The condition, she said, caused her to become depressed and reclusive after “not looking like myself any longer.”
She subsequently sued Zeltiq Aesthetics, the company behind the procedure, for $50 million and settled in July 2022 for an undisclosed amount.
Ms. Evangelista was one of the top five supermodels in the world in the 1990s, and she has continued to work and has stepped back into the spotlight since her CoolSculpting procedures and side effects.
In 2022, she appeared on the cover of British Vogue, and beginning on Sept. 20, she will appear in a new Apple TV+ documentary, “The Super Models.” The project will reunite her with other 90s-era supermodels including Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford. In 1990, the four women famously appeared lip-syncing the lyrics in the George Michael video, “Freedom! ’90.”
