It comes after a trendy vitamin brand also cut ties with Bartel for ‘not sharing its values’.  

On Sunday, JSHealth, a company who sell vitamins and supplements and are popular in Instagram circles, dumped Nadia as an ambassador after she had previously endorsed the brand on her social media.

However, in a post shared to JSHealth founder Jessica Sepel’s Instagram page on Sunday, the vitamin merchant went out of her way not to call Nadia by name – instead bizarrely rereferring to her as ‘this individual’. 

Sepel wrote: ‘Today I’ve had to make a hard decision as the founder and face of my brand, and let go of a brand endorser. I have to stand for what’s right. 

‘We are a health brand who is very serious about aligning with individuals who share the same values.’

She added: ‘In saying that, I’m human and compassion is what the brand has always represented. Mental health is the number one priority here. 

‘I truly wish this individual strength and peace during this time and although I do not condone what happened, I am a believer that humans make mistakes and we are not a brand who wishes to beat anyone when they are down.’

She concluded: ‘I stand for compassion and kindness, regardless of a situation. From female to fellow females – I wish you only peace and strength during this time. May we all find peace, always.’
