Dutch supermodel had a very public breakdown and suicide attempt in 2002.
After she expressed interest in modeling, a friend of hers took several pictures and without her knowledge sent them to Elite Model Management.
At the height of her modeling career she was making £10,000 a day. She started accusing close associates of rape and attempted to overdose on sleeping pills.
She grew up in Den Haag, Netherlands, her father a tax inspector and her mother a secretary.
After a long rehab, she came back to modeling, walking alongside Naomi Campbell and others at a Dior show in Paris.
