LOS ANGELES — Robert Moran, owner of 101 Modeling, issued a statement on Monday regarding recent rumors that his agency had been sold to Manwin.
"The rumors about Manwin buying the agency are not true," Moran said. "We have never spoken to anyone about buying the company ever."
Moran said he has received between 30 and 40 phone calls and messages since late last week regarding the rumor.
"I started getting text messages, 'congratulations on the sale,'" Moran said. "I thought it was pretty funny. I said, 'congrats on the sale? What sale? Did someone buy my car?' I had no idea where this came from about selling the company."
A Manwin spokesperson also confirmed to XBIZ it had not acquired 101 Modeling.
