Supermodel Noami Campbell has revealed that she sacrificed searching for her soulmate to have a career in the fashion industry.
“I’d say the sacrifice is really finding that soulmate who will understand you,” she revealed in an interview with New York magazine’s “The Cut.” “It’s really like you feel if they look at you as if you’re strong…you know, I’m strong, but I’m also sensitive. I know that in relationships I have to compromise.”
Throughout her career, Campbell has been linked to some pretty baller love interests including, Hollywood actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro, U.S. r&b singer Usher, and UK rapper Skepta.
Campbell has also been engaged twice. First to U2 bassist Adam Clayton in 1993. She was later engaged to Italian businessman Flavio Briatore before they split in 2002. The couple had been together for four years.
I don’t have a problem looking at myself in the mirror anymore and facing and owning who I am,” she said. “And for sure when I was younger, I wasn’t always using it in the right way. It takes growth.”
In May, Campbell welcomed her first child — a baby girl.
“A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother,” Campbell captioned an Instagram post, which included a close-up image of her newborn’s feet. “So honoured to have this gentle soul in my life there are no words to describe the lifelong bond that I now share with you my angel. There is no greater love.”
She also revealed that she is currently working on a docuseries with fellow models Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, and Cindy Crawford.
The documentary centers on the lack of rights models have to their images and catalogs of work.
“One of the things that’s really come to surface right now for me is that we don’t have any control over our image as models, and that’s really sad. When I was doing my book with Taschen, there were a few photographers whose names I won’t say, but who we do know and who I’ve worked for over the years for, like, one dollar, who came back saying they wanted all this money to be in the book. And I was like, “Excuse me, you’ve forgotten,” she explained.
