A series of intersecting and stressful events formed the backdrop to the final hours of an already vulnerable and depressed Charlotte Dawson, who killed herself in her luxury waterside apartment at Woolloomooloo.

The 47-year-old television personality was coping with her two-bedroom apartment on the Finger Wharf going up for auction on Saturday, she felt she was not getting enough promotion for the Logie award votes for her former role as judge on the Foxtel reality TV series Australia’s Next Top Model, and she had recently been setting up a homewares range.

On top of that, friends say she was struggling after the 60 Minutes tell-all interview with her former husband Scott Miller, whom she had confessed she still loved and would be the only man she would ever marry.

In her last interview just a week ago with Fairfax Media journalist Jo Casamento, Dawson had said she was unsure if she was strong enough to watch the interview that cavassed their failed marriage, his battle with the drug ice, criminal convictions for drug offences, stolen goods and prohibited weapons as well as accusations he was a pimp and a drug dealer.

“I continue to fight my depression – it’s a bitch of a thing – and I fear watching something like this as it’s the most painful time in my life,” she said.

In what turned out to be Dawson’s last radio interview, she talked about leaving Australia’s Next Top Model, her failed marriage to Scott Miller and being dumped from her management company.

There was also sexual abuse in her childhood, see this video from back in 2012
