Model MIRANDA KERR has denied long-running reports she is a practising Buddhist.
The Australian catwalk beauty announced in October (13) that she had split from Hollywood star Orlando Bloom after three years of marriage.
The Lord of the Rings actor converted to Buddhism in 2004 and it has long been stated his estranged wife is also a follower of the faith, but she has now spoken out to clear up the rumor, insisting she is a Christian.
Kerr tells British magazine Stella, "No, I'm not Buddhist. Orlando is. I'm not Buddhist. I'm Christian. I pray every day. I meditate every day and I do yoga. I'm not religious, I'm spiritual. And praying is something my grandmother taught me as well. To pray and be grateful, have gratitude, is a big thing for me."
