Shadiness of the modelling industry

A few days ago, I somehow came across a photo of a beautiful girl who's name was Ruslana Korshunova. I googled her name to find out exactly who and what she was, because her pictures looked familiar.
The shocking thing is that google told me this (at the time) 20 year old model committed suicide by jumping off of her 9th story New York apartment.
I found conspiracy theories suggesting that she got pushed because she wanted to leave the modelling industry but the "mafia" wouldn't let her. I honestly just laughed at this. Then, people were saying the New York Underground World puts models in a position of prostitution and there are "creepy rich men" that pay these girls so that they can afford to live in New York. Once again, I laughed it off,
Kind of confused about all of this, I asked a Russian model Valeria Sokolova, if she thought this was true or if she ever experienced this. She herself said that this was all imaginary stuff that people make up.
Tying this off, I'd like to remind you guys that you should always always always read  the contracts you are given to sign. When your agency gives you a contract, take it to a lawyer!! Be aware of what you promise people and don't skip it just because of excitement. I made this mistake two years ago when I skimmed through the Camp Rock 2 confidentiality agreement... ya, let's say if you know what happened (shh) if you don't, lets never mention it again! :)

Have you ever heard any stories of models and actors who are apart of some secret contract or agency?
