I was killing myself’ – Naomi Campbell speaks about her abuse of drugs and alcohol to cover up childhood trauma and grief

  • Naomi Campbell has opened up about her battle with drug and alcohol addiction in her early modelling days for the candid new documentary, The Super Models.
  • The fashion icon, 53, claimed she started to abuse substances as a way to deal with the grief of her childhood abandonment issues.

She added that the shocking death of her close friend and beloved designer Gianni Versace, threw her overboard.


Naomi had formed a deep friendship with the Italian fashion star and was one of many who were devastated by his death.

In the Apple TV+ docuseries, the runway legends opens up about her game-changing career path alongside fellow super models Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington.

However, the four-episode project took time to reflect on the tougher moments which took place during the height of their fame – with Naomi admitting that she was slowly ‘killing’ herself early in her career due to the amount of drugs she took in the early 90s.
