QOTD: Noémie Lenoir On Her Suicide Attempt
People say, ‘How could she do it, how could she try and kill herself, didn’t she think about her son?’ But they don’t understand. I love my son so much. But I didn’t think I was good enough, I thought I was poison. Poison for me and poison for him. When I was depressed I felt like I was poisoning his life by being in it.
Heavy stuff, Kickettes.
Noémie opened up to The Guardian about her suicide attempt last year. We are, of course, happy to report that Noémie is doing well and living in France with her six-year-old son Kelyan (daddy is retired footballer Claude Makélélé). She blames her actions on a “very deep depression” and calls them “really, really stupid”. She’s made a number of positive changes in her life, including learning to drive and changing her eating habits, and looks to be back on the right track.
If the accompanying fashion spread is anything to go by, we’d say that Noémie is back and better than ever. Click here to see her model looks from Lanvin, Stella McCartney, and Chanel.
