| Last updated
Molly-Mae has confirmed she is stepping down from her PrettyLittleThing job and explained the reason why.
She was reportedly paid £400,000 per month, totalling a massive salary of £5 million.
Around the same time, reports emerged claiming that the mum-of-one was leaving her role, and now, Molly-Mae has released a video on YouTube confirming the news.
Speaking on her YouTube channel, she said: "A lot of people have been asking me about PLT creative director, how's the role going, how's everything going with PLT, and everything is going incredibly with PLT… I will forever have the most insane relationship with PLT… they are literally my family. I am still working with them and doing collections and edits, but I have actually decided to step down as my creative director role."
Molly-Mae welcomed her first child, a daughter named Bambi, earlier this year with her boyfriend Tommy Fury.
The boxer appeared on a special Loose Men version of Loose Women back in May where he was joined by Vernon Kay, Paul Sinha and Martin Kemp in an episode for Mental Health Awareness Week. He hinted that the pair have discussed marriage however his boxing career has delayed plans.
Of her PLT role, Molly-Mae elaborated: "Over the last few weeks, I have realised that I'm only going to get this time once with my first-born child and I'm only going to get Bambi being four months old once and I feel like I've had to rearrange my life a little bit and lose some commitments that I did have.
"Myself and PLT have decided collectively that as much as the creative director role was incredible and I have literally loved being the creative director of PLT more than anything - it was such an amazing chapter for me - it has naturally come to an end.
"I am a mum now and I never really gave myself a maternity leave and I got straight back into work instantly because my work is my phone and showing my life is my work. The last thing I would want to be is in a role that I can't fulfil right this moment."
She continued: "There is no drama, there is absolutely no tea… nothing has gone on."
The social media influencer's departure comes a mere two months after the company's founder Umar Kamani left to pursue other opportunities.
