Australian supermodel Gemma Ward has quit the industry, reported The Sunday Telegraph. According to the report, Ward – who celebrated her 22nd birthday last week – has revealed via her agent that she does not intend to return to modelling.


Ward has not been much in the lime-light since the death of Australian actor Heath Ledger, whom she dated briefly. She was photographed last week in New York wearing a print jacket, shorts and biker boots.

Ward’s modelling agency in New York, Viviens, announced that the Australian had no immediate plans to return to the industry. ‘Gemma hasn’t committed to returning to modelling at any time soon’, a spokeman said, adding Ward had the agency’s full support.
