Naomi Campbell Speaks On Being Shamed for Seeking Drug Abuse Help

She isn't here for recovery shaming.

Well known diva and supermodel Naomi Campbell is 46 and is still booking covers. This month she graces ES Magazine, where Khloe Kardashian recently appeared, and in it, she shares the negative backlash she received when she was attending Narcotics Annoymous meetings.

Campbell reveals, "People tried to shame me about the fact that I went to get help. You should never feel shame because recovery is a positive thing. But when I first went, people were not open about this stuff. Everything like this should be talked about openly...mental heath issues, postpartum depression — there are so many different things. Come together and help each other, that's important...We're not really supposed to promote my program. My phone is always on for anyone that needs help and guidance in that situation. Like people's phones and doors have always been open for me. You have to share it back."

When asked about the possibility of starting a family, the 46-year old replied, "I think about having children all the time...But now with the way science is I think I can do it when I want...I do want a father figure. I think it's important."
