One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
This is more than sad.
Charlotte Dawson, a co-judge on Australia’s Next Top Model, was found dead in her home in Sydney on Saturday morning.
According to reports, she had committed suicide, and the police stated that there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding her death.
Sadly, the 47-year-old model and TV personality had a long history of depression.
Just in 2012, Charlotte was hospitalized due to an attempt she made to take her life after being cyber bullied via Twitter.
She later became an anti-bullying ambassador.
"She was such a beautiful girl, she had so much energy and such a sense of humour but her battle with her mental illness just made it so difficult for her to really go in so many parts of her life."
Charlotte was so young. Our thoughts are with her family and friends.
