a bout of influenza, and was looking forward to the Myer show.
He's not struggling to find work, however - he's landed a modelling gig with L'Oreal.
