The Byron Bay native told the Courier Mail earlier this month: ‘It is kind of one of the only industries where women are paid more than men.’ 

Jordan went on to say he believed the pay disparity was ‘a good thing and fair’.

Jordan, who counts fellow models Bella Hadid and Hailey Baldwin as friends, explained his stance: ‘Sales in men’s and women’s products is completely different, it is so ­obvious and fair that women make more money in modelling.’

The chance meeting took place when he was caught stealing matches from a convenience store.

Jordan previously told New York Magazine about the incident: ‘I wanted to have a cigarette, but I couldn’t get a lighter because apparently you have to be over 18, so I decided I was gonna take matches from the counter.’
