Victoria's Secret has a PR problem.

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is filming in just three days, but it's already falling apart.

Following reports that models including Gigi Hadid have been pulled out from the Shanghai show over alleged issues with getting Chinese visas, it's being said Katy Perry also won't be in attendance!

The songstress was rumored to be one of the performers, alongside Harry Styles and Miguel!

According to Page Six, the 33-year-old was denied a visa, with a source explaining:

"She was initially granted a visa to perform at the VS show in Shanghai, then Chinese officials changed their minds and yanked her visa. For every artist who wants to perform in China, officials comb through their social-media and press reports to see if they have done anything deemed to be offensive to the country. Maroon 5 was banned a few years ago because one band member wished the Dalai Lama happy birthday on Twitter."

For Katy, it's possible her support during a 2015 concert for Taiwan, the island which has been fighting for independence from China, raised flags for officials.

It's interesting they changed their minds so last minute then.

Regardless, VS is going to need to rethink their lineup!

Thoughts??
