She was mysteriously followed by a bodyguard down the catwalk at a recent Myer fashion show.And now Woman’s Day has claimed that Jennifer Hawkins, 33, took the measures because she feels a ‘real threat to her life.’

The beauty’s representatives swiftly claimed that the process was ‘protocol,’ but recent reports have now questioned whether the Australian icon is ‘preparing for the worst.’
‘Sources believe they were trying to cover up a frightening truth,’ Woman’s Day reported.
‘Some believe it could be her famously close relationship with US president Donald Trump that is the cause of the new fears, rather than the attention of overzealous fans.’
The publication claims Jennifer was a fan of the US president, who co-owned the Miss Universe Pageant when she won in 2004.
They added that this friendship ‘could leave her in the firing line, and even with a real threat to her life.’
According to the magazine, people who are even vaguely associated with the controversial president have been ‘forced’ to beef up their security measures due to fears for their personal safety.
Jennifer’s so-called ‘media blackout’ during his election campaign has added to the publication’s suggestions that the fashionista is scared she could become the target of crazed anti-trump protesters.
Following the Myer incident, the beauty’s representatives insisted that there was nothing untoward about the presence of guards.
‘It’s protocol for us to have security at any event with Jen when the public is involved. Booking security is like booking hair and make-up’, a spokesperson told The Daily Telegraph.
They also clearly stated that they had never requested the security, and their inclusion in the show had nothing to do with Jennifer’s personal safety concerns.Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Jennifer for comment.
