Catwalk queen Kate Moss has always lived by the mantra ‘never complain, never explain’ but her younger sister Lottie has bravely decided to reveal her own struggle with mental health – and the distress it’s caused her.
In response to Kanye West’s public breakdown last week, Lottie, 22, issued a series of impassioned online posts promoting awareness for mental health – and revealed: ‘I have ADHD.’
The condition she suffers from – Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder – is characterised by symptoms such as fidgeting and acting without thinking.
In her posts, the Calvin Klein model, who appeared on the cover of Vogue at 18, revealed she had to deal with ‘so many people thinking it’s some made-up thing, or try to tell me how I should feel, or that it isn’t that bad, especially people that haven’t ever had a mental illness’.
Lottie also told her 330,000 followers: ‘My struggles have caused me to act out of character. I was becoming a person I didn’t really like which is why I numbed myself with substances.’
During lockdown, she stayed with Kate in her Cotswolds home, so I really hope the respite has helped Lottie find some peace.
British tennis star Johanna Konta has added a very unusual string to her, er, racket – she’s set up a dog-walking business.
The 29-year-old and her film producer boyfriend, Jackson Wade, have launched The Sniff Club, which charges up to £25 an hour for their ‘premium service’ – which is taking take pets for a stroll.
At least Johanna should have plenty of spare balls for a game of ‘fetch’!
