July 25, 2008 - PRLog -- Ruslana Korshunova, the Russian supermodel who gave up her life by jumping down from her ninth-floor Manhattan apartment on Saturday “felt confused about the direction of her life,” media quoted her ex-boyfriend as saying on Tuesday. Police said they were investigating her death as possible suicide. There were no signs of a struggle in the flat in which she had lived for two months, but a hole had been ripped in the construction netting that covered the balcony from which she apparently fell.

The coverage of the suicide of model Ruslana Korshunova, however, has one minor irritant that needs to be pointed out. Ruslana Korshunova, a 20-year-old native of Kazakhstan, a cover girl for French Elle and Russian Vogue, had lost a lot of weight in the last month and had trouble balancing her personal life and her demanding work schedule, her ex-boyfriend told the paper. Again, it is awful that this 20-year-old woman was in so much emotional pain that she jumped to her death from her Water St. apartment on Saturday. But Korshunova, no matter what the papers say, was not a supermodel.
Before her death, Korshunova had a full schedule of high-profile modeling jobs in New York and had recently returned from Paris.

The Daily Telegraph has printed her posts on social networking websites, which seem to show the young woman had feelings of being lost, confused and unloved and suffered from mood swings.
In one message three months ago she wrote: “I’m so lost. Will I ever find myself?”
An earlier posting, quoted by the New York Daily News, she wrote: “It hurts, as if someone took a part of me, tore it out, mercilessly stomped all over and threw it out.”
One cryptic entry in March reads: “My dream is to fly. Oh, my rainbow it is too high.”
Other postings revealed anger. “I’m a bitch. I’m a witch. I don’t care what you say … I know why my other relationships didn’t work out, ’cause I’m unpredictable.”
Her most recent posting, quoted by the New York Daily News, sounds like a discourse on the theme of love.
“Love is the sun, desire – only flash,” she wrote.
“Desire dazzles, and the sun gives life.”
“Love does not take away from one in order to give to another.”

While the life of a fashion model may appear to be the epitome of glamour, a London study last year found that they often have lower self-esteem and feel less fulfilled than people in other careers. The study of 56 models and 53 non-models found that the models felt more suspicious of other people, more disconnected and lonely, more impulsive and reckless, more intensely emotional and more self-centred.
“Models are often young girls from relatively normal backgrounds who’ve left their family at quite a young age, so they can be vulnerable if they’re plunged into the modelling world without any support,” says Michelle Coulter of Glasgow-based modelling agency The Look.
