It comes after Naomi admitted her past drug and alcohol problems emerged as a way to cope with grief over her child abandonment issues, as well as the death of her close friend Gianni Versace, who was killed in 1997 shot dead.
Speaking candidly about the new Apple TV+ docuseries The Supermodels, she said: “Grief has been a very strange thing in my life because it doesn’t always (show).
‘I go into shock and go crazy when it actually happens, and later I break down. But I kept the sadness inside, I just dealt with it.’
About Gianni’s death, she added: “Azzedine Alaïa was my daddy. With him I learned about chosen families. The same goes for Gianni Versace.
‘He was very sensitive to feeling me, like he was pushing me. How would I be pushed to come out and move on if I didn’t think I had it in myself to do it. So when he died, my grief became very bad.
‘When I started using, sadness was one of the things I tried to hide. Addiction is one of those things… it’s just a horrible thing, it really is.
“You think, ‘Oh, it’s going to heal that wound.’ That is not the case. It can cause such tremendous fear and anxiety. So I got really angry…

“When you try to hide something, your feelings are… You talked about abandonment. I tried to hide that with something. You can’t cover it up. I was killing myself. It was very painful.’
Naomi went to rehab in 1999 after collapsing during a photo shoot and admitted it was ‘terrifying’ to face her problems.
She said: ‘I have always acknowledged my mistakes. I have chosen to undergo rehabilitation.
“It was one of the best and only things I could have done for myself at that moment. It’s scary to pick up the mirror and look in the mirror. It’s scary and it’s taken me many years to work on it and deal with it.”
Naomi has been convicted of assault four times for lashing out at co-workers, police officers and a paparazzo, while her anger issues – which she has also previously attributed to her difficult childhood, having never met her biological father – are still ’emerging’ . ‘ sometimes she thinks she can deal with it better now.

She said: ‘It happens sometimes. But I only now have the tools to deal with it when it arises.
‘I have to think of something outside of myself. Something bigger than myself.’
And the mother-of-two would love to help anyone else facing similar problems.
She said: ‘If I have people in my life that I love and I see that they need help, then of course I’m going to offer my help. I’m there, I’m very loyal to the people I love.”
