Telecommunications firm Telefonica Germany and its subsidiary Alice will stop working with 23-year-old model Vanessa Hessler and remove her face from its website within hours, spokesman Albert Fetsch said Monday.

“Vanessa Hessler has failed to distance herself from her comments on the conflict in Libya,” Mr Fetsch said.

Hessler had been the company’s advertising face for years, and giant posters featuring the model were a fixture in many German cities.

Hessler told the Italian magazine Diva e Donna that for four years she had been dating Muatassim Gaddafi – who was captured and killed in Libya alongside his father this month.

“I didn’t have any contact with him since the uprising broke out, but our relationship was one of passion,” she was quoted as saying by the magazine. “The Gaddafi family is not as they are being depicted, they are normal people.”
