Controversial non-binary influencer Deni Todorovic has been on a downward spiral since making international headlines by spearheading an advertising campaign for swimwear brand Seafolly.
After a boycott broke out over their brand ambassadorship, Todorovic has been involved in a series of incidents that have taken place alarmed friends, family and followers – including a heated TV appearance and an airport brawl.
Daily Mail Australia can reveal that 35-year-old Todorovic flashed their genitals to two entertainment journalists – Confidential’s Jonathan Moran and Page 13’s Alice Coster – during Australian Fashion Week on Tuesday, upsetting them.
Multiple sources saw the incident.
‘He [Moran] looked very uncomfortable about what happened,” said a witness.

However, Todorovic did not apologize in a statement to Daily Mail Australia.
“Were we at fashion week or were we at church?” he said.
“Modern fashion is constantly changing and what I have written on my legs is a protest.”
Todorovic referred to faint scribbling on his thighs following his altercation with Jetstar staff at Melbourne airport earlier this week.
He had a heated hour-long meeting with airport staff in Melbourne before flying to Sydney on a Jetstar flight for the event at Carriageworks in Eveleigh in central Sydney.
Todorovic said he was subjected to “homophobic and racist” behavior by staff who asked him to pay $100 for excess baggage, then wrote in black marker: “Jetstar, suck my d***,” across the top of both their thighs.
A Jetstar representative denied that the staff did anything wrong.

He seemed upset and rested his head on his mother’s arm. No charges were filed.
“I was not in Sydney yesterday due to an incident which I am not legally allowed to discuss at the moment, but I have my mother and aunt as eyewitnesses to what happened,” they posted on their Instagram account.
Todorovic first rose to prominence when they landed a starring role as an ambassador for swimwear brand Seafolly, leading to a customer boycott in March.
But things have been loosening up for the influencer in a very public way for weeks.
Earlier this month, they began making wild accusations against close associates on social media and attacking brands they once worked with.
But their subsequent erratic behavior and rants have led to the model being dumped from several public roles by underwear label Bonds, youth charity Minus 18 and gin brand Tanqueray.
Daily Mail Australia revealed a message he sent to Bond executives threatening to expose drug-taking staff.

The email to two senior staffers read, “I have photo evidence proving I used drugs with your staff.
“If you want them leaked, I’ll be happy to share…. I’m my new manager.” Consider our contract terminated.’
“Forward this to your CEO…PAC Brands (Pacific Brands) is about to get the shock of its life. Bye b***h.’
Many of Todorović’s followers have expressed concern in recent days.
“This is from a loving place, but I’m worried about you,” one person wrote.
“Please take care of your health and sanity.”
Another wrote: “Seeing this actually makes me worry about you. Please be okay and take time off and away from social media to heal. I hope you find peace.’
Late last month, Todorovic admitted that he “loves a line of cocaine” and invited brands to drop him if they disagree.
Todorovic was recently dropped by their high-profile PR manager Pru Corrigan, who had helped propel their property to new heights.
“I’m not behind the wheel of Deni’s car anymore,” Corrigan said on Instagram.
It is with mixed feelings that I bid farewell to this time in my life. I’m very grateful for the time we’ve shared as partners, but as with everything else – the show goes much further.”

Their mother Maca is now their manager and the influencer often compares her to Kardashian “momager” Kris Jenner.
Deni, who was last cheated on by JK Rowling after their appearance on ABC’s Q&A program, posted a video on Friday acknowledging Corrigan and highlighting the work they’d conquered together.
Todorovic has also come under fire in recent weeks for accumulating his 80,000 social media followers against brands he used to work with, such as Bonds Australia, which allegedly paid Todorovic $60,000 for a partnership.
Friends, family and fans have raised concerns about Todorovic’s mental health in recent weeks.
They claimed to have been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and to have undergone treatment at Royal Melbourne Hospital.
“I’ve got a psychologist, a therapist, a psychiatrist, I’m going to the Banyans clinic, and they better not be fucking paparazzi when I get there,” they said.
