Former Miss Universe Lynn Kelly works hard to achieve her toned figure, but in recent months she has had to defend her slim build to critics online.

Back in October, Lynn posted a selfie of herself wearing just a bra, underwear and suspenders while at the launch of a lingerie collection. The photo caused a backlash on social media, with followers complaining that Lynn's slim waist and visible ribs made her "too skinny."

News that the model had been brought to hospital last month sparked more speculation online that the 26-year-old was going to drastic measures to keep her weight down.

However Lynn spoke out against her critics today, saying she is in good health and was "taken aback" by the angry reaction her picture had caused. 

"To be honest, if you actually analyse the picture you can see that I have muscle definition… My tummy would be my smallest part. It probably does look slim from the angle I took it, but I don’t regret taking it and I think some of the negativity that came along with it was very harsh," the model said on TV3's Late Lunch Live earlier today.

Speaking about her recent visit to hospital, Lynn said it was not for any drastic health reasons. "To be honest it was a mix of things. I was under a lot of stress and I’d been working constantly – I think it was 25 days in a row with no days off," she told TV3. 

"So, it was a little bit of everything, exhaustion, it was to do with some stuff I had going on in the past as well, and my mum was sick and that was playing on my mind. I know people probably thought 'oh well I told you so, now look she’s ended up in hospital' – but it wasn’t to do with that at all.”



Irish model and former Miss Universe Ireland, Lynn Kelly has hit back at critics who said she was “too skinny” and “unhealthy” in a recent Instagram photo.

The photo in question was taken at a recent lingerie event the model worked at and features her standing in a dressing room in underwear – but many have claimed that she looks too skinny and unhealthy in the particular snap. 

The comments on the photo “stunned” the model and she featured on TV3’s Midday today to defend herself, saying that she “works her arse off” for her body and while she accepts that the lighting in the changing room may not have been the best, she has nothing to apologise for. 

Lynn also said that it is evident from her social media presence that she is a very health conscience person, often posting photos of herself in the gym and of her meals.

Lynn’s modelling agency, Assets Model Agency, also defended the model against the claims, replying to one commenter on Twitter: “we can assure you, she’s very healthy it’s just angle & lighting, you see?”
