The supermodel published a touching letter in honor of the anniversary.

May 22, Naomi Campbell turned 50 years old. It is still unknown how the star celebrated her birthday in isolation. But recently, she shared holiday photos in which she poses in the living room surrounded by lush flower bouquets.

In the microblog, Naomi turned to her friends and fans with words of gratitude.

First of all, thank you all for your love and wishes! I am grateful that in my life there are such wonderful people, and for my 50 years living on this beautiful planet. Honestly, I didn’t think that I would survive to this age. I am infinitely grateful to everyone who went through all the ups and downs with me, who helped me stay on the right track,

– wrote Naomi.

Probably, here the model hinted at her “stormy youth” when she had problems with drugs and alcohol, regularly went to the police and repeatedly appeared in court due to aggressive behavior.

I had an extremely eventful life. I constantly remind myself that I am not yet completed work, I grow and learn every day. I could not have done without you. There would be no Naomi. You, your honesty and care – that means everything to me. And thank you, mother, for giving me life and important lessons,

– summed up the model.
