Kendall Jenner Explains Why She Took A Break From Modeling – ‘I Was On The Verge Of A Mental Breakdown!’
As fans of KUWK already know, last fashion season, the model of the family, Kendall Jenner was entirely away from the runway. Now, the slightly older of the two Jenner sisters is opening up about the reason why.
In an interview for LOVE magazine, Kendall Jenner revealed that her anxiety and other mental health problems completely overwhelmed her.

‘Last season I didn’t do any shows. Just because I was working in LA and I was like ‘Ooof, I cannot right now — I am going to go crazy.’ I was on the verge of a mental breakdown,’ she confessed.
The 22-year-old completely skipped Paris Fashion Week, while other models of her generation, Kaia Gerber and Gigi Hadid were there.
But while she missed the fall/winter 2018/1019 season, Kendall managed to make a comeback at the Versace show in June, during Milan Men’s Fashion Week.
At the event, she looked great in a printed dress that she accessorized with a pair of thigh-high black boots.
She went on to also tell the publication that ‘I live an extraordinary life. I would not change it for the world, but there are some days where I wish I could walk outside and nothing would be like it is right now.’
‘I have such debilitating anxiety because of everything that is going on that I wake up in the middle of the night with full on panic attacks. Where do I even start? Everything’s so horrible, it is hard to name just one thing. I think the world needs so much more love. I wish I had the power to send Cupid around this planet, as cheesy as that sounds.’
Kendall has talked about her mental health problems before on her family’s reality TV show, revealing in October of 2016 during an episode that ‘I wake up in the middle of the night and I can’t move. Everyone says I’m fine, but I don’t feel fine.’
