LONDON, April 6 (UPI) -- Supermodel Heidi Klum has claimed German mail order catalogue company Otto fired her because of her pregnancy, "Celebrity Justice" reported Wednesday.

Klum lent her name and face to a line of women's wear and baby-wear marketed by the company for more than a year. She's been featured on several of Otto's mail order catalogues.

"Otto has made use of a clause and canceled my contract because I'm pregnant," Klum claimed, on her website.

However, Otto denies the claims, saying Klum's contract was canceled because she missed an important meeting.

A spokesman for Klum said no legal action is planned.
