Russian model, Katia Elizarova asserted that she has seen girls aged 16, being drugged by men, or absolutely drunk.
The reality TV star, 27, recalled her time modeling in Japan, where she was weighed every day after lunch to keep her weight in check.
Elizarova revealed that some people try to bring models into clubs to attract the attention of older men.

And once you reach the venue, there are 20 men “perving” at you, but you’re so hungry you don’t care, the model added.
Elizarova is currently on a mission to protect young girls from being exploited in the cruel industry.
Models go to extreme lengths to become household names and make it “big” in the business. So many horror stories of models eating cotton balls to stay slim and suppress hunger.
