Daul Kim’s Agency Blames Work Pressures for Her Apparent Suicide

Backstage at Yigal Azrouël's spring 2010 show.

Last week we learned that Daul Kim instant messaged with a friend about her abusive boyfriend hours before she was found hanged in her Paris apartment in an apparent suicide. Her agency finally spoke last week. "She was not able to live the normal life other girls did at her age," agents at Next said in a statement. "We suspect that she felt confused and lost after reaching the top of her career." Autopsy results released last week rule out the possibility that Kim was murdered. Her parents had said they didn't believe their daughter would kill herself.
