Delevingne opened up about she always had mental health issues for most of her life, but during the COVID-19 pandemic, things took a turn for the worse.
At the time, the U.K. native was living with then-girlfriend Ashley Benson, but when they split, she felt “really alone … it was a low point.”
“I just had a complete existential crisis. All my sense of belonging, all my validation — my identity, everything — was so wrapped up in work. And when that was gone, I felt like I had no purpose. I just wasn’t worth anything without work, and that was scary,” she admitted. “Instead of taking the time to really learn something new or do something new, I got very wrapped up in misery, wallowing, and partying. It was a really sad time.”
