Miranda Kerr is "not estranged from her family", despite reports to the contrary.

The model's parents recently told Australian docudrama Family Confidential that they hadn't seen her in over a year, and that she was surrounded by "yes" people, reports E! News.

But many Australians are said to "feel incredibly sorry" for Miranda after seeing what appears to be a exploitative act from her family.

"There is no truth to her being estranged, she speaks to her family members regularly," a source close to the family said.

"She directly employs her dad, brother, aunt and uncle, she recently flew her cousins out to spend Christmas with them in New York. [Miranda's] career was never going to keep her in Australia. To flourish, she had to venture overseas, like many aspiring models and actresses [from Down Under] do. Most Australian expats don't get home once a year, especially with a toddler."

Miranda's parents said they hadn't seen grandson Flynn in a year, the 30-year-old's son with Orlando Bloom.

Her father added that he found out about his daughter's divorce through Orlando.

"I remember him saying, 'We're always going to be family,' and that's how we'll treat Orlando, Miranda and Flynn," John Kerr is quoted as saying. "We're all family."

He also blames Miranda's high-profile life for keeping her away from them.

According to John, the supermodel would have been better off marrying someone closer to home.

"After what I know now, I would rather she did just marry a nobody because you really can't get that family time by yourself," John told Family Confidential.

"I just hope Flynn grows up and he wants to be with his nan and pop. I wish she was just a normal, everyday girl, I really do."
