Jennifer made an announcement today about a new clothing collection she’s collaborated with in partnership with a fashion brand called Naked Truth. She visited the Yahoo Style studio in New York where she was interviewed by Joe Zee and Ashley Graham.
Jennifer has sent an statement to the media after being criticised for leaving her dog inside an allegedly hot car with the windows cracked opened for a few minutes while picking up some laundry Wednesday morning in Vancouver. A reporter who happened to be in the area and a passerby raised their concerns to Jennifer about the incident.
On Thursday, Jennifer told Global News in a statement: “I have loved dogs my whole life. They’ve been in my life since the day I was born. Every dog I’ve had has been a rescue. I would never ever jeopardize an animal’s safety. Ever.
I’ve worked with dogs in obedience, agility and shepherding training. I am not only a loving dog owner but a discerning one.
The morning was a cool 73 degrees. I, and others, were wearing jackets. I rolled all four windows down and left the car for five minutes to pick up laundry, my car visible to me the entire time.
I wondered why two people were congregated by my car taking pictures of my girl. Proud mama thought it was because she’s so gorgeous. While I appreciate their vigilance and what must have felt like courage on their part, they were barking up the wrong tree.”
