Naomi Campbell insists being single doesn’t mean she’s “lonely”.

The 49-year-old supermodel is currently single after seemingly enjoying a short romance with Liam Payne, and has said that she finds dating hard because of the industry she’s in. However, she said that she isn’t interested in looking for love right now.

“I don’t have time to be lonely.”

She said: “For me, privacy is important to know each other, and I always worry that my job will not allow that, but I have ways. I was taught that by [former flame] Robert De Niro. Being alone doesn’t mean you are lonely. I don’t have time to be bored, and I don’t have time to be lonely.”

Despite not looking for a partner, Naomi does dream of having a family one day, although she’s content with the “chosen family” she has found in the form of the young models she chooses to mentor.

“I’ll see what the universe brings me. For now, what the universe has delivered is very much in the spirit of a ‘chosen family’,” Naomi said.
