- "There's no way she would have killed herself," Kira Titeneva, a friend from Korshunova's home town, told the New York Daily News. "She loved life so much".
- "The New York Post quoted a friend of Korshunova claiming she had just returned from a modeling gig in Paris and seemed to be "on top of the world."
- "There were no signs," he said. "That's what's driving me crazy. I don't see one reason why she would do that."
What I have written, is mostly written as a word of caution, before embarking on your dream of becoming a socialite, or your rise to fame you should remember your core group of people who you trust. These people can make up your team, that in severe cases, can save your life.
Suicide is fairly common amongst mind altering pharmaceutical drug users, and quite possible more so amongst those whose career depends on staying rail thin (anorexic)
Suicide by jumping, also makes a clean cover up.
The creepy rich may sometimes play a part in the lifestyle of beautiful models, socialites or those seeking stardom with no budget for getting there.
Who gets to keep these kept women, and what does it mean to be kept? Can they still have boyfriends and girlfriends if they are kept? The answer is yes. Is this consistent with a girl or a guy madly in love with a significant other, yet still belonging to someone as a commodity?
Russian mafia for model's
It has been suggested that the model may have been desperate to get out of the fashion industry but been prevented from doing so by murky underworld bosses who manage the Eastern European models.
Ruslana´s death might be related to the model wanting out desperately and not being allowed to do so by the Paris-NewYork-Moscow mafia that controls teenage models. Some reports have linked the economic giant Gazprom with creating a web of model managment and discovery with a a tightly controlled escort spinoff that sets up supermodels with corporative tycoons. Most of the girls being from Eastern Europe.
The sexual trafficking of very young men and women from Kajzistan and surrounding areas is epidemic as are the resulting suicides.
Vladislav Novgorodtsev, Korshunova's life coach, described the young model as heartbroken, lonely, and homesick. According to statements made to the media by Novgorodtsev, Korshunova revealed to him that she was suicidal in the past, having tried to kill herself using various methods at least five times before, beginning when she was 15 years old. In January and February of 2008, she visited the Roza Mira Training Center in Moscow. Novgorodtsev revealed that the model had once confessed to him she was in love with a young man from Moscow, but that nothing could come from the relationship because he was married. Further, Korshunova was also having financial troubles and was asking friends for $400 ten days before jumping to her death.
What if the commodity is beauty, and the network that discovered the beauty claims ownership? While there is freedom to travel and meet new people, there is not only a built in loyalty, but the threat of death if they try to break this connection. In some cases the threats are backed up with the hard reality of making good on them.
In lesser cases not where a mafia style model agency that discovers beautiful models in russia, claims ownership of the individual even if they don't do the actual bookings.
Korshunova was represented by IMG (New York, Paris, London and Milan), Beatrice (Milan), Traffic Models (Barcelona), Marilyn Models and iCasting Moscow, which was her mother agency. Korshunova modeled for the covers of Elle (France), Vogue (Poland) and Vogue (Russia). She also modeled in print-ads for Blugirl by Blumarine, Clarins, Ghost, Girbaud, Kenzo Accessories, Marithé & François, Max Studio, Moschino, Old England, Pantene Always Smooth, Paul Smith and Vera Wang lingerie.
Zach Eichman, a spokesman for Korshunova's agency, IMG, which also handles Heidi Klum and Kate Moss, said "she was one our very good working models. She did a lot of shows and successful campaigns.
"Everyone I have spoken to is very surprised and the feedback I am getting from people is that there was little indication that there was something troubling her and that she was always very happy."
There is creepy rich people whom spend money on these models, and give them what they want most, a daily affirmation of their beauty, worthy of someone lavishing money on them.
These creepy rich men and women also supply the beautiful models with drugs, alcohol, expensive food, as well as their own place to live, cab money.
But beware to these young and beautiful people gullible enough to give enough attention and sex to these creepy rich men and women. If you cross the creepy rich, and don't give them what they want, and when they want it, your life may be in danger.
Is this all worth losing your life over?
