Golden Globes Ditched Fiji, But Don't Blame 'Fiji Water Girl'

Celebs at the upcoming “Golden Globe Awards” won’t be getting their thirsts quenched by bottles of Fiji this year … but it ain’t “Fiji Water Girl’s” fault.

The artesian water brand is not the official H2O sponsor at the 2020 Golden Globes — that honor now goes to Icelandic Glacial — but the reason, we’re told, has nothing to do with Fiji’s controversy and eventual fallout with its model, Kelleth Cuthbert (real name Kelly Steinbach).

Sources connected to the awards show tell TMZ … the Hollywood Foreign Press Association had a 2-year deal with Fiji, but it ended last year. We’re told it decided to go with Icelandic because it’s considered more environmentally-conscious and will donate water to a cause picked by the HFPA … not because of what went down with “Fiji Water Girl.”
